Great, thank you for the info on Sephora! I have oily skin, so I'll have to remember the Make up forever.  I will def be spending more than $50, lol.

I thought for sure I would end up with Make Up Forever, but it was terrible on my skin. It really is meant for oily skin, and I have some dry areas. I ended up with the Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Foundation (which is awesome!) and Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation. Both are really hydrating, so they do not make me look dry and flaky, and they give me the coverage I need. I wore them for my engagement photo shoot, which lasted from 8AM-2PM, and they looked great all day!

    I have worn fake eyelashes and in the resort Spa they have shorter and fixed perfectly!

    The girl in the resort preferred not to use it for the make up trial in order to have new eyelashes for the day after.

      Bobbi Brown do some amazing blotting papers which, for me personally, are a wise investment. I have oily skin and they absorb excess oil and perspiration really well (& I don't want to look shiny on my photos lol). Another must for me will be false eyelashes, although I will be getting semi-permanents as I am hopeless at putting the stick on ones on myself ;-)
