@siimplycraziie: I agree with PP’s. Minimal makeup, something natural looking, so it’s still you, just with “touch ups”.

You don’t have to do anything you aren’t comfortable with. Most brides have makeup on but they don’t look like they’re wearing anything. If you don’t wear makeup ever, don’t let anyone force you into it.

@siimplycraziie: As far as freckles, what I do is skip the foundation. I don’t have a lot of freckles but I do have some on my nose, etc, and don’t want to cover them either. I think I look weird. Lol!

I use a powder only, just to even out my skintone and to get rid of some of the shine.

Anyways, I think DIYing a little make up is a fine option. I’m doing my own and I *am* a makeup person. I don’t like other people touching my face and if it’s messed up I’d rather it be MY fault than someone else’s. Lol.

You can always do a neutral eyeshadow, lightly tinted lip, mascara, and maybe some eyeliner. 🙂 Just a dressed up version of yourself.

Good for you for not wearing any makeup and not wanting to! I wish I could do that, but I feel like I have to, and I wish I didn’t. I have a good friend who got married last year and she is NOT a makeup person. She wore the tiniest bit on her wedding day and looked like herself, and very pretty. 

I don’t think you have to wear anything, but if you want, maybe go with a little concealer under your eyes if you need it, and a little loose mineral powder around your forehead, eyes, and nose to get rid of shine. If you feel comfortable with it, maybe try using mascara just to darken up your eyes a bit, and I’d say you’re fine. You don’t have to have pounds of makeup on to look beautiful, and if that’s not who you are, don’t worry about what other people say and just go au naturale! I’m sure you’ll look beautiful.

My advice is wear some makeup. Just don’t overdo it. I hate lots of makeup too, I understand. Although I do wear makeup everyday, just very minimal. This is what I would do. Put a nice face illuminating lotion on, then maybe a concealer to coneal any uneven spots, and under the eyes. Get a good eyelash curler, curl the lashes, put on a light coat of mascara, and recurl the eyelashes. I would also maybe wear a little bit of eyeshadow, although that isn;t really necessary. I would wear a nice translucent powder, a pop of pink blush, and a light pink lipstick. It will look so natural, almost not even there, but add a little bit of glamour.

If your not comfortable in makeup I would do very little. Maybe mineral makeup it is light and doesnt feel cakey etc. It also has amazing coverage. I also have a freckle face. Maybe just some mascara if anything. Just so your eyes etc pop in your pics. But at the end of the day if your not comfortable with that then dont wear any. Its nobodys place to say that you HAVE to wear any makeup.

A woman after my own heart! I never wear make-up because I feel like I don’t need it (not because I’m big headed, but I’m young, I don’t need to cover my face in stuff) so I wont be wearing make-up on my wedding. It doesn’t make sense. I think you should go with what feels most comfortable for you. Don’t let anyone pressure you into doing anything (including wearing makeup) you don’t want to.

Makeup can either change or enhance your features. It’s also an expression of yourself… so it’s not necessarily fake- it’s just not YOU or what your comfortable with. If you just stuck with the basics which just emphasize what you have I think you will be pleasantly surprised and pleased… and not feeling like a different person. So a nice base to even your skin tone, mascara, gloss and a soft blush with a very natural eyeshadow colour to contour your lids would do the trick. And just liner on the top lid, to blend the lashline/mascara.
