My other suggestion, once you go get your makeup done, is to PRACTICE!!!! If you aren't used to wearing makeup, especially things like face makeup/foundation, you need to work on putting it on correctly. Same thing with eyeshadow, liner, etc. Whichever counter you go to, they should give you a "map" of what color they put where.

 

I just got my face done at the Chanel counter by some superstar makeup artist - this dude was AWESOME!!!! I cannot even believe how flawless he made my skin look! he did amazing eye makeup too, but i couldn't look at it and tell what he did, so I had them map it for me. Soooo helpful. And I will practice....and go to MAC and Bobbi Brown before I'm through!

Oh my gosh! I have a guy at the Chanel counter at Macy's near me that I just want to pick up and carry around in my pocket so he can keep it up through the day like he does it!

I still prefer MAC's colors over Chanel though.

I agree with jerseykitten!!!

I'm a make-up artist myself, and the first thing I tell my clients that are doing their own make-up (or hair) for a big event, is to PRACTICE! With make-up you might want to write down what you did, because on the day of, your nervous might kick in and you will sure to forget something.

Also for sure go to MAC, etc and pick their brains a bit!

Yeah, like clarisse mentioned just be careful of shimmery (and some even say mineral) makeup which can make your face look lighter in photographs. I was researching good makeup to wear during a wedding and almost all sites said this.

Oh this is great.....I had no idea that shimmery make-up washes you out in pictures. Damn!!! I love shimmery make-up too! When it gets closer to the date I am going to do a make up session at MAC. MAC can be expensive so I think I will just get the foundation and stuff there and get similar eye shadow at a less expensive place. Oh and the lipstick too!

Another thing too is to know how to apply it, Mary Kay has different shades for different places on your eyelid so its so easy to apply and it always looks great- I have been applying my makeup like that forever and so many people ask me how I do it! - Also if you go to the makeup counters have them not only put the name but have them actually put the makeup on a face card for you that way you can match when you are at another store!

 

Oh and for warm humid weather I love maybeline mousse and all over color sticks (you can use both on eyes/cheeks and lips)

That way they usually give you a bit of a lesson and can recommend colours for you based on your wedding colours. Be sure to mention if you plan to be a little tanned or if you need products for skin that may be a little more dewy (from the heat/humidity) and they can advise you.
Good luck!
I've seen others post this idea as well, and I really think this is some of the best advice I have found so far on this forum! I had been stressing over having my make up done at the spa at the resort and who knows how's it's going to end up, but now I'm going to make an appointment at MAC at least a few months ahead of time and that way I can practice and tweak things as needed.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
