You might need a concealer of some sort too, just in case. There is a really good thread in General Chatter at the moment called Hair/Makeup/Outfit of the day which has really good product recommendations. It also has a step by step 'eyes' guide by a professional make up artist (Nut_Shake) which might be of help
Dream.A.Dream did her own wedding makeup, she might have some tips as well
the only make up i had on my wedding day was foundation, concelar, eye liner (thin black) eyebrow pencil, blusher and i used fake lash inserts which looked amazing and stayed on all day even tho i cried my eyes out.
id do basicaly the same make up u usualy wear as u dont want to look too different
i use hair spray to set my make-up when i wear it, maek-up artists dont recommend it but it works better than any make up setting spray that i have used...just be sure to hold your breath or breath out when your spraying it xx
Hi honeybee! I'm normally over in TTC/PG area but took a sneaky peek on here and just had to comment. I did my own make up on the day as I'd seen so many people unhappy when it was done by others (only on the telly though!). What you need to do is PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!!! I wore mine a little heavier than I would normally (which is quite light anyway) as I wanted it to show up in my piccies and for me to not look like I do every day or washed out! I kept it very natural though and was lucky enough to have treated myself to a whole new set of make-up from Virgin Vie (cost hundreds of ús but I got it all free!). I was very calm on the morning itself, but I am a super control freak and I knew everything was in hand. My sister thought I had taken something because I was so chilled, but no, that was all down to my very careful planning - it made it so much easier when putting my face on! Remember to give yourself enough time on the day, and whatever you do don't wear your dress when putting your make up on (nothing worse than a splodge of foundation, or a strip of pink lippie down the front of your dress!). Practice, practice, practice is the key to your success! Oh, and congrats on getting married - hope you have a lovely day!
She's right about the right foundation/primer base meaning no shine SPF causes a glare, which causes light to reflect and leaves you looking ghostly white, sorry if I didn't word that right the first time xxx
ye thanks hunny. I dont know of any foundation, concealer or powder that doesnt contain spf??
Im not even bothered about me getting ready, I'm going to be very organised and stuff. Ill have my hair done at 8am, be in brecon for 10:45 and start doing my make up at 1pm. During that time (11-1) I need to get my 5 bridesmaids sorted out: make up, hair, eyebrows, dresses, shoes & accessories! Im hoping they'll bring their make up with them and they'll help each other with the applying. Two of my bridemaids I can trust completely to look gorgeous but the other 3 will need considerable help. My aunt is a hairdresser so will hopefully help at least two fo them with their hair, and Ill do one of them because her hair is short and I can do it fab for her!
So really, I wont be stressed doing my own or getting ready- I will be stressed making sure my bridesmaids look perfect though!
I find doing my own make up very thereputic and as long as I have the right stuff, I know I can do a good job!
