Stationery - Making vs buying

by RomanticGreenConfetti835 @ wedding planning discussion forums

Hi all

I've been looking at the cost of wedding stationery and unsurprisingly, much like everything else wedding related, it's astronomical for what I like.

i was wondering if anyone else is making / has made their own stationery and if it's worth it?  Can you save a significant amount of money taking into account that you have to buy all the supplies in advance? Is the time spent doing it worth the hassle?

im not particularly arty but I can manage card, lace and ribbon - what are your thoughts?

Father Of The bride Speech. HELP !!!

by ExpensiveGreenStationery948 @ Wedding Planning

Hi,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post so apologies up front.

My daughter is getting married next year and I am so happy for her and her fiancé. The problem is, since her engagement I have not been sleeping at all well as I am wakening up in the middle of the night thinking about the father of the bride speech I will have to make. I am absolutely petrified although I don't know why. I am a man in my early 60's but throughout my working life I never had to make speeches or I avoided them totally. Now I cannot avoid what will happen next year. Some/Most people will think I am just plain stupid but I can only say it is like a phobia some people have with snakes/spiders/flying etc, which I have no problem with. I have even been to a hypnotist for help but unfortunately that has not helped. I am at my wits end as I am supposed to be enjoying the run up to the wedding. Is there anybody out there that can offer me some help/advice to enable me to make even the shortest speech. There must be loads of dads out there feeling the same way.

Regards,

Father Of The Bride

Thank you gift for mum - Ideas?!

by XxAnonxX @ Wedding Planning

Hi,

I'm really struggling to think of a Thank You gift for my mum - she has been incredible with helping us plan our wedding and I really want to get her something to show how much we appreciate everything she has done.

Problem being that I don't want to do the usual flowers - we are already getting both sets of our parents a tree that symbolises love that can be planted in their gardens.  Chocolates don't feel special enough and she doesn't really wear jewellery so this would be wasted gift.

I'm trying to think of something that is a little bit different and that will be just for her, not a joint gift

Any ideas???!

Thanks

Has anyone ever done their makeup at macy's (in mac counter)?

by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

Did u like it? If u did, wat did u ask them to do? I'm asking cuz ima do my makeup there on friday for my 8th grade prom. So plz help? :)Has anyone ever done their makeup at macy's (in mac counter)?
I have gotten my makeup done at MAC many times!! I LOVED IT every time! But it you have to buy $75 worth of mac products so maybe you should wait until a high school prom or wedding or a different special time. But if you do decide to do it just tell who ever is doing your


make-up what your dress looks like or bring a picture of a celebrity's make-up you like. They will know what to do and you will look LOVELY!! Well I hope this helps and enjoy your 8th grade prom!!!!Has anyone ever done their makeup at macy's (in mac counter)?
I had mine done at Belk and I ended up looking like my grandmother; hideously ugly blue eyeshadow and lots of bright pink lipstick.





Best of luck to you though.








*I'd like to mention that the lady that did my makeup was a sixty year old black woman.
Quite honestly I'd save your money and just do your makeup yourself. You're only in 8th grade? If you go to the MAC counter they're going to put so much makeup on you, you'll look ridiculous.
im a professional makeup artist


i can answer this question and many more!

Selfish not to invite distant relatives and family friends?

by SunnyGreenHair729 @ Wedding Planning

Hi Everyone,

Last night I was speaking about wedding plans and ended up having an argument with my dad over who I invited to my wedding. I have always wanted to get married abroad in a small intimate wedding and my OH feels the same. A few years ago there was large fall out with one side of the family and I hardly know my other side so my OH and I agreed (he doesn't have extended family) that we just wanted to invite immediate family (parents and siblings) and very close friends. My dad has now said that it's selfish of me to do so and I have to invite family and the various family friends who have invited my parents to their children's weddings. When I said it was our day and I just wanted to have a day of fun with my friends my dad said it wasn't my day, it was the families and that chances are we wouldn't even be friends with the friends we invite to our wedding whist family is forever (except we don't speak to half of them!). My parents aren't contributing to the wedding and I'm very close to them so don't want to upset them but I have genuine anxiety now about having to face a room full of people I hardly know/hate me and the thought that the one day I've always dreamed of will not be anything I want is heartbreaking. I'm genuinely now considering just getting married in the registry office and not telling anyone. Am I in the wrong to not want these people there? Do I risk upsetting my parents by doing what I want? They say they will support my decisions but I know my dad will be 'disappointed' and end up swaying me out of guilt.

Puerto Rico and makeup counters?

by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

I am moving to Puerto Rico (the aguada/aguadilla area) and am an aspiring makeup artist. I would like to get a job at a makeup counter (you know, like in a mall). Do they have those nearby this area? Will they hire me (i'm 14)? 10 pts to best anwer. Thanks!Puerto Rico and makeup counters?
There is a mall in Aguadilla. I am not sure what dept stores it has, but u can check.





Aguadilla Shopping Mall (75 stores)


787-882-0014, 787-891-1570


Rt 2 Km 126.5.





