I’ve heard the MUFE HD powder is amazing in real life, but beware the flash photography.  I’m VERY leery to use it on my wedding day.  But if you tried it and didn’t see any flashback, I’d go ahead and set with that and then just use blotting papers to keep shine at bay as needed.

Or, MUFE also has a loose setting powder that doesn’t flashback.  I’ve heard good reviews about that too.  

Or Mac has Mineralize Skinfinish powder that is also amazing.

And yes, Urban Decay setting spray gets good reviews, although in my experience it doesn’t last for 16 hrs as it’s stated to.  

Hope that helps!

i use a light translucent powder to set my makeup. i’ve always done this and my make up looks the same at the end of the day as it did first thing in the morning.

i didn’t have to touch up once on my wedding day, it stayed perfectly in tact for 14+ hours until i took it off.

ELF HD powder gave me the same benefits as the MUFE one, except it didn’t turn me white in pictures like the MUFE one did. This blog does a comparison of a few products used during flash photography.

I also actually prefer the ELF setting spray to set my makeup, but I have dry skin, not oily skin, so that may be why I prefer it. The UD one didn’t do much for me.

I really like the MUF setting powder. Once I’m gone from the house though, it’s too much to tote around in my purse :). I got the Urban Decay de-slick mattifying powder to carry with me. It works really well to remove shine. I have their setting spray, but it doesn’t really do that much for me.

@MrsElopement:  MrsElopement, your makeup trial picture that you posted was soooooo gorgeous…would you mind giving us a brief idea of what you used? Especially products with the staying power to last all day.  (If you don’t want to, that’s cool too.  No pressure!)

I like moisturizing with Murad Oil Control Mattifier during the summer months and for setting spray Urban Decay De-Slick works well for me. For powder, I like Mattify! Ultra Powder.  I also like using a matifying primer as I’ve been told a good base is key to preventing shine. I second having blotting paper on hand.

@cdncinnamongirl:  I did a post on my blog about all of the products I used. I also plan on doing a tutorial soon. In my makeup trial post I used all bareMinerals products. 

On the day of, for my face I used Palladio Herbal Foundation Primer, NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation and NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation. I used a brush and a beautyblender to apply the foundation. I actually did a friend’s makeup, for her wedding, with the same products and they worked well for her.

@MrsElopement:  Thanks so much! I will go check out your blog right now.  I’m so glad to hear that you used bare minerals….that’s what I use on my face every day (I don’t like the feel of foundation that’s too heavy) and I’ve been told not to use it on my wedding day due to the photos.  A Mac mua just told me she’s never heard that, and to go ahead and use it rather than buying a foundation just for the day.  Plus, I will likely be a little darker (self tanner, which I don’t normally bother with) so I’d hate to buy a foundation that doesn’t even match my usual tone.
