haodoyoungo x lover.ly Makeup Inspiration #1 // The Chloe Dress

I was recently going through the Lover.ly website and was inspired by some of their dresses! If you didn't know (like me), Lover.ly is like a one stop shop for those interested in weddings. They have galleries of dresses for the bride that you can view here as well as bridesmaids dresses and wedding themes. There's also information for pricing and who you can call for wedding help. It feels like a Pinterest for weddings for me!

The Chloe Dress from The Temperley London immediately popped out to me when I was viewing their gallery and I fell in love. 

You can read more information about the dress here. I usually think of long trained and strapless dresses for wedding dresses and so I was a bit surprised that I was so drawn to it. The draping is so beautiful and I love the details to it. I could see myself wearing this on wedding day and it makes me so excited!

I didn't choose any crazy products to be paired up with this dress and it might even seem a bit boring, but I don't want something that's going to overwhelm the look of the dress. Because the dress made me so excited for my own day, the products and the look are stuff are based on my own more glam-ed up look.

A neutral eye would be really nice to give the eyes definition, but a winged liner is going to make the eyes stand out. I prefer pen style eyeliners right now because they make the most precise lines for me. For the liner, I have three suggestions for three different price ranges. 

The one in the above picture is the Marc Jacobs Beauty Magic Marc'er Precision Pen Waterproof Eyeliner in Blacquer ($30).  I personally don't have this liner, but my roommate does. I see her struggle to take it off every night because it is so waterproof. She's also not as obsessed with beauty with me, but she said it was really easy to use this liner. This eyeliner will stay strong throughout the wedding tears and still look beautiful.

The Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Black ($20) is a mid-range liner that I always highly recommend. It's one of my personal favorites and I have repurchased it many times. The L'oreal Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner (~$9) is more budget friendly and is also great. My sister uses this and she has very oily lids. It stays on all day and she can make the lines as thin or thick as she wants. 

For the cheeks, a rosy neutral blush like Benefit Cosmetic's Blush in Rockateur ($28) would be perfect. It's a great color that has a slight glow that looks very natural and beautiful both in pictures and real life. It's not shimmery and so it won't look too shiny or oily throughout the day. 

The lipstick has got to be a brick red to complete the modern classic look I'm thinking of. One of my favorite reds that anyone could wear is MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam I ($16). It has a slight blue base too which makes the teeth look more white. The matte finish keeps the lipstick more long lasting compared to other finishes to make it through the wedding. A more affordable dupe that is just as great is NYX Cosmetics Round Case Lipstick in Snow White (~$4). It has a satin finish that feels more creamy, but I found that it was just as long lasting as a matte lipstick.

  1. This is such a cool concept for a post! My sister is getting married in June and I can't wait to make some bridal posts. I've been watching every bridal video by Lisa Eldridge, Pixiwoo, etc. I keep hearing about Benefit Rockateur lately and it sounds like it's becoming a cult favorite. Maybe I need to check this out for myself :) Nice work Hao! xo
