I've never known if I've been picking the right colors for my skin/eyes/hair so I really wanted someone to tell me what would look best on me. To top it all of she gave me a VERY detailed step by step instruction guide for how to put it on.

Here are pictures: (little more shiny than right after, but we ran some errands and it's 112 here, so ....)

I would go to the LM counter. I personally didn't have a great experience at Sephora. The girl wanted me to pick my eyeshadow, blush, etc. I was like "um no, I don't know what colors look best" She didn't seem to know either.

The girl at LM, was incredible. Even drew out what to use in which order, where to apply, which brushes to use, etc. And she told me why she was doing what she was doing, what teqniques to use for each product. I had a great experience there.

Steph - your makeup looks great! I need something for shiny skin! I swear, when I look in the mirror, my skin doesn't look shiny, but in photographs - I always have this huge shine on my forehead!

 

I was going to go to the Mac Counter and have my makeup done. Since I have a darker complexion, I feel like I should wear a little more makeup to show up on photos.

 

Right now I use tinted moisturizer from Proactiv. It has sunscreen in it so maybe that's why I always feel like my makeup doesn't stay. I need some serious make up help before the wedding!

I agree, I would go to the LM counter. Like Tara said the lady there was very helpful and wrote everything out. She even would do one eye and let me do the other so I could get the technique down with her watching me. Maybe you could go to Sephora for re-fills on the make up. I dont know how their prices compare.

 

Thanks Celina! Their foundation is great! and I got the Bronze gel too to add to the foundation for the summer when I am a tan.

I really like that you can add Bronzer to your foundation. I know i'll need that for Punta Cana.

 

I talked to fsil, we are going to go to LM and check it out. They have an LM counter at the Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom about 40 minutes from us. We'll have to make a day out of it.

Tara, your make-up looks great! Did you buy any of it?

 

I used the bronzer for the wedding and I really liked it. Someday I will post my review with pictures.....I have only been married for like 3 weeks and I have been promising my review 2 days after we got back. I am such a slacker!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
