Did anybody’s groom wear or plan on wearing some makeup so their skin looked really good? Could anyone tell? I used a little on him for his sister’s wedding (his acne flaired up), but it was so minor nobody could tell. When I told FSIL this, she said, "hey my hubby wore some too!"
Is this some dark secret of the grooms? My FI is concerned about his face freaking out on him the day of.

FI’s cousin’s husband (got that?) wore some bronzer on the day-of. I think if your man has a problem with shine he could carry around some of those blotting papers. I’m hoping to put my FI on a strict face washing regimine a few months before the wedding. He doesn’t have full acne, but he gets random flare ups. Those REALLY bad ones like right in the middle of his forehead. Your wedding is less than 2 weeks away (eek!) so if you just make sure he’s taking care of his skin he should be ok. Since he’s worn a little before I say have him wear a bit if he needs it on the day of. I know there are sheer powders that minimize shine, too. Check out Sephora.com, maybe they have some tips 🙂

Ummm…my groom had a black eye from the night before the wedding. Something to do with men and drinking and the groomsmen wanting to wrestle. Needless to say, there was heavy cover-up involved. He wouldn’t have worn any in any other case, but he’s super "manly." I think it is perfectly reasonable for a man with a blemish to use a little bit of makeup to help out with the pictures in his big day!

I don’t think he will wear makeup, but I bought him some blotting papers so he’s not shiny in the photos. He seems to be receptive to the idea of using them. Luckily, he doesn’t have a problem with acne, but boy can he produce oil on his skin (especially when he drinks)!

I put some photofinish primer on my man’s face! I think it really matted him out for the photos and also provided a little sunscreen for him.
He would be pretty embarassed if anyone knew!

He might, I offered to send my makeup artist over… We did our e-pics two days ago, and he had a massive zit on his forehead, and I kind of attacked him with concealer and translucent powder (he gets really shiny). He whined about feeling emasculated, but admitted once he looked in the mirror that his skin looked better and he didn’t look like a girl. So I think we’re heading in the makeup direction.

He is taking care of his skin (diligently) but you know, it’s hot and sweaty, they get shiny or stressed and they don’t usually bust out their compact like we do, lol. And sometimes a zit is just "RIGHT THERE" and you just notice it.
I may "drop a hint" to his sister (standing on his side, also a stylist) and see if she’ll ever so discreetly take care of his skin or ask him if he wants some of my stash for the day of. I should buy him some blotting papers. That’s not like "makeup" but it does help! Yikes, that’s awkward…"hey your brother has shiny skin will you put makeup on him for me?" haha oh man.
I don’t want him to be offended if I’m like "Here’s a kit with makeup for you skin!" and upset him. He’s sensitive about it.
I think the key point is that nobody really knows but us! ha! The grooms are not alone I guess =]

I had to powder my honeys face for a play we were in. So yeah I’ll probably powder him for the wedding too 🙂

Josh definitely wouldn’t go for it. He sees it that the photography will be retouched to where anything that looks out of place will be fixed, and he has really flawless skin as is. We both have good gene pools, lol. He always believes that natural is best, but doesn’t mind that I get my makeup done.

My husband agreed to some tinted moisturizer on our wedding day, and then forgot to wear it. When we got our photos back, he totally regretted it because he has seriously red splotchy skin that’s somehow magnified in photos. He would have looked totally natural (not perfect) with the moisturizer.
When I told him it was technically a “moisturizer” and not a “foundation” he was more okay with the idea 🙂

FI has been asking for help with taking care of some of his acne flare ups so I am hoping that he will let me help him out with clearing up/covering up for the wedding. He’s very masculine and into being a “man” so I don’t know if it will work.

Um so i totally wish I’d done his makeup for him. He ended up with one big zit right in the middle and the flash hit it just right and made it look awful! Plus our photographer didn’t even bother to fix it and edit it out.

My makeup artist was shocked that my husband wasn’t coming in for wedding day makeup! Mr. Parfait just laughed it off, but she gave him a good scolding (through me). I’m guessing that a lot of grooms come to her the morning of the wedding. Who knew!

i used some concealer on my man for our e pics because he had a pimple pop up in a really bad place… he didnt say a word about feeling not masculine… and i am sure if need be i will do it again and planned to perhaps use some of my mineral veil on him
