Mineral makeup (liquid) is the only makeup that doesn’t get cakey on my face. Everything else that I have tried cakes up and creases around my eyes and forhead creating lines, even when I’m 21. I love love mineral makeup, and heard all of the horror stories. Is there any way to wear it on the day of? Or is it compleely out?

i had tried bare minerals and is good stuff BUT preffer MAC, i love studio fix liquid foundation and concealer too.
i thing something like MAC (with more coverage) will be a better choice for your wedding makeup, since it will be next may, it can be hot…. I ALSO LOVE HOW MY MAC MAKEUP LOOKS ON PICTURES!!
i personally use concealer under and arround my eyes and forehed and i love it!

I use mineral makeup every day, it’s made in my home town a company called Tval(they ship), it is the only makeup that covers evenly and that I love…i use their eyeshadows too but lately have been using bellapierre mineral eyeshadows because I got such a good deal on two nine-stacks

since my photographer is also my MUA, we did a test today with MAC mineralized powder and a flash, and it came out fine…
but maybe the mineralized powder is a bit different than true mineral powder.

I recommend not doing mineral makeup on the day of, i think youll find it will come off and possibly on your new husbands tux if you lean on him. Mineral makeup, in my opinion, doesnt photograph that great. I agree with the other ladies on here that mac studio fix is good, and when you apply the foundation try using your fingers( i know this sounds gross) but it might help avoid the creasing. Good luck!

I have worn everyday minerals for years and I love it but my MUA says the problem is that mineral makeup reflects light and with flash photography will be an issue. I am doing airbrush just for my wedding day and that stuff did not budge!

If you are having a daytime wedding with tons of windows for natural light or everything outside, you don’t really have to worry much about mineral make-up because there won’t be a need for a lot of flash. But if it’s nighttime and/or mainly artificial lighting for your wedding, you may have an issue. I am a Bare Minerals girl for everyday wear, but when we’re talking photography, I am all about my Smashbox.

Have you tried using primer? It fills in the lines and creases on our faces so that you have a smooth palette before applying makeup. Less or no makeup buildup in cracks and crevices. There are expensive primers out there but if you use Monistat Chafing Gel (have to get over the weirdness of that!) it’s the same plain active ingredient as $35+ primers. And it’s $7 for 4x the amount. PS, I also don’t find the coverage as thick as I need with mineral makeup. I use Smashbox normally but doing airbrush for wedding.

I’m using bare minerals and did so for our engagement shoot. I think it came out great. I didn’t even know there was an issue until I read about mineral vs. other makeup. I’ve used mineral makeup for 7 years – no sense in switching it up now!

I use mineral makeup for every day wear, but I’ll be going with airbrush makeup for the day of.

I’m having mineral make up done. BUT I’m allergic toalot of make up. I LOVE MAC and Stila but it destroyed my pores and took forever for my esti to get me back to normal. I use Hard Candy makeup set after its all applied and it stays for hours and hours. Mascara I use Fiberwig or Blic, can’t cry that stuff off and no bleeding 🙂
