The first lip color was WAY too dark for you! I don’t know what they were thinking. HAHA the last photo is much nicer, good choice!

Bare Escentuals makes great make-up but the in store experience isn’t always the greatest. I suspect that part of it is due to the lighting (it’s dim and yellow), but also that not every person hired to work inside knows what they’re doing. Maybe you had the misfortune of getting the person that wasn’t that expert in that profession.

My friend and I both had bad experiencing at the Bare Essentials store (separately). I guess because we’re both Asian, so the people helping us might have fixated on “Asians are yellow” and kept giving us yellow foundation powders which didn’t match our skin tones. We both went to Sephora afterwards to wipe our faces off and ended up finding the powders that matched our skin tone by ourselves.

They did HORRIBLE! It really takes about from how Beautiful you are. I’ve never seen anyone have that dark of make up on and look natrual lol. I Love the second picture, they did a great job making you look natural with just enough extra ๐Ÿ™‚ Gorgeous.

Wow, actually probably a good thing they did a crappy job on your make up. You shouldn’t use mineral make up anyway for wedding photographs.  It doesn’t do well. The  2nd picture you look sooo much better

I’m having a hard time understanding how they’d think dark eyeshadow up to your eyebrows would be a good look.  How disappointing!!!!

Your second picture is gorgeous.  Thanks for sharing these with us ๐Ÿ™‚
