I use the Smashbox original primer. A lot of people RAVE about the Benefit Porefressional though. I’ve heard the Monistat works just as good but make sure your friend doesn’t mind that going on her face. I’m sure some people would be grossed out by it. I’ve also read that it can cause breakouts.

I use Urban Decay’s Primer Potion for my eyes but MAC ProLongwear concealer is great for both an undereye concealer and eye primer. So it’s like a 2-in-1 product.

I’ve never tried the UD De-Slick setting spray but I did buy their Up All Nighter spray and I’m pretty sure that’s what was causing my breakouts recently. I stopped using it and now my skin is fine. Kind of bummed about that. However, my foundation lasts seriously all day and night so I don’t really need it. (I got it when I was using a different foundation).

Just make sure to “test” all the products on her skin well before the wedding to see how they hold up and make sure they don’t cause breakouts.

MrsSparkle10:  For the Smash Box Primers, you can buy a small travel tube for $15 at ULTA.  I just bought BB & Halo Kit which came with the photo finish primer for $29.  The Halo powder sealed my makeup so that it lasted all day for my wedding and I lvoed the brush the kit came with!  The BB cream is nice for everyday wear but I used my Clinique foundation for the wedding day for fuller coverage.
