I need some help with make-up application

Recommended Posts

So I am trying to save some $$ and am considering doing my own make-up. I am pretty good at doing my own so that's why I thought I could save a little extra money in this department. My problem is that I don't know what colors I should use and how I should go about applying my make-up. I usually wear brown tones.....brown shimmery eye shadow and brown eyeliner on the top and the bottom with mascara. The wedding colors are light pink and chocolate brown. Does anyone have any inspiration pics or ideas. I would greatly appreciate some help. Thanks girls!!!!!

I hope this isn't totally pointless advice but you might consider going to a MAC or other makeup counter (I'm a big MAC & Chanel fan, but everyone has their favourites). You can generally make an appointment for a make-over for a pretty minimal cost (free to up to $50) and then the cost can usually be put towards cosmetics. 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!

Yeah, I agree with Clairisse. I love MAC makeup and maybe they can point you in the right direction. Do you have green eyes? If so, my sister has green eyes and she looks beautiful in gold shimmery colors-they make her eyes pop.

I agree. Go to MAC. They will be able to help you achieve the look you're going for. Sephora is also a great make up place too- but I don't know if there is one in your area.

I agree with the above. I went to the Laura Mercier counter (also a good one to try in addition to MAC - Bobbi Brown also has great options that go with the colors you like) and had them do my make up and write down everything. I got many samples of things too.

 

My advice would be not to skimp on anything skin-related for your wedding day (e.g., primer, foundation, concealer, setting/translucent powder), but you can save $$ on eyeshadows if you find colors you like. L'Oreal has great colors as does Sonia Kashuk (@ Target).

The climate will be humid so you may need to adjust the type of foundation or powder you would normally wear.

 

Good luck!

I'm agreeing with and doing the above also!

 

The MAC girls are amazing. I have walked in and said "I have Spirit (matte lipstick color) and I love it. I need something slightly darker and just a little more shine." The 1st thing the girl recommended was absolutely perfect.

Oh - one thing I just remembered. I'm sure you will - but just in case - do tell them that you will be wearing the makeup for photographs/flash. (I once bought this amazing slightly shimmery foundation from MAC that made me look like a million dollars in person and like some sort of space-alien in photos!) Generally though, there products are nice and pigmented so they last and they look fabulous in photos.

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
