Mahima Asks :
I am getting married in June this year and am trying to decide the makeup needed to include in my trousseau. The recent post on IMBB for Suma was helpful in giving pointers. I am studying in the US and can go to India only for 15 days, so I have only 6 days before the wedding. I am also getting married in a relatively smaller city ( no lakme salons!) and have no time for trials in the other salons. I may try one or two but I am preparing myself for the possibility that I have to do my own makeup. I am confident in eye makeup but need good advice on face makeup. I am a dusky complexioned girl with acne prone skin. I am planning to go to MAC outlet here and pick up MAC prep and primer, foundation (Mac studio tech?), concealer (mac studio finish),powder/ compact (need help in this) and MAC fix and spray. I was wondering if you guys could help me out with clear set of instructions on the steps for making up my face! I see on online tutorials people use 2-3 different powders! Should I go shimmer powder as well as matte powder? How about blush/ bronzer- shimmer or matte? I am going to start practicing my looks in case I am unable to get a good MUA in my city! Please help!
