    I would, at the very, very least, wear some mascara, a bit of eyeshadow, and a gloss on your lips. It’s very easy to look washed out in photographs if you don’t add a little something to bring out your features.

    Just use waterproof products. I don’t know any foundation that would run down your face or get on your dress as long as you’re not touching your face and then your dress.

    I don’t think it’s an aboslute necessity, but if anything is a special occasion your wedding day is. And with so many pictures and so many eyes on you it seems worth it for that day.

    I remember reading a photographer’s tip that if you don’t ever wear makeup, you should at least wear foundation, a bit of blush and mascara (however, they don’t suggest that for guys, so I don’t get the big deal! :P).

    If you have great skin, but are worried about crying, I would at least wear eyelashes (fake or extensions if you don’t mind the price) and lip gloss/lipstick.

    I also hope you don’t find this offensive, but I’ve only met two women in my life who I thought looked great in photos with no makeup, and they were gorgeous in person. I voted for at least “light” makeup. Then again, it’s your wedding, and if you think you’ll look fine w/o, do it. 😉

    Yeah, I would wear at least a little bit of makeup.  I agree, you don’t want to look washed out in photographs.

    Perhaps stop at somewhere like a Sephora or Nordstrom on the day and have a clerk at a good makeup shop do you up very lightly with good product. They should know what to use to really help with that, since I imagine they get a lot of wedding day traffic!

    If you want to try a light make up look, maybe go with waterproof mascara, a little white or beige shimmering eye shadow right at the inner corners of the eyes (it looks really good in photographs and gives a bright eyed look), some lip stick or lip gloss, maybe even some Chap Stick (it gives a little shine but not a lot), blush for a little color and if you don’t really need foundation, maybe a translucent matte powder.

    Do you wear primer under your foundation? That should help it stay in place. I use Makeup Forever HD primer and it does wonders.

    If you want to wear a little makeup but are just worried about it running if you cry, then (as PP have said) don’t worry — you can def find some great waterproof stuff. 

    If you don’t want to wear makeup because you just don’t want to wear makeup, then don’t — pictures be damned! You have to feel comfortable. I wore almost not makeup at my wedding, against the advice of all my friends, but I don’t regret it.
