I’d also recommend figuring out what you’re allergic to, assuming you do want to wear makeup. Otherwise, Clinique isn’t that crazy expensive compared to other wedding costs if buying a few products would make you feel more confident – and it’s possible you could also find a MUA who already has products from brands that don’t irritate you. If going makeup free, maybe getting a facial and eyebrow shaping the week before (if you can tolerate those), and/or doing a lash/brow tint the week before, would help you feel pretty.

Do natural stuff cause a migrane too? I usually wear minerals (Bare Minerals is one brand) or stuff that has natural ingredients (check iHerb.com). Could you visit a Health Store and try their stuff or talk to their staff?
I second tinting your eyelashes.
What about seeing the Dr for a tablet or medication that you could take for migranes – could you take it in the morning of your wedding to prevent it?
Hope you find something. Migranes are awful – I’ve been getting them more lately and it seems to be triggered by certain smells and even certain alcohol combinations (cocktails are a no-go for me).
PS: I wonder if you can wear Clinique because it is frangrance free…?

Hey I have a similar problem to you! I figured out it was gluten in makeup (even trace amounts) that was making me sick. So I have to email every makeup company before trying to use them.
Im trying to think of some inexpensive natural brands you could try. It’s probably not gluten for you, but I wonder if it’s some chemical ?
Honeybee gardens is quite inexpensive and natural. Also tarte has 40% sales once in awhile if you sign up for their site you can see it
