I too have fair skin and freckles. I would strongly reccomend the Porefessional primer by Benefit. It’s expensive but works wonders! I would also suggest a BB cream (I really like Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD). I use it and find that it doesn’t fully cover my freckles but doesn’t make them look washed out (on me anyways). Both of these items can be found at Sephora. I would ask for a sample of the BB cream to see if it matches your skin tone before investing in a full size. Also, make sure not to get the kind one with SPF for your wedding because I’ve read that SPF can ruin photos.

Another foundation I like is Make-up Forever HD (also at Sephora). I find this to be a little more drying though so if you have dry skin, maybe mix some lotion or bb cream in it. It has so many shades to choose from though so you should be able to find one to match your skin tone perfectly.

I definitely recommend a primer for special occasions. I like Smashbox and NARS. I don’t wear it every day, just days when I’m doing full makeup or for evenings and special events when I need staying power. 

For foundation, my favourite brands are Chanel, Giorgio Armani and Make Up For Ever. From Chanel, the Aqualumiere Aqua is a great everyday (or day to night) foundation – it’s lightweight, glowy but gives decent medium coverage. For special occasions, I really like Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation and also their Maestro formula (which is more full coverage). They give a beautiful silky finish and excellent staying power. MUFE’s HD foundation is great for photos too, in conjunction with their HD loose powder.
