Best foundation etc for photos

Recommended Posts

I am sure there are posts on this but couldn't find them. I am about to buy foundation for my wedding. I normally wear bare minerals but want something a little more for the photos (outdoors of course) but don't want it to be too thick so I can still use it later because I know it will be pricey. I am willing to spend a decent amount to look good in the pics if i need to.

I know that spf etc. is not good for photos. I am looking for what brand to get. I have seen on other sites that HD make-up, Christian Dior, Mac etc particularly mentioned on other sites. What do you all think and what are you all wearing? Oh and what powder with whatever brand you recommend if any? Thanks.

I use MAC Studio Fix Foundation and I love it. For powder I use MAC Blot Pressed Powder. I used to use Merle Norman and I had to have touch-ups during the day, but with the MAC I go all day without touch-ups and it looks flawless in pics!

I also normally wear mineral foundation, but will be wearing "Prescriptives" blended foundation for the wedding - if you go to one of their counters at a department store they can specially blend a shade to exactly match your skin tone! Also, it's great for sensitive/acne prone skin (ME! LOL), and does really great under all lights.

 

My makeup artist also swears by Armani foundation, if that helps at all ~ it is very nice and lightweight. I wore that for our Engagement pics, but now my skin is too sensitive to wear anything other than Prescriptives (not to knock Prescriptives, they do have a very good product).

 

I've heard Mac is very good also, but have never tried it.

 

Hope that helps! :)

I am a Mary Kay girl...all the way! I use a liquid foundation with a powder over it & it's perfect! It is not heavy at ALL. YOu could look up a local beauty consultant on the website & they will work to figure out a look or just a foundation that works for you!

 

Hope it helps!!

I am a huge Laura Mercier fan...her foundation is awesome. (Her line is a bit pricey, but well worth it!)

I have gotten many compliments on my skin since switching from Bare Minerals.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
