Natural Bridal Makeup

Makeup by Jill Suzanne "A bride's appearance on her wedding day should be the single most spectacular visual component of the entire celebration!" -Autumn 1986 issue Bridal Guide  Magazine I love this quote from Bridal Guide Magazine. I love it because a completely agree! Everyone waits excitedly for that first glimpse of the bride as she appears at the back of the aisle.

Best Waterproof Mascara: Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara Review

The wedding ceremony was supposed to be outside in a grassy area but was held in the tent where the cocktail hour would have normally taken place.
