    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.
