The (Beauty) Wedding Countdown

Are you tying *the knot* this summer or fall? One of my closest friends, Jacqueline, is getting married tomorrow and while I'm obviously delighted, I'm also so curious about what's involved when it comes to nailing down the final details. Frankly put, I'm less concerned about what time dinner starts and more interested in what nail polish she's planning on wearing.

Heck, the girl's so laid back she's even doing her own makeup (and no, she didn't copy Kate Middleton) for the big day. There's no spray tan,  glycolic peel, laser hair removal session, last-minute cut and colour or even a facial stamped on her dance card. She's simply booking a mani/pedi today, and having her hair done the morning of the wedding.

She's slipping her teeny toes into a pair of Manolo Blahniks and a soft (but not predictably bridal-y ballet) pink, with the most adorable name ( BFF Best Boy Friend by Essie).

As for her makeup, she's going classic (think Grace Kelly) by highlighting her brows, accentuating her cheeks and using a rosy gloss with a hint of gold on her lips. She's using Guerlain Kiss Kiss in Rose Florida. There's a photo of how gorgeous the shade is over at Temptalia.

And the rest is a tight-lipped secret.
