To clarify, until this morning, I did not own makeup. any makeup.
When it comes to the wedding, my bridesmaid will be doing my makeup, but we had a trial at a beauty counter to get the right colours and products for me. At the age of 26 I decided it was maybe time to own some makeup of my own. We went to the clinique counter, for a full consultation (£30 redeemable against anything you buy - call me a sucker if you want, I need all the help I can get!) and this is the end result:
and thats all semblance of anonymity gone, right there.
maybe it doesnt look like much, I dont know, but then we wanted it to look natural. I've bought foundation and lip pencil for now, they didn't have the colour lipstick we used in the trial for now, but I'll go back and get that too, but the eye colour stuff we'll probably buy other stuff thats cheaper.
