    ditto...love, Laura Mercier!

      I love Laura Mercier. She has a great oil-free tinted moisturizer that I wear daily. For color, Nars products have good pigments. I use their bronzer, blush, eyeshadow, and lip gloss.

      Try going to a counter or Sephora on a weekday to avoid a huge crowd and you'll get more time w/ the makeup artist. Have fun! :)

        I have used both CLinique Superfit and Mac Studio Fix compact. I like the coverage of Superfit, but I have very oily skin and it just adds to it. I love the Mac Studio Fix compact, it is the first thing ever that I have come across that really controls the shine. However, I plan to splurge on Laura Mercier for the wedding, b/c of all the great reviews. There is a whole thread about it somewhere. Good Luck!

          I used to wear prescriptives foundation, it's very light. But could still feel it, kwim?

          I just had my makeup done at the Laura Mercier counter and I Love love it. It's like i dont even have foundation on. I use a foundation primer and put tinted moisturizer on over it. I would highly reccomend it. I think there's a thread on here for the brand line, thats what made me pick LM.

            I'm a complete Mary Kay girl...I have Mary Kay EVERYTHING!! You can go to the website & search for a consultant in your area. They will come to your home (or you can go to a class they are having) and "do you up"!! They will let you test the cleanser, moisturizer, foundation & sample their makeup!

                  LOVE laura mercier. I'm a no foundation EVER girl, but I wore their primer and oil free foundation at my wedding (in August in Mexico) and it was PERFECT.

                  Get an appointment at Nordstrom, Bloomies or a big Macy's and get your face done. You don't have to buy anything, although that is the goal of the artists. And just wear it around for a day and see what you think.

                  Happily married since 2008

                    Well, I don't know too much about foundations, but I can say that I love Lancome mascara! Any of their mascaras are fab, they're expensive but well worth it in my opinion. I have heard good things about MAC products, my older sister swears by them.

                    Good thread, I'm going to go make up hunting soon too, so this helps! :)
