Laura Mercier Faux Lashes

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

Laura MercierOne of my brides introduced me to these a few weeks ago.  I applied them with no hassles and they looked really beautiful, especially in the photo I snapped afterward.  They’re $18 and worth every cent.  If you are going to go the false lashes route, invest in some nice ones.  You can re-use them, and there is enough glue for a few applications.  I still stand by my preference for individual mini lashes, but I was pleasantly surprised by how  good these looked!

With the holiday season fast approaching, this might be something for a debutante to consider adding to her makeup routine for the night of the ball.

Makeup Forever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Pencil, $17 at Sephora

A waterproof, extremely long-wearing lip liner.

Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner Pencil Rosewood. $17 at Sephora

Changing the color you line your lips with will instantly update your look. If you’ve been wearing those amazing brights this summer, change your lip pencil to a darker hue and work it into the brighter lipstick to give it a darker or dirtier cast — this will  mute it and make it fall-wearable.

I just found some brilliant Makeup Forever waterproof lip liners at Sephora.  They’re worth a try, and stay on all day,  and help you have a worry free wedding day.  $17

Or, try Clinique Quickliner for Lips in Crushed Berry or Bamboo, $14.

Click here to watch a very helpful video from top NYC photographer Sardi Klein:

Expert Tips for Looking Good in Photos – DailyCandy.

Here’s what Daily Candy has to say…

“Shiny forehead, freak grimace, bulging eyes — you’ve got an uncanny ability to ruin a photo. And thanks to Facebook tagging, the entire world can witness your awkward mugging until the end of time.

You could avoid cameras altogether. Or you could just watch today’s video, with its simple tips for looking great in pictures.

Our expert, Sardi Klein, longtime NYC photographer and professor at The New School and Pratt, has seen it all, from mothers of the bride who peer skyward to avoid double chins to businessmen whose phony smiles turn head shots into mug shots.

Follow her advice, and the next time someone tags you in a photo, you might just share instead of hide.”

Not to say they don’t look cute in this picture, because they do.  However, let’s be honest; would you pay your justifiably expensive wedding photographer for a picture of you looking this way?
