Girls I need help!
I am overwhelmed with what to do about my makeup for my wedding day. (August 4th so think hot and humid!) I usually don’t wear that much, under eye concealer (you will see in the picture I need it!!), powder, blush, and mascara is my normal. I need advice for products that will last all day but won’t cost me a ton (we are talking pretty cheap, I can’t afford to buy things that cost more than $20). So you see my dilemma. I have oily skin and larger pores on my nose and cheeks with slight acne (basically I’m a mess!) I want a lighter eye shadow (I have green eyes if that helps but I also have really creased lids if that makes sense), a pinky/mauve lips(?) that needs to stay there all day, and of course primer/foundation/concealer.
I’m post a picture of me in my dress so you get an idea (sorry about the scary no makeup! You can see I need something that will control the shine.) As well as a normal day picture for me with my normal makeup (which yet again sorry the color is weird on it. The under eye part is not normally that light and the picture is more yellow in general).
Thanks! I can use all the help I can get!

What is your total make up budget? 20$ for everything or just not more than $20 for 1peice?
I ask because you can go to Sephora (it theres one close to your venue) and they will do everything for you from primer, pore minimizer, all make up and a finishing spray. (that will make you makeup stay all day even with sweat and humidity) and all you have to do is buy $50 worth of products. They will even give you a free consultation before the big day. I would recommend looking into that. Just give them a call. If you have a JC Penny near you, alot of them have added Shephora inside them.

@Murphymcnasty: I would like to keep it around $50 total. I have looked into this some but the closest one (Sephora, JC Penny, etc) is 45 minutes away 🙁 Have you tried or heard anything of BareMinerals and how it works?

Here ya go, beautiful!
List of what I used on TAAZ
overgirl 4 kit country woods-5 dollars
fresh complexion concealer-natural beige-5.00
Clean pressed oil free powder-cover girl-Creamy natural 5.00
I recommend a mattyfying primer-this is where most of your money will go-good ones are 15 bucks n up but worth it as they will prep your skin for the powder. IE: Smashbox mattifying primer
DO NOT use any liqud on your fae whatsoever.
Lip liner in natural-4.00
Lipstick-Copper bliss lip outlast Cover girl-8.00
Black eye pencil-1.00
If you can afford oil blotting towelettes, would also recommend
