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!

    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!