There are other malls in PR too that have JC Penny's %26amp; Sears, etc. that have makeup counter. I am mot sure if they will hire you yet but in a few yrs I am sure it won't be a problem. Also if u can't get a job at a dept store makeup counter yet, then try working at a makeup counter in a walgreens or something.. it is not the same b/c u dont get to apply makeup but atleast u will learn the products %26amp; it will look good on ur resume or even work at a beauty supply store. GOODLK!!Puerto Rico and makeup counters?
Welcome to PR, I wish you the best. You should study first, finish high school. There is a lot of ';Colegios'; that offers kind of what you are interested in. You will have to wait until you are 16 to get a job. That is only 2 years ahead, get ready, study as much as you can, obtain the best grades, and have confidence in yourself. You would be what you want to be, but remember, prepare yourself with studies, so you became the best on whatever you want. Don't hurry yourself to work, this is your time to prepare yourself for the future.
first you need to have 18 years old to work here in puerto rico. some places are 16. but every Jc Penny, Sears and Macys here in puerto rico have these conunter.
I don't know about Aguada or Aguadilla but Arecibo has a Big mall with Sears and JC Penney and they have greta Make up counters.





Do a search about Sears and JC Penney and look for the nearest one ,,,,





Good Luck..
Well this is sort of a difficult thing to answer hon because I don't like dissapointing anyone. I'm not aware of any department stores in that area, however that does not mean there are none, I just could not find any. There may very well be some. There must be beauty salons and spas you could look into as well.





Here's the problem tho. It would be very difficult for you to find a job in PR, period. You have your age going against you, 14 might just be too young, legaly. Also, PR is going through some very difficult economic times right now and jobs are scarce. People with college degrees having to take jobs at fast food places. If you were to find a job opening, you'll be competing against people who likely have at the very least finished high school, possibly have a college education, can drive, have years of work experience and have no legal restrictions to be employed based on their age.





On the bright side, there is something you can do to further your dream. You can go to any of these places or beauty salons or spas and ask if they are willing to consider giving you an internship you can attend after school. You can gain precious experience and learn from people who are experts while at the same time you continue your education and by the time you finish high school you can decide if you love it enough to continue your education even further in the field to pursue your dream. Say you did that and graduated, you would already have job experience and an education to back you up and become a success.


I wish you the best.
sweety


u are only 14.


good luck though.
Not all malls/stores in PR has needs for a makeup artist, someone able to sale (talk well, good at math/money handling, good attitude) will do for most stores that carry make up merchandise.





Maybe big department stores like JC Penny, Sears, or Macy's would be interested in a makeup artist. Form Aguadilla maybe you will have to travel to the Mayaguez Mall. Maybe you will find more opportunities at a beauty saloon doing manicure and hair care.





If under 16 you will need your parents permission to get a job.

    Do MAC makeup counters do make-up by appointments?

    by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

    If so, how much do they cost?Do MAC makeup counters do make-up by appointments?
    I got my makeup done by MAC for an event very recently. And yes, I made an appointment for it in advance. At my local MAC counter, you have to make a five item purchace in order for them to do your make-up. The products you buy is the only thing you pay for, and actual makeover comes free with it.





    Got to your MAC counter and find out whether you have to buy something or just pay for the makeover. I'm sure it's different in different places.Do MAC makeup counters do make-up by appointments?
    Just walk in, plan to buy $40 worth of product and let them do a makeover.
    I'm not sure, but get an appointment with a gay guy. They're the best at makeup.
    Yes they do, and in Canada it costs 45 dollars. So, in the U.S, i'm guessing about 35-40. You also usually get a free full sized product(I got free mascara)
    Yeah they do. Not sure how much they cost.


    You could either just ask for them to do a make-over and test products on you and then maybe buy a few of the products they used. Alternativly i think you can book in for a professional make-over.


    Check thier website, they might have some info x

  • At the cosmetic counter at Saks, how do they cln their makeup tools? do they? should i be worried? went rcntly

    by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

    most places are required to use disposable applicators, and sharpen pencils every time they use them it helps to keep down germs. i don't think there are any cases of someone catching something from a place that applied their makeup. if someone had something obvious i think that the people would tell them no I can't work on you. I have always cleaned my brushes with witch hazel it cleans them well and does not dry out the bristles.At the cosmetic counter at Saks, how do they cln their makeup tools? do they? should i be worried? went rcntly

    Makeup counters at department stores?

    by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

    Is it free?


    Is it unsanitary since everyone uses the same makeup or is it clean somehow?


    Whats your experince with it?Makeup counters at department stores?
    Most of the time it is free, just ask.


    It should be sanitary because the usually use disposable applicators and once they touch the makeup then touch your face they are supposed to get a new applicator.


