Hey bees, was wondering if you guys had any suggestions on who to get for make-up?? Not sure if I should maybe go to sephora/make-up counter? I do not really wear make-up..eyeliner and a lip gloss does it for me, so i’m a little clueless on the topic, so help would be great, thanks=) Or if anyone has any suggestions for make-up artists in south jersey area, pls share…appreciate it!

If your not too afraid of makeup counters, it’s a good idea to go to 2 or 3 places to get an idea of what you like. Sephora is a good place to start. I think it’s free if you buy an item that they try on you. You might want to try the MAC make-up counter but if it seems to extreme, the Lancome counter does a good job too.

We’ll im not a true “make-up” artist i dont claim to be a professional but i do dabble on the side and I do make-up in my salon, what i always suggest for a formal event such as a wedding or a prom is dont do anything too dramatic … take your everyday look and step it up a notch. The last thing you want to do is having a face full of makeup and look back and think that wasn’t “me” at all.
Foundation is a must for photos (dont forget to check areas like backs or chest that might need a little concealing work) … i perfer a mineral makeup … bareminerals is good but i swear by glo minerals
You can just play up your everyday look by adding some eyeshadow & mascara and some tinted lip gloss or a sheer lipstick. If you want to get a little more dramatic play up either your eyes or your lips.. remember never both! Most poeple who dont wear much makeup tend to like the look of a heavier eye than a heavy bold lip
Here is a tip… look at the makeup of the girl that is going to be doing your makeup…. if you dissaprove of her makeup move on i promise you it wont get any better on you
Be weary of makeup counters just because some times they will only do half of your face & want to teach you to do the other half… not what you want on your wedding day be sure to ask about that first. Also your not gonna get to do a trial run on your makeup.
My suggestion is find a salon that does makeup for a price and opt to have your makeup done there.
