    The closer I get to the big day (less than 4 months!), the more anxious I get about my makeup.  I've been trying to read up on beach wedding makeup, but I feel like I don't really get any consistent information.

     

    What are some helpful makeup tips or advice?  I've read that you shouldn't use a moisturizer or makeup with SPF in it the day of, because it could make your face shiny.  What else should we remember to do or avoid?

      I hear to keep some powder or tissue so that you can blot away any shiney... Also I know that airbrush foundation stays much longer than traditional makeup- I'm pretty sure there is no one on my island - where I'm getting married- has it... but maybe they have that on yours.

      I had my makeup done at the spa at the resort I was married at.  I had used moisturizer that morning although, just sparingly as my skin was really moisturized from the humidity.  I think the one thing I was worried about was waterproof products, such as eyeliner and mascara.  If you are doing your own makeup I suggest using products you are familiar with.

        Does anyone have any experience using setting spray to keep your makeup on in the heat?

        I've heard that MAC Fix Plus is a good one, but I've never used it and wonder if there are others out there that have used this or others.

          I've used the Urban Decay setting spray, and it's just ok.  I've heard good things about the MAC one, and I've also heard great things about Model in a Bottle.  I want to try those two before the wedding.

            I think Model in a Bottle was the other one that I'd heard good things about. Thanks for the advice!

              I was thinking about going to MAC and having them do my makeup how I would want it for the wedding and seeing what tips or advice they offer. Then buy the products they use. LOL. I know it will be a pretty penny but its my wedding and I dont want my every day makeup.

              I was thinking about doing the same thing at either MAC or Sephora!

                I'm planning on doing this as well. Are you still going to use the resort makeup person to do it? Or are you going to just do it on your own?

                I've heard some stories about this not going too well if you don't bring your own product and a pretty clear idea of what you want to look like.

                  Any idea how much this would cost for just the consultation without the cost of products?
