I would suggest going to MAC and checking out their spray on foundation. It’s supposed to give great coverage!

Have you tried a primer or a base?  I use Bare Escentuals, and use their primer, which works well.  For the wedding day, though, I feel I need a little extra help, and I think I am going with airbrush makeup.  It’s a little more expensive than a regular makeup application, but I think it will look great in pics.

 Good luck!

Bare Escentuals isn’t heavy enough for your wedding day I think. I used Clinique SuperFit (or Fit, whatever it is) and i slept in it….yes, fell asleep….all night long….woke up with all my foundation on and dry skin, not oily/greasy/foundationy mess

Pleasantly surprised. Oh, and no breakout after I cleaned my face up! And it didn’t end up all over my pillow either

I just bought some Almay smart shade foundation a few days ago. I put it on the other night before we went out to dinner and my guy actually noticed AND said my skin looked amazing…which is a huge compliment from him as he usually prefers me with no makeup. 🙂
My skin also tends to be dry with some oily patches and I really like the Almay so far.

this may sound really heavy and time consuming … but sometimes i use the chicken breading technique~

1. Moisturize your face with your everyday skincare – (the part where you egg the chicken cutlet)

2. Brush over with loose powder – (flouring the cutlet)

3. with a sponge DAB your fluid, cream, foundation in a stippling motion and blend well for an airbrushed finish. Never smear on foundation .. it will leave streaks. – (breading the cutlet) 

4. Quickly brush over with loose powder again – ( … adding more breading(?))

like VISTAGIRL .. i fell in love with CARGO’s HD line. For FULL coverage try KEVIN AU COIN’s skin enhancer. It’s a little pricey considering the size. But a little bit goes a LONG way with this product. 

i hope this helps~

I use Make Up For Ever HD Primer and Foundation and I’ve found that it stays put and covers really well without feeling like you’re wearing layers of makeup.

For my engagement pics, my MUA used Dior Airflash and I loved that as well. It’s a spray on foundation.

Sephora carries both of those; they also carry the Cargo Blu-Ray/HD makeup that Vistagirl mentioned. Good luck!

I’d say try MAC. I use their Studio FX pressed powder foundation and love it.  I’d also recomend checking out Prescriptives (Px). They do a color matching sysem that works pefrectly. I use both of these and I’m so happy with how my skin looks.

 Also check into getting a primer.

You need a primer, and to touch up with a pressed powder as you get oily.  Don’t use foundations with SPF, as they make you look greasy with flash photography.  Try MAC foundation, or Laura Mercier foundation.

I have heard many, many people swear by Laura Mercier foundation.  I haven’t tried it yet, but I am thinking about investing myself.  🙂

I’m another Make Up Forever HD Foundation fan!  It leaves your face looking flawless but it’s not cakey..coverage is great (enough to cover my scars) and stays on my face all day ..i use smashbox primer before i put foundation on..and both seem to work great on my oily face.

Hey Kourtann … maybe perhaps it’s the tool you’re using… what did you use to apply your foundation?

try using a sponge wedge … http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P12282&categoryId=B70

or the stippling brush … http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P148005&categoryId=B70

i usually have a hard time recommending products cuz what works for me, may not for you .. a great way for you to find your product might be to shop at sephora … they accept returns with full money back even after use if the product doesn’t work for you.
