Wedding Makeup

I've actually been thinking about my wedding makeup quite a bit. I intend to do it myself or have someone (bridal party or family member) help me out. I've been a Clinique girl since I first started to wear "real" makeup back in the 9th grade, but I thought the time had come to try something new, so I bit the bullet and purchased the Bare Minerals starter kit. The commercials make this stuff seem so amazing and I've been wanting to try it for a couple of years now. After I made my purchase I came home, watched the instructional DVD and gave it a go. The first try didn't turn out so well, but today was much better. I love the way it feels on my face (like I'm not wearing anything), but I'm not sure yet if it's wedding worthy or not. Don't get me wrong, the makeup is great and has a very natural look that I definitely love for everyday wear, but I think I need something a tad more dramatic for the big day. I'm also not sure how it will look in pictures. I have a very shiny t-zone and might need something with more coverage and that's more absorbent. I also have darkness and wrinkles under my eyes due to being a grown up the past 2.5 years. It seems like just yesterday I was being mistaken for a 12 yr old, but now there are times I don't even get carded...sigh....Anyway, before I disregard Bare Minerals as my wedding day makeup I think I'm going to travel back to Sephora in the next couple of weeks and see what I can get to add to the starter kit. Maybe I'll ask one of the 20 million workers they have there each weekend for some "professional" advice.

Sara...Sara is the answer! That girl does the most amazing things with make-up! .. or Prescilla!!!!

P.S. Please keep your natural look; going over the top is for when you are my age. I enhance all of my features with third-layer special effects just in hopes I can be carded as a grandmother. We know how young I look.
