blazing Mexico Heat affecting makeup?

what makeup do you think will not "melt" (or last longer) air brushing? Regular makeup?

What do you recommend? Anyone test this out yet?

 

Thanks!!

I went to Sephora pre-wedding, and had a two hour consultation (and spent $400) on an entire new face. The hourglass veil primer and the Makeup Forever Base and Powder worked amazingly, and looked flawless! I also love the Too Faced bronzer, very natrual and long lasting. 

 

The spa at my resort did have all MAC products, but I chose to use my own primer, base, powder, and bronzer, and just let them do my eyes!!!  It is inevitable you will sweat, and cry, but this makeup withstood it pretty well! Good luck!

I meant to say, I'm still trying to decide between doing my own make-up and hiring someone. I love the look of airbrush, but it might not be in our budget, so I'm also thinking of how I might do my own face, especially what products to use, in case it comes to that.

my wedding package actually inclued wedding day make-up, but considering that I've had more failed makeup consultations than success, I thought I was better off doing my own or at least be prepared to do a complete re-do if I end up hating how I look after the resort spa was finished with me.  Let me know if you want the names of the waterproof mascara and eye liner that I also purchased.  I have all of it at home and can check later.

MAC really does have the best pigments for eyeshadow.  And I'm glad the hourglass veil primer worked well for you too, it gives me added confidence in selecting it.

Thanks.  Yes, I would like to know the eyeliner and especially mascara.  No matter what mascara I use, I often end up with dark circles under my eyes from it.  While I don't have an oily face, I think the area around my eyes is an exception.  Eyeshadow always creases on me, as well, no matter the type or brand.

Make sure to hydrate under your eyes, a good eye cream is by MAC, then do concealer on top. I always use a primer on my eyes to resist the crease, I like the eye primer by Too Faced.

Okay, since eyeshadow always creases on you, I have to assume that you've never tried Urband Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion - it's magic in a tube!  I've been using this stuff for a few years now and nothing else compares.  I have never seen a crease in my lid and this stuff really helps bring out the true pigmentation in shadows. You can actually get this at Nordstrom Rack for half the price of what it retails for in Sephora.  I have also heard really good things about Too Faced Shadow Insurance, but have never used it myself. I also tried MAC's Underground Primer and had creasing in about 4 hours - no good.

 

I decided to do individual lash extensions for the wedding, but I really like Lancomes Lash Power Mascara. And for eyeliner I went with Stilla Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner.

Thanks.  I'll try a few things out before the big day and see what works for me.

Thank you!  I've used various primers, but they all tend to crease on me, too.  I'll give your recommendations a try, and I appreciate the Nordstrom Rack tip!  I rarely go there, so I wouldn't have known otherwise.

Great thread! My skin tends to get oily and shiny in warm weather (especially my t-zone) so I'll be watching for recommendations! 

 

Also, does any body know of a good waterproof mascara? All the ones I have ever tried have really lacked in the "va-voom" department..

I've noticed this too, there really doesn't seem to be a greatwaterproof option that's also voluminous. and I think it may be the trade off which is why I'm doing extentions. Let us know if you find anything that excels in both categories

YES Urban Decay eyeshadow primer is MAGIC! No creasing for hourss! Also the make up mist, keeps your make up stay put for longer!

    • 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?
