Bridal Show Month: The Wed Tour

February is Bridal Show Month and I am documenting all of the shows Makeup for Your Day attended! This time we were on The Wed Tour of Raleigh.

This was a fun event because guests took a trolley between several different venues where different vendors were set up.

Makeup for Your Day was set up at the Merrimon Wynne! This is one of my favorite venues in Raleigh just because the bridal suite is so gorgeous!

I was in love with the paper crane display cascading from the center of the house! The entire Merrimon Wynne was glammed out with splashes of navy, gold and fuschia.

I spy our spread in Trendy Bride magazine which was shot at the Merrimon Wynne!

This was a very intimate event with only a handful of vendors at each venue. We had the honor of sharing space with vendors like Perry Vaile, Donovan’s Dish, Erin McLean Events and Bunn DJ company!

I will continue to document the bridal shows we attended in February on the blog! Catch us tomorrow to see where Megan and I ended up next!

I had so much fun at this show because we come to the Carolina Inn several times a year for weddings, and it was great to see the place totally decked out. Several of our artists & stylists were able to come to the event to meet all of the brides that came out to the show.

We even got to hang out with Heidi Dawson, the director of catering for the Carolina Inn and a good friend of the Makeup for Your Day team. One of our resident stylists, Megan is getting married this year and was able to attend the show with her fiance, Anthony!

One of my favorite parts of bridal shows is the food! I don’t know that I have seen so many different food vendors in one place before! We had cake, pie, chicken and waffles on a stick, and there was even a s’mores bar. Yes.. a buffet where you could make your own s’mores. YUM! Jen and Susanne had to grab a cheerwine and donuts!

Tasty treats were available all over The Carolina Inn!

I will documenting all of the bridal shows Megan and I went to in the month of February on the blog over the next few days! Please tune in tomorrow for more!

See you at the next show!

MYD Bride Leah’s Charming Southern Wedding

Today we are extremely excited to share some gorgeous photos from Leah and Austin’s wedding. Leah is such a beautiful and sweet Southern girl and we absolutely loved working with her for her big day! Leah and Austin wanted a Southern wedding and used a stunning blush, peach and gold wedding palette – everything at their wedding was beautiful, especially Leah!

Two talented members of the Makeup for Your Day team were there. Jennifer House was on site for hair and Brenna there to do makeup for the girls. We absolutely love Leah’s bridal look. We think that her romantic textured updo looks amazing with her classic defined makeup. This gorgeous low bun was accented with an incredible hair piece. For makeup, Leah’s look was natural and feminine accenting her amazing eyes and smile!

Thank you to Nancy Ray Photography for the amazing photos!

How to Get Perfect (and we mean Perfect) Brows

Do you ever wonder how people get those perfect, to die for brows? The Beauty Department shares an incredible tip to help get those brows looking beautiful! Use a wide-tooth comb to ensure clean lines that are even and symmetrical.

Hold the comb in place and use an eyebrow pencil to shape the brows at the inner and outer corners of the brow (see photo between steps 4 and 5.) Next, use a brow powder and an angled brush to fill in the brow, pressing the powder against the direction of hair growth. Lastly, comb the brows with a brow gel. 
And you’re done! You will have beautifully even, symmetrical and perfect brows. 

Beautiful Bridal Headbands

We absolutely love when brides use hair accessories. We think they can be such a beautiful addition to a bridal hairstyle. From flowers, to beads and other embellishments – they are versatile and can be worn with your hair down, or in a beautiful updo.
