wedding makeup

1. Wedding hair and makeup sneak prevviiiieeewwww!!!!

2. Tell me what you think. Be brutally honest.

3. Yesterday morning our building shut our water off. Not just the hot water…ALL OF THE WATER. My response was to immediately run around the apartment screaming that I had to pee and nagging the.boy about whether or not toilet flushing was a good idea.

4. His response was to call me on his way to work and remind me to pee before I left work in case the water still wasn’t back on when we got home. As if I wouldn’t have to use the bathroom between 6pm at night and 9am the next morning. IT’S LIKE HE DOESN’T EVEN KNOW ME.

5. Sorry I said pee so many times.

6. Before we get any further into pie season, I feel like I need to tell you about this new pie crust tool that I am OBSESSED with. It’s called a pastry frame. Basically it’s this large piece of square canvas that let’s you roll out pie crust without all the sticking and the cursing and the flour mess. (And PS – this is SO not sponsored! I got this as a bridal shower gift and love love love it!)

7.Β The people who invented the phrase “easy as pie” definitely had one of these.

8. The.Boy got home later than normal yesterday and was SHOCKED that I wasn’t sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for votes to be counted. Again: IT’S LIKE HE DOESN’T EVEN KNOW ME.

9. Not that there’s anything wrong with sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for votes to be counted. But, I was kind of in the middle of some major pie crust-ing.

10. Priorities.

    JOANNE! You look like a princess! You are going to be such a beautiful bride. πŸ™‚
    Oh my gosh – hope you have water. It is such an inconvenience. And I know … we had a water pipe burst this morning.

  2. debbie says:

    You look absolutely beautiful. I am being totally honest. I love the makeup done on your eyes. Perfect for you. I wouldn’t change anything. Your hair looks gorgeous too. But your eyes really stand out. Perfect. I looked up the pastry frame on Amazon and you can believe i am ordering one. Whoever thought of this is a genius!

  3. You look stunning! And I totally understand the water being shut off – I have a tiny bladder haha

  4. you look beautiful!!! Love the hair down πŸ™‚ I wish pie got me excited but I do like me some crust.

  5. Joanne you look wonderful! I love the down hair for a wedding.
    Water being shut off is awful. Ours was a few weeks ago and I was totally stressing out about it!

  6. I can not wait for these wedding pictures! You’re killing me girl! Hair looks fabulous and I can’t wait to see you in the dress. πŸ™‚

    Hate when the water is out it happens several times a year and there’s never a convenient time for it!

    Have a beautiful Wednesday!

  7. kita says:

    I think you look beautiful!!!!

  8. You can definitely flush a toilet if the water is off, but you’ll only get one flush! Hope it came back on quickly. My coworker has well water so when the power goes out, their pump goes out. She went a WHOLE WEEK without a toilet. I would’ve died.

  9. Hello gorgeous!!! (Please tell me you read that in a Barbra Streisand voice.) Love the makeup and hair. That eye makeup, tho. Va-va-voom! Okay, I’m done being weird. But really – you are going to make a beautiful bride! I feel like I don’t totally understand the ramifications of water being shut off…probably because I’ve never had that happen…fingers crossed that it doesn’t happen, like, today or something. Anyhoo, hopefully it gets turned back on soon!

  10. you are going to be such a beautiful bride!!! Please tell me that water situation is fixed!

  11. Megan says:

    I think your hair and makeup look gorgeous! I had my hair half up, half down too. I think you get the best of both worlds… nothing annoying in your face, but gorgeous curls too!

  12. SallyBR says:

    Make up and hair are GORGEOUS, I love the hairstyle, it shows your face and frames it perfectly

    the eye make up is superb. No other adjective comes to mind. I would go for a slightly darker lipstick, nothing too dramatic, but just a slightly more assertive color to balance the contrast between eyes and mouth.

    I wonder what kind of earrings you will choose…. I am an earring fanatic!

  13. Meg says:

    Aw, you look so beautiful! The makeup/hair trials are so fun, though mine induced a minor panic attack (my stylist and I were not seeing eye to eye. At all). I do agree that I’d like to see a slightly darker lip, but that’s totally your call. πŸ™‚

  14. I think you’re going to look fabulous.

  15. you look gorrrrgeous! and oooooh thanks for the pie tip lady!

  16. You look so dang pretty in that photo I want to kiss you!!! Question though – do you have a hairpiece? Like a veil, flower, cage, pretty barrettes, etc.?? I’m trying to visualize “the look”.

    And hells yes to pastry frames!!! So worth the money!!!

  17. The make up looks gorgeous! Also can you ever win- seems like you have the worst apartment luck!

  18. Joanne, what do you think of your make-up? YOU need to love it because you’re only getting married ONCE and you will have photos to look at forever. I LOVE the natural look and hair down . . I’m so excited for you!!! and hello?!!! this pastry frame thing?!!! oh my gawd. you learn something new everyday!!

  19. Marcia says:

    I think that hair and makeup looks great! I always wanted wavy hair.

  20. Natalie says:

    love the hair and makeup, cannot wait to see the dress!!

  21. Heather says:

    Your hair and makeup look great! It looks like you found a good stylist. πŸ˜‰

    I may have to buy that amazing pie crust frame. This would change my life as every year pie season rolls around and I end up banning everyone from the kitchen because pie crusts bring out my inner rage.

  22. Joanne – you look gorgeous! Your hair – wow – your hair!! LOVE it!
    And that pastry frame – woa – a no stick one??? I have never attempted a bona fide pie shell because of sticky fears – guess I need to get my hands on one eh?!

  23. Tina says:

    Damn! Who is that cover girl?!! You will be a stunning bride. Glad you are sharing the event here.

