Wedding guest hair and makeup ideas


Last Saturday my friends Sally and Eric made it official by getting hitched. Their ceremony was at 1, but drinks didn't start until 6 -- I needed to execute an easy, almost effortless look that would last with minimal touch-ups, because I didn't want to fuss about.

I replicated my makeup featured in a recent review about Bobbi and Katie's Palette, except this time I wore Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge in Raspberry on my lips (topped with clear lip gloss) instead of Pretty Powerful. Also, I'm super thankful for waterproof mascara, specifically Maybelline's Full 'N Soft Mascara. Lots of happy tears were shed.

As for my hair, I decided to braid it. Melbourne weather has been especially fickle these past few weeks, particularly in the rain department (hello, frizzy city). Would you believe it if I told you my braid actually starts behind my right ear? Check out one of my all-time favourite hair tutorials from AskSash for more information.

Finally, here's a better look at the dress I wore to their wedding. This black and white striped number is from J.Crew and it's on sale, too!

A little bit about the dress.. it zips in the back, is almost entirely made of cotton (talk about comfy) and it can be dressed up or down.

Congratulations Sally and Eric!
