Hi, I usually wear Revlon superstay for work which I like but I'm looking for new recommendations. I am renewing my wedding vows on a beach in California later on in the year so need something that will stay put and not be a mess in the heat! I have oily skin which is light in tone, and enlarged pores. Any that people can recommend? Would hate to splash out and find it doesn't last.
A friend got married recenetly, and she raved about the urban decay setting spray type thing that she wore on her wedding day. She used all of her usual make up and then 'set' it using this urban decay mist thing. You spray it (its an aerosol) on your face in a Z shape, and it sets your make up for the whole day.
I have been using Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour full coverage foundation. I have quite oily skin and it has lasted well and the brush it comes with means it is super easy to apply, blends really well and looks natural on the skin. It is oil free as well. The only issue is that there are not a lot of colours in the range. It is a US brand so not easy to find in the UK (I get mine from QVC so you can use it and return if you don't like it). However if you have time before the big day then you may want to set aside some time when you are in the US to visit a few beauty stores and try out some ranges in the hot sun and it will be cheaper as well. The setting spray sounds goods though!
Second the urban decay setting spray- you can get a travel size bottle for around a tenner which would do the entire trip. It really is the business. There's a proper review of it here if you're interested.
