I did my own make-up and it was a hodge podge from a lot of different companies. I used foundation from clinique, eyeliner from Ulta (a brand they carry that I can’t remember), revlon lipstick, wet and wild blusher…really just stuff I already owned. I didn’t have an inspiration, instead, I just focused on a nice natural look like I would do for any day, just done really carefully with more emphasis on making my eyes stand out. It was a natural look that worked well for me, but then again, I don’t normally wear a lot of make-up.

I would go to a department store or sephora type place with alot of makeup and I would get a trial or two (maye on different days).  I would also make it known that it is for your wedding (most people say you will want more than ususal…)  The stuff i hear is best is Clinique, it’s their sports line or something, made to stay on.  MAC high def, covers any flaws but it stays put (a little too much for me) and alot of people like Smashbox (lots of colors, none of them match me).  Like your normal makeup purchase, be sure to go outside in the natural light to see if you have a good match.  I would also pay close attention to how she puts all of it on.  The Bobbi Brown and MAC counters are the Best as they have the most training.  I had a great experience  at the MAC counter, it cost me “$50 in products” (meaning you have to buy) for the trial but I felt it was worth it.  I actually looked great!  (that was after two pretty bad trials with other MUA who do weddings…)

I would definitely go to some type of make-up counter or Sephora-type place and have them do your make-up and write out directions. So many times I’ve had people do a cool thing my eyes or something and I have no idea how to do it. You’ll have to purchase products, but at least you’ll know how to use them!

I watched a bunch of you tube videos on bridal makeup.  Wanted to make my eyes stand out but still look natural, got a lot of eyeliner tricks.  And also used a St. Tropez bronzer on my face and chest for no tan lines and it worked, another product recommendation from Youtube.  I used lots of browns and golds on my eyes…
