I think DIY make up is a great idea! I am having my friend do mine but I will be using some samples from Mary Kay. I didn’t really want to buy a whole set of makeup that I will probably only use once.

@Samantha7: It shouldn’t cost anything if you go to a major department store.  Be careful of which products you buy though–a perfect lipstick, blush, foundation or other signature item is fine, but don’t get pushed into buying simple things like eyeliner, transluscent powder, etc. if you can get it at the drugstore or already have it.

I personally don’t like MAC b/c I have found the coverage I needed without it feeling heavy.

They would be a great place to talk to about application though.

Day to Day and for the Big Day:

I myself wear Smashbox Photofinish Foundation

Monistat Chaffing gel for primer (it’s the same as Smashbox primer)

Smashbox concealer b/c it’s the best coverage I’ve found for my skin issues

Bare Minerals Foundation Powder for my loose Powder (i like the coverage better than a regular pressed powder)

Bare Minerals Warmth for my cheeks and bridge of nose

any ol blush for the apples of my cheeks.

MUFE HD Finishing Powder to set my make up (although I have heard the elf makes something similar for MUCH cheaper)

and Smashbox limitless long wear lipgloss

I bought my brushes from Target Studio Tools:

Foundation and Blush

CVS got another brush

Fluffy Powder Brush & slanted eye liner brushe that I actually use for my eyebrows

I follow Ms Rainbows Ace Your Face for application minus the moisturizer b/c it makes my face shiny and too oily

Have fun =)

I love MAC, and I had my makeup done for the wedding by the MAC counter at Macy’s.  It was $40, but you get $40 worth of make-up so essentially it’s free.  I would recommend making an appointment maybe even on a day that you are going to do something fun so you can go out and test your makeup.

@Samatha7 I mix it right on my hand…. I’m sure there are other ways but it doesn’t bother me… I usually have a little towl with  my make-up to wipe of brushes and such so I’ll just use that to clean my hand =)
