Four years ago I married my best friend!

I am lucky enough to say that yesterday was my four year wedding anniversary.  I married a great man and we really have something so special together.  So in honor of that, I'm going to show you just a couple pictures of us from our wedding.

haha like his hat?  I gave it to him to wear to the reception.  He never went anywhere without a hat so I figured since I was marrying him for who he was, he should wear a hat at our reception.
And here we are today

I could not decide what kind of makeup to do for my anniversary!  Do I do something simple?  Do I do something sexy?  Do I do something like what I did on our wedding day (which who knows what that was haha).  So I grabbed the list of suggestions from my beautiful followers (yes, I have them all written down on a list in my bathroom) and looked it over.  I didn't want to do anything too crazy and then I saw Lindsey0901's suggestion of flowers.  I think flowers are a great inspiration, there's so many beautiful color combos in flowers and so, what better to do on my anniversary than a flower I had in my bouquet.  What flower is this you ask?  Why, it's a blue hydrangea.  I love them.  They make me happy.  

Aren't they gorgeous?  I just think they 're so pretty!  I had blue hydrangeas but they come in purple, white, green, and pink.  And even within the blues, there are a ton of color variations.  Some are more purple, some are more green, some have a lot of white, some have none.  So here is what I came up with based these beautiful flowers.

 I know I could have taken this more extreme but I wanted it to be a little softer.  When I saw my hubby, I told him to guess what my makeup was based on and I gave him the hint "it has something to do with our wedding" and he got it right away.
The colors I used are:
Inglot 388 (matte blue/purple), 351 (matte light off white color) and 395 (highlight and on top of 351).  I also used a baby blue and navy color from my 88 palette.

So that was my anniversary look!   My father-in-law just bought a house so while he and my hubby are moving boxes, I'm going to go clean his carpets.  So this shall be a fun filled day haha.  I hope you guys have a great day and I thank you so much for your support!
