I always thought that matte blushes were preferable for wedding day makeup (and any other occasion where you might be dealing with flash photography), but recently I’ve come across more and more suggestions to use shimmery blushes like NARS Orgasm for the big day. I’d love to hear your thoughts and experience – will it look weird in pictures, or am I overthinking it?

You are overthinking it. Nars orgasm blush is AMAZING and beautiful. I used the Nars orgasm liquid illuminator on my cheek bones for my wedding day for a little glow! You will look beautiful.:)

One of my friends is a MUA and she uses Orgasm pretty often. It’s a great shade and complements so many skin tones. If you do use it just go light on bronzer and/or highlighter if you’re using a shimmer as well for those areas, or substitute for matte equivalents.

Most blushes have shimmer and you won’t see it in pictures. Orgasm isn’t that shimmery. NARS super orgasm is the very shimmery one.

Barbiestylez: akirasan: Thank you both! All of my favorite blushes have a little bit of fine shimmer, and I kind of thought I’d have to buy matte versions for the wedding (I’m DIYing my makeup)… If it’s not a huge deal, I’ll just get the Orgasm as a treat for myself, and stop worrying about it. 🙂

gelaine22: thank you so much – another vote for shimmer not being a huge deal!
