See, when my make-up runs out, I wait until the day of a special occasion. . .a wedding, my birthday, New Year's Eve, that sort of thing. At this point I've got my outfit planned, my shoes selected and I probably just got a haircut, you know, for the blow-out. So I head on over to the department store make-up counter and. . .tada! I get my make-up done. For free! The exact details vary according to brand/store, but at MAC, spend $65 in product and the make-up job is on the house. . .it's a steal. Get where I'm going with this brides? It might not be a convenient route to go on for the wedding day, but if you've got an upcoming bridal shower, engagement party, bachelorette party or rehearsal dinner, and you're out of foundation, lip gloss, mascara, eye-liner, eye shadow, you name it, head on over to your favorite make-up counter, spend what you'd spend anyway and. .voila! Walk out feeling pretty and party-ready. Here are some great make-up looks, courtesy InStyle Weddings, for some inspiration.
