Check out today's makeup tip from Elke Von Freudenberg - this is especially important if you're having a makeup artist do your wedding day makeup. And if you missed my introduction to Elke last week, you can catch up here.

A lot of time and detail went into choosing your dress, ring, flowers, and even your hairstyle. Don't let your makeup take a back seat. Take the time to go through magazines and pull out makeup styles that you really like, even tear out the ones you really hate. 

It could be how a certain feature is played up, or that great lipstick color, or how the skin glows, or even how they used way too much eyeliner. All this is easy to say and show to a makeup artist, like me, with pictures. 

It helps tremendously to show your desires by pictures rather than endlessly describing it. This helps me immensely in seeing what you like and don't like. Remember, our mental ideas of pink lipstick could be completely different. There is a lot of truth in the adage that says "a picture is worth a thousand words". It really gives me a lot more information with a visual sense.
