My Civil Ceremony Hair & Makeup | Vegan & Cruelty-Free

I am finally sharing my civil ceremony hair and makeup tutorial! In case you missed it, Jesse and I got legally hitched on November 7,2020. After postponing our wedding a full year, and not even knowing if that new date would happen, we decided to make 2020 our year. We headed to the courthouse, (more on that in another post) and made it official.

I opted to do my own hair and makeup for the event, and I know this is something a lot of brides prefer to do — whether that be to save money, or just to ensure that you get the look that you want, so I figured I’d make a full tutorial. I’m sharing the things I liked about each product, along with the products I didn’t like (because believe me, I realized after about one minute I had a makeup regret.)

I’m very passionate about only using cruelty-free and vegan products so all of the products used are just that! Even if you’re not getting married soon, I LOVE this look for any event you have coming up. Let me know if you try it, and let me know if you did or are planning to do your own hair and makeup for your civil ceremony or wedding!

Also, stay tuned for a full re-cap of the day. It was magical, and perfectly imperfect and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I always thought I wanted to elope vs. have a big wedding, and now that I’m doing both I realize eloping has SO many perks.
