I used the Make Up Forever HD line for my wedding day 😀 and I used some other sort of yellow make up/powder under the eyes as well for my never-goes-away totally-just-genetics dark circles. It looked just as great when I got home late at night as it did when my mua put it on 14 hours earlier.

I’m not a huge fan of Mac, but I used MUF HD on my wedding day too, and I can’t recommend it enough, especially with the finishing powder. I loved the smooth look it gave me, so I’m assuming that it wouldn’t settle into fine lines. 

Just to be sure, though, you should ask for samples and a trial! I’m not sure about Mac, but I know Sephora will do it for you!

@jo.lee:  What she said! But I don’t know bananas about mac. I bought mine at Sephora too~ my mua worked there parttime and had me come in to get a spot test done. Full disclosure though, I don’t think I have any fine lines to begin with. More of the spotting/scarring.

I have very oily skin. I wash it only once a day, at ngiht. I know that may sound counter intutitive, but when I was washing morning and everning, I was druing out my skin, so it felt strecthed when I smile, but to compensate, was producing a crazy amount of oil. I also gave up harsh cleansers, like those with salycic acis and benzoyl peroxide and went to a gentle cleanser. I cannot tell you how much these changes improved my skin. I still break out some, btu I have less redness and my skin is never tight and does not form those false wrinkels you are talking about. I mpoisturize at night with Clinique moisture surge and in the morning after my shower with BodyShop seaweed day cream.

For makeup, I wear MAC studio tech cream foundation, whcih I apply with a brush. I wear a MAC cream blush and BE warmth for bronzer. I prime and set with Urban Decay All-Nighter.

MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation is great for my dry skin. My forehead can get flaky in cold weather and this hydrates it perfectly. It goes on really smoothly and I can’t even feel it on. I didn’t wear it for my wedding day, as I just got it about a week ago. I had airbrushed foundation and that photographed really well.

Hi there! What exact products (face wash toner e.t.c)

Are you using? I’m an Mua when I run across this problem I strongly suggest drink plenty of water no alcohol for at least a week before your photos or wedding day.

I also highly reccomend airbrush makeup, this will set on top of your skin and not fill in the lines

I hope this helps!
