- Wedding: November 2009
This recommendation is mostly for those brides who are getting married in a hot, humid location and/or doing their makeup themselves. I usually don’t wear a lot of makeup, especially when it comes to foundation since I have fairly sensitive skin and break out easily – I usually just use a mineral powder as my foundation. Since I had a Destination Wedding, I decided to do my makeup myself and was really concerned about having the right amount of coverage and about being shiny – we had an outdoor activity before the ceremony in hot and humid weather. When I started doing test runs for my wedding, I realized mineral powder wasn’t going to cut it and my pores were looking huge!
I eventually found Clinique Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector (and no, I don’t work for Clinique : ) and it worked like a charm. Originally I was going to put a powder or tinted moisturizer over it, but didn’t need to and it kept me from getting shiny ALL DAY. And I was outside in the sun and humidity for a good couple of hours. I highly recommend it for special events, however my one disclaimer is that I don’t recommend it for regular use for those with sensitive skin – I think it pretty much works by clogging your pores – but for only one day it did the trick!
