    so I thought that I would bump this thread to find out how the make-up held up on the actual wedding day. I'm still in search of a primer and I'm scared to buy one! lol

    thoughts anyone?!?

      Smashbox Cosmetics has a really good primer. You can purchase a small travel size to give it a test run. I will say it is expensive for the full tube but you will only need a little. So if you not one to wear a full face every day I would stick with the small travel size. I go mine from Ulta for $10. HTH

          well ive always used mac as far as cover up and stuff...but i rarley use makeup up, mostly power studio fix and bronzer just so i dont look so pale and can cover any spots....so my BD shoot is comign up so i figured i can test run my makeup for the wedding with the BD shoot...i bought from MAC, a liquiid foundations, a concealer for under the eyes and for any spots, then she said to put the studio power fix on top...she used a brush to brush it on....then a blush or bronzer....i have eye shadow and liner and lipstick and lip gloss already...i liek the natural look..i dont liek dark colors neither...i like more pinks and beiges...tom i have to work at another site and want to look nice so i will try out the makeup, but only the foundation, powder and bronzer...not the eye shadow as i dont want to look like im going to a party lol

            I wear Bare minerals and love it. I wear Smashbox Photo Perfect base (it comes in clear, or correcting shades) under the Bare minerals, when I want it to last forever. And Urban Decay eye primer potion on the eyes to make it last all night. You can get the Photo Perfect and Urban Decay in travel sizes if you just want to try it.

              Great thread. I use smashbox light primer and I think it really helps with oil control and making my foundation last. I have super oily skin and travel a lot (which makes me even more oily) and this has made a huge difference.

                Does anyone know if Mary Kay foundation is ok for acne-prone skin? I'm also afraid of having to "de-grease" in between photos, especially if it's hot out....... does it stay pretty matte?

                  I love Estee Lauder makeup and in my opinion they have the best mascara. I am looking for a different foundation and powder for the wedding day though. I always sweat above my lip (when I'm really hot) I know gross. Sorry anyway, I want to make sure my makeup doesn't completly sweat away before I even get down the isle. Do you ladies know of anything that would help with that?

                    I am like some girls who don't really put on make up on a daily basis but I'm OCD with my skin care regime. I have oily skin so very careful about which makeup I use and won't cause me to breakout. I used to be a bare minerals girl but I just feel that it's seasonal and looks better in the winter than in the summer. I have smashbox photo finish primer and it does make a difference. I recommend Laura mercier tinted moisterizer and make up forever HD foundation. In the summer I tan very easily so I don't really put on foundation because my existing ones don't match anymore. So I like to enhance the glow and use bronzer and love lorac perfectly lit luminizing powder.

                      Great thread! I also don't wear too much make-up, so this is definitely an unfamiliar territory for me :o) I also have really oily skin, so I've been thinking about what to do for my wedding. I guess I should actually start looking soon. I was thinking of maybe even doing a trial run and using that for my engagement shoot? We'll see...
