Are there any ladies out there who are planning on doing their own wedding makeup, or have done their own and who don’t wear foundation daily? Are you planning on wearing it on your wedding day?
I never wear any face makeup (only eye shadow, liner, mascara), and my wedding is in May, so I don’t want to look radically different from my everyday, and I also don’t want to shine (which I worry about with foundation).

Following! I never wear foundation or really any other makeup besides mascara.

You have to get a decent matte foundation, bb cream, cc cream etc and maybe a mattifying setting powder/spray if youre worried about shine. Bring a camera in natural light and take pictures of a bare face and made up face and youll see the difference. A photographers camera captures everything so you may not look as flawless in print as you would in person without proper makeup.

Yes! Me. I did my own makeup and did not wear foundation. I never wear foundation. I really did not want to look dramatically different on my wedding day.

I don’t wear foundation, and never have. I will be doing my own makeup as well. <br />I plan on doing just what I normally do. Mascara, small cat eye, and a slightly glittery, taupe colored eyeshadow.

I did my own makeup for my wedding, and I normally only wear mascara and eyeliner on a daily basis.
Obviously you don’t have to wear foundation if you don’t want to, but if you’re investing in doing a great job on every other part of the makeup (eyes, lips, eyebrows, blush), I would invest in skin coverage as well. It will complete the whole look.
I used MAC face and body foundation, and mineralize skinfinish powder. These are very natural and lightweight. I hate anything that feels/looks cakey. This foundation was light enough for my freckles to come through, and just gave me a polished look. No shine. I highly recommend!

do you have any photos? I would love to see! My other concern is my SUPER INSANELY ALLERGIC TO EVERYTHING INCLUDING CETAPHIL face. I would have to experiment with different foundations to make sure I didn’t break out. This is a major concern for me.

OK, I’m a bit psycho so I’ve taken my eyes out, lol.
Right now I only have access to my pics on facebook, but I chose a couple that might help show the makeup.
The first pic is through my veil, but I still think you can see how light the makeup is.
The second one is near the end of the night, during my dance with my dad.
I got married in late Nov so I didn’t have the sweat situation that some brides have when they get married in the summer, so that helped.
Also, regarding your allergies – you could go to MAC and have them demo the products on you. Either make an appointment, or if they’re not very busy, one of the artists will just do a quick demo on you on the spot.
If you wear the makeup around all day, and don’t have a reaction, then I think you’ll be fine. They can also help you pick the correct colours for your skin tone.

I hardly ever wear any make up, I get a brow and lash tint once a month or so instead. I am.planning on wearing some for the wedding. I use lancome liquid foundation, I love it so much. If your worried about shine i would go for a mac bronzer or blush, they do the best powders for cover up. If your worried about allergies I would go to a department store and explain your issue to the cosmetics lady’s and they are usually happy to trial some out. You could even try the body Shop.

I got married in a simple JOP wedding and I didn’t wear any makeup that day. I don’t wear make up normally so I wasn’t going to change that on the day I got married.

I dont wear foundation daily and did my own make up for my wedding. I used Dior Airflash. I applied it will a brush after spraying a small amount in a glass. I set it with Make Up Forever HD Powder. The coverage was light and my skin looked flawless. I too have highly allergic skin and neither product caused me issues.

I don’t wear foundation or powder at all so I won’t be wearing it at my wedding. I think maybe just mascara and maybe something to fill my eyebrows so they show up in pics.
