    Hi ladies,
    I would love to hear your recommendations for makeup that is heat/sweat resistant! I am especially looking for a good foundation, and I have oily skin, so any products you can recommend that prevent shine would be great to hear about as well! Thanks so much! :)

      MAC studio fix is great in the heat, and will make your skin look great in the photos

          Perscriptives has a nice sweat-resistant foundation. I've used it a few times, and and my old roommate used to swear by it. When we would go out all the time (the good ol' days!!), she'd be dancing all night, sweating...and her makeup always looked pretty flawless. Using a primer helps too!

            I bought Model in a Bottle, but didn't get a chance to use it.. I was having some weird breakout two days prior to the wedding and didn't want to chance it by adding anything else to my face.. but I've read really great reviews about it. I bought the sensitive skin formula..

              Both my girlfriends that got married last year used Bobbi Brown ... one was for an outdoor wedding in August ... They both looked amazing. I think that they both used a stick foundation set with loose powder --- even though it sounds heavy, they both looked really natural.

              When I went to get a 'demo' at the counter w/ my best friend, it was an event with traveling make-up artists. The lady there said to make sure your foundation does NOT have any SPF in it on your wedding day ... she said the ingredients that block the sun also reflect the flash from the photography and you can end up looking either very shiny or really washed out ...

              I've asked if anyone else has heard of this, but no one has mentioned it ... it seems to make sense, though!

              I also use MAC products and really like them as well. There is also a good foundation primer called Photo Finish from Smashbox. It has a silicone base that minimizes pores and gives you a matte finish.

              Go have fun and play around at make-up counters!

                I agree with using a good primer first (MAC makes a pretty good one, but I love Shu Uemura's Under Base - it goes on like a mousse and looks great even if you just put a bit of a tinted powder over top of it instead of a foundation).

                    Real quick, also try the Cinema Secrets web site. They do make up for a lot of the television/movie actors to wear under the lights so its meant to stand up to heat and humity. I wore it for our engagement session, so I will be sure to post when I get pics back.

                      Cinema Secrets is a GREAT line! I use it all the time for t.v. work and it really gives you flawless, even coverage =) I've always had trouble matching my skin tone but their shades blend in really well! Does work really well under stage/camera lights so I'm sure it would work well in natural heat and humidity.
