    LOL Tina, actually, I did buy the finishing powder. I was thinking about it after I posted, and I remembered when the woman at Sephora was putting it on, she didn't put on hardly any and she didn't put any on my nose. So, I'm going to do another run through myself maybe today or tomorrow and test it out. If it doesn't work, I'll probably order some finishing spray.

    I know there will be times I'll put my head on Matt's shirt, so I need to make sure I take care of that!!

        MAC is the best but you need to highlight and low light so you dont look like a painting

          Armani's new lasting silk UV foundation. It is super-light you won't feel like you have a mask on. It has light-reflecting particles and will not settle into fine lines like the MAC stuff and also contains sunscreen. Downside is that it is not cheap at $68.

            Light reflecting anything is bad for photos!
            I have a fabulous photographer I can share in the United States Virgin Islands in late April/early MayP.M. if interested!http://img.weddingco....pvbh7hxc5u.png

              I agree with Crystal, its important to "glow" but anything with light-reflecting particles-- especially in the tropical sun-- could look shiny. A way around it, though, would be setting it with a concealer setting powder. Same coverage, without the shine.

                I am planning on sticking with Giorgio Armani Cosmetics. Their products are pretty expensive but it works really well for my skin. I have tried Chanel, Laura Mercier and MAC before but in the end it is worth it to pay the extra.

                Cosmetic products are actually a very personal choice. What works for one bride may not work for another. It is all trial and error.

                  ok bare with me.. So I need to wear a moisturizer (which I wear arbonne spf every day) and then on top of that I put on a primer, and then a foundation? And then all the make up on top of that? I want to go with the smashbox primer cause it seems to be the one to go with, do I go with a smashbox foundation too or laura mercier? I am such a girly girl but very clueless when it comes to anything outside of eye shadow/lipgloss/mascara..

                    and which primer? There are the colored ones and the light one? oh man. I should probably just go to sephora and ask them but sometimes I don't trust the people working there!

                      I just ordered something from sephora online and got a free trial of urban decay primer so I will give my report when I get it!!! If any one is ordering the code for the freebie is URBANLAB
