Hi everyone! My wedding is taking place on the beach in the month of August. That means it will be HOT, and I will be in the sun for awhile. I am looking for a foundation that will hopefully not melt off my face, yet I have heard that it is better to not get one with SPF because of how it will turn out in pictures. I was wondering if it was okay to wear SPF underneath the foundation, seeing as how I do not want my skin to toast. I’m Asian, and my skin type is combination/kinda oily. What recommendations do you have?

I wonder if the Christian Dior Airbrush foundation would work well for this? I’ve only tried the sample from the counter, so maybe someone else has more experience with it?

I love Bare Escentuals / Bare Minerals. It doesn’t melt, it looks great, and it’s good for your skin. And it’s super easy to apply perfectly.

I love Bare Escentuals, too, and it has SPF, and (I think) photographs normally!
It’s a powder, but a lot finer than any "traditional" powder foundations.

It’s a mineral foundation, so it looks like a powder but you buff it into your skin, and it’s not dry and flaky like powder. Plus it has this mineral veil thing which reflects light and makes your skin look airbrushed. It photographs great! My girlfriend is a model, and it’s all she’ll use.
We’re getting married on a beach in the Bahamas in 2 weeks, and it’s what we’ll be using for all the wedding party.
Here’s some pictures of my cousin before and after the makeup. She doesn’t normally wear anything, and even she said it felt like she wasn’t wearing anything. Scroll through to see them all.

I suggest not using any type of mineral foundation as it will make your skin shine in photos. If you want the shine, then by all means go for it, but if you want a matted look, go with something else.
I personally use mineral make-up on a daily basis because of my sensitive skin, but I did notice the difference between my mineral make-up and being airbrushed. Being airbrushed is so much nicer, cleaner and doesn’t need that much touch-up. Plus, it feels as if you have no make-up on. I suggest putting on SPF before you get your make-up done. Or talk to your make-up artists and see what she suggests. We had our engagement photos at the beach and it was warm, but I’m glad that I got airbrushed because I didn’t sweat as much as I would around the face if I had regular make-up on (if that makes any sense).
Hope that helps.
