Remember that you actually DO want your makeup to be heavier than what you’d wear to work or even out for the evening, because of the photos.

Yeah, I’d like to follow this as well. I’m doing my own makeup, so I’ve tried to focus on my skin… primer, powders, a good concealer, and a sunscreen/ moisturiser. I think I’m right in saying that the base products should be the more expensive ones and the “surface” stuff (eyeshadow etc) can be cheaper?

@Galang_Gyal:  I wouldn’t say I was a guru, LOL! But I do think that on the occasions I’ve been professionally made up, what made the real difference was my skin texture. The way it all looked so flawless. That definitely made the biggest difference to how I normally look!

@Galang_Gyal:  I think this is a worry shared by a lot of bees! But you know, I saw my friend all made up on the way to her wedding, before she got changed, and FI and I were like “OMG, I think she’s just been shot with a makeup gun”. As soon as she put on that ivory dress though, it was OK. I think you sometimes need a lot (or, at least, more than you would think) if you’re pale skinned and wearing a light colour, otherwise you can look too washed out.

It’s a balancing act for me, because I have very pale, yellow toned skin with very dark hair and eyes… not the usual colouring!

@JLR1982:  +1, seeing a picture would help.

I don’t know if she does this, but airbrushing often looks more natural. 

You probably do need blush.

I think the biggest point of negotiation would be the eye makeup.
