It’s a no go for me (fomer MUA speaking). The sunscreen tends to photograph very light/ gray/ ashen looking when using a flash. Plus the mica adds a sparkle element when combined with sunlight and flash that can make you look like you put glitter all over your face. Some people like the sparkly/ dew look, but I think it is too trendy for wedding photography. I wouldn’t want to look back and wonder why my face was so sparkly.

I voted no. I wear BE daily with a smashbox primer- it doesn’t stay put on my skin without using primer. But, I have noticed in some photos my face doesn’t photograph well. Sometimes it makes me look washed out and sometimes it looks fine. This could be the SPF or just the fact that it is mineral makeup- not sure. I would def not recommend it for wedding photos since a flash will certainly be used and I’m sure you want to look your best.

Used Bare Minerals for my wedding this month and was so happy with it. Had a few tester shots taken a few weeks beforehand as I too had read things about it not photographing well but it turned out really well for me. I used all starter kit products except for the eyeshadow which I bought separately. If you are worried just give your photographer a quick call. Mine was only too happy to come and take a few photos at my home just to put my mind at rest.

I wear BE as my everyday makeup, but had airbrush makeup done for my wedding day instead.

You will be fine! I use something else which also has sunblock properties. And if applied properly, it will look good. You won’t see any difference.

I use artistry.. Similar to bare essentials but more coverage and it looks great in pictures

I’ve heard on the Bee not to use mineral make-up for pro-photos, but the salon that is doing my make-up uses it all the time, and they specialize in wedding make-up. So I’m not really worried, I figure a pro wouldn’t use it if it won’t photography well! They also may have put a special primer or something on top, I don’t remember what they did at my trial.
