Is there any primer, foundation, powder, setting spray, ANY MAKEUP suggestions that you have found to make you look pore-less and simply amazing?
I want the coverage, but I don’t want to look like I piled a lot of product on my face. I’m pretty pale, so I have a lot of veins that you can see on my face and under my eyes, and I want them covered! Lol.
Any suggestions? Pictures would be awesome if you have them =]
Thanks in advance!

@rosworms: Best thing ever!!!!!!!!!!!
OP- I really like Make Up For Ever HD foundation and primer. I am pale, but with a lot of redness in my skin, so I use their green color-correcting primer, and then their HD foundation (#115…. like I said, I am pale). I also like Secret Camouflage concealer from Laura Mercier (#1). I seal it all with MUFE HD powder and Urban Decay setting spray (De-Slick for me, since my skin can get a bit oily, but they also have versions for normal and dry skin).

@rosworms: Could there be a better response? I don’t think so.

Hey- my two cents (I’m a Mary Kay Consultant and I’ve done a few of my clients bridal make up before and it always came out really nice)
-Microdermabrasion before the event (keeps your skin tone super even!)
-Foundation primer makes the WORLD of difference in keeping your look flawless
-if you use a powder makeup give your face a very light spritz of canned aerosal water (avian makes a little bottle of it you can find at drug stores) it keeps it from being too ‘matte’ and looking like powder sitting on your nose.
-Mary Kay has an amazing foundation called ‘creme to powder’ that I love for dressing up nights, super smooth and doesn’t look like gloppy foundation when it’s on!
-Brow Gel is super helpful for brides too, you will be getting a lot of hugs and have to move a veil around on your face and it looks silly if one of your eyebrows goes off kilter in the process!
Have fun experimenting!

@rosworms: lmao. that’s awesome.
as for the OP, check out this tutorial by Kandee Johnson: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1N26G6DQ4o
it’s not so much about the products so much as how you use them. Check out Kandee’s other videos for other amazing tutorials like skin care, sunless tanning, and fake eyelashes 🙂

The make up artist I’m thinking of using swears by Laura Mercier primer. 🙂