    I would'nt let them use eyeliner or mascara unless they use disposable applicators that is the only really unsanitary thing, you can get pink eye or other infections.Makeup counters at department stores?
    oh no! 6 people getting sick a year from make-up counters? did you know that you can get sick from *gasp* being near other people?





    yes, if you are careful and you go to an actual department store or sephora or something, then you have a .00001% chance of getting sick.
    It is free, I usually have my face done at Macy*s, JCPenney, or the like and they do hope you'll buy something but you don't have to (because they make commission). When they use products like lipsticks, stick foundations, etc. they wipe it off before and after each use, so they try to keep as sanitary as possible. They also use cotton balls, disposable sponges and q-tips instead of brushes in most cases.
    The stuff they have out on the counters is free for you to try on. They are supposed to have q-tips, cotton pads, disposable mascara brushes, etc. for you to try the items on with. I live at the Benefit counter, and the girls there are always extremely sanitary with the makeup that is out.
    It is safe if you go to a reputable store like Nordstroms or something.
    I think it is free but they expect you to buy something if they put make up on you. they use different disposable applicators on each person at least what i have seen them do. Also I have seen the people spray the make up with i am guessing soapy water maybe. But if you tell them you just want to try a new look usually they won't expect you to buy something. i just wouldn't ask them to try it all the time.
    The following is a widespread occurrence; reported in the news at least 1/2 dozen times each year.





    http://www.accommodatingly.com/?p=434





    This IS the best answer
    http://www.in-brands.com/Simplified/Prod鈥?/a>
    I know that some places will give you a free makeover if you purchase a certain cost worth of cosmetics from them, while other places will just do it free.


    And it can be unsanitary, but almost all places will make sure its not. They disinfect the brushes, which is fine.


    I went with my friend once and 1. the lady was a little rude 2. she had to purchase 50.00 worth of cosmetics in order to get her makeup done and 3. the end job was fine, but we were there for almost 45 minutes because the lady kept moving her attention elsewhere, and no , it wasn't busy.


    If you are interested in a new look, go for it.


    They can really make your face pop!

    by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

    When there are some other people there.But just a few peopleBest time to visit makeup counters at department stores?
    I advise u 2 go early preferbaly when its only bin open half and hour as no one else will be in the shop n none of the make up will have bin used yet!Best time to visit makeup counters at department stores?
    Try at about 10 or 11... it's not too early, but it's early enough that the sales people won't be like ';oh god, it's another one';. Also try to be nice to them so they will give you (relatively) honest advice and the good makeup.
    what? you have to set appointments there now?
    Early on in the day, and during the week. You may also be able to set an actual appointment with some of them.
    When you have plenty of time to have your questions answered and to try new things.
    Maybe around 11am? Just go when you see a lot of salespeople around there.

    Depends on how much the makeover is...I would stick to 15-20% of the total cost. If its free, then I would tip $10-15. You don't have to tip, but if the makeover is free, then the expectation is that you puchase at least one makeup item.Getting makeup done at Nars counter- how much tip for artist is appropriate?
    NO!!! YOU DON'T TIP THEM!!! you buy them makeup... the sale goes for them... and it's probably commission or i don't know... but DON'T TIP THEM!!! you are buying makeup... gosh i don't know how much i can stress this to you... i'm not being rude/cheap... but you don't tip the people...
    You shouldn't be tipping the makeup artist, they are already making $14 an hour! If they do your whole face, it's customary that you're not just doing it to buy a lip liner. You should plan to BUY a couple things three at least. Even if they charge a fee for a makeover, Don't tip them! They get commision, I don't care if it's NYC, everyone wants a friggin tip these days. If they are collecting tips, alert management because it just wrong
    Depends on how many products you buy from all the makeup she uses on you. If you only buy the lip gloss give her ten bucks. If you buy the foundation with the concealer, liquid eyeliner, and bronzer then tip her more.

    Selfish not to invite distant relatives and family friends?

    by SunnyGreenHair729 @ wedding planning discussion forums

    Hi Everyone,

    Last night I was speaking about wedding plans and ended up having an argument with my dad over who I invited to my wedding. I have always wanted to get married abroad in a small intimate wedding and my OH feels the same. A few years ago there was large fall out with one side of the family and I hardly know my other side so my OH and I agreed (he doesn't have extended family) that we just wanted to invite immediate family (parents and siblings) and very close friends. My dad has now said that it's selfish of me to do so and I have to invite family and the various family friends who have invited my parents to their children's weddings. When I said it was our day and I just wanted to have a day of fun with my friends my dad said it wasn't my day, it was the families and that chances are we wouldn't even be friends with the friends we invite to our wedding whist family is forever (except we don't speak to half of them!). My parents aren't contributing to the wedding and I'm very close to them so don't want to upset them but I have genuine anxiety now about having to face a room full of people I hardly know/hate me and the thought that the one day I've always dreamed of will not be anything I want is heartbreaking. I'm genuinely now considering just getting married in the registry office and not telling anyone. Am I in the wrong to not want these people there? Do I risk upsetting my parents by doing what I want? They say they will support my decisions but I know my dad will be 'disappointed' and end up swaying me out of guilt.

    How long??

    by HappyOrangeDecor917 @ wedding planning discussion forums

    Hello everyone,

    This is my first post so please be gentle with me and excuse me if I have posted this in the wrong place!

     I would like to ask how long you had been with your partner before you were engaged?

     A little background…

     In all fairness I should not be on this forum as I am not planning a wedding as I am not engaged! I have been with my partner for nearly 5 years and I made it clear to him when we first started going out that I would like marriage and children in the future. He agreed and confirm that was his desire for the future also. However, nearly 5 years later nothing! About a year and a half ago we had a proper conversation again about it and he confirmed that marriage was still one of his core values and he saw himself doing the whole marriage and kids with me.

