I honestly don't know what I'll be doing for my wedding make up, but I definitely want it to be more of a natural glowy look.

Any-who, make up primer can be a really great tool! I've used a few different ones, and overall they create a smooth(er) surface for makeup application & keeps your makeup looking fresher longer. It's also a nice alternative if you don't like to use foundation - just smooth on the primer & dust with a little powder. I think it would be a good product for Cabo brides - especially summer brides. The heat could definitely melt your face off!

My favorite that I've tried is ColorScience Line Tamer. It has all kinds of botanical stuff in it and it's really calming for my sometimes irritates skin.

I use Smashbox photo finish product whenever I have to get really made up and it works. I don't know if it classifies as a primer, but it fills in and areas of your skin that need it so that foundation looks smooth. You can also use it alone as a mattifier.

I've heard the Smashbox primer is awesome. Haven't used it myself though. I'd recommend going to Sephora for samples, if you live near one.

Janet- You read my mind. I did go to Sephora and they recommend Smashbox and Nars. I use Nars makeup now and really like it. I am going to buy both and see how it goes.

I use the Smashbox Photo Finish stuff. I've never heard of a primer before. I'm not a very good make up person, but I love the stuff for going out. I have sensitive skin and it works beautifully for me without irritating my skin.

Laura Mercier also has AMAZING primer!!! I use it almost every day and it is very light but keeps my makeup on and pretty fresh all day. They sell this at Sephora too.

Well Kash, you and I must be the non- makeup wearing girls of the group. I was wondering the same thing!

Have you ever painted a wall before? Think of it as a base coat you would put down before painting a wall. Or like when you get a pedicure, they put down a primer/base coat before the nail color. It just kinda smoothes everything out & allows your make up to go on easier & stay on longer. For those that have large pores (like me), it's great because it keeps my face from literally eating my makeup.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
