I believe this question has been asked before, but I am wondering specifically for the AA brides (feel free to respond if you have darker skin as well or even those who don’t have darker skin but know of another’s experience with the makeup )
What is your experience with flash photography and this makeup? i already use BareMinerals for my everyday and am pleased with it overall, but I am hearing from left and right that the SPF causes a strange "glow".
i’ve tried photographing myself around the house in varying light and have only gotten one pic (out of possibly 50. not take all at one time! i’m working on diy makeup trials too) that has a wierd cast on my face. But I know that my camera is not professional (digital, 4megapixel) and wonder if a "real" camera would produce the glow more frequently.
i would love to not have to purchase another foundation if possible…
any thoughts/tips/comments are greatly appreciated!

I had my engagement photos taken while wearing mineral make-up. There was no problem. I simply put on a very light coat of a non-mineral powder over my finished look. I love it and will be wearing it for my wedding. I have very pale skin, so even without the make-up I have a tendency to look washed out in photographs — that didn’t happen with the minderal makeup. In fact, the make-up that makes me the most washed out looking is MAC. PM me if you want a link to my engagement photos.

I’m not AA, but my lovely SIL is. She wore BareMinerals for my wedding, and she looked fantastic in the photos. (Of course, with her incredible skin coloring, she looks fantastic ALL the time, but I digress.) 🙂 She has told me that if she’s going to be photographed in that makeup, she uses a little extra blush to counteract any potential wash-out. Hope this helps, good luck!

I’m not AA, but in photos I do tend to have a little shine because of the foundation so I know what you mean about the glow. In some photos more than others it almost makes my skin look oily. I was told it is because of the titanium dioxide in the powder, so maybe this is what you’ve heard of. If you don’t see it in photos you’ve taken, then I would think you should be fine.

i’m not liking the idea of having to buy new foundation as well….so i am hopeful. i’m considering calling my photographer and seeing if he’d be willing to do 2or 3 test shots (for FREE). one in sunlight. one indoors and another in dim lighting.
