My main make up routine is:
1. Cleanse and Tone EVERY DAY
2. Moisturise - I got a great face cream from USA
3. Apply foundation
4. Apply dusting powder
5. Blush
6. Mascara
7. Lip gloss
8. Out the door

I am really basic when it comes to makeup - I don't use a lot on my eyes cause you cannot see them under my glasses!!!

I'd suggest getting a professional to do your make up on your big day. For my wedding I was adament that I'd just do my own make up as I didn't want to waste money paying for someone to do it when they will just overdo it and make me look like a clown. In the end I was convinced to let a friend do my make up, she owns a couple of beauty salons and is great at what she does and she wouldn't let me pay her lol

My make up turned out better than I could have ever hoped for. She even gave me false lashes that looked awesome, I was really hesitant about these at first as I was worried I'd look like a drag queen. The lashes she used were lots of seperate lashes which she glued on and they looked natural but spectacular!

My tip is that if you have skin problems- scars, birth marks etc Use Dermablend

I have it and am using it for my wedding to cover a keloid scar- it also covers tattoos when you dont want them to be seen.

I think the most improtant thing my make-up artist told me to do before she arrive ( to do my make-up for my wedding in May) is to cleanse and moisterise with good products 30 min before, it helps everything "stick" better.

For my eyes I have a great product by Clarins called eye flash. Its a mositeriser that I put on before the make up, it gets rid of puffyness and helps hid dark circles- yes it really works, I used it under my make-up on a day that I was very sick and had little sleep and was dehydrated (think, black puffy eyes) in my grad photos you can not tell at all that I was sick :D

I bought some Dermablend at a chemist's several years ago to cover up my tattoo. It's pricey but you don't use much and it lasts for ages if you only wear it on formal occasions.

My big tip is mineral make-up. Talcum based powders don't agree with my skin. They get cakey and yuck by the end of the day. I find mineral powders are brilliant by comparison. It doesn't cake, looks very natural and doesn't slide or clump if you sweat. The only bad thing about it is if you have open pores it tends to settle in them and make them more noticeable. If you use a foundation that covers the pores or a pore correcting filler you should be able to avoid that problem.

I worked in cosmetics for just over three years, doing make-overs, etc, and I found they work best with a liquid foundation, usually one containing oil. Your foundation bottle should usually tell you the best way to apply it, some will say use fingers (it needs the heat of your hands to blend properly), or to use an applicator like a brush or sponge.

I'm terrible....I was lucky enough to inherit my mums beautiful skin! I've never taken off my make-up (except in the shower), never toned, etc - and neither has my mum who's now 62! When I was younger, people used to tell me it would catch up with me but I'm 31 and still waiting!

I use a Natio tinted sunscreen as a foundation and then a little powder over that.

Eyeliner, mascara and a little lippy and I'm out the door!

Happy weight - 68 (I MADE IT!!!)

Hi all, thanks for your tips. I ended up DIY, and I think I did an ok job, but I went to Myer and got them to suggest the best foundation and lippy for me and my sis bought me a good waterproof mascara (not that I got teary on the day anyway)

We could've used that dermablend for the bloke in the end... his bucks night got a bit silly and there were marks he needed to have covered up. Let's just say that the boys learned a lot about buyer beware when purchasing a 'lap dance' from the 'dominatrix' at a strip club for the buck on his bucks night :evil: :roll: :lol:
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