     I appreciate there is no set rule as each couple is different, therefore I would like to know how long you with your fiancé(e) before you were engaged? Was it a surprise? Had it been discussed previously? etc

     I am just a little frustrated that it hasn’t happened yet and I am starting to doubt his feelings for me and whether his all talk and no action.

    These are feelings I have kept to myself as I don’t want him to feel I am nagging or pressuring him.  

    What would you do in my position? (if anything)

    I would appreciate any advice that could be given

     Thank you

    Father Of The bride Speech. HELP !!!

    by ExpensiveGreenStationery948 @ Wedding Planning

    Hi,

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post so apologies up front.

    My daughter is getting married next year and I am so happy for her and her fiancé. The problem is, since her engagement I have not been sleeping at all well as I am wakening up in the middle of the night thinking about the father of the bride speech I will have to make. I am absolutely petrified although I don't know why. I am a man in my early 60's but throughout my working life I never had to make speeches or I avoided them totally. Now I cannot avoid what will happen next year. Some/Most people will think I am just plain stupid but I can only say it is like a phobia some people have with snakes/spiders/flying etc, which I have no problem with. I have even been to a hypnotist for help but unfortunately that has not helped. I am at my wits end as I am supposed to be enjoying the run up to the wedding. Is there anybody out there that can offer me some help/advice to enable me to make even the shortest speech. There must be loads of dads out there feeling the same way.

    Regards,

    Father Of The Bride

    Makeup done at MAC counter??

    by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

    so i'm planning on going to the mac counter and buying at least a 100 dollars worth of products and i heard that you get a free makeover with the purchase of 40 dollars worth of products or something like that.


    i was just wondering what happens when you get your makeup done there(sorry if that sounds stupid, i've never had my makeup done at a counter before lol).


    should i wear no makeup that day?


    or do they give you a cleanser to take your makeup off or what?


    do they use the products that you buy or do they demonstrate them on you first to try and sell them to you?








    thank you so much for any answers!:)Makeup done at MAC counter??
    At the mac near me, that deal isnt all the time..only during special seasons (prom,wedding) usually you have to pay 50 dollars and they give you a free mascara. to get ur makeup done but, thats just at my local mac. and when you get your full face done, you make an appointment and they will tell you to come with a clean face..they will do everything else..Moisturize, concealer, foundation, blush, eyeshadow whatever you'd like. If you dont make an appointment and you just want to buy stuff they will probably only show you how to apply it like a sample..they wont do your whole face. hope that helpedMakeup done at MAC counter??
    There shouldn't be a minimum purchase for good service! Just call ahead and say your looking for a ';new look.'; They should set up a time slot and have you come in! It's best if you don't wear make up, but if you do they will be able to remove it. Also, they have samples of just about every item available so no, you don't have to buy to try... just buy what you like!

    Is it just me or do you think girls at the MAC counter wear too much makeup?

    by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

    In my opinion I think maybe 25 percent of the mac girls look good with it, but 75 percent of the mac girls just look like they have too much makeup on. One girl ..I looked at her eyebrows up close and the tail part of her eyebrows was gone..and she painted her eyebrows thicker then they were lol..I thought how phoney. .My natural eyebrows look better up close then hers. Just seems they wear so much eyeliner and too much eyeshadow ...so dark n heavy looking. It looks like they take an hour putting on their makeup everyday. Anybody agree or disagree.Is it just me or do you think girls at the MAC counter wear too much makeup?
    Well, I guess it's appropriate for where she works.Is it just me or do you think girls at the MAC counter wear too much makeup?
    I disagree. It's a personal choice.


    They're doing it to themselves, That's how they want to look.


    Not to mention, it is their JOB!


    Who are you to criticize them, anyway?


    And comparing yourself to them? That's just ridiculous!


    Not to mention, would you go around with no eyebrows? I doubt it. She has to do something doesn't she?


    Makeup is fun and transforming, so what if they want to try out new looks everyday. It's on them anyway, what do you really care?


    Are you actually going to go up to them and say any of this? Didn't think so. I suggest you quit talking bad about people you don't even know and take a closer look in the mirror.
    like others have said, they are there to sell the makeup and show off their skill as a makeup artist, which is why they usually go over the top with what they wear. While it sometimes does look a bit silly it's part of the job.
    those girls may have to much makeup on, but they are selling their products.


    its spossed to make girls think that they can look like that too.


    it takes alot of talent to make your makeup look like that.
    yeah, i agree. i heard that is part of the job description though. they have to advertise their products, no matter how silly it looks.
    i agree. it looks like they took every shade of cosmetic they have and somehow applied it to their face





    zombie- MAC as in the makeup....
    My bet is they are trying to sell the makeup, so they advertise it as much as possible.
    They are supposed to. They put their makeup on to the extreme to show their skill and the product
    They gotta do what they gotta do! lol =]








    It does look silly!
    omGG..Didto.....Yeah they were so much..that is kind of is disturbing.....haha..but yeah they do wear waaayyy ...to much makeup....=)
    Oh my gawsh! totally babe. Like what is the dealio?
    you mean the MAC as in APPLE? computer?.....

