Bare Minerals. Can’t beat it – and the mineral veil has spf in it. I won’t use anything else.

I used Nars Sheer Glow foundation and LOVED it.  It made my skin look flawless.

I wore the Two Faced BB cream for my e-pics and it looked totally normal. I’d seriously like to see these supposed effects that SPF does to your skin in photos, because I’ve never noticed anything but I see it mentioned quite often lol.

I used Smashbox 15 hour moisturizing foundation on my wedding day, but have used MUFE HD in the past with decent results. MUFE just didn’t have the staying power to be my wedding day choice.

I had airbrush foundation for my e-pics, which revealed that my skin reacts to airbrush make-up. It was awesome (sarcasm). I can’t use MAC at all because their stuff causes my skin to react.

My dear friend and MUA used Shu Umera on me; however, I recently learned that it is no longer available in the U.S.  I saw that @RahlyRah: recommended NARS, and I used to wear one of his foundations and really liked it. (I haven’t tried the one she is recommending, but NARS makes great cosmetics.)

NYX HD is a dupe for MUFE HD at a fraction of the cost. It’s what I used on my wedding day.

I decided to use Revlon PhotoReady for both our engagement photos and wedding. Since I did my own make up for both I did a trial with several types of foundation. I would apply one on half of my face then another on the other side. At the end of the day I looked in the mirror to see how it “wore”. Did it stay? Was it greasy? I wanted it to last and was very happy with the outcome of the pics.

I have super sensitive, combination skin and I’ve been wearing Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer for a while. For the wedding, I purchased her full-coverage compact foundation. I wore it for one week and got great feedback from friends/coworkers. I love the heavier coverage, the silky feel, and that it does’t irritate my skin or cause breakouts.

Hourglass Veil fluid foundation totally in love with it now but is so expensive.  I actuallly paid for the girl at sephora to have a hotel the day of our wedding and she came!  I am clueless about makeup!  I’m out now and am feening for it!  It covered my rosacea!!! Yay!
