Hello Everyone, I am looking for some make-up advise, we, my husband & I are attending the wedding of a friend, with the triple digit heat here, 108 today, 106 tomorrow which happens to be the event day.
I have no plans to wear Carol (my wig), I have gone ah natural before to dinner but this is my first big event going ah natural. I experimented this afternoon with makeup which I hope does not melt off, oh I feel for the bride, the thought of a gown in this heat, ug.
Back to subject matter, I thought about using a Bronzier, very light.
I welcome any & all suggestions for helping my beanie top look her best.

Thanks

Pam

Make-up may come off on a white dress while hugging the bride...or it might melt on you. How about a light, thin, gauzy scarf? You also might not want all the attention on you at your friend's event, especially if you have not done this before with her friends and family.

Tallgirl, thank you, what is the one thing we all do at a wedding, we hug the bride, her gown is so lovely, I would never want to do anything that would ruin it.
I like the gauzy scarf idea & very much appreciate the advise.
Light gauzy scarf, it sounds wonderful & cool but can I get away with that at a formal wedding?
I might have a silk one that might work,silk just seems so hot', I just remembered something I saw a great video that Mary did regarding how to tie a scarf, I'll look at that again. I may come up with something else.
Thanks again Tallgirl.

Pam - in that sort of heat, I'd just put on some nice earrings and go au natural. I went bald for the first time at a big event at a wedding a year ago, and nobody said anything. I was cooler than most of the people!

Tonight I was out in a crowded restaurant on a hot, humid night, and people were fanning themselves. I wiped my bald head off with a paper napkin a couple of times. I can't imagine having anything on it when it's this warm. But, if you want to try it, the way I tie scarves, as shown in the video, will work with any square scarf of the right size.

Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

Hi Pamela! I'm Angela here in San Diego and the heat is brutal isnt it?

I wholly agree with Mary. I just love the picture of you sans wig! You are stunning. If you cover that thing up with a scarf at the wedding I'll be so upset. Hey, have you tried rubbing a little fragrance-free antiperspirant onto your head before applying make-up and such? I've taken a natural spray kind, burts bee's brand, sprayed some into my hand then rubbed it lightly onto my head like lotion. It seems to keep my head less sweaty and less shiny especially in hotter weather. I also would steer away from any kind of makeup that has reflective pieces like mica in it. The head can get shiny enough without any help right?

Wow, I just realized that the event in question happened already or is happening right now. Whoops! Well, hopefully the antiperspirant thing will come in handy for the future. I'm sure you looked lovely, Pamela!

A bald (obviously due to pattern baldness and shaving, not AA) guy once asked me how I got my head so shiny. I told him with a straight face that I use this really fine grade of sandpaper. Then I told him the truth. You had to be there.

Another proudly bald gal in San Diego? Yea!

Japanese blotting papers and Japanese face powder are staples of my anti-shine arsenal.

Pressed powder is ideal for anti-shine touch-ups on the go like the ones from amphigory.com . Ask for trial samples to check out your best color.
