I didn’t do my own makeup but I wish I had. I did have my makeup artist use my Kat Von D Lock It foundation. Though, my holy grail foundation is the Estee Lauder Double Wear. Makeup Forever’s Mat Velvet+ is also a good option. Drugstore wise, Revlon Colorstay for oily/comb skin is a great option.

ETA: all of the options listed are matte and great at holding up throughout the day and heat.

I used Makeup Forever HD foundation and concealer.  Used with a primer, powder, and setting spray it lasted on a warm day and through sweating from dancing.

HappySideUp:  I use MAC Studio Face and Body Foundation. It’s light and sheer (unless you decide to build it). It’s “just enough” – and it’s water resistent.

I didn’t do my own make-up, but I brought my stuff for my MUA to use (I have sensitive skin). I used Smashbox moisturizing 15 hour foundation over NARS skin smoothing prep primer, and sealed with a double whammy or Tarte amazonian clay setting powder and Urban Decay setting spray. My make-up didn’t budge.

i used my usual foundation- almay truly lasting color. and i used monistat anti-chafing gel as a primer- it has the same ingredients and works just as well as smashbox primers, but it’s way cheaper.

I have to third the mention of Make Up For Ever HD foundation. I haven’t gotten married yet but I’m devoted to it so I’m sure it’s what I’ll use at my wedding. It has great coverage and lasts a long time, way longer than any other foundation I’ve ever used.
