I am trying to decide on which type of foundation to wear on my big day. I currently use Bare Minerals for my everday foundation, but I’m not sure if it will offer enough coverage and staying power for the long haul. What type do you use and which brand do you like best?

I use both liquid and powder, not at the same time though. Mac studio fix for both. I love it!! It lasts all day. I use a primer underneath as well because my skin is oily too. Best bang for my buck!!

I also wear Bare Minerals powder. I have very light skin with rosy cheeks, I’m also lucky in that I rarely breakout with anything. So I really don’t require much coverage. The Bare Minerals does a great job at smoothing out my color from my rosy cheeks.
I’ve heard you need to apply more make-up for photos for the big day, and since I’m not really sure how to do that, or false lashes for that matter, I plan on having someone do my make-up, with a test run beforehand.

I used a foundation stick and some powder. Pretty standard. On a daily basis, I use mineral powder or nothing.

@RobinGirl: I’m currently wearing non (which absolutely amazes me). On my wedding day, I just wore Juice Beauty CC Cream with concealer and powder. I added some CoverGirl cream powder where needed. It was totally fine. And I have acne.

I am super allergic to pretty much every brand since most contrain SPF, but I found a great organic raw earth powder (powder/foundation mix) that worked beautifully right before my wedding! It is super light and provides great coverage that lasts all day!

I use laura mercier for big events and meetings. For everyday wear I got with sonia kashuk or orgins if I can find it on sale.

My MUA hardly used anything on me– maybe some cream foundation, with highlighting. My skin’s decent.
I think I wore Garnier BB cream underneath

I wear regular liquid stuff on a daily basis, and I went with airbrush on the big day.

I use Pür Minerals liquid foundation sometimes and powder foundations other times. I really like the coverage it provides.

I use Makeup For Ever HD Foundation for any events. Especially ones with photos being taken. It’s a liquid and I like to use the HD Micro finishing powder which is not really like a normal powder.

I didn’t vote…I just wore a BB cream.

I used Mary Kay liquid foundation over Mary Kay primer (amazing stuff!). Tip, use matte foundation, not luminous wear because the luminous wear will look all shiny in your pictures and that’s not pretty. I love the luminous wear kind for day-to-day usage though because I feel like it makes me luminous, haha. 🙂

I’ll wear what I normally wear Dior Skin Nude. It makes my skin glowy and flaaaawleeeess.
