Lauren and Mark tied the knot at the beautiful Matthews House in Cary, North Carolina. Their sweet loved was captured beautifully by Nancy Ray Photography. We loved working with Lauren and hope you enjoy these beautiful images that celebrate sweet love!
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!
Hello all my favorite MYD Beauties! I hope you’re enjoying these back-to-school days and settling in to your new routines as we transition in to fall.
It’s well known with family and friends that summer time is definitely my favorite time. Being super cold-natured, I actually despise the winter. That all being said, I do have very fond feelings about autumn simply because it’s the best time of year to express yourself through fashion and beauty. I mean, hello, the 2 inch thick fashion Bible (Vogue) launches all of the fall “must-haves” and “oooh I wish had the money to splurge on” goodies!
This year, I’ve challenged our MYD team (and subsequently YOU!) to choose 3-4 products in your cupboards, vanity, shelves, showers, etc to finish off during the month of September. Why? Well, to make room for all the new fall arrivals, of course! We’re calling this our #septempties challenge.
We’re going to upload videos and posts throughout the month from our team finishing off some of their products from home and we’d love to hear about yours! Upload a video of yourself with your challenge products or your finished off #septempties and let us know your thoughts: did you love it, hate it, would you buy it again? We’re all beauty junkies here so we can’t wait to hear your reviews! Most of all…we want to know what you’re finishing things off FOR. What are you replacing your empties with?!
Stay tuned for my own video update later this week. I’ll be polishing off these gems this month:
I can’t wait to see your videos and hear all about your progress with emptying out your current products! Please use the hashtags: #mydbeauty and #septempties so we can easily keep up with all your videos to respond. Of course, we’d love you to tag us, too @makeupforyourday on Instagram and @makeup4yourday on twitter. Good luck!

Tea Anyone? This darling styled shoot was done at the Glass Box in downtown Raleigh. Bridal showers and parties are such a good excuse to get all dolled up with your girlfriends.
This shoot will appeal to our brides who are interested in staying on trend all while keeping with sophisticated southern style. Our bride is wearing a Makeup Forever lip stain with a Lorac Gloss to keep her lips a gorgeous shade of Fuschia all day, even through a tea party. A subtle neutral toned cut crease in her eyeshadow is a soft way of showing off those gorgeous eyes. Kensley is also donning a fishtail top knot. This style can be worn everyday, but with a touch of elegance is transformed into a more refined look.
Our blonde bridesmaid is sporting a textured top knot. While it is more of a street style, a top knot is the definition of modern ease and simplicity. Brides looking to stay on trend this season are going to be looking for that simple, contemporary look. Don’t you love her subtle pop of emerald in her eyeliner?
Do you spot the hidden braids in our brunette bridesmaids half up/half down look? Braids are a must have for spring and summer hairstyles for weddings this year. By incorporating them into a classic style, it adds a splash of modern appeal. Her lavender eye shadow is the perfect touch to this soft romantic look.
These looks paired so nicely with the fun decor! A small brunch of finger sandwiches and scones go great with a yummy tea. These pops of color from the flowers are a wonderful accent to the all white color scheme of the Glass Box.

Hi MYD fans! Caroline Lucas here, reporting from Nashville, TN. I know you have been waiting on pins and needles wondering what we would be revealing this week and here it finally is! Makeup for Your Day is expanding to Music City!
Starting in Raleigh, NC and traveling all over for destination weddings we felt like it was time to branch out and explore new territory, and what better fit for our artists than the city that is known for its talent?
At Makeup for Your Day we are always looking for new inspiration, and even though I have only been living in Nashville for a short period, let me tell you, this city is full of it! From festivals and concerts, river views to mountain tops, not to mention all the great food, and growing neighborhoods – Nashville has it all.
So lucky me… I got the opportunity to use this Nashville launch post as an excuse to play tourist in my own city! Come along with me as we scratch the tip of the iceberg on this fun-filled city.
Like most things, to get started, first we need COFFEE! Okay so this might not count as a tourist moment… but can you blame a girl?
Barista Parlor is located in one of my favorite neighborhoods known as East Nashville. A little hip, trendy, and up and coming East Nashville is the place to find awesome food, craft cocktails, and off the charts coffee.
This, my friends, is a whiskey caramel latte and get a load of the DOUGHNUTS! One of each please!….*someone rolls me to my car. Looking at this all I can think is, “Where can I find a lipstick the shade of that pink glaze”? Talk about the perfect “subtle with a pop” color! That, my friends, is on our #mydbeauty to-do list!
Alright, alright, now that we’re nice and awake let’s keep it moving. Next stop… The Grand Ole Opry! This place is enormous. It was a beautiful day and good thing because you could walk for days and not experience this whole space.
My brain kept heading straight to all the amazing event spaces. The bridal photo opportunities were endless, and every where you turned was another great piece of Tennessee history. I cannot wait for this to be a regular spot for us. Seeing our artistry on a beautiful Opry bride seems like a dream come true!
Of course, the trip wouldn’t be complete without heading out to Broadway…Nashville’s self-proclaimed “Honky Tonk Highway.” Downtown Nashville is always on. Walking down the street you can hear the talent streaming out of the famous bars like, Robert’s and Tootsies.
At Makeup for Your Day, we are known for all the work we do with our amazing brides, but we also do a lot with commercial shoots and head shots, and in a city like Nashville I have a feeling that is going to keep us pretty busy.
Doing hair and makeup meant for lights and stage can be a whole different animal – which is why we make sure to train all our artists and hair stylists on the varying components for each situation. We also make sure that we carry the best products for every situation.
Unlike a lot of people who migrate to Music City, I’m not looking to have my name put up in lights… but I sure am looking forward to seeing the names and faces of our clients up there!
So this concludes the first leg of our Nashville tour. But don’t you worry, there is a lot more where this came from. Our blog, Instagram, and Facebook are going to be filled with bridal inspiration, hair and makeup trends, and our travels from Nashville, Raleigh, the beautiful NC Crystal Coast and Outer Banks, and destinations worldwide! So stay tuned and keep an eye out on all the exciting things Makeup for Your Day will be up to.
We’d love your support in our new endeavor! If you have friends, family or colleagues in the Nashville or surrounding areas that you feel would love our luxury services, please pass our info along and make sure they let us know who sent them! And if there is something you would like to see or a place in Nashville that you find inspiration please leave a comment below. We can’t wait to hear from you!
