doing your own makeup?

Please recommend your lipstick/gloss to me.

I never wear anything beyond clear gloss (because my lips are naturally red) and I hate the cakey feeling of lipstick so I usually end up (hopelessly) wiping or licking it off.

I want something natural looking for photos, but maybe something that will last longer than half an hour?

Help, please!

you could always to do mac or something and try the different color. See what looks best on you. I love mac, but you can go to any cosmetic counter.

I use the MAC lip gloss called Valentine. It looks like a Juicy Tube. The color is bright pink, but goes on clear with a little color. I love the way it feels and it lasts for a long time.

I also recommend MAC. I did my own makeup for the ceremony and used a shade called Brick-O-La. The people at their stores and counters are super helpful and will figure out a good shade for you if you ask!

Mac Nymphette is what I use on every bride I've ever done.
It looks great in photos and on every skintone.

No, no, Jess - I only did my own for the ceremony! The really good makeup, at the reception, was done by the amazing Sherrie Long (she also did my updo). =)

Oooh I'm so happy to hear that Sherrie Long did your hair and make-up, aching! She'll be doing mine too, and your pics are the best vendor recommendation I've seen for her =)

Yay, JD, Sherrie's fantastic! She's not the most personable by email, which threw me a little, but in person she's wonderful. I didn't even have a trial, which was definitely risky, but just based on a few photos and my verbal description of what I wanted, she pulled it off!

also try sephora, they carry tons of different brands if mac doesn't work out for you. the associates there can be helpful, but i would bring a friend with you just for an honest opinion.

On my wedding day I wore L'Oreal Color Riche Lip Gloss in Soft Nude. I also like their Rich Rose...both are very natural and light.
