I switch between liquid foundation, a tinted moisturizer, and loose mineral powder foundation on a regular basis. I’m thinking of using mineral makeup for my wedding day because of how natural looking it is, even though it doesn’t give as much coverage. Did anyone out there use mineral makeup on their wedding day? Thoughts??

My wedding day hasn’t come around yet but I do know that if you use a makeup sponge to apply the mineral powder makeup it’ll stay on throughout the day. Although I’m strictly talking about bare minerals. I know from experience using a sponge makes it last all day.

I’m also a big fan of mineral makeup and it’s what I wear every day, but I’m looking into different foundation for my wedding. I’ve been told that mineral makeup doesn’t photograph well because the ingredients reflect light and it can wash you out. That said, I’ve really never researched this, so if you’re going to use it for you wedding you might want to do some sort of photo-test beforehand or talk to a makeup artist/photographer to find out if that’s true.

I had my makeup done at MAC for our engagement pics, and she used mineral makeup. I loved it! I thought it looked great in the photos, and it didn`t feel too heavy.

It’s not enough in my opinion for wedding makeup. I’ve seen brides wear it and they look like they have nothing on by 9pm. You really do need something heavier for such a busy day. I wore mineral makeup for my e-pics and it was fine, too, but you sweat soooo much more on your wedding day.

Have you thought of using Urban Decay’s All Nighter Spray with the bare minerals? All Nighter is beyond great. I use it along with my mineral veil and I live in DC, it is very humid this time of year and my make up stays put all day and night.
Here is the link below..it is worth the investment.

I’ve worn mineral makeup for some long events at my work where I was photographed throughout the night and didn’t have any issues looking washed out BUT these were all without flash. With flash, it may wash you out.
Also, if you use a primer you shouldn’t have any problem with the makeup wearing off.

Although I feel you should wear something that is going to make you feel comfortable, be careful that the make up does NOT have SPF in it. Like lisaberry said, it will make you washed out looking in pictures. I am a make up artist and I never put an SPF on any brides because of this!

I’ve heard that sometimes mineral make up can show up super shiny in professional photos, so that’s something to keep in mind.
