We are starting the day off with our beautiful friend and makeup artist extraordinaire, Lauren Napier of Lauren Napier Weddings....Lauren is taking a few minutes out of her busy schedule to share a few amazing makeup tips to share with all the bridesmaids today...let's see what fun tips Lauren has for us....Enjoy!!

"Calling all bridesmaids! You've made it through the season without  expanding your dress size, won the impossible mission and found the matching shoes, selected the perfect nail polish color that doesn't 
clash with your bouquet. So what's next? Covering the tan-lines that you got during the bachelorette party weekend. Go for a head to toe golden goddess look, it will eliminate the tan-lines and make you look  like the "hot bridesmaid" at the wedding. 

Begin with your makeup;  apply a concealer one shade lighter than
your  foundation throughout the eye area, high plains of the face and  the  cheekbones. Apply liquid foundation with a moistened sponge in a stippling motion then blend outward toward the hairline, temple and chin. Lightly powder with a shimmering blush or bronzer. Be sure to blend the face,  and down into the jawbone and neck for the perfect bronze look. 

* Remember to hydrate, makeup always glides onto hydrated skin more smoothly. Use a blend, 3 parts foundation and 1 part bronzer to create  an even bronzed skin tone throughout your neck, chest upward into the  jawbone. Buff your custom blend foundation onto the skin with a short  haired buffer makeup brush. Powder your foundation blend with a loose  translucent powder to ensure a smudge proof bronzed bod.
 

Will you be a bronzed goddess at your best friend's wedding?"

Good Morning Everyone! Hope your Tuesday morning is going wonderful so far and you're enjoying a delightful cup of coffee as you read this morning's dose of wedding goodness! If you're new to The Cafe, my name is Alisha and I stop by every Tuesday and Friday to share some inspiration, planning ideas, or pretty color palettes. I'm extremely excited to share this post with you all today! I've been having so much fun with it. Basically, as I have been scouring blogs, magazines, and photographer's websites for the past year or so, there are always some weddings I see where what sticks out to me the most is the Bride's overall style and look. You know, the ones where you stop and think: 'This Bride is beyond gorgeous!!!' One thing I've come to realize is that there are millions of beautiful brides... everyone looks great on their big day! But the ones that make you go WOW are those who accomplish incorporating their own personal style into their look. Don't just wear a white dress- make it you! Don't hide your personality on your big day for the sake of tradition, let that inner beauty shine through! Today I'm going to share with you five beautiful ladies who did just that. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed making this post! :-)

Style #1 - Girly Glam 
This flawless style shoot by Jose Villa & Jill La Fleur has stuck in my mind since I first saw it on Style Me Pretty. I think my favorite thing about her look is her makeup, by Team Hair & Makeup. That rosy glow is perfect for achieving a look of wedding day bliss! And it's still pretty natural, letting her gorgeous smile and bright eyes take the spotlight. Also, loving that the feather hair accessory by Lo Boheme is definitely a statement - but such a great way to add color and a little style! It goes so well with the poppy bouquet... add a little rhinestone detail on the gown (not too much) and you've got the perfect girly-glam look.
