Aww thanks so much! :) I was so stressed about doing my own wedding makeup since 90% of the time I don't even wear any and I'm not particularly experienced with doing a nice job of lining my eyes....I'm so glad you and other bdw gals here thought it looked good. I guess I'm more skilled with makeup thank I thought hehe.

P.S. Sorry for the derail!

Several others have mentioned my concern above. I used to use Bare Minerals and I don't think they photograph well. Each time I have worn them and have been photographed I have a whitish hue in the pictures. If you want to use them I would do a test run and photograph yourself. I liked them for a while but I felt my skin got 'used' to them and they stopped looking at good.

Great advice, everyone!


I am excited to try this stuff out over the weekend, and I think I will wear it when we go to get our Engagement photos done so I can see for sure how it will photograph! As you can see, I have VERY fair skin (which I am hoping to have a bit more tan by the wedding), so I definitely don't need something with a white hue to make me look even lighter!


And Kathy -- I agree with Dreamy101...you looked so gorgeous! Great job!

i love bare minerals (and will do my own makeup for the wedding using them), but i'm also not one to wear a lot of face makeup/foundation. the coverage is pretty good, but sometimes my dark undereye circles require a little more, LOL.


i do need to buy some mineral eye shadows now tho! all i own is the starter.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
