    Thanks! I just bought some mascara, but realized it wasn't waterproof after. So I went and saw that L'Oreal was on sale - ew, I know why it was horrible. It's waterproof but I felt like my eyelashes would never come off. So I'm back to square one, and need to get waterproof everything for next month.

    Also - what are you girls wearing on your lips? I want some sort of color, but I don't normally wear lipstick so I don't know what is good and will stay (I'm not sure how to reapply without having FH carry it in his pocket lol). Any tips?

      i've tried out a couple of the DiorShow waterproof mascaras, but so far they haven't lived up to their price tag. good thing sephora has a great return policy and i've just exchanged the "blackout" for the "iconic" (both waterproof version)

      The Lash Injection Mascara by Too Faced left me with racoon eyes before lunchtime.

      my test is a regular day at work then off to a hot yoga class. will let you know of any amazing results.
      UH OH I was totally planning on getting the diorshow waterproof- can you tell me what you didn't like about it??

        At Sephora, the artist helping me quietly suggested L'Oreal Voluminous waterproof. Personally, I like L'Oreal Double Extend - even better than some of the more expensive ones I've tried (urban decay, yves saint laurent).

        I definitely agree with the greatness of the Urban Decay eye primer! It's the best and keeps any brand of eye shadow in place - even the low end stuff!

          MAC also has a good eyeshadow primer! I will definintely try the L'oreal mascara though, because I know I will be crying the whole wedding weekend :)

            tried the DiorShow Iconic today started in the monring and through a 30 min lunchtime circuit training class + 15 mins in the infrared sauna.

            Not too bad, held up quite well by the end of all that, but left my under eye area grey after a shower.

            Comparing the Iconic to the Voluminous, the Iconic gave thicker lashes (but thicker product) & curled a bit - uses a cool new brush style, but comes with large pricetag ($36 CND). The Voluminous formulation gave pretty full and lush lashes, though not as dark, but much more budget friendly.....for not huge difference as both were well in sweaty environments.

            the voluminous is my new fave everyday mascara. =)

            hope that helps a bit

              Thanks for the mascara and make up tips. I will definitely be crying (since I can't even think about the wedding w/o getting misty) and also wanted to wear make up for our TTD. We end up going under the water too and I know nothing about makeup
              I hear sephora has everything though. I'm thinking just some shadow and mascara.

                Thansk for sharing! I was thinking about this the other day, and I am a BIG crier at weddings, so I can only imagine how I will be at my own, LOL!

                    I ended up using a MAC Splashproof mascara for my wedding and TTD shoot and it held up really well.  I tried it out first during our first few days in the pool and it didn't run.  By the very end of our TTD I had a tiny bit of makeup under my eyes, but I think it was from my eyeshadow or eyeliner, which were not waterproof.  Just make sure to get hubby to check you every now and then :)


                    It made my lashes darker and longer, but they could have been fuller.  I didn't feel like wearing false lashes, and was too happy and laid back to get bogged in details.


                    TTD is SO FUN, good luck to all you desties!!

                      Useful information. I will go ahead and test some of it during parties leading up to the wedding.
