I am not usually a makeup wearer but I do moisturize and use a daily light tint but I need a good foundation for the wedding. What do you usually wear and does it last all day without looking orange or greasy? 

Also, I need a mascara that is truly waterproof. I know me and I'll start tearing up the minute I get to the church.

I don't do foundation very often because it's usually so frickin' hot here, but I have been a fan of beauty balm - it's moisturizer with a light tint.  It doesn't feel heavy like foundation often does and does a nice of evening out the skin so you can do your make-up.  The kind I've been using is made my Garnier but there are several brands now that have it.

I agree with Jean re: asking at a makeup store. I use a Bobbi brown foundation, but it's heavy coverage for my leopard-like spots. :smileysurprised:. I have to use a powder because it is thicker, and it DOES feel a bit heavy. I would think you could do a YouTube search on wedding makeup and find user recommendations?

I just wear a tinted moisturizer.  I asked at Sephora about waterproof mascara that wouldn't run when I work out and they recommended one. It might be a good bet because it would be a pain to try to find a specific one at a store.
