my fave make-up
I do my own make-up everyday anyway...I figured I could handle this task. Tommy totally hooked me up for my Valentine's Day present, and gave me a giftcard to M.A.C. cosmetics - I waited to cash it in until the week before the wedding. Let me recommend some of the products that totally rocked my bridal face off :-) As you can see....my look was more natural than glam...which was what I was going for.
A product I never used before that I totally fell in love with was the Paint Eyeshadow. It never creases and helps the other shadows stay in place beautifully. This was my single greatest product purchase...I totally heart this stuff and wear it LOTS!
A friend of mine used the Pro Longwear Lipcolour for her wedding and her lips were the perfect color all night. So I wanted to use that same product. The color lasted forever - and I never reapplied another coat of color (but I did forget the lipgloss top layer at home, so I didn't have the shiny lips all night!) A little sidenote about these products is that there are lots of little "glitters" in the gloss...and I'm not exactly a glitter makeup fan...but I liked it anyway. :-)
I told the makeup consultant that I was interested in a "dewy" complexion. She recommended this blush called, Blushcreme. I used this, and it was fine, but there are so many sparkles in it that I can't bring myself to use it in real life. Sooo...
I'm a BareEscentuals foundation girl through and through.
A friend of mine swore that this Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer was awesome. I bought it last summer and use frequently for special occasions - I'm a huge fan! My face can get pretty shiny....so this stuff keeps the shine at bay.
Those were my favorite wedding beauty products. Just wanted to share my little 2 cents.
*note: Sera asked about what mascara I used...I used a Smashbox waterproof mascara in Black Black. Didn't love...don't recommend it.
