I started this post thinking I would write a basic roundup of my favorite bridal makeup video tutorials, but SURPRISE … time after time I always keep going back to the same source. So instead, this post has evolved into a love letter to Pixiwoo. With a bajillion views, Sam and Nic are two makeup artists with a bomb.com Youtube channel that features DIY makeup tutorials. And these girls are good. Fantastic, actually. Pixiwoo even regularly features makeup tutorials to mimic popular celebrity looks (Angelia Jolie makeup tutorial, anyone?) and has a full gamut of bridal makeup tutorials.
For a budget bride, doing your own makeup can be an absolute necessity. And in my opinion, Pixiwoo is the absolute best resource! Here are some of our favorite bridal makeup tutorials to get you started.
Now, I know the next video is a drag makeup tutorial, but stay with me here. Believe it or not, this was actually my most helpful video! Pay special attention to these contouring and highlighting tips. For girls with a round, full face like me, this was the difference between date-night-out-makeup and it’s-my-wedding-day-bitches-makeup!
And last but not least, the classic Audrey Hepburn, my absolute favorite tutorial!
Man, November got here fast! I guess time flies when you’re busy having wedding blog fun. We kick off this week with a gorgeous budget bridal look! I love the pale tint of this champagne bridal outfit. Throw in some sparkly stud earrings to die for (they’re CZs!), plus a sexy suede pump, and you’ve got a winning outfit. At only $704 for the entire outfit, you’re budget will be happy, too!
I’ve been on a purple kick lately (did you see our new purple, Bistro Chalkboard wedding invitations?). With purple on the brain, it only seemed fitting to create an amethyst bridal look that is both elegant AND budget friendly! Paired with cute peep toe pumps and drop earrings to DIE for, this bridal look is sure to turn heads. Plus, at only $864 for the entire outfit, your wedding budget will love you too!
In case you haven’t noticed, I have a thing for the ’50s. When I saw this dress I pretty much fell out of my chair! Swooooooooon! I don’t know if it’s the lace details or the faint blush hue, but this dress just SPEAKS to me, ha! Pair this beautiful gown with some blingin’ blush accessories (omg those SHOES!) and you’ve got a seriously gorgeous, modernized 1950s bride.
I’m not normally a huge fan of ruffles, but doesn’t this dress just make you swoon? I love, love, love the cascading layers on this beautiful gown! Paired with an ivory peep toe pump and some classic accessories, this bridal look is sure to impress. Plus, with a total of only $1,000 for the entire outfit, your pocket book will love you too!
