Hello ladies – I don’t normally wear makeup, but will be doing so on my wedding day. What brands do you recommend that are good for pictures? I don’t want to look all “made up” under the flash of the camera – i’ve seen some pictures – even of celebrities, that look much lighter in the facial area than they do anywhere else, and I can only surmise that it’s because of the makeup that they are wearing. It this a powder/foundation sort of thing? I don’t speak makeup, so I honestly have no idea – I just want to look fantastic come June 4th!!!! Thanks in advance!

I haven’t used it but I heard Make up Forever Hi-Def foundation is great for pics and they have lots of colors. I would stay away from mineral make-up as it tends to make us look ashy.

I used Mac makeup & it was great…but really it depends on the makeup artist just as much if not more than the makeup. Maybe go for a trial with a MUA and then take some pictures to make sure that is not an issue.

Makeup Forever is a really great brand. I also recommend bringing along a camera (or a friend w/a camera) to take photos if you do a trial just to make sure your concerns are addressed.

@souliganprincess: I use MAC NC17 pressed powder. It’s really light (not a foundation) so it doesn’t look heavy. It provides minimum coverage but it makes you look polished. I love it, I wear it everyday.

My sister and I both used Make Up Forever HD makeup that we purchased from Sephora. We both did free consultations there and I practiced, practiced, and practiced some more so that I could do our make-up the day of her wedding. It lasted all day and we only needed to freshen our lips.
…and I think our faces match the rest of our bodies
