Um.  I Googled and I’m still confused.  What exactly is medical makeup?  Just specially formulated brands of makeup that is supposed to be better for sensitive skin than regular makeup?

Is there a particular brand you recommend?  Or is that something you’d have to speak with a dermatologist about?

I was actually curious about the effect water had on skin. When we ingest it we’re moistorized of course, but doesn’t it act as a drying agent when our skin is exposed to water? Lately, when I’ve been getting home from class I rinse my face with water to remove the excess oil/makeup, and that seems to help keep acne down (I have combo skin, oily t-zone). Is that that a good idea or bad idea?

Thanks for the tips!

Thanks for the tips. I love the one about the 18hr color. That’s a great idea!

Thanks for the tips! I’ll be checking out the CG lipstick next time I go to Ulta.

Any tips for a 40+ bride? Will airbrush makeup cover up mild to med. hyperpigmentation?

arizonabride – I have hyperpigmentation on both of my cheeks. I had airbrush makeup for my wedding and I recently had regular brush makeup for a boudoir shoot.  Both covered up the pigmentation perfectly.  I forgot that it was even there!
