RHIA ON TWP | Choosing a Foundation Texture on the Big Day

See the original post on Toronto Wedding Professionals, your resource for everything weddings!
There are several different foundation textures out there to help put your best face forward on the Big Day. Whether you’re looking for lighter or heavier face coverage, rest assured there is a foundation type out there for you. Yet with so much selection between all the brands and textures, the amount to choose from can be overwhelming! Check out these foundation types to find your perfect match:

Tinted Moisturizer

  • gives slight colour and moisturizes in one
  • provides minimal coverage of all foundation types
  • best-suited for women with clear skin

Mineral Make-up

  • light to medium coverage
  • use with a kabuki brush to build up product
  • best for women with clear skin


  • very popular foundation texture for bridal make-up
  • light to medium buildable coverage
  • suitable for all skin types
  • a light layer of liquid foundation was used in the pictures here, as we wanted to ensure the bride’s gorgeous freckles remained visible!


  • similar to liquid foundation, but with air whipped into it creating a lighter, whipped formula
  • light to medium buildable coverage
  • great product for mature women, as the light formula is not as prone to setting into fine lines

Powdered Foundation

  • leaves a powdery finish, but with more coverage due to the built-in foundation
  • light to medium coverage
  • great for oily skin, but suitable for all skin types

Stick/Cream Foundation

  • offers maximum amount of coverage
  • best for normal to dry skin types, but can look too slick on oily skin
