  1. Wedding makeup tips:
    1. Matte colors. You will be photographed, and matte colors photograph best.

    2. Powder: powder reflects light differently than skin. Therefore, powder your neck and decolletage as well as your face.

    3. Neutrals. You want to look radiant and draw the attention to your face and not to your makeup. Skip the wild stuff this one time and go with neutrals that flatter your particular skin tone.

    4. Contour! Once will be photographed. Use lighter and darker shades of shadow and blush to contour your features. (use a light hand with that blush!) and use a slightly darker powder on features that you want to minimize. Apply lightly. You don't want it to be noticeable that anything's darker. It's a subtle effect but it works.

    5. Framing your eyes: Don't forget mascara and brow gel! You may want to line your upper lids only, or use a very soft touch and a natural brown on your lower lash line. Likely to cry? Use waterproof mascara! ;)

    I actually have been married and been though this makeup and photography...I'm just not married right *now*. lol. ;)

  2. Thanks for the tips Miranda!
    I'm actually dying to meet brides-to-be because I think I'd have so much fun helping them get ready.

    But I have a question to you, and to the other experienced MK ladies out there (I've been a IBC for 4 mo. only!)
    Do brides-to-be feel comfortable having us MK ladies do their makeup?
    Don't they prefer salons or "makeup artists"(because I'm not certified)

    I know we learn a lot with MK. but sometimes I don't feel confident enough to tell people that I'm a makeup professional...

    Tks! Happy Memorial day weekend to all!!!
