A soft pink sounds nice – you can return makeup that you’ve tried and don’t like at CVS and Rite Aid, you might be able to at other chains near you if you don’t have those.

I have blonde hair and blue eyes. I actually use a blue eyeliner. For some reason it makes my eyes pop but it isn’t so harsh as brown or black. I usually wear different tones of brown for my eyelids. I love Physicians Formula. I have a lot of allergies and they are awesome! I wore a very light pink gloss on the big day. Good luck!! Makeup can be hard sometimes. The nice thing is that you can try it out beforehand. I did my own makeup for my day too ๐Ÿ™‚

cupcakequeen42:  Revlon pink velvet lip stick looks good on every skin color. And I would use a tinted moisturizer (Ulta has their own line that’s fairly inexpensive) or tinted Maybelline BB cream just to even out your skin just a little bit. Trust me, even skin will make a world of difference.

You can also return used makeup (and nail polish, and pretty much anything) at Target. That’s pretty much where I get all my cheap makeup because you don’t need to keep track of your receipt – they can look it up with your card. 

You might try the revlon balm stain in Honey. It’s pretty universally flattering, and it’s a chubby crayon type of application. I also second the maybelline BB cream. I’m really fair and I find the fair/light shade is a good match and doesn’t oxidize or turn pink. I went through two tubes of it this spring and summer!

I’m also a big fan of the Mabelline BB cream! It’s so easy to use and makes such a difference. Just a dime sized amount smeared all over the face, and you look radiant! It also helps prime the face for any eye shadows or other makeup you might apply.

Personally, I also set mine with a powder (Neutrogena Skin Clearing Mineral Powder) because my t-zone tends to get oily throughout the day. It provides a little more coverage, too. Neutrogena is usually really nice for sensitive skin. A cheap powder brush from the drug store helps give nice coverage. 

But to answer your question about lipsticks, I would recommend the L’Oreal Colour Riche line. I have probably 4 or 5 tubes in varous colors, light and dark, and they are all comfortable and long-lasting. There are so many beautiful shades that I don’t even know where you should start… Maybe look to your flowers for inspiration?

Do you have a Sephora near you? They are trained to work within your budget and find the genuine best product for you, not just point you to the expensive stuff. They also give you a free sample(s) of pretty much anything you ask for. They can also give you a color IQ thing-y to help you find the perfect shade for foundation/bb/cc cream if you are interested in that at all too.

Try Bhcosmetics.com. They have great makeup at drug store prices.

Can I recommend something? I’m not sure how your skin is, I’m sure it’s beautiful since you don’t need makeup. But, I would suggest getting a mineral powder foundation to wear. Something sheer but looks good in photos. I would also wear a little blush and lightly fill in your brows if you need to. I know that sounds like a lot but I do hair and makeup for weddings and even on brides who don’t want a full face I always do those things because it looks great in photos! The website I mentioned has a lot of great products and palettes with different blush shades and they have great mineral makeup.

Also to elaborate on the bb cream, those are wonderful, however if you plan on wearing it make sure it doesn’t have much spf in it. I would do a trial run and take pictures of yourself with the flash on. Makeup with spf can flash back so to speak with cameras. Just don’t want you to look washed out in any photos!
