  • Go to my website and take the Virtual Makeover, you can use one of the models on the site or you can upload a photo of yourself. Then you can print out the results and you will already know what it looks like on you before hand.

  • Before you are makeing up, Use a concealer under the eyes, to match the skin not lighter than, it's to bring out the eyes, not isolate them. Use mascara to enhance the deepness of eye color, and shape. To get out the shine, it's simple , buy a foundation the name coty corn silk, or it may be just corn silk, not sure. Match your skin tone perfectly first. Then put a blusher of earthen color such as deep rose with a brownish under tone to lift under the bone structure. All that 's left is lip color, use a shine free type by Revlon. Deep brownish / red.

  • The best makeup to wear on your wedding day is the same makeup you wear every day. you dont want your make up or your hair to look "dated" you dont want to look back in 20 years and say ugh my makeup/hair is so 2009 (remember the wonderful styles of the 80's and 90's) your fiance obviously thinks your beautiful, so when you lift your veil you dont want him to be thinking who the heck is that. Keep it simple. Thats my suggestion, Congrats and good luck!
