    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...

If you really want, I will go through and take pictures step by step of how I put on my makeup Let me know...you know I am a makeup fanatic and love to help.
                  The step-by-step instructions would be cool just for own personal knowledge 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 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!
