Lauren Conrad's Wedding Makeup, Hair, Nails (Using Drugstore Products!)

Hey you! How was your weekend? Mine was spent getting caught up with everything I put off because of my vacation. I think I'm still behind. ;) I also put together this tutorial for you--some of my most popular posts are my LC tutorials, so it only felt right to include this one!

When Lauren Conrad announced her engagement, I couldn't wait for the wedding makeup, hair, and nail details as I've long admired her classic style. Luckily, all was shared in US Weekly. I knew I had to recreate it and challenged myself to use only drugstore products. Here's my interpretation (feel free to use your faves):

Elle Sees version of LC's look
 1--Lauren's makeup artist Amy Nadine used Kanebo by Sensai Foundation and Armani powder, giving a semi-matte effect. For my version, I used the Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid Touch Foundation

2--I love how classic and low-key Lauren's makeup was. She kept her makeup and hair close to how she normally wears it, including her famous cat eye. While she used Mark's Get in Line liner (no longer available, but the waterproof What a Line is) I chose Jessie Girl's Waterproof Eyeliner. Be sure to gently pull the lid (pictured below) and draw the line using short strokes. I made mine a little thicker to match hers.

3--Lauren wore Maybelline Full 'N Soft mascara, which I didn't have, so I used Maybelline Big Eyes mascara instead. I'm guessing she used falsies, but I skipped them!


4--Make Up Forever HD Blush in Peachy Pink was used and I chose Jordana blush in Coral Radiance. This $2.49 blush is found online but not as easily in stores (I found mine at Kmart) so use any peachy pink blush. I also like Flower Beauty (Walmart), ELF, or Sonia Kashuk (Target) blushes.

5--Kanebo by Sensai liner in Sakura and Dior Addict Lip Polish adorned LC's lips. I didn't use liner but applied NYX Butter Gloss in Apple Strudel. I also tried this look with Nude Peach.

6--Hairstylist Kristin Ess curled Lauren's extensions using a 1 1/4 curling iron. I admit I cheated here because my 1 1/4 curling iron is a Hot Tools Marcel iron (not drugstore, but I got it at ULTA), but I was easily able to find a $13 version from Conair. Just use the barrel only, pointing the barrel down and wrapping 1 in section of hair around it, away from the face (see pic below). Hold for about 15 seconds (or until hair is hot). Release, allow to cool, and gently separate with fingers. Use your fave hairspray to set. I didn't have a 10 foot veil and headpiece handy, so I used a jeweled headband from ULTA. [edit: here's a video and post of this method using a smaller barrel]

7--I couldn't find any info on her specific nail color, but in pictures her nails looked nude. This nude polish from ELF is only $2!
