LOTD: Hair and makeup to a Wedding

It's wedding season! 
Several of my friends are getting married, some already have. I guess summer is a great season to get married because you can throw a beautiful reception out in the garden or in the beach. But of course, if you have a beach wedding to attend to, you can't have your favorite heels to complete your outfit. 
Anyway, I just want to show you a very neutral look to a wedding.
I have a coral dress on, some peach blush and bronze for eye makeup. I should put more shadows on my lids because you can't really see it in the picture, can you? The basic idea is not to go over the top when it comes to the wedding. You don't want to steal the thunder from the bride (and the groom of course since it's their day, not only 'her' day even though many think so and many brides feel so). 
This look is perfect for people who are just trying out makeup or don't like a lot of makeup on their face but want to add a little bit of glam.

This updo is really easy to get. Just watch Daven Mayeda's video, and you can recreate it yourself. I can't have the wavy side bangs like the model in the video because my hair is too long and my bang is too short for that. So, I tucked in a chunk of fair to the bun with a bobby pin and voila. I must say highlights would give this updo a little more dimension and definition, but this works too. 

 And for my nails, I think sparkly nails can add a little pop in this simple look.