    Can i approach makeup counters for prom makeup without making an appointment?

    by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

    i thought i could do my own makeup for prom. but since experimenting, i realize i look like a clown in my own hands. so i decided i should find professional help, but its seems to late to make an appointment now and i dont know where to go for a makeover. can i just make a last minute appearance at any makeup counter in town and request for a makeover?Can i approach makeup counters for prom makeup without making an appointment?
    Go to the MAC store or Macy's (they have a MAC counter). The girls charge $40 and it's worth it. MAC products are wonderful and they last long and PROM is the one time you want to look flawless. I know that if you go to the MAC counter without making an appointment, they will put make up on you if they know they are going to make a ';good'; sale, especially at this time of year. You can also try Sephora. And if all else fails, you should ask an adult that you think does good make up on themselves. Or take your time..lay out all your make up that you want to use and start slowly. The lighter the touch the better the outcome. Good Luck and Have fun on PROM.Can i approach makeup counters for prom makeup without making an appointment?
    Go to the Body Shop - they do free make overs and their stuff is really nice. You may want to buy something small though for their trouble (like the lip gloss they put on you b/c you will need to re-apply it later anyway).
    umm call 2 days in advanced or go to a mall, they will always feel happy to do it!!! hope i helped :)


    gobble gobble


    happy thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!!


    try mac!!!!!!!!!


    they refuse say you will give a big tip!
    u should just be able to go to the mall and hit up a counter and ask questions for help and adivice. most women would love to help. i'm sure some would love to smug u off but ignore them. they'd probably make u look like u came out the 80's anyway.... since ur doing prom keep it light and neutral

    Getting makeup done at the clinique counter?

    by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

    I booked an appointment at clinique for the free product test... I booked it on prom day so i dont have to get it professionally done for prom..


    DID ANY OF YOU GO TO ONE OF THESE?


    DO THEY ACTUALLY PUT FULL MAKEUP ON YOUR WHOLE FACE ?? OR JUST HALF ??BECAUSE IM GOING TO PROM AFTER AND I DONT WANT TO LOOK WEIRD.





    LIKE: FOUNDATION, POWDER, BLUSH, EYESHADOW??Getting makeup done at the clinique counter?
    Yeah they would do it. Some would try to do half of your face and ask you to do the other half, but if you refuse, they'll just do your whole face. They work on commission after all, and want to please you. They may ask you to buy a lip gloss they used on you or an eyeliner. It depends from counter to counter. One of the times I went to a clinique makeup counter requesting a makeover, the woman said I will have to buy everything from foundation to eyeshadow save the 3-step...I just said I am not interested and walked away.Getting makeup done at the clinique counter?
    I got my prom makeup done at a Clinique counter in Carson Pierre Scott. Yes, they do everything! They cleaned my face, applied moisturizer, applied foundation, powder, blush, everything. I even took a picture of my dress so that they could match the eyeshadow and they also apply eyeliner along with mascara (they ask you first though). I also got some free samples, holler!
    Rest assured, they WILL NOT only do half your face. I don't know where that myth arose from, maybe that's how it was done in the 80's, but they do your entire face, whatever you want done. Be specific in your requests. And please buy something afterwards, those women work on commission. If you wouldn't walk into a salon and try to get a free haircut, then don't walk in there and try to get a ';free'; makeover.
    yeah they'll do anything you ask for





    but i would do that if i were you on the DAY OF


    because i went to get a free trial once (a few months b4 grad) and they lady made me look like a friggen clown


    you don't wana not like it and then have to go to prom looking really bad...

    Does macys makeup counters give away samples?

    by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

    every company/counter is different at macys/nordstroms. some are more generous, some are super stingy, so you might not get a good sampling of the different brands.


    Sephora has all the same brands but they give away samples like its nothing!Does macys makeup counters give away samples?

    you never have to buy makeup for a consultation, however its considered polite to purchase at least one item that they used on you during your consultation. but you dont have to. i always say that im coming back later to get something.

    How long??

    by HappyOrangeDecor917 @ Wedding Planning

    Hello everyone,

    This is my first post so please be gentle with me and excuse me if I have posted this in the wrong place!

     I would like to ask how long you had been with your partner before you were engaged?

     A little background…

     In all fairness I should not be on this forum as I am not planning a wedding as I am not engaged! I have been with my partner for nearly 5 years and I made it clear to him when we first started going out that I would like marriage and children in the future. He agreed and confirm that was his desire for the future also. However, nearly 5 years later nothing! About a year and a half ago we had a proper conversation again about it and he confirmed that marriage was still one of his core values and he saw himself doing the whole marriage and kids with me.

     I appreciate there is no set rule as each couple is different, therefore I would like to know how long you with your fiancé(e) before you were engaged? Was it a surprise? Had it been discussed previously? etc

     I am just a little frustrated that it hasn’t happened yet and I am starting to doubt his feelings for me and whether his all talk and no action.

