FI’s cousin’s husband (got that?) wore some bronzer on the day-of. I think if your man has a problem with shine he could carry around some of those blotting papers. I’m hoping to put my Fiance on a strict face washing regimine a few months before the wedding. He doesn’t have full acne, but he gets random flare ups. Those REALLY bad ones like right in the middle of his forehead. Your wedding is less than 2 weeks away (eek!) so if you just make sure he’s taking care of his skin he should be ok. Since he’s worn a little before I say have him wear a bit if he needs it on the day of. I know there are sheer powders that minimize shine, too. Check out Sephora.com, maybe they have some tips 🙂

Ummm…my groom had a black eye from the night before the wedding. Something to do with men and drinking and the groomsmen wanting to wrestle. Needless to say, there was heavy cover-up involved. He wouldn’t have worn any in any other case, but he’s super "manly." I think it is perfectly reasonable for a man with a blemish to use a little bit of makeup to help out with the pictures in his big day!

I don’t think he will wear makeup, but I bought him some blotting papers so he’s not shiny in the photos.  He seems to be receptive to the idea of using them.  Luckily, he doesn’t have a problem with acne, but boy can he produce oil on his skin (especially when he drinks)!

I put some photofinish primer on my man’s face! I think it really matted him out for the photos and also provided a little sunscreen for him.

He would be pretty embarassed if anyone knew!

He might, I offered to send my makeup artist over… We did our e-pics two days ago, and he had a massive zit on his forehead, and I kind of attacked him with concealer and translucent powder (he gets really shiny). He whined about feeling emasculated, but admitted once he looked in the mirror that his skin looked better and he didn’t look like a girl. So I think we’re heading in the makeup direction.

I had to powder my honeys face for a play we were in. So yeah I’ll probably powder him for the wedding too 🙂

Josh definitely wouldn’t go for it. He sees it that the photography will be retouched to where anything that looks out of place will be fixed, and he has really flawless skin as is. We both have good gene pools, lol. He always believes that natural is best, but doesn’t mind that I get my makeup done.

My husband agreed to some tinted moisturizer on our wedding day, and then forgot to wear it. When we got our photos back, he totally regretted it because he has seriously red splotchy skin that’s somehow magnified in photos. He would have looked totally natural (not perfect) with the moisturizer.

When I told him it was technically a “moisturizer” and not a “foundation” he was more okay with the idea 🙂

Fiance has been asking for help with taking care of some of his acne flare ups so I am hoping that he will let me help him out with clearing up/covering up for the wedding. He’s very masculine and into being a “man” so I don’t know if it will work.

My makeup artist was shocked that my husband wasn’t coming in for wedding day makeup!  Mr. Parfait just laughed it off, but she gave him a good scolding (through me).  I’m guessing that a lot of grooms come to her the morning of the wedding.  Who knew!

i used some concealer on my man for our e pics because he had a pimple pop up  in a really bad place… he didnt say a word about feeling not masculine… and i am sure if need be i will do it again and planned to perhaps use some of my mineral veil on him
