Hello! Had my hair and makeup trial this past weekend, and it went VERY well. I love the look. I don’t usually wear ANY makeup at all, so I went the traditional route. The makeup is very light, feels great, and lasted for hours.
My problem is, after an hour or two of smiling, every single crease and laugh line in my face is visible, and even enhanced by the makeup! My fiance noticed it pretty quickly (thanks a lot FI!). Is there any way to avoid this problem? Any special product or technique I could use? If there’s no way to prevent it, is there a way to touch it up so that the lines are less visible? I’m sure the makeup will look great in photos, but I want to look great in person, too! 😛

Alright, I know it’s a boring topic. Bumping anyway, just in case. 🙂

Better primer- and or a different foundation.
I find after 4-6 hrs I get some creases- but I’m a very expressive person- I would suggest seeing if you can play around with different foundations.
Did she use powder/mineral foundation? I steer clear of those- those crease worst on me- they are bad for people who are oily and or tend to sweat. I know people swear by them- but I refuse to use them. They look awful the quickest on me and they don’t wear well.

Did the MUA use a primer and setting spray? I notice creasing when I dont do those steps. I usually set it with a good amount of powder and then use a setting spray to take away the cakiness and give the finish a more natural appearance. Other than those things, I usually touch up with a little powder and blotting papers throughout the day if its needed to fix any oiliness or creasing. Hope that helps!

Primer, powder and setting spray just like mentioned above! You need a good moisturized face and a primer before you start. Then set the make up with powder and a setting spray. Blot and touch up as needed!!!
I don’t use primer or setting spray or setting powder in my day to day makeup because I just blot and blend when I have creases in my smile line. I don’t like using too many products, I just wear concealer and mineral makeup.
But for an event or day where you need makeup all day, get a good primer and setting spray 🙂

Id’ say- if you moisturize in advance- make sure whatever moisturizing procedure you are doing- you’re doing regularly.
THEN. Don’t slap it on and go to town with the foundation- you have to let the skin soak it in- wipe off any extra.
If you watch Wayne Goss he’ll deny primers- but I use them daily with no issue.
