Soft and Romantic Wedding Hair and Makeup

Hello sweet friends!  Today I wanted to share with you our bridal party we got to work with this past weekend!  We got to see the inside of one of the beautiful houses in Pinehurst, as the family rented one to stay in, and boy were we wow’d!  Our bride, Stephanie,  stole the show though.  Her radiant beauty was on display as we went through the day.  She opted for a soft, natural makeup look and a sweet romantic, half up half down hairstyle with two beautiful hair pins that were her “borrowed” from her sister.  Her whole bridal party was beautiful in their upstyles and matching blue collared shirts.  We drove away in smiles from such a fun getting ready party for sweet Stephanie!

Rebecca Rose Events Blog Feature!

This past Tuesday our very own Jennifer Buenviaje was featured on the Rebecca Rose Events Blog!  We’ve had the luck of working with the lovely ladies of this team before, and were honored that they chose MYD as their beauty vendor to feature.

For a quick read and to get some insight on your hair and makeup choices for your big day, check out the full blog here!

Vendor Booking Timeline

Choosing your vendors for your big day can be a daunting task.  There are so many things on your check list when first starting out, it’s hard to know where to begin.  We are loving this timeline that Wedding Wire has come out with to help manage when different vendors should be found and booked. WW X2-VendorBookingTimeline-2017_x2_v03

When it comes to hair and makeup, the earlier the better. Thus, why we love this time line.  Twelve months or more gives you time to not only find the hair and makeup artists that fit your style and needs perfectly, but allows you to get in for a trial very early on so you can check off your list what you want your look to be for your big day!

We here at Makeup for Your Day, love traveling world wide to get brides ready.  We’ve seen some pretty spectacular venues out there and look forward to seeing more breathtaking places for gorgeous ceremonies and receptions.  For you newly engaged couples out there, be sure and check out this list to explore beautiful wedding venues in the Raleigh area as well as all over the world!copy-of-mikkelpaige-merrimon_wynne_house-makeup_for_your_day_0009

Lindsay + Hal

Hello MYD Beauties,


Lindsay and Hal said I do with a touch of sophistication and lot of romance. With the timeless The Umstead as the setting, it wasn’t hard to immediately fall in love with the  wedding day. We loved Lindsay’s big romantic curls and elegant gown. The touch of silver in the bridesmaids dresses and white flowers gave their wedding the perfect amount of sophistication. Did we mention the ice cream? How could you not fall in love over the perfect ending, a Mr. & Mrs. ice cream cone!


Megan S and Valentina did a great job on the brides hair and makeup, and the bridesmaids looked great with the help of Dee and Kelsi!

Did Somebody Say Pool Party?! 

Hey MYD Beauties!

I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready for pool parties, the beach, & laying out getting that nice summer tan!

First off, I want to start by saying obviously you don’t have to wear makeup to the pool or beach. If you’re comfortable not wearing any that’s awesome! Let your skin breathe! However, I personally just feel a little more comfortable with a little something on. Obviously you don’t need a full face of makeup at the pool, so here is my favorite go to makeup look for any pool party or beach trip with friends! Even if you’re not wearing makeup sunscreen is super important!! This is a must for anybody that’s going out in the sun. It should be apart of you’re morning skincare routine, but especially if you’re planning on being in the sun all day!

My go to is a BB cream or tinted moisturizer.  This is a great way to hydrate your skin and add a small amount of coverage. It shouldn’t be a thick, cakey layer of foundation. Just a very light weight, sheer coverage, hydrating moisturizer! I will also add a small amount of bronzer on my cheeks and the frame of my face. Also, a little bit of highlight on the tops of my cheekbones! For both the bronzer and highlighter I prefer a cream product in the summer just because it will last a lot longer! I keep the eyes very simple… just a coat of waterproof mascara!

This look literally takes me five minutes and is great for the summer! It’s the perfect amount of makeup for the “no makeup” makeup look.

XOXO, Caitlynn
