I love bare escentuals myself. However, some people say that as wedding makeup, you may need to touch up often depending on the weather, since wedding makeup has to last a long time.

The only real “no” I know of is not to wear SPF – it may put a white cast on your face in photos.

Regarding longevity, what about layering your foundation? If you use a primer, a liquid foundation, and then dust your mineral make-up on top, it should last just fine. The powder will help absorb oil too.

mineral makeup is definitely a no in photos.  the minerals in the makeup create reflections of light which makes your skin look really oily and shiny in photos.

I browsed a little bit for different mineral makeup pictures. I read some great experiences with mineral make up and some not so great reviews. I think it really depends on the type, the brand, the application, the experience of the artist, and just the type of look you’re going for. You should do a trial yourself and photograph yourself to see if it works for you.

You can also go visit different mineral makeup’s cosmetic counter to see if there’s an artist who can recommend the right products.

I personally think it is hit or miss.  I was in a photoshoot a couple weeks ago and wore some mineral makeup and it was fine overall.  There were a couple of shots where I had a weird white spont on my forehead, but we really dont know where that is from since it was like 2 pictures and they were in the middle of the shoot.  None after had the random spot.
