Its not exactly what I'm going for, but I figured out what products I needed and one of my BMs was with me, taking notes so she can replicate it in Jamaica, and she surprised me by buying all the products that the MAC girl used! elefant.gif
I love it!

I use their Studio Fix Foundation. But sometimes I use this Estee Lauder powder that I use a blush brush to go over my T-Zone afterwards. I like it because it looks like I have blush on but it evens everything out without waiting a couple minutes for the makeup to tone down. I also think my face gets shiny cause I always have the heat on in my office when I'm at work.

I'm with you there. I am just lazy. Today I have no makeup on whatsoever. Normally I wear mascara and lip gloss. My face gets shiny and I always worry that makeup will smear since i touch my face without thinking, so I just don't waer it. i am planning to take lessons at mac for the big day so i can do it myself.

BTW- twelve piece : the makeup looks great! I think the look is perfect and natural :)

I'm with you Nikki, I don't wear makeup everyday either, but want a natural look. I have problems with blotchy, oily skin, and very short lashes. I need some help in the application of eyeshadows and how to plump up the lashes without having to resort to wearing fake lashes. I AM TOTALLY LOST IN THAT ARENA!!!

 

You ladies look great in your make overs! I'm sold, I will also make a trip to the MAC counter for a makeover. I also did some research and found that there is a MAC counter in Cancun. I need to see how close they are to the hotel prior to our ceremony because I don't trust the people at the hotel spa.

 

Thanks for sharing and for the excellent tips!! Dee

Makeup is as simple as you want it ladies. And like anything, Practice Makes Perfect. I am a tomboy of all tomboys, but I love artsy stuff...and I started looking at applying makup as an art... The key is blending...you want everything to blend smoothly. I do this with my finger... If you have any questions I can try and answer them... I posted up some pics of makeup that I have done on myself, but if you want me to do a step by step, I can post that also...?

I definitely understand you on that note. I only wear mascara and chapstick or lipgloss. I have no idea what I am going to do for the big day. From what I heard I would definitely like to go with the mineral powder thing. So I guess I better start looking for the bare essentials and see if that works!!

    • 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
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
