As we head into the warm summer wedding season I wanted to share some of my favorite products with you for long lasting makeup.

All of the products we use are developed from a studio stand point, and you can be assured these are perfect products for flash photography.  Also, it is really best to avoid sunscreen on your wedding day (use it everyday though!) especially products with Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide that can cause your face to have a white cast with flash photography.


  1. Use a Primer. I really like Makeup Forever HD primer. It really helps to prep skin and keeps the makeup on.

2. Use a good foundation. I like Makeup Forever HD foundation it photographs beautifully and stays on all day.

3. What about shine? If you are really oily you can dab a little anti shine on problem areas. I recommend Smashbox  Anti-shine

4.  I don’t want to sound like a broken record but Apply a Primer. Try Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer potion.

5. Worried about tears? Try Makeup Forever aqua eyes-this liner is made especially for those tearful events. My favorite to use because you can use a brush is Bobby Brown Gel Liner.

6. If you really want Lip Staying Power try MAC Pro Longwear Lip Colour.

If you don’t go for a long wearing lip product then make sure you have a gloss or lipstick with you to touch up with before photos and after eating.

7. For extra added Setting Assurance, this Model in a Bottle is perfect to keep everything in place. Just a few sprays will really set your makeup.
