Get your wedding day face on!

Makeup on your wedding day can be daunting.  Hiring a makeup artist may not be in your budget or finding one to go on location for your destination wedding may be a challenge.  I have some easy steps for you to create a beautiful look.  A little practice and the right tools will make all of the difference.

You can see how makeup can completely transform a face from beautiful to drop dead stunning with this book of tricks.

Youtube.com video for contour powder application.  Easy to watch.  Only nine minutes long.  Tiffany uses this exact palate to create contours.  A great value at only $18.95 on Amazon.com.  

Every makeup artist I know has always said if you have the money buy Laura Mercier foundation products.  This is a small starter set perfect for your big day.  $65.00 at Sephora.com.  I cannot stress to you enough how important a good base is to your wedding day makeup.  Perfection only comes in these expensive bottles.  If you have flawless skin I would still recommend the tinted moisturizer for a more uniform tone.

If you have been using sponges or your fingers you may not be getting the best results and for sure are losing money on the wasted foundation.  In my opinion foundation brushes are CRITICAL to a well applied base.  They allow the foundation to glide over fine lines and blend evenly along the jaw and hair line.  Your fingers will not provide a seamless blend.  This brush is only $5.99 and it is eco friendly to boot!
