“She warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within.” - Beauty and the Beast
Wedding season is in full bloom and this year is extra special to me as the big day has finally come, and my best friend of 10 years is finally married. From the proposal, bachelorette party, bridal shower and finally the wedding, it has been a long time coming with lots of planning and preparations (check the insta for pictures of all). Nevertheless, being a Maid of Honor was the best job I could have ever asked for, was so much fun and so rewarding. Thankfully not only the bride was able to get her squad, but also I was so lucky to have had all of my girls (bridesmaids) with me to get me through it all. Honestly, I don't know what I would of do without them.
As Maid of Honor, I was able to wear many hats. I was an event coordinator, designer, stylist, florist, photographer; you name it. But my ultimate favorite was being her makeup artist for the special day. When Victoria (best friend) asked me to do her makeup on her special day, I had to say "YES" right away, as it took us back to our high school memories but at least this time I have a bit more of experience. We did about three different look trials for the big day from deep colors to light, elegant ones, which ultimately we ended up with the perfect one for her and her "Beauty and the Beast" wedding theme. She did not only looked gorgeous, but she made her vision a reality. She became the princess she always dreamed of, and she had the best squad to accompany her on her special day.
As for the bridesmaids, our dresses were red wine, all different to show our personalities. But yet we wanted also to represent the Rose, which is all about life and love and for our best friend special day, we wanted to portray that in any possible way. So today on the blog if your wedding colors are red wine and gold, or if you are a Disney fanatic just like us and you want a Beauty and the Beast theme, I am going to show you the perfect bridesmaid makeup tutorial for YOUR very own squad.

SHOP THE LOOK:
Luckily, I was so fortunate to have been asked to try some of The Beauty Crop products a few weeks before the wedding. Their products are not only cute, but the company is simply amazing. As seen on Bustle, Popsugar, Urban Outfitters, Birchbox, Allure and more, The Beauty Crop are committed to creating products that are 100% cruelty-free cosmetics with no nasty additives. Paraben free, vegan-friendly, even gluten-free. Seriously such a fantastic brand.
But back to me trying The Beauty Crop, due to travel I was able to try them ON the day of the wedding. I know what you are probably thinking, "How can you risk trying new products on a time constraint event... like a WEDDING!" or "WAIT!... you used this on the Bride?!" (which I did). But let me tell you if you love warm tones, or you are like me and have straight eyelashes, or just love matte lipsticks, and you want them to last all day with the knowledge that no one suffered in the making. You need to make The Beauty Crop part of your makeup routine.
Here is a quick review of all the products they sent me:
DELUXE MINI GIRL GANG SET - LIQUID LIPSTICK SET - $24.50
With four different shades, this cute set is all you need for any occasion. Perfect for fall looks and lattes sips and lots of margaritas during the summer. These babies will last you forever without drying your lips.
GLOW MILK LIQUID HIGHLIGHTER - $19.50
If you are obsessed with highlighters, and you need some extra glow this summer. This vanilla scented highlighter will make your skin radiate against the sun, giving you fairy vibes all day long.
FABULOUS FLOCKING LASHES MASCARA - $19.90
Do you tend to have straight/waterfall eyelashes, and you can’t seem to find anything that will keep them curled and long all day? Stop searching, because I have found your match. Nourished with Argan Oil & Jojoba.
WING WOMAN LIQUID EYELINER - $17.50
If I would to compare this eyeliner to others, I would choose the Kat Von D tattoo eyeliner. Both of them last all day even in the hottest days and the precision of the pen is so amazing that it will help you achieve the best cat eye.
ESPRESSO YOURSELF EYESHADOW PALETTE - $29.90
Need a palette that can help you achieve a natural look as well as a night out look all in the same palette? This baby got you, and not only that, but it will also help you shine all day/night long with their super pigmented shiny eyeshadow. I am so in love with them.
Overall, I couldn’t have been able to create this incredible look if it wasn’t because of The Beauty Crop. My girls loved their makeup, and they looked fantastic on Victoria's big day.
