Bare Escentuals

Does any one know of a make up artist who uses Bare Escentuals or mineral makeup? I have been wearing it for years and would prefer a professional on my big day? I will be getting married in Virginia Beach in September. Thanks!

    miles- I dont know about your area, but my photographer told me that using mineral make-up is not a good idea on your wedding day because it doesn't look as good in the pictures (bc it's more sheer and doesn't make your complexion look as good). Not sure if anyone else has heard this before.

    Thanks for the tip - I will definitely look into that. I wear it everyday and never noticed an issue in pictures but its something good to research.

    Not only that, the titanium dioxide (sunscreen) in the formula can make your face look whiter under flash photography.  Avoid any makeup with physical sunscreens (titanum dioxide or zinc oxide).

    I did my sisters makeup for her wedding and used all Bare Escentuals. I didn't notice any problems with the pictures.
