@carshlyn: hi there and thanks for the nice offer :-)! actually i am thinking of doing my own make up and was wondering if you had any advice on how to do the eyes, to make them look bigger and but not too dark and dramatic, plus how to make sure everything stays in place during the whole ceremony?

many thanks in advance and happy planning!

Any suggestions for those unwanted blemishes? After I get them they leave spots but it takes a while to go away. I can usually cover them with makeup but any other suggestions? Thanks : )

@carshlyn: Any foundation suggestions? I’m giving Makeup Forever HD a whirl today and I am just not happy with it….kinda sliding off my face. I think I look better when I wear my Maybelline FIT as crazy as that sounds.

This is the one detail that is making me flip out a little. I’m getting close to the wedding date and I’ve found a MUA, but I’m not super happy about her work and thinking about doing it myself. It just don’t want to have to worry about my makeup all day.

@cleve_girl01: I agree. i wasn’t crazy about makeup forever hd when I first started using it, but I figured i’d stick with it since I paid $40 bucks for it. It’s been a couple of months now and I think it is nice light foundation for summertime, but at the end of the day it kinda wears off. I will probably go back to using Lancome’s Tient Idole Comfortable Makeup (14 hour) for my wedding. It’s full coverage, but doesn’t make you look cakey (a little goes a long way). It really makes you look flawless and lasts ALL DAY. As a matter of fact, i just used it this past weekend becuase I was going to a BBQ and didn’t want my makeup to melt off my face. When i got home, it looked as good as when I put it on that morning.

What primer would you recommend? I have relatively oily skin that gets shiny easily, but I also do not like a completely matte look.

@Waves2: What kind of primer were you using under the MUFE? I think that may be part of my problem…I’ve been using the sample and only have the Loreal primer which seems to be adding greasiness.

I’m going to have to check out the Lancome foundation again. I tried it at one point and couldn’t find a shade light enough that didn’t turn orange. Darn this ridiculously fair skin! I do use their concealer though, and love it.

@cleve_girl01: I’ve been wearing MUFHD without using a primer. I only use primer for special occasions (i know sounds kinda lame), but because it’s so expensive (smashbox photo finish primer), I kinda wanted to save it for the day of my wedding. I have fair skin too, and before I tried MUFHD I was using Lancome Tient Idole confortable makeup in Ivory 2 C. I love it!! I can wear it year round because I don’t tan in the summer, I try to stay out of the sun as much as possible.

@Waves2:  Hmm…I’m gonna have to try lancome again. I’m super fair, but also very yellow, which is where the problem comes in. Most really light shades are way to pink. Ah, the search continues. πŸ™‚

Thanks! What are your favorite products to use on brides? I have pretty much the same problem as Lauren, I break out from stress and my skin takes ages to go back to normal. What are your favorite concealer/foundations to use on brides with yellow undertones to their skin? ( I am hispanic and everything I’ve tried is either too yellow or too pink) I’m really looking for any tips on how to fix the blotchy problem and heal my skin or to cover evenly.

@carshlyn: I tried MUFE HD again with the MUFE primer, and holy cow, what a difference!!! I was sweating moving furniture for like 2 hours, and my face still looked fresh and flawless. Okay, I’m a believer now. πŸ™‚ Thank you for the advice.
