My fave everyday & bridal foundation is MAC’s Studio Fix powder!

NARS firming foundation. I don’t even need firming foundation, but it’s the only foundation I have ever found that came in my exact skin tone (pale, peachy, slightly pink) and didn’t make me look ghostly pale or fake tanned.

Bare Minerals, I used to use MAC but its studio makeup so its really tough on your skin. I’m trying to use natural stuff and drink tons of water so I have AMAZAZING skin like a mexican porcelain doll lol.

when I wear foundation, I use bobbi brown skin – love it.  But like fiftyfootbride said above, I can’t wear it for bridal because it has SPF, so I am testing out others.  One I really like so far is LM oil-free; my BF’s cousin is a MUA and did her makeup for her wedding and used LM foundation, she looked AMAZING!!! I also second makeup alley – it’s been my go-to for anything beauty.

Someone explain to me why SPF in makeup is bad for bridals? I feel like I am missing out on something

@fifty: I know, everyone is all abuzz with MUFE but I can’t handle the heavier foundations, I feel like I am suffocating!  I will definitely have to go in for a trial at Sephora though, just to see what all the fuss is about – and who knows, maybe I’ll be able to actually wear the stuff for a few hours without freaking out.  The Smashbox primer is supposed to be the best; I’ve never worn primer before, so I think I am going to start out with that one … keep us posted on your experience!

@miss Yap:  SPF reflect light, so in flash photos your face looks like 12 shades lighter than your skin, and kinda washed out 🙁

i have the smashbox primer and *love* it. also, i use the clinique pore perfecting something-or-other that you put on after primer, and it feels like air, but makes pores go bye bye. oh, and it makes your face impervious to sweat. i’m not sure how healthy that is for all over, but for forehead and cheeks/nose it’s fantastic.

 

the spf is bad because it reflects more light and makes yo’ face look whiter in photos.

Ah! Now I know! Thanks.

But anyway, I favor BareMinerals. Or Prescriptives.
