I don’t know where to begin. FI’s cousin is doing my wedding-day makeup. Today I bought some beautiful eyeshadow, but I need to put together the rest of the look and I don’t know how. I’ve never been big on makeup, so I’m lost. Have any of you done DIY makeup? Can you pleeeeease tell me what all I should buy to create a flawless look?

Definitely get a good foundation- one that won’t melt off or go on cakey. The ones that give a photo finish will be a good investment. If you can spurge I suggest givenchy photo perfection or Dior air flash, a more budget friendly alternative is revlon photo finish.
In addition, a concealer if you need which can also double as the eye shadow base/primer. In terms of blush, a soft pink or peach depending on your skin tone.
If you want dramatic lashes, consider false lashes other wise a voluminizing mascara. I like Dior or mayballine. What color is your eyeshadow? Are you planning a subtle look or a more dramatic look?
Also, if you can buy a set of brushes- the makeup goes on much better with the brushes than with the sponges and stuff that come withe some cosmetics.

I also plan on doing my own makeup..
A good tip I read is to make sure that your foundation doesn’t have any SPF in it.. apparently it can look weird with flash photography!
