Make-up GALORE

One of my bridesmaids and I went shopping last night at good ol' Sephora for some wedding make-up. I have decided to do my own makeup for the wedding only because I generally dont like the way other people do it. I had gone in to Sephora back when my sister was in town to get some ideas on what i would need to have "flawless" makeup for the wedding day. At that time, I had it done by one of the sale associates and she wrote down everything she used on me. So last night, I finally decided to breakdown and buy some. Here's what I got:
HD Make Up Forever Foundation and HD Powder. I had originally tried on Diorskin Forever. But I have heard great things about the HD line, that I decided to go with that instead. Also, the HD Powder makes your face feel sooo smooth. This I love. I bought it because of how oily my skin gets throughout the day. I am hoping that it helps that.
My sister had given me the Nars bronzer and blush duo for one of my showers and I just love it too. It is very subtle and natural. This picture really doesnt do it justice.
So I am still on a hunt for eye shadow colors. I cant decide what I want to do. When the girl did my make-up the first time, she used light purples, but it just didnt seem to be dramatic enough. And last night a different girl at Sephora put on some charcoal colors with a warm undertone, that I liked, but I dont think it was the right shade either. I am thinking i want to go more warm with brown tones, to help make my eyes look bluer.. I CANT DECIDE!! Any help on colors or brands is greatly appreciated (I need something that wont clump in the crease of my eye)

Oh, and I am trying out all my new stuff today, to see how it does on extended wear. I'll let you know my thoughts tomorrow.

  1. Makeup Forever and Urban Decay have great shadows but your real key to it not creasing is going to be using a primer specifically for eye shadow. I recommend Laura Mercier's but I hear good things about Benefit and Urban Decay's versions. Also, after you put the primer on make sure you put a layer of shadow down that is the same color as your skin tone - it will help seal everything down.
