It's wedding season and I'm suffering from wedding fever!

I love weddings. The flowers, the dress, the food, the music-- I love watching it all come together. When you're in the middle of planning one, though, that is one joy that does not seem to cometh in the morning.

You have so much to think about that your makeup is often the last thing on your mind. It may also be the lowest priority in your budget.

For my DIY brides who want to do their own beauty for the big day, I decided to do a bridal makeup tutorial that I think will suit a variety of skin tones. The warm gold, red and brown tones will also fit any season, no matter when your wedding is. I think you're really going to love this. It's definitely an option to take one thing off your (likely overloaded) wedding plate.

I used a lot of inexpensive eye shadows from Coastal Scents. If you have hung around here long enough, you know that I love them for their price and their pigmentation. Each of the shadows listed below can be purchased for a whopping $2.

Yeah, you read right... $2.00. That's $10 worth of eye shadow colors. The colors I used are so neutral, they could easily be worked into your daily routine. That way you won't feel like you spent a ton on something you only needed for a special occasion.

The only mildly expensive things on the product list are the setting powders I used under my eyes and my Skindinavia setting spray, but that was honestly me just using what I had on hand.

If you choose to use a drugstore yellow powder, such as the yellow side of the Wet n Wild Contour palette, I suggest you set your concealer using setting spray on a sponge first then press your powder over the area. This will keep creasing to a minimum.

If you are getting married soon, good luck and happy wedding day! I hope you enjoy this look as much as I did creating it!
