Ethnic Brides...How 'Bout Makeup??

Recommended Posts

My sis and aunt swear by bare essentials, but they don't have my color. And the one color that is closest to my complexion is too light for my forehead.

 

If you buy some translucent powder and dust it over your foundation it will set and won't rub off on your hands or clothes. But if you do get it on your clothes, Shout wipes get it right off, its like magic!

I'm going to do my MAC trial today so that I have something to compare it to.
Good luck!

Girls, as scary as I think I look, I'm afraid to post the pics! I have the pics from the bare escentuals fiasco, but didn't go to Mac yet. I'm doing that today. I think the bare escentuals pics came out scary cuz I took them myself, in the bathroom mirror!

So this is what I'll do...After I go to Mac, I will come back & post pics from both experiences & then you guys can see the results!! SIGH...I hate that you guys LOVE PHOTOS!!! LOL..

I'm using MAC for my wedding day makeup. I don't use foundation, so I have no suggestions. Here's a pic of my makeup trial and I've learned to recreate the look for my big day.

The other reason why I have stuck with Perscriptives is the way they decide your color. they do this color test on your skin to determine your undertone (something like that) to pick which color is best for you. Some stores also do custom blend and make foundation just for you!
I think Prescriptives is supposed to be really good for your skin. If you have a P-counter near you I think it's definitely worth checking out.

What time are you getting married? If it's high noon that could be very different from sunset as far as how your face will react to the heat...

The step-by-step instructions would be cool just for own personal knowledge smile159.gif but I know you have plenty of stuff to do for your wedding. But can you tell me what kind of eyeshadow to get? I really like that yours looks so smooth and not glittery.

THANKS! That sounds easy enough smile41.gif I'm gonna go to the MAC counter tomorrow with one of my BMs and figure out which colors I need. I'll post a pic when I get home. It sounds/looks like the secret is in blending the colors and using a good base.

I use Bare Escentuals now, and I do really like it. When I first put it on, the color seemed a bit off...but as it sets, about 10 minutes later it looks really natural. I especially love that it looks natural in any light. Even outdoors! Its probably what I'll wear for the wedding, but I always want to be sure I'm using the best for whatever the situation!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