  24. You are gorgeous! I need to get my hands on that pastry frame! Such a great invention!

  25. annie says:

    Love your look — especially your hair!

  26. LOVE the wedding look! You’re going to be a gorgeous bride πŸ™‚

  27. cheri says:

    Love the look, perfect!

  28. Courtney says:

    You look SOOOOO beautiful! And now I need to go back up and read the rest of your post because I only saw your picture and immediately had to comment.

  29. P says:

    If that’s the preview…WOWZAH. You look absolutely stunning!!!!!

  30. Rachel says:

    Love Love LOVE the hair and make-up!! Beautiful!

  31. Kathleen says:

    Joanne, I swear that you look absolutely stunning! Your eyes! WOW! And your hair is gorgeous too! You are going to be one beautiful bride!

  32. Pie takes priority. Seriously. And you look ravishing, Jo! Seriously!

  33. Kate says:

    Love the hair and eyes – I wish there was a little more color on your lips.

  34. Christina says:

    You look amazing πŸ™‚

  35. I really love the loose curls and that faint smoky eye look! Reading my FB feed about the election results > actually watching them on CNN.

  36. I LOVE the wedding hair/makeup. Love love love. You are going to be such a beautiful bride!

    Also pie > election, in my opinion.

  37. Eileen says:

    Super fancy! I love the hair — so perfect and subtle and shiny. I might go a little lighter on the waterline liner, but I am a very “what’s makeup?” person, so take that with as large a grain of salt as you like. πŸ™‚

  38. Johanna GGG says:

    very glam – seems to be all about the eyes! anything that makes pie easier sounds good and peeing should be easy as well πŸ™‚

  39. Christine says:

    Looking really good! πŸ™‚

  40. Your hair and make up are gorgeous! I really like them πŸ˜€ I also sympathise with the no water situation. As someone who needs to pee every 2 hours or so in the day, and at least once overnight, it would have been a challenge of mammoth proportions!

  41. Joanne – you look radiant and more beautiful than ever! We are getting excited about your wedding- can’t wait!

  42. Pam says:

    I think you look BEAUTIFUL! Makeup is perfect & hair is simple but elegant.

  43. Danguole says:

    My brutally honest opinion is that you look mad pretty! Love love love it. It’s perfect.

  44. Susan says:

    I love it! I think it suits you perfectly, Joanne! So simple yet beautiful.

  45. Kelly says:

    You look so pretty and radiant girl, I honestly love it. You are going to be one gorgeous bride! And oh my gosh, that pie crust tool is brilliant!

  46. Emma says:

    Pie trick! I will defy have to hunt that down. Beautiful hair and make up Joanne!

  47. Love the hair and makeup Joanne! Did you decide to have someone come to you or are you going to a place?

  48. Sarah says:

    You look beautiful! I love the black eyeliner with the slight winged tip, and the gradient of brown eyeshadow that ends in a shimmering white shadow. As someone who has watched a few too many makeup tutorials in the hopes of looking like Michelle Phan when I go to a party, I would like to say you look AWESOME and if I could make my makeup look like that I would be pretty stoked.

    You’re going to look stunning on your wedding day. Many photos (plural) PLEASE!

    I look forward to these pie crusts and pies you speak of! That tool you mentioned looks really cool. I like how it helps pre-measure how big a pie disk to roll out.

  49. Reeni says:

    Stunning! I can’t wait to see your dress!! My Mom has one of those pie thingies! I don’t know why I don’t use it. She rolls out her sugar cookies on it too.

  50. Hotly Spiced says:

    You look so beautiful, Joanne and your hair is so silky. That’s a gorgeous look for a bride. I can’t believe your water was shut off; I know it’s first world problems but the panic when the water is turned off! xx

  51. Emily says:

    Well, gosh. I think you look amazing! Your eyes and brows are spectacular. Your hair is real pretty, too! You could probably rock a nice pink or red lipstick. I wish I could, but I have thin lips.

    I wonder what kind of pies you’ve been making. I’m going to try a pumpkin tomorrow..

  52. I love your hair and makeup! My stylist told me that you want to go for you but enhanced on your wedding day, and I think you’ve got it!

  53. You look stunning! I’ve got pastry material on my shopping list so I’m glad to hear how well it works πŸ™‚

  54. You are absolutely beautiful! I’m excited for your big day girlfriend!

  55. Baby June says:

    You look awesome!! So exciting! Just like pie! Pie is exciting! πŸ˜€

  56. I can’t wait to see your wedding!! Your makeup makes you look even more gorgeous Joanne!

  57. Per usual, I’m behind on my blog reading, but WOW! You look gorgeous!! Such an exciting time for you and your family πŸ™‚

  58. Mia says:

    Have been meaning to write for quite some days and this window is permanently open on my tab. If I can find a word that means more than gorgeously stunning it has to be princess and that’s what u are.
    yes ur eyes , I feel , can be highlighted some more , Coz they pop and make the look outstanding ( check lake bridal eye makeup on Karen a kapoor)
    what i would really like to add is a hint of good glitter on ur eyes and cheekbones and chin with a little sprinkle in ur hair .
    so u shine like a princess bride.

    this is my take and I’m being brutally honest in a positive way and i also love u jus the way u are in the pic as well

    and remember I’m a dud at make up. My make up is a lip balm, and sunscreen and i hand myself to the whims of those celebrity professionals when am a bridesmaid at that odd wedding.

    do what makes u happy , gives u the confidence to shine , to reach for the stars.
    u, Ll be a superstar princess shinning thru and thru.

  59. Mia says:

    That’s lakme bridal eye make up om Kareena kapoor. U can Google the ads . Smokey eyes rock and u have beautiful eyes to carry them off.
    Hope there aren’t more typos?