    These are feelings I have kept to myself as I don’t want him to feel I am nagging or pressuring him.  

    What would you do in my position? (if anything)

    I would appreciate any advice that could be given

     Thank you

    Looking for suggestions for a scenic venue for just the three of us please! Can't be dealing with the stress and cost of planning a big wedding so looking to do a flit with just my other half and our toddler. Places that we are keen on are Lake District in Cumbria and Naples, Tuscany etc in Italy. Tried and tested comments would be amazing whether that's as a bride/groom or guest!

    Makeup ? I'm getting headshots. Is it cheaper 2 get makeup at the mall w/ help from counter lady or walgreens?

    by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

    I'm a guy and I have bags and stuff under my eyes and i know my friend can photoshop them out, but he says i should get makeup b/c it'll be easier. I also looked at my first headshots from years ago and i just saw micro pimples on my forehead (which isn't good looking back on it) I haven't a clue about makeup (i'm a guy) but i know i want that powdery look. Suggestions? what's that jessica alba commercial where you can mix your own color? or is there a place where i can get tv makeup powder like the news people use i've seen some of the guys with that and it looks good. very 80s rock band like.





    all help (not just one sentence pleassssee) greatly appreciated!!!!





    oh and what will the counterlady do? i know they might help give you a makeup for free but i gotta get several takes in different days I can't just go back to them and do it over and over for free without buying. so if this is better than say walgreens then how much am i gonna pay??? roughly? $10 $5? ....Makeup ? I'm getting headshots. Is it cheaper 2 get makeup at the mall w/ help from counter lady or walgreens?
    If you can't find this palette stuff and if you don't know how to apply the stuff, then go to lancome or Bobby Mac or Este Lauder and tell them you want some ideas on makeup. Watch them carefully, as they will give you a complete makeover. Tell them about your problem with the dark circles or bags, ask them what they have for this. As they put each item on your face, ask them what it is and what color it is and how much it is. After they have started, tell them what you are doing, tell them about the ';head shots';, they will be excited to be a part of this. Just buy one or two things. Have them make a list of what they used... sometimes they keep a chart of what they put on you for future reference. Tell them you will be back tomorrow. It really is worth it to buy good makeup, not the stuff from Walgreens. Your makeup will make a big difference and the Walgreen's lady can not help you as much as the counter person at the department store. Good make up in your business is important. Start now to invest in it. You are worth it. If you go back to them for 2 or 3 days in a row, you will be better prepared to do your own makeup... tell the girl this is your goal. Makeup ? I'm getting headshots. Is it cheaper 2 get makeup at the mall w/ help from counter lady or walgreens?
    i say get it professionally done. you'll look and feel better. you'll now how to do it on those different days. Sure you might feel weird sitting there getting made over, but who cares? Buy, or figure out what she used, and see if you cant get it at Walgreens, target, walmart, etc. If you can't find it, go back and get it. Sure it'll be a little more expensive, but would you rather look cheap or professional? The less photoshop the better honey. :) Hope this helped some.
    if your trying to go to a department store like jc pennys or anything of that sort your going to be paying ALOT more then 5-10 dollars. ur ranging anywhere from 20 and up foir the good stuff.





    what the counter lady will do is help you find something close to ur skin tone and show u some ideas and do urmake up for u but like u said itll only last u the day.





    so my advice to save you time and money





    go to the department store and see what the lady says bout ur skin tone like what would be better like mouse cover up or powder or lquid. and then ask her to show you how to put it on and what ';color'; matches ur skin tone best





    and then go to walgreens or something and then pick out the color she reccomended amd youll already know how to apply it

    Makeup counters at macy's?

    by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

    Ok so how much would it cost to get makeup applyed by one of the ppl at the makeup counters at macy's?





    I heard it's free and i also heard you have to buy $50+ worth of makeup...so if I go to m.a.c and just buy the prep+prime could I get my face done?Makeup counters at macy's?
    I went to Macy's before my high school graduation and the women did it for free. I didn't have to buy any makeup after either. I guess it depends where you live though. Makeup counters at macy's?
    WELL I GO ALL THE TIME FOR MAC APPLY.


    IT MAY BE FREE;; DEPENDS ON WHERE YOU LIVE;, OR IF THERES SOME COME OF SPECIAL.


    BUT USUALLY IT DEPENDS WUT U GET.. I GET A FULL FACE AND I PAY $35


    ...


    AND I HAVE MOST OF THEIR MAKEUP SHADOWS..


    BUT.. GO AHEAD TO A MACYS AND CHECK IT OUT
    Usually Clinique and stuff will do it for free if its not for an event, but it is for an event you have to buy a certain amount of products.
    Victoria's secret also does it but they may not do it in ur area. I live in NYC.
    Call and ask...I don't get why people put questions like this on here, it's so simple for you to find out by calling.

    How long does MAC makeup 'last' when you get it done at the Macy*s counter?

    by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

    I have a wedding that starts at 3 p.m. but am getting my makeup at the Macy*s counter done at 12 p.m [After that I'm getting my hair done, then going straight to the wedding]. The wedding will probably last until 3 a.m. Basically, I need my makeup to last 15 hours! Will my makeup stay put for that long? I'm choosing MAC because I think it'll stay on the longest, will it?!





