I think the BB people just wanted you to buy THIER products but…

I wear Smashbox Photofinish foundation and Concealer

for primer:

Monistat Chaffing Gel … it’s the EXACT same as Smashbox Photofinish Primer but a whopping 6 bucks

I like Bridesmaid or Best Man foundation for my powder b/c I think it covers better than reg powder

and Bridesmaid or Best Man warmth for my cheeks w/ a light blush color (the cheap stuff) on the apples of my cheeks

MUFE HD Finishing Powder is GREAT.. but if you look at a couple other recent Make Up posts you’ll find a few other suggestions much cheaper. <– this will keep your face on ALL DAY =)

Miss Rainbow has a great post about application for DIY wedding make-up… I took the products I like (b/c I dont’ like MAC) took out the use of moisturizer (b/c it makes me too oily) and LOVE how my make-up turns out! =)

ACE YOUR FACE <–tutorial post!

I wore MUFE HD in a friend’s wedding a few weeks ago, and had no problems with the flash photography. I agree that the BB people were just trying to sell you on their product. Personally, I’d stick with the Makeup Forever. I swear by their foundations. I’ve never used one I didn’t LOVE. I also use the MUFE HD primer and my makeup stays on all day during my regular 11+ hr workday

That BB artist is totally full of crap. MUFE HD was formulated specifically for makeup artists, who work on sets with LOTS of lights and flashes. MUFE HD does *not* reflect, period. I hate shady sales people passing themselves off as “artists”… Grrr.

that looks more like an application issue. lol

Just use a nice fluffy powder brush, don’t over load the  powder, and you should be fine.

I used the HD finishing powder and I don’t think my make-up looked like that at all!

here’s our teaser pro pic & a cell phone front facing pic

(sorry for the huge pics) <— thought they might help ease you =)

nice link!

I think that what may have helped with me is that I use the Bridesmaid or Best Man Foundation powder AS my powder and it has more color than the normal translucent/pressed powder.

I have heard great things about ELF products as well =)

Oh and to add….. you’ll have this over your WHOLE face.. not just a swatch so you shouldn’t be able to see it like the “streaks” on the hand… that’s what I would think anyways.

I bought the mufe hd foundation and didn’t have it a week before I took it back. It made me super oily and shiny. And where I had a bit of dry skin it looked horrible…it made it even more noticeable. So back it went. I switched it out for the mat velvet foundation and had better results but it seemed to clog my pores. I’m now using Estee Lauder double wear ligh foundation and love it! I’ve gotten so many compliments on how flawless my skin looks. You might want to try it out. IMO the mufe didn’t live up to the hype.

I also bought MUFE HD foundation and finishing powder and was really disappointed with the foundation, so I am sticking with my Lancome Tient Idole Ultra. It gives good coverage, without looking cakey. I use the MUF HD finishing powder with it, and it looks great

Since you bought both, you can test them yourself at home. Just apply and take a picture with flash. I haven’t found the MUFE foundation to cause ghost face, but I did notice the setting powder can if you don’t apply it lightly or evenly enough.

With what yaneres said, I’ve heard that for finishing powders you don’t want to use a kabuki brush but something like a big fluffy brush. The kabuki apparently puts too much on but I’m not exactly sure of this.

I used it too and didn’t have problems. Here’s the link to our pro pics if you want to see some photographic evidence 🙂 If you don’t overload the product you should be fine. Instead of sweeping the brush all over my face, I kind of dab it on the skin. It seems like you use less product that way.
