I second @danadelphia…I love Make Up For Ever’s HD foundation and I also used their primer. Bare Minerals is a great foundation for everyday wear but it doesn’t photograph as well

My photographer told me I could just wear my everyday makeup…Bare Minerals. I mean, I’m not really super worried about how my skin looks in photos because that’s her job to make sure I look good, right? lol.

I also second @danadelphia ‘s rec for Make Up For Ever HD Foundation!!  I tend to get kinda oily so I also used to Cargo foundation primer underneath and their pressed powder on top to set the foundation, both from their blu ray line.

@kate169: It’s true that Bare Minerals doesn’t photograph well. The SPF in the poweder is very reflective and makes your skin look really pale when the flash hits it.

I used Make Up For Ever’s HD foundation too. It looked great all night, even when I started sweating like a pig on the dance floor. I didn’t use a primer, though. I got a sample of the foundation from Sephora to use at my bridal shower as a test-run, and then another sample to take to my wedding. I would totally buy a bottle of it though, it was great.

Oh man, I have never heard of this Make Up For Ever HD. I just googled it and it looks awesome. Now my question is…does one try to find a makeup artist who uses this, or should the bride take her own foundation to the makeup artist? When I did my e-pics, she just used what she had…she ended up using a lot of powder since it was like 100 degrees outside, but I was hoping for more of a flawless finish (my skin is not that great, so I need a lot of coverage to even things out).

I wear mineral powder foundation on a regular basis and I can attest to the fact that it doesn’t photograph well AT ALL.  Even when my skin looks perfect in person, whenever I’m photographed in that makeup my skin looks almost greasy (I guess it would sound more lovely and lady-like if I said “dewey” instead lol).  I am doing my own makeup for my wedding and have done several trials and I take photos of myself afterwards… I always love my eye makeup but hate the way my skin looks (and it usually looks FLAWLESS in the mirror, so I’m angry it looks so different on film).  I don’t suggest mineral powder foundation unless you’re a fan of the shiny skin look.

@ktbrady — i think you can buy it yourself and simply ask your make up artist to use it.  the girl who did my make up was actually from the MAC store, but had no problems with using the foundation i gave her.  oh and get yourself some Clean & Clear blotting tissues too!  Reapplying layer after layer of powder can get kinda cake-y so those definitely do the trick
