When it comes to makeup I normally just wear a little eyeliner and some tinted mineral shine powder….if I want to get REALLY fancy I use a little mascara and lipgloss. On my wedding day I asked to look natural, but I still got the full makeup treatment which included full eye makeup, full liquid foundation, powder, contouring and blush, and real lipstick complete with liner. When I first saw myself I thought my face looked ‘fat’ and ‘clown like’. I even timidly asked the makeup artist if she put too much on. She reassured me I looked great, and encouraged me to take a selfie to prove it. 

Turns out it was all in my head. All of my photos look very natural, and in person everyone said I looked like I was glowing and flawless. I even asked a few close to me (who I knew would be honest) if I was wearing too much makeup or looked fake…and they assured me I looked fine.

Plus at the end of the night when I was wiping it all off I realised she really didn’t use that much…I was just used to being practically ‘naked’.

Did your MUA set your make up with a setting spray after she finished applying everything? That can help with the cakiness issue as it sets any powders down. MAC has a spray called Fix Plus or Urban Decay has one too. I can’t think of the name of it. If you can get to an Ulta or Sephora, that might be worth looking into.
