Hi there Bride-To-Be!  If you are planning your wedding, you have about a million things to think about, decide on, and pay for, so every little bit of advice helps!  If you are trying to save money and thinking about doing your makeup yourself for your wedding, here are a few tips!

1- You definitely don't want dark circles showing up in your wedding photos, so here's how to disguise them!  After you put your foundation on, apply a concealer that is one shade lighter than your skin tone under your eyes, blend well and then set that with a translucent powder so it stays.

2- Instead of eyeshadow that can crease and wear off over time, try using eyeliner on your lids.  Don't use a liquid eyeliner though, that will make a mess on your eyelids and get all cakey and flake off (trust me, I know)....use an eyeliner pencil, and make sure to blend well with a smudge brush.

3- The most important thing I can stress when doing your makeup for your wedding or just for a random Tuesday...please, highlight your eyebrows!  Your eyebrows frame your face and make a world of difference when they are highlighted.  Makeup stores sell brow highlighters, but those don't work as well (in my opinion) as powder or shadow.  Find a shade close to the color of your eyebrows...if you have light eyebrows, try one shade darker, if you have dark eyebrows, try one shade lighter.  Take a clean eyebrow brush or any makeup brush that is small and flat, or that you think would work well in applying makeup to your eyebrows....and highlight them with that color.  Be careful not to go overboard with the highlighting, you don't want it to be obvious, you're going for subtle.  Then there you go, you'll notice a huge difference between non-highlighted eyebrows and highlighted.  Honestly, if I were running short on time, and I only had time to put makeup on one part of my face, I would only do my eyebrows....it's THAT important.  :)

I hope this helps!  I love makeup so much, that I actually have my certification in Makeup Artistry!  I hope you like my tips!  If you have any questions, feel free to email me, loren@fun107.com.
