In my line of work, I need makeup that lasts. If I applied makeup to one of my bride clients, and it didn’t stay fresh and amazing through endless hugs and kisses, cake eating {smashing}, or if it didn’t last until well after the last dance? Well, let’s just say they would be throwing things far worse than birdseed or petals at me. Longevity is the name of the game baby. Marriage is a lasting commitment {unless you’re a celeb} your wedding makeup should be too. Which is why I was so delighted to discover M.A.C. Pro Longwear Foundation. In a word? Amah-zing. This liquid foundation glides onto the skin effortlessly, smoothing over your imperfections and dries down to a natural, fresh finish. Then it stays there. All.Damn.Day. Seriously. I personally don’t have “oily” skin I am more of a normal to combination with the usual t-zone shine come midday. I usually touch up with this or this. Not today {er, yesterday}. I wore this foundation all day yesterday and it still looked like when I first applied it that early morning when I washed my face much later that night. Yes lovelies, I think I’m in love and it just got serious. As in this has serious lasting potential and is about to become a staple in my makeup kit. I love the pump {less mess, and more hygienic}, I love the sheer to medium coverage and the low SPF {high SPF is not what you want for photography makeup that’s why Bare Minerals is out of the question-among other reasons}. I love that it controls oil while keeping the skin feeling soft and normal and it’s advertised to last for 15 HOURS. Whether you are a bride or not, or if you’re like me and are of the stubborn mentality and you think that if you sacrifice sleep for makeup, it had better last all day, then this foundation is a must try and buy.

Or you could get it for free if you enter to win my M.A.C. giveaway. I’m offering up a personalized foundation, eye shadow, eye liner, lipstick, and lipgloss all in a cute makeup bag.

    I”ll have to check it out… I used Smashbox before but it made me look a little too yellow/orange. I’m using Revlon colorstay and I love it.

    They gave me a sample of this last time I went to MAC and I LOVED it. I have the same problem as you, normal with oily T-zone and I did not have that problem when I used it.
