So for context, I don't wear makeup EVER!! My FH loves me natural because that's all he's known. My dilemma is, I want to have my eyes more dramatic on my wedding day for the sake of pictures and not looking like I look everyday of my life. So, is it possible to wear just eyeshadow, a little concealer and no foundation? Im not anti foundation, he is. Im getting frustrated with wanting to please both of us. Less is more in this case.

    Yes, you can. One of my bridesmaids considered just having my makeup artist do her eyes. The makeup artist had no issue with this.

    For my makeup trial my makeup artist used foundation on me. It didn’t look bad but it just wasn’t me. I only ever wear eyeshadow and concealer so I felt hyper aware of what was on my face. I mentioned that for the day of I would like as little face makeup as possible if anything maybe just concealer. I put my head on my fiance’s shoulder a lot and I would hate to rub makeup on his suit. It’s totally up to your preference! I have tried to dabble in BB creams or tinted moisturizers for a lighter coverage.

    Truthfully I would do a light base because I feel foundation can just even out the skin and cover blemishes. Maybe a bb cream or something? I will say this, I get the whole pleasing our men but I feel it is a look you need to feel happy with. If you want dramatic eyes then do it but maybe do a nude lipstick? I am doing natural too but may add the pop of color on my lips.

    I never wear makeup either. For my engagement photos I just did mascara and lipstick and it came out fine in photos! I was comfortable, felt like myself, and still looked “dressed up” compared to my no makeup. It’s totally doable to just wear eye makeup!

    I completely understand .... I’m there with you because I never wear makeup either and my fiancé likes the natural look too. I’m a everyday chapstick kind of girl, but for my engagement photos, I had my makeup done (full face, airbrush foundation, lashes, and more dramatic eye and lip) and I loved it. My fiancé loved it too and he was shocked that I didn’t look “casket sharp” which was what he was afraid of. Lol! I explained to the makeup artist that I wanted an elevated natural look and that’s exactly what she did. There’s a way to do what you want — even with a full face of makeup. And your fiancé will love it (he just doesn’t know it yet)!

    I regularly wear eye makeup with concealer and no foundation (because I hate the way it feels on my skin) and use blush and highlighter to blend a bit. I do like Glossier Skin Tint for minimal face coverage, you can still see freckles/real skin but it evens it out a bit. glossier is awesome for everything really.

    There are foundations that still give you a natural finish. I think you need to verbalize to your makeup artist what look it is you are going for and trust her on it. If she’s a good makeup artist, she will do a fine job on giving you what you want. I agree that the base evens everything bout and gives you a smooth finish. A dramatic eye with no foundation sounds unfinished. Do a trial and see how you feel Smiley smile

    Maybe try a bb cream instead of foundation

    I would talk to a makeup artist and get their opinion, and maybe do a trial. To me, it would look odd (on my face at least) to have super dramatic/intense eyemakeup and lashes then no (or minimal) skin makeup & blush & lips. It would almost look unfinished to me.
