I need some Bee help! My wedding is a 7 pm ceremony with reception following. I have to travel about 3 hours from my house to check into my hotel room in the city where the wedding will be at.
I REALLY want my hair and make-up done by my normal hairstylist which means I would have to get it done before I left for the drive to my wedding site.
I’m thinking the following time line: 10:30 to 1:00 hair and makeup, pick up cake and drive 3 hours to site, check into room and minor set-up, relax time and 7 pm ceremony.
I am VERY concerned that my make-up will not look “fresh” having had it on that long especially in the summer.
What is your opinions on this, bees?

Ok I know this will sound strange but… use Monistat anti-chafing cream as a foundation primer. It contains silicone (the main ingredient in the expensive primers) which provides a 2 fold protective layer: 1) keeps your skin hydrated by locking in moisture; 2) keeps your foundation fresh by providing a barrier between your skin and your foundation. Your makeup will look flawless all day long. Another tip I learned recently was to use the toilet seat protectors to wick away the oil on your face. If for some reason the Monistat fails you, simply press the protector against your face and it will soak up any oils.
Oh yeah, AC IN THE CAR ALL THE WAY!

While my initial reaction was heck no!!!!! don’t wait that long in the summer! I have never heard of using monistat LMAO that’s awesome!!! Maybe try it on a day before the wedding and sit in the car with the heater on for 20 min or so just to see? I dunno, I never wear foundation so when I do I sweat on my face when it’s like 50 degrees outside so I wouldn’t trust it for me.

I have to admit I had to read your post twice about the Monistat! But I do appreciate the advise. I will try the Monistat before the wedding and sure that I doesnt irritate my skin, etc.
Thanks for the advice!

ehhhhhhh don’t use the monistat unless you have used it before. before the % of the ingredents can be pore clogging and break you out, BUT if you try it before and it doesn’t break u out, definitiely use that stuff!!

monistat will work because the ingredients are similar to other face primers but it does contain other things that may make you break out. i bought it because it’s cheaper but in the end, i wanted clear skin more than staying power. plus clear skin means i can wear lighter foundation.
i heard that airbrush makeup is supposed to last until you wake up the next morning. a few friends had it done for their weddings so i booked a makeup artist to airbrush me n my girls.
