Any brides going full glam on their wedding day?

I've seen a lot of brides going for a more natural look (which is beautiful!) but is anyone going BIG on their makeup? I tend to play with my makeup everyday and always wear a full face. It's how I express myself so i definitely want to stay true to myself on the big day. Anyone else plan on doing a full dramatic face? False lashes, contour, highlight, bold brow... the whole shebang?

    I'm going for a more natural look, but you definitely rock the glam look! I wish I could pull that off haha. I can just hear my grandmother telling me I look like a clown . I'm still going to do false lashes and some contouring and highlighting. I really want my eyes to pop in pictures.

    Lol oh my goodness your grandmother

    I think your eyes will really pop with the falsies. I know they sure help me! My eyes disappear when I take my falsies off for the day

    I love my grandmother, but I don't think there's ever been a day she hasn't commented on my appearance lol. What kind of falsies do you use? What do you think works best? I tried some with glue and just couldn't get them close enough to my lashes.

    I'll be doing something along these lines (but with contour and bronzer). My hair will also be half up half down. I don't usually wear makeup, so if I'm going to, I dont want it to look like I'm not.

    YES I AM. As full glam as I can get! I bought 26 inch extensions (my hair is about 22 inches so not a huge addition) for thickness & length. I'm having a lash lift & tint done prior and getting my face dermaplaned for better makeup application. I'm doing full falsies (big ones) and red lipstick! I want to be pretty tan too, and have really white teeth! I'll have long fake nails too (I normally have fake ones, just not super long ones). I never get dressed up (but love doing it) so I knew I'd want to be super fancy on my wedding day since I never get to do it otherwise! I've spent a lot on my hair and skin over the past year to try to get it as healthy/bright as possible.

    I really want to go full on glam for my wedding, which is why I hired a makeup artist. I only do minimal makeup in my everyday life. But this is a very special day!!

    Personally I love Lilly Lashes. But really any lashes work as long as the strip line is thin and not that thick kind. I use lashes every day and the trick that i found works best for glue is to make sure you have some coat of mascara (already dried not wet) on your own eyelashes. Apply the glue to the false lashes and give them at least 30 seconds - 1 minute to let the glue set before applying to your own lashes. And viola. I find the mascara on your own lashes helps the falsies stay put longer. They last me 14 hours all day every day from morning to work to the gym after work.

    I love how defined your lips look in the dark red!

    I love lash extensions! Make sure you pick a technician who's work you love. View her album of work. And yes to spray tan! Just make sure you don't plan on getting wet or sweaty on your wedding day because sometimes the coat of spray tan tends to run off!

    A woman after my own heart I say this as I type with my 22 inch extensions put in, summer tan and long bright claws

    Ooh i'm sure the lash lift and tint will really define your brows. Mine are microbladed so I really don't have to do anything to them. I can't wait to see your full glam look with the red lips! What color do you plan on having your nails done in? I'm kind of a sucker for brights and anything extra but not sure if I should take it down a notch for the wedding.

    I'm definitely going for the glamour. I want to look extra special on that day.

    I've never been a natural look type of a girl. I have to have color

    So whatever the makeup artist wants to do, to make me look my best, I'm all for it!

    Hahahaha! I bought clip in extensions, I wash my hair everyday so I couldn't do sew in or fuse in. I'll probably have them color in my brows but they are already brown so it's a good contrast. I'm going to do ombre french coffin shaped. I think it's just a classic look and looks okay when it grows out (during the honeymoon) then I'll do a bright white shellac on my toenails! I love fun nails but I just want to make sure they grow out okay.

    Honestly, clip ins are so much pretty. Sewn in, fusion or tape ins really weigh down heavily on your hair. At least with clip ins you can take them in and out whenever the mood strikes. I love coffin shape on nails! That's my go to or the almond shape lately. I think with toenails a fun color is always appropriate just with our nails maybe stick to a more neutral yes?

    Thanks! I'm obsessed with the red. But I'm also really pale, so I bought the purple. I felt like the red might be too vampy for the soft romantic wedding vibe I have going on. Haven't decided yet! I also got 24 in clip in extensions and am getting square oval acrylic nails, probably in a lavender and glitter color.
