lasting photo friendly makeup: primer vs intense foundation?

I'm getting married in february and I plan on doing my own makeup. I usually use a light liquid foundation but I'm gearing up to go shopping for wedding makeup.  would a primer with my usual foundation suffice?  Or should i look into upgrading to a longwear makeup for the day?

Notifiy me with emails too

Re: lasting photo friendly makeup

I think it depends on when you're planning to do your makeup during the day, and what time your wedding is at (and if there will be a lot of activity, like dancing). But in general, I think going with longwear makeup is your best choice. Especially with your foundation/powder, eyeshadow and lipstick. You definitely don't want your face melting off halfway through your reception!

Just make sure you do a few trial runs before your actual wedding day, in case you end up changing your mind or you discover any allergies to new makeup.
