Good wedding foundation

I have my makeup trial in a few days and I need to bring my own foundation (my makeup artist  supplies everything else). So, I need ideas for a good foundation that will photograph well and will stay on all day and will stand up to the heat. I would prefer one that I could find in a department or drug store...I'd rather not order one online, but certainly could if that's best. Thanks!

Re: Good wedding foundation

  • It's a little pricey, but my go-to foundation is Makeup Forever HD Foundation. It is sold at Sephora. It's a bit heavy, but I've always worn heavy makeup so I'm used to it. The coverage is AMAZING.
  • I second the makeup forever hd. I purchased it for myself I'm doing my own makeup and have tested it out for weddin related activities: showers, engagement party, etc. it gives GREAT coverage and my skin looks great in all the photos so far. If you can swing the price, it's worth it. They also have a box set that comes with the foundation, primer, powder and brush. That's what I bought. I think it was 8090 dollars and the brush alone is around 40 bucks. It was worth it to me.
  • I use Lancome Teint Idole.  It lasts for ever and has a really great natural finish.  It's easy to build coverage without looking masky too.  It's about 45 dollars. 

  • I bought Smashbox foundation and so far I'm liking it. I normally don't wear any foundation so it feels like there's a lot on my face, but it LOOKS good so that's all I really care about.

    I also used the Makeup Forever HD Foundation from Sephora. I felt like although it was a little bit heavier than some foundations, you can apply it minimally and then build on it if you'd like. I never did by a brush or anything for it, just applied it with a wet make up sponge per the instructions of the girl that helped me at sephora!
  • I used all urban decay products & my makeup stayed on all day even in 95 degree heat. Here is the foundation i used:

    I also used their 24/7 concealor & all nighter setting spray (they have a travel size one too) and I only had to do one minor touch up to my face before the reception. I did a lot of crying that day & my makeup didn't budge. Awesome products!!!!

  • Ditto Smashbox. I used it on my wedding day and looked flawless for the 18 hours it was on.

  • I use Maybelline FIT, and it works great for me.  I have oily skin, and makeup wears off easily, but I haven't had a problem with it.  I don't need touchups nearly as often, and it has a very light feel to it (and even has a fresh powder scent).
