Try Chanel.  My MUA used it on me for my day and my sisters use it on a daily basis. 

I use Laura Mercier.

I’ve been using Mary Kay for years.  I would never use anything else.

@MrsStrawberry24: Chanel and Laura are usually sold via Bloomingdales, Neiman or Saks.  I know its more expensive than Mac but I like how I feel like I don’t have makeup on.

I use the new MAC mineral foundation. I have also used Bobbi Brown.

L’Oreal has some great foundations in a wide variety of colors—I’m currently wearing the “Cappucino” shade. I’m a recent convert as I used to use MAC but got annoyed at the high cost!

@cz1789: I second Loreal True Match Cappucino. It matches my skin exactly and what I will be using the day of.

I have been using Bare minerals for the last 2 years and I love it. It dosen’t dry out my skin and it goes on soo smoothly. MAC made me break out and was too heavy for me.

Good question!!  Commenting so I can get some recommendations too. 

I’m a bare minerals girl (Warm Tan) but I want something more dramatic for the wedding day.

Thanks for letting me peek in on the suggestions!!

I can’t say enough about MAC. I actually have to mix two colors to get my perfect shade, but I think it’s totally worth it to get a flawless look. Plus their customer service is second to none. Their MUA can answer any of your questions and I never feel rushed when I go there, even if I’m not spending alot of money, I’ve always recieved to pnotch service. I wear a combination of NC45 and NC42.

Hey girls….  i swear by maybelline superstay foundation in “caramel”… reason being, it matches perfectly & it literatlly stays on ALL day long.. no lie.. I do use a Mary Kay primer underneath… I will not use anything else, so i will be wearing that with a little concealor, lol on my wedding day! maybe soem blush & lashes… im going for a nude lip…. its on the beach, so i dont want too much or to be “too made up”… hope that helps… its about 7 bucks at walmart and primer is around 10 or so i think for MK.
