    i'm really happy with the way it turned out and FH says that i looked "stunning" when i came home...he couldn't stop commenting on how good i looked (although i don't usually wear makeup so this was pretty different for me)

    but the only decent pic i have is this one...

    you can't see the shimmer or anything and i look like i have a mustache lol
    oh and she really really filled in my eyebrows so i'm gonna have to change that for the wedding too....i don't like bushy looking eyebrows!

    and my hair was totally sucking today lol

      Looks great! I never wear make up either, so am afraid of looking like a clown... but that looks lovely on you!

      So, are you going to have the random beautician at the resort do it for you on the day?

        Nope I'm having my sister do it for me :) She's amazing at makeup and the esthetician who did my makeup today showed my sister how she did it and all the colours she used. So we're going to have a few practice runs before Mexico and all should be good :)

                  Ladies, I am certain your photographer will tell you this, but be sure if you are wearing a base makeup that it is camera friendly. Some foundations can make your skin look very white in photos. I learned the hard way.
                  And don't be afraid to wear a little color. Brides love to look as pure as the driven snow, but you want to have a healthy glow in those pictures.
                  And, those eyebrows looked fantastic.
                  I have spent about 9 years as a makeup artist w/Estee Lauder and have done plenty of brides...a little blush or bronzer, a lip liner and some gloss, some shadow and mascara, AND a little brow grooming is all that you need.
                  Here's to the beautiful brides!
                  For the dance, at the reception, Maggie wore her crinoline and a lovely lace top. Looks like Tadd likes it!

                    My skin actually didn't look that white, I think it was the lighting in the salon, not so great!
                    I used a tinted moisturizer as my base and it was actually quite a bit darker than my actual skin tone because I'm so pale (and I'm tanning before the wedding), and a bit of bronzer on my cheeks. The picture doesn't really do the makeup justice
