Those are gorgeous. I wish I could do make up…mascara is about as far as I get. When I do add eyeshadow I just look like a little girl who got into mom’s make up. Cool

@pinkpetal: I did my own. I went to Ulta ( a big makeup store) and they help to show me how and what to use. I bought PUR mineral makeup and loved it soo much! It covered everything and made my skin look so smooth but not like I was wearing makeup at all. So many people asked me on that day who did my makeup I was so proud to say that I did! I applied this very heavy, and in the wedding photos it didn’t really come accross as too heavy. I also purchased a few of MAC’s eyeshadow kits that have the different shades to create a smokey eye.

Oooh getting married in Mexico!!! Sounds awesome!

I’m doing my own makeup aswell. One product I HIGHLY recommend is Make Up Forever’s HD foundation. It looks so natural and it photographs really well.

I would also recommend gel eyeshadows. They’re easy to apply and they stay on really well.

@mwitter80: Lashes or mascara?  Either way, very nice.

OP and others: One thing I will caution about mineral makeup or SPF makeup is, although it looks fabulous on, it can play tricks in your photographs.  Sometimes it appears extra reflective or ashy.  Your photographer may be able to work around this though.

Makeup Forever HD is my suggestion for foundation. Stays put and photographs amazingly.

Here’s pics from the day. In the first one you can see that I’m wearing purple eye makeup like your bigger 2nd pic, but close up shots didn’t show it as well.

@heather25: I had eyelash extensions put on. I adored them.

@mwitter80: They look amazing.  As does your makeup.  I think extensions are the way to go for me.  They are dramatic but at the same time appear to be your natural lashes (unlike strips on me).

I want to second the suggestion for Makeup Forever HD foundation. I used it for our engagement pics and it looked like I have naturally flawless skin, which I definitely don’t.

@heather25: strips on me are weird looking too. I think because my eyes are more almond shaped maybe. I had Xtreme lashes done. I know there’s different brands so I figured I would recommend this one. They stayed on for 3 weeks. You can keep getting them filled. I had mine for 3 months or so, so that I could get used to them. I want them back 🙂
