For most days I use BareMinerals for all products except YSL mascara:

  • Lipstick/Lipgloss –Bare Minerals Buxom Babes (gloss) & MAC stain (wedding)
  • Foundation — Bare Minerals (daily) & Smashbox (photos)
  • Concealor — Bridesmaid or Best Man or Stila
  • Powder — HD (from Sephora) & Bridesmaid or Best Man mineral veil (more subtle)
  • Blush — Bridesmaid or Best Man
  • Eye Shadow — Bridesmaid or Best Man or Laura Mercier (plum?color)
  • Mascara — YSL
  • Nail Polish — OPI (many colors, nomad’s dream, 20 candles on my cake, I’m not really a waitress, red)

 I don’t claim to be an expert, but I do like the HD items I got from sephora for my e-pics as well.

I don’t wear makeup ever but my face has broken out in red splotches months before my wedding. I got some Bare Escentals and it covered the redness perfectly for my wedding. I continue to use it to cover the redness.
