And will concealer get rid of bags under your eyes? I almost always have them. Thanks for your help girls.
Best foundation etc for photos

LINK! You can use the magnifying icon at the bottom to make it a little bigger.
I get fills every three weeks, usually during my lunch hour. They are truly extensions of your existing lashes. Your natural lashes only last a little more than a month so the extensions fall off with your natural lashes cycle, thus the reason for the fills. They use a surgical glue to apply them to each individual lash. They have assorted lengths in pre-curled to straight lashes. If you are going to try it, I would recommend you start a couple months before the wedding so you can get a couple fills and figure out what you like. I went with a little longer for the wedding.
p.s. At first, I tried a place that didn't specialize in lashes (it was where I get my nails done). They put some pre-woven clusters of lashes on my eyes and used a very toxic glue. They were horrible.
I changed to someone that used the high quality surgical glue and the individual lashes and they are outstanding. They really made the 11 days in Mexico easier for me and my life easier since I have got back. I don't know if I will ever stop wearing them.

I will definitely recommend mac foundation. After many years of working as a photographer and make-up artist and trying hundreds of different ones - MAC is number 1. Good applied will stay on your face for whole day.
It feels heavy but doesn't looks like this. You also mix it with your moisturizer for every day use and lighter coverage.
Important things - apply foundation with the brush and then set with face spray. (body shop - face mist with vitamin E works perfectly and is very nice for everyday use in summer). Blotting papers works great as you will sweat. Don't put to much dry powder on, just foundation and a little bit of bronzer works great for destination weddings.

Both of these types of foundations have reflective properties which will make your face look shiny in photos. Yes, it looks gorgeous in real life, but it does NOT usually translate well to photos.
I just thought I'd throw that out there.
Thanks for the tip!
