    Hello fellow brides and bride-to-bes, do any of you have any recommendations on wedding day makeup?  I'm looking for something that is waterproof, since I know there will be lots of tears, and something that will last all day.

      Hey bride2be31011!

       

      I am a fellow bride-to-be as well as a make up artist.  My recommendations for waterproof eye makeup are as follows:

       

      - w/p eye shadow won't do much... invest in a good lid primer!  My recommendation is Smashbox's Photo Finish lid primer ($20 at Sephora/Ulta/Nordstrom).

      - w/p mascara WILL make a difference; try Diorshow Blackout, waterproof version.  I don't like it for every day use because it's such a pain to take off, but I will definitely be using this on my wedding day.  You can find this wherever Dior is sold, most department stores or Sephora ~$25

      - w/p liner will also make a difference.  I love to use Smashbox jet set w/p cream liner.  They have a variety of colors and can be found at the same places listed above for the lid primer, ~$22.

       

      As for foundation, there really is no such thing as w/p foundations... it's all marketing if you ask me!  I personally recommend an HD foundation (Smashbox and MUFE make good ones) as your skin will look flawless in photos.  Set the make up with either a translucent setting powder or powder foundation, depending on how much coverage you like.  Setting the make up will prevent the foundation from wearing off a lot quicker, especially in humid climates.  And don't forget your foundation primer!  Smashbox cosmetics is king at this... Primer Light might be your best option for a humid climate, but it will also depend on your skin type.  They produce NINE different kinds. 

       

      Hope this helps!

        depends on your skin type for foundation.

         

        If dry skinned, then try Armani Luminous or Chanel Vita Lumiere or maybe Chanel Prolumiere.

         

        If oily skinned, then Mac Pro long wear

          Hi ylekot,


           

          Is there a primer you can suggest for super oily skins? I don't have pimples, just oil and large pores!!!
