Wedding Makeup

What kind of foundation are you wearing/wore on your wedding day? I’m looking for something that won’t make me look oily/shiny, something with more coverage. It will be hot on our wedding day. I’m leaning towards fenty, but I don’t like how it feels thick and cakey after a few hours. Anyone have any suggestions?

    If I end up doing my own I'll be using the CoverFX power play foundation. I love how buildable it is!

    I'll probably use makeup forever ultra hd, photographs well and feels great on.

    My favorite is tarte amazonian clay foundation. Its buildable so you can have light or heavy coverage. I have tried a thousand foundations in the 20 years I have been doing my make up, they all leave my face oily or cakey after a few hours. Everyone's skin is different so you just have to try them. If you go into sephora, they will color match you and give you a couple different samples to take home and try!

    Do you have brand that you live by today?

    I’ve been using Estée Lauder Double wear for more than 20 years. I swear by it, I’ve tried many throughout the years and always go back to EL.
    I’d suggest finding a foundation that works for you, also find a good primer and setting spray. I use Smashbox water primer as it works as a primer and setting spray.
    The secret to long lasting makeup is allowing it to fully dry between applications.

    I’m not quite sure, I haven’t had my makeup trial yet. For everyday I just wear a tinted moisturizer...I don’t do full blown concealer typically. So this will be different I suppose. I want something that will make me glow though. What would you suggest?

    I finally caved and tried IL makiage and I love it! I pair it with a elf matte putty primers, a nyx setting powder, and the urban decay all nighter setting spray. I tend to get really oily and this is now my holy grail of keeping the oil away

    I tried out Il Makiage recently and was very impressed compared to others. I couldn't even feel I was wearing anything.

    Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation is amazing. BUT, my absolute favorite is Marc Jacobs Remarcable foundation. Full coverage, light weight, lasts all day and doesn't get cakey (unless you apply too much - a little goes a long way)! Both are matte and last long in hot weather.
