    Here are bre's pictures. She is also wearing bare minerals.

    Good ones to see her makeup are 12, 27, 34, 49, 55. 113 is later in the evening & I think her makeup still looks good. Bareminerals is definitly a more natural look without a complete matte coverage. So maybe it's not for everyone on their wedding day. It's most likely what I'll be wearing though.

        I use the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. It really does go on light and its not very matte nor very shiny. I'd recommend using a foundation brush. It gives great coverage without feeling cakey or heavy.

        I also second the Dior Show mascara. I normally don't use the waterproof version but plan on getting that for the wedding. I like it better than Clinque, Estee and Lancome personally.

        I believe GA also has a hydra-glow foundation with spf. And a fluid sheer foundation, which goes on even lighter. Its more expensive and not too many stores sell it but lasts forever.

          I bought a beauty club membership at Carol Baker Visage, with the membership you can go for a makeover once a month and they don't pressure you much to buy their stuff. So I've gone twice before but neither time was I overly happy with my makeup. So maybe I should try MAC, it's just I didn't want to have to buy super expensive makeup, and I assume if you get a free makeover from them you have to buy their stuff (or at least they probably pressure you hard to).

          As for mascara, I read somewhere else somebody saying they tried fake lashes and loved the effect, plus you don't have to worry about mascara leaking! I'm going to give it a try before and see how it looks.

            The Armani Luminous Silk Foundation is amazing!
            Here's a link to some of their pther foundations.

            Yes, I would definately recommend even a little bit of foundation - camera's pick up every flaw and blemish. A light foundation will just even your skin tone out. If you don't want a cakey look and are not used to apllying foundations - don't use full coverage foundations.
            Always apply with a foundation brush - gives even application!

            P.S. Always test foundations in person and test on the jaw line - walk outside with a compact mirror to make sure there's an exact match.
            P.P.S If the colors are slightly off, you can always use a loose powder to match the color.

                  So I had the same topic question, and I did learn that the SPF in makeup reflects the light, which I never knew! But as far as the Moon Palace make up.....Im not sure what to do...my own or trust their salon?????
