Combination Skin Wedding Makeup

I'm getting married in 8 weeks. I have a professional makeup artist who does a great job, as far as technique, but I'd rather use my own makeup. I'm looking for something that will moisturize my chin and forehead areas, then mattify everything else for a primer. Also looking for a foundation that is full coverage, will blur large pores, won't dry or over-grease my face, but will mattify. Then a finishing spray that will keep everything firm through humidity and sweat. I use Urban Decay for my eyelid primer, but I still get smudges and makeup that won't stay put after a day of work. 


Any and all suggestions would be great.

I'd definitely recommend Rimmel's Stay Matte primer. It's cheap and works very well, as well as covering up my dry patches and pores. I'm not sure how moisturizing it is, but it doesn't do any harm or drying out either.


For the setting spray, I use De-Slick by UD and it mattifies my face and makes a noticeable difference throughout the day in my oil appearance.

Make sure you moisturize well under all your makeup! I like layering my moisturizer (an oil like jojoba first, then cream overtop). I'm not sure what primer is moisturizing and mattifying at the same time, but you could always use two? Just go in to the store and ask for some samples of different ones and try applying them in different areas. There are tons of different full coverage foundations - KVD makes a really popular one, as does Estee Lauder with their Doublewear line. I like Urban Decay's Stay All Day finishing spray to finish off my makeup and make it last all day
