I wore Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation. I went to Macys and they matched my skin ton and gave me a free 10 day supply to test it out before my wedding day. It was around $45. I used powder on my wedding day but I wear this foundation on a daily basis and don’t use powder- so it’s not really necessary.

As for mascara- I use Covergirl LashBlast on a daily basis. It’s waterproof and doesn’t flake.

I second  @alicia1745 on CoverGirl Lash Blast. Love. I’ve tried SO many waterproof mascaras that flake super easily, and this one definitely doesn’t!

Foundation-wise, I prefer mineral foundation. I use Bare Minerals, but honestly, Everyday Minerals is good and 1/3 of the price.

I like L’oreal mascaras- I wore the Voluminous Carbon Black waterproof mascara. I like that it stays all day, even though crying, but is easier than most to wash off (I hate when I can’t get my mascara off!).

For foundation, I would actually recommend against mineral foundation, because some people find it washes them out in photos. For full coverage, I love Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation, it lasts forever, and gives a matte finish. The only downside is that it doesn’t come in as many shades as some of the higher end makeup. You could buy it at CVS where they have a great return policy (even on open makeup) and try it out. I’ve also heard great things about NYX HD foundation- I haven’t tried it myself, but I do love their other products. They have more offerings for yellow undertones. If you want to go higher end, I would get Makeup Forever HD- I used that for about a month, and it was great (around $40). 

ETA: I would also use a primer & finishing powder. If you want to keep it cheap, use monistat anti chaffing gel (compares to Smashbox primer) & ELF HD powder (compares to MUFE).

I’m going to wear Make Up Forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation.  I went to Sephora and the girl tried 3 or 4 on me before finding the right one.  So far it’s got great staying power and it is  supposed to be one of the best for photos.
