definitely start by going to a department store / sephora for a makeover or 2 to see what look you’d like.. then have them teach you step by step – or check out youtube.

primer is good to have it stay on, then foundation, concealer and loose powder. i don’t have a good suggestion for primer but i like nars.

you might also get more feedback posting under beauty

I don’t have a website, but as luck would have it there is an article in this month’s issue of Glamour that walks you step-by-step of how to do make-up like the pros…and it answered some of your questions.  Check it out!

Nordstrom tends to have really good MUAs…

primer before foundation

eyeshadow primer before eyeshadow

bronzer for shaping

blush for glow

highlighter for shaping – cheekbones and brow bones

eyelinew to make eyes pop

a good waterproof mascara (and maybe some false lashes?)

In lieu of trying to do it yourself and buying what may end up being hundreds of dollars on makeup you’re not likely to use again, you could always make an appointment for makeup application at one of the counters like MAC or Bobby Brown. That way you get your day of makeup done by a professional…..

DIY wedding makeup is totally do-able!

Good luck at Sephora, I’m sure they’ll help out! Pay attention to the techniques they use to apply it and practice, practice, practice. You’ll do great!

I went to Sephora and bought everything, the girl was AWESOME, I had the best experience and now I feel confident I can pull off my look for the big day!

They are so awesome! They give you instruction and a face chart and everything.

One tip, she told me do eye primer and than apply my eyemakeup. Than do everything else, like foundation and bronzer, this way if the eye makeup powder smudges or drops down onto your cheek, you can easily wipe away without messing up your freshly applied foundation! It helps so much
