    Thanks!


    I am a fan of MAC because they offer both liquid and powder foundations that last. The have one that lasts for 8 hours and another that last for 16 hours.  They also have an oil control moisturizer that really reduces shine and the ladies at the counter are always there to help.  I stopped by the MAC counter at Macy's and there was a women who was doing a makeup trial for her wedding and another women who was there for a training session on a smokey eye with fake eyelashes.   I am also planning on doing a wedding day trial so I can purchase all of the makeup I will need for Jamaica.  Hope this helps!

      I have settled on a hair style for my wedding. I'm into this look with red lipstick and a real seĀ±orita flair! Just need a nice veil to top it off!Hair, Long

        Thanks for the info kenwedjam!!  I never used MAK and will try to make an appointment soon.  I just don't want that ashy look on my face with the wrong powder foundation.  I have used clinique, which has pretty good foundation that matches my skin tone completely.  No complaints, but would try MAK.

              Here is my hair inspiration. I am natural and have curly hair. My hair will be blown out and curled. I figure if humidity gets to it with this style it wont look too bad.

                I am thinking about having a sew in with some of my hair out around the edges.

                    I am wearing my hair the same way.  I saw a video of the clip-ons that someone else posted in this thread.  I think you could make it work.

I know I'm a wierdo.  I need to add length and volume, I'm leaning towards clip-ins but do they have those for black hair?

                      Missgomes,

                      I am the same way.  I love scratching my hair, which is something that can't really be done with a complete sew in.  But my hair lady usually does a sew in with some hair out in between tracks.  This is usually how I have my hair done.  I was just thinking about having the whole head sewed in because I wanted to swim and not worry about my hair.  Im unsure if they have clip ins for our hair.  I don't even know if its good for the hair also.
