Holy Wedding Season. Wedding Season is in full swing and my lovely friend Meagan was invited to a wedding and wanted to get herself some Girl Get Glamorous hair and makeup. I was in!
Meagan and I met and became friends doing stand up together. Not only is she very funny and very pretty and a very good friend to me, but her hair also holds a curl from a hot roller like nobody’s business. Meagan is my living doll, folks. She’s my doll!
We discussed a Brigitte Bardot inspired look and I promptly plugged in my hot rollers. That’s right. We were about to hot roller the heck out of that hair. Dreams do come true.
I blew her hair dry using Living Proof Full styling cream. Then after it was dry, I sprayed Suave Keratin infusion dry shampoo throughout, to give it extra grip and volume. At the crown, where I really wanted the volume to be huge, I added a bit of Bumble and Bumble Pret-A-Powder to give crazy texture and hold. True happiness is big hair.
I scrunched all the powders into her hair and got those hot rollers ready. I hit her roots one more time with the hair dryer, just to really make sure the dry shampoos absorbed before putting in the rollers. Then it was Hot Roller Heaven! I got Meagan’s hair all curled up in the rollers, then let them sit while we started makeup.
For skin, I used Chanel Lumiere foundation in shade 20, Clair. It’s a long lasting matte foundation that doesn’t look flat on the skin. Matte felt right with the look, but I still wanted Meagan’s skin to look fresh and last all night.
A cat eye feels essential to the Bardot look, but I wanted to add a little color punch to it. Sometimes a cat eye feels too “daytime” and this wedding was at night. I decided to do a contoured beige and brown eyeshadow look with the cat eye, and big lashes! I lined the inside of her eyes with L’Oreal Silkissime eyeliner in Black and Highlighter at the inner corners. For the precise cat eye, I used the Lorac Front of The Line eyeliner, which has an ultra fine tip. Perfect for neat-looking cat eyes.
For cheeks we went with a soft peach, I used Too Faced Sweethearts blush in “Peach Beach” (full review HERE). I have used this blush on so many different people and it looks so flawless on everyone. It’s one of my favorite, favorite blushes. I contoured with my It Cosmetics “My Sculpted Face” palette, using the lightest contouring shade.
The lips were also LUXE. We used some fancy makeup! I used my Tom Ford lipstick in Abandon, a perfect soft peach. I probably should be greedier with this lipstick, because it’s one of the fanciest things I own, but I knew the peach would be perfect with Meagan’s skin.
With the makeup finished, it was time to take the hot rollers out and they did not disappoint! I teased the crown so it would stay up all night and finished with Elnett hairspray and a drop of oil for shine. I loved the finished look, it feels very Brigitte Bardot meets Michelle Pfeiffer!
