Lizzy is right, about some make up products, like Mac makeup works fine with professional photography equipment, but take a snapshot and you will look like the dead, I have no idea why.
Try your makeup and take a digital snapshot in low lighting see if that makes you look pale, if not then your make will be fine.

Melissa I love the eye makeup.

    I know I am being stubborn about this but I refuse, refuse to have makeup caked on the day of my wedding. I know it looks good for pics and all but I need to feel like me. I got my makeup done at Shiseido when I went to my high school prom and I hated it. I mean the woman did a nice job it wasn't the makeup artist's fault, it's just that I had so much foundation and looked scary white. Eeew I hate foundation (no offense to people who wear foundation, just my personal preference). And Christine I agree MAC can look weird. When I go to MAC the salespeople always look like it's halloween, they have so much makeup caked on. It looks like they have 35 layers of blue eyeshadow on. It's just too much for my personal taste. But Melissa the makeup looks perfect on you. Very pretty!

      thanks glenda! i agree - i hate having makeup caked on!
      aveda makeup is nice and light, i really like it - it feels really natural!
      and i'm with you on the foundation - i absolutely despise the stuff...but instead of foundation she put on a tinted moisturizer which was really nice :)

        I love tinted moisturizer. I use the Benefits line which I love and I wear their tinted moisturizer. Aveda is great!

          Melissa you look great! Oh crap I was going to Mac to have my makeup done. Is it just their foundation that does not photograph well. I dont wear a lot of makeup either, so I will have to make sure they dont make me look silly! I dont wear foundation, just a bronzer, so maybe I will be okay if I just stress that I want to look natural and beachy!!

            I am just being honest if you are looking for a natural beachy look I would not go with MAC. Not that you can't obtain that look with their products b/c you can. They actually have great products and are good quality. (They are very expensive by the way, very expensive) However, their makeup is more like costume makeup. Picture 16 year old girls in dance recitals with blue eyeshadow, lots of foundation and blush, and lipstick. I think as long as you stress what you want they should be able to help you. They have beautiful pinks that go well with what you are trying to achieve, but I am warning you that they tend to go overboard and just do whatever they want anyway. If you don't wear a lot of makeup it might be too much for you. Not in a bad way, just that it can be overwhelming if your not used to a lot of makeup.

              Thanks Glenda. I apprechiate your honest opinion. Do you know where I should go? I pretty much will just be buying the eyemake up and maybe a blush. I have tons of lip glosses and dont need mascara. What do you think would be the most reasonable place to get a trial done?
              Thanks

                Well I don't want to discourage you from going to MAC. If you want to try it you def should. You never know they may have something you love. But I think Clinique or Estee Lauder has more reasonable makeup tips. It all depends on your style. I don't really wear makeup so I am not an expert on makeup I am just familiar with different styles. I only wear bronzer, mascara and lip gloss when I have special occasions. I don't do the whole black eyeliner and eyeshadow thing so I'm not the best judge of makeup. I use chanel and christian dior lip glosses and the benefits line tinted moisturizer and bronzer. I think you should try whatever you like and see which one works best for you.

                Melissa the make up looks beautiful it really emphasizes your eyes. Those eyes are a gorgeous color and that shadow really pops them out. Blush and lips look good too.

                Good work - you're lucky you have a sister that's good at that stuff.