    Also, how long does it take? I'm doing the whole 'flawless skin, smokey eye/doe eye with false lashes, nude lips' look. How long will that take?How long does MAC makeup 'last' when you get it done at the Macy*s counter?
    MAC is good makeup ....I am not a fan of their foundations ...but love their eye products. I am not sure any makeup will stand up for 15 hours without at least some touch up ....powder, lips ..etc., I would suggest you tell them at the counter how long you need this to last and maybe they can offer some samples of things or apply a little bit heaveir product .....but I would take some things in a bag for touch ups for that length of time ..... I have heard that MAC has heavy foundations and causes alot of people breakouts but it is suppose to be great stage makeup and great for photographs ..If I were you talk to the ladies at the MAC counter ...they will know what you will need touched up ....





    Hope this was helpful ~~~


    Good Luck ~~~How long does MAC makeup 'last' when you get it done at the Macy*s counter?
    Thank you for your input. I didn't end up going to MAC...Lancome instead. But I did specify that I needed my makeup to last a while [turns out I totally miscalculated the hours I'd be needing it to stay on]...and they put a special foundation on me. I looked fab. the entire night! Report Abuse

    i love mac, but its all i use. darker colors stay on longer OR you can ask them to use a primer which will help it stay SUPER long.. also buy some things to touch up with. thats what i do... you will have to touch up all makeup no matter what the brand. at least powder and lipstick, maybe a touch of eye shadow
    ah to be honest , it just depends on whos doing your makeup.......some of em put layers of makeup on and others put a slim amount on, im guessing if you want it to last fifteen hours, youre gonna want someone who aint skimpy with the makeup...................maybe keep a powder er somethin in your bag for touchups
    Make sure they put on foundation primer and eyeshadow primer before applying the real makeup. The primers help to keep your makeup last longer.
    Nars is better than Mac. I'm not saying Mac sucks, I love Mac. But, Nars is better!!
    Its not smart to get your makeup done before your hair.

    Stationery - Making vs buying

    by RomanticGreenConfetti835 @ Wedding Planning

    Hi all

    I've been looking at the cost of wedding stationery and unsurprisingly, much like everything else wedding related, it's astronomical for what I like.

    i was wondering if anyone else is making / has made their own stationery and if it's worth it?  Can you save a significant amount of money taking into account that you have to buy all the supplies in advance? Is the time spent doing it worth the hassle?

    im not particularly arty but I can manage card, lace and ribbon - what are your thoughts?

    Getting makeup done at the clinique counter?

    by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

    So i need a new foundation and i was thinking of getting one from clinique but im not sure if i'd like the one i was thinking of [the new superfit makeup] so i wanted to go to Macy's and have them try it on me before i buy it. So i was wondering if i need to make an appointment before i go? Or can i just get there and ask to put some one me? And also should i remove my makeup before i go? Or would they take it off or what. And while im there should i have them do eye makeup too since im there? Any advice or tips would be helpful :]


    thank youGetting makeup done at the clinique counter?
    Just walk in and say you are looking for foundation.


    They will automatically test it on you! and they will take any makeup off so you can wear foundation. Yes you can wear eye make up. It isn't technically a make over. They are only going to test in a small portion of your face.Getting makeup done at the clinique counter?
    You don't need an appointment. Tell them you need a new foundation and they will help you find one.
    OMG...





    I just did that two days ago and end up buying more!!





    I just walked into Macys and the MA was glad to help me. I have the Superfit as well in Golden Beige and I love it.It is EXACTLY my skin tone. I use to use MAC and I will never use MAC foundations again!! I ended up also buying a concealer, and the sheer matte pressed powder!! Clinique makeup is very light and does not feel heavy at all!! Its better if you go without makeup but if you need to where some, they will give you something to take it off with. They will be more than welcome to do your eye makeup, believe me!!





    I suggest asking for a sample first so you can test it out on your own and if you like come back and get it. But I loved it so I just bought it. There high impact mascara is really good too1

    Do i have to pay to get my makeup done at a M.A.C counter or pay a tip??

    by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

    if you buy $30.00 worth of M.A.C makeup then you get a free makeover. I asked the lady that same question at the M.A.C. counter, and that is what she told me. if you DO NOT buy at least $30.00 of M.A.C makeup then YES you DO have to pay. Even if you do not have to tip them.... i would suggest that you do because it would be rude if you didn't. I hope this helped =)Do i have to pay to get my makeup done at a M.A.C counter or pay a tip??
    i had to pay. i just learned how to properly use makeup, i bought over $50 of M.A.C. cosmetics.Do i have to pay to get my makeup done at a M.A.C counter or pay a tip??
    Usually you have to buy some products. For Belks you have to buy two products from the counter you get it done at. Just call them and see what they say.
    no and NO there paid already not on commission so ask for a free one, no tipping needed
    I DO NOT KNOW WHAT M.A.C. IS BUT ALWAYS LEAVE A TIP. YOU WILL BE REMEMBERED AND GET V.I.P. TREATMENT.
    If you buy product (I dont know what country you're in...) they will usually do your make up for you.


