I have an appt with an Aveda salon for them to do my make up & hair, but haven’t heard the best reviews for their makeup so I’m looking at other options.
Has anyone had their make up done for their wedding day by Bare Minerals?

I use Bare Minerals as my everyday makeup and love it. For my wedding day though I would be a little hesitant to use it. For everyday wear it is great, but I do tend to get a little shiny by the end of the day. I am not sure if it would hold up well enough to look good in pictures.
If you decide to try it though I would love to hear how it turns out!

whens your appointment with Aveda? I would wait and see how that turns out first,you might be pleasantly suprised or something. But if your not happy, you can then look into other options. Ive never tried it,but Ive heard good things about bare minerals,

@RahlyRah: I use it for every day too, and was also worried about the shininess factor. One of my friends just mentioned it, so thought I would see if anyone has tried it. 🙂
@kimbo89: I’m thinking that’s what I’ll do, but wanted to get other opinions, since the make up trial is only 2 weeks before the wedding so it doesn’t leave me a lot of time to figure out another place to do it and have another trial elsewhere….

I’ve heard that it can leave you shiny, but I have zero actual experience with the brand.
I would personally recommend Makeup Forever’s Invisible Cover Foundation. They did a photoshoot without retouching that was actually certified by a notary, lol. It’s definitely worth checking out.

I use bare minerals matte foundation for everday use because I hate looking shiny. I always top it with MAC blot powder, and usually still have to use oil blotting sheets at the end of a 12 hour shift at work. But I’ve tried alot of foundations, and no matter what I always end up shiny after a long enough time. I’m just always prepared for touch ups.
