Getting married and stumped about what to give your girls on your big day? I was recently a bridesmaid for one of my best friends Brittany, and she totally knocked our bridesmaid gifts out of the park!
To keep things simple but also to help us save, part of Brittany’s gift was to pay for our makeup on the big day. This was such a treat for me – I’ve only ever gotten mine done once before and I loved how glamorous I looked – the makeup lasted from 8am all the way through to the next morning! #lazy #sleptinfakeeyelashes
She gave us these little bags the morning of her wedding as we began to get ready, and they each contained a duo of lip glosses from Tarte – the attached card read “Your makeup is on me, but here’s for a touchup!” (lip colors are WCW and Namaste)
The colors are absolutely beautiful on their own, but we chose to layer the lighter shade on first and then add a small amount of the glossy darker shade on top. I hardly ever wear lip gloss but it really pulled the entire look together and I loved how the colors looked on my (slightly tanner) skintone ; )
We also received these gorgeous coverups to wear while we got ready and I’m really excited that I’ll get to wear it again once summer rolls back around. (no lip gloss yet in this picture) All in all, it was the perfect bridesmaid gift – it saved us money and we got to look beautiful on Brittany’s big day!