    If it's just a consultation, dont expect them to do full face makeup.


    If I can remember... I had to buy two products, then they did my makeup.


    So realistically, you don't have to pay anything, as long as you buy the products.
    back when i went to prom it was 35 dollars i think or 35 worth of product. something like that!
    #1 the only mac artists that make commission work at Nordstrom's, the rest work on an hourly rate.


    #2 It depends if you go to a free-standing MAC store or a department store. Free-standing MAC stores charge a fee for applications-$50 for an application and $90 for a lesson. Department stores will sometimes charge a minimum purchase, so you will have to commit to buy some products to get your makeup done. In a free-standing store you get your makeup done in a back room and the artist gives you 100% of their attention. At department stores the artist will have to step away and help other customers. That is the difference in price! No tip required. They are not a salon, they sell makeup so the best tip is always to buy:)

    Why do women on cosmetics counters wear so much makeup?

    by noreply@blogger.com (8) @ makeup counter

    Surely makeup should be subtle and natural, but most of the time these women wear a mask of over-the-top makeup. It doesn't inspire me to buy anything!Why do women on cosmetics counters wear so much makeup?
    not everyone can be a natural beauty... I never wear natural looking makeup always dramatic... it's who I am... besides why bother with make up if you want to be natural?... I think the answer is, make up is used to enhance who you are and how you want to be seen


    if you shop at MAC or Sephora pay attention to the clerks... they have something for everyone and people tend to gravitate to people with similar senses of style... I personally do not ask for beauty advice from anyone who draws on their eyebrows (unless it's a guy in drag) or who wears natural make up... they don't share my aestheticWhy do women on cosmetics counters wear so much makeup?
    Just showing customers the possibilities one can do with make up.
    Hi Shona - I suppose it takes quite a lot of make up to cover a patronising person with a big ego. I never buy make up from those counters, I'd rather help myself from the shelf. Glad I'm not the only one who has such nasty thoughts. Hahaha.
    they have to look like a good advert for their business if someone who was pale, spotty, and looked like they hadnt slept for a week was behind the counter psychologically customers would start to think that the make up was crap so the person wasnt wearing it and therefore not buy it themselves!





    f
    because they have no self cofidance and are stupid enough to believe it disguises them =P
    Well thats because... there have to show off the products there selling..
    yeah and why do they always grab ur wives and girl friends and say sorry madam but i could help but notice....if i was a woman i would have punch one for says i had open poors...what ever that means...they all look like expolision in a pint factory...wash it off and start again....';less is more';..lol
    I agree with that too.
    loads of make up is scary, i recently had an 8 month relationship with someone who used a lot of makeup and was stunningly attractive. I fell in love with that person. Then I saw her for the first time with no makeup and it was a horror story. She looked so different, from a 10 to a 1. In the end it disturbed me so much I had to end the relationship. From now on I will only date women that are attractive without make up
    They have to cover up their flaws and 'advertise' their make-up on their faces as well.Anyway.it's free to use the makeup for them,might as well use more,right? :p
    Im same has you do not like alot of make up.They look like dolls.Have no idea why they slap so much on.
    i have always wondered this too. they look a bit like tangerines gone wrong lol. think its cos they are in the makeup all day and so try out bits all the time
    They get free samples. I agree with you about the mask effect. Don't like it all. They are often old biddies trying to look young
    of course


    2 be more beautiful than the women who will buy a makeup from her ..right?!!!!
    Advertising
    because we like to look plastic !
    will you buy cosmetics from a women who don't wear makeup?
    The actual reason is that each company tells its make-up girls that they have to wear a certain amount of their products a day. For example a friend who used to work for Clinique was told she had to wear a minimum of 10 Clinique products to work each day. This could inlude Clinique skin care and perfume but had to also be mainly made up of make up products.





    So, to be told that you have to wear at least 10 products, you can probably understand why some of these make up girls end up looking like Coco the Clown
    Because most of them are ugly mooses and need to cover up.
    Its probably because of the lights, it makes them think they need more as the light 'bleaches the colour out of your face' so rumour has it, so they apply lots - a bit like stage makeup. They could just be advertising their products but I guess you dont really need to see all of them at once!
    to fend off bitchy customers..eheh..or maybe they hate their employers for a low pay and to get even with them they wear so much make-up that buyers would fear on using the products on them
    Sorry
    Don't ever go to one for a make over. You've been tangoed!!
    they want to show off the product they are trying to sell however some end up putting on the WHOLE range!

    Thank you gift for mum - Ideas?!

    by XxAnonxX @ Wedding Planning

    Hi,

    I'm really struggling to think of a Thank You gift for my mum - she has been incredible with helping us plan our wedding and I really want to get her something to show how much we appreciate everything she has done.

    Problem being that I don't want to do the usual flowers - we are already getting both sets of our parents a tree that symbolises love that can be planted in their gardens.  Chocolates don't feel special enough and she doesn't really wear jewellery so this would be wasted gift.

    I'm trying to think of something that is a little bit different and that will be just for her, not a joint gift

    Any ideas???!

    Thanks
