    babycuddlebee:  I plan on wearing a full face of makeup, applied with a light hand. I have some redness from old scarring on my cheeks, and I want to cover that up, alonside my massively dark undereye circles, so powder wouldn’t be enough on its own for me.

    I had a major issue with this for my wedding because I have freckles all over my face that I LOVE and they look really weird half covered up, and I would’t look like myself on my wedding day if they were fully covered.  I had a lot of push back from salons when I was looking for a stylist because the majority said that I would regret not having full face.  I finally found someone who did just a light “clear” powder to just keep my face from being shiny, and focused mostly on natural eye make up and lipstick.  I can’t remember if I had blush or not.  The pictures came out amazing and I look like myself!

    I’m aiming for a dewy, natural look, but will be attempting some contouring and blush, etc. I’m doing my own makeup, but since I don’t wear anything more than eye liner, I’m getting a lesson and buying supplies from a beauty shop. I’m going to be requesting foundation, concealer, powder, etc, just in case my skin doesn’t cooperate, though I’m going to try some light, mineral ones!

    babycuddlebee:  Well I’m so naturally gorgeous that all I wore was eyeliner and lipgloss! Lol!! The 2nd part of that is true anyway.  Never been a heavy make up person at.all.

    babycuddlebee:  just remember, if you are having a professional photographer, the cameras they use will capture everything. So you want to have some foundation to cover up any flaws you don’t want to come out in pictures. I like the natural look too, but I didn’t want to look like I wasn’t wearing any either

    I am going for a more natural makeup look but you do need a bit more for pictures. I felt like I had too much blush on, but then when I got my bridal portrait proofs back, I looked great and natural. You can skip heavy foundation if you are happy with your skin though. Falsies make a world of difference.

    Make-up is NOT a requirement for getting married. Wear as little or as much as you are comfortable wearing. If mascara and powder are the right level of make-up for you, then go for it.

    babycuddlebee:  I’m getting married during the winter, and am prone to dehydrated skin, so mineral foundation would require some serious prep to make sure my face didn’t end up looking massively chalky.

    I really didn’t wear that much makeup for my wedding and the pictures look awesome.  I just wore some powder (everyday minerals matte- looks GREAT in pictures), blush, a little bronzer for contouring, a light eyeliner, eyeshadow, a natural colored lipstain, and mascara.  I have really long eyelashes that are one of my best features, so I would feel silly wearing falsies.   I have freckles that my fiance LOVES, and I really just don’t like the look of insane amounts of makeup (in real life OR in photos).  I got many comments on my makeup.  Some of my bridesmaids did have makeup artists and had full face makeup done, and honestly I like mine better- even in pictures.
