( I'm bored, so i will be posting some stuff throughout here :) )Make up during pregnancy....

Who out there had to change their make-up during their pregnancy?

I'm frustrated! I have always used bare minerals. It's amazing for me, i get great coverage and it just looks fantastic.

Well, the past few days, my skin has been HEAVY, oily, and feels like my makeup is CAKED on. It's so gross. Just from my skin change and the extra boost of oils etc... must ALL be going to my face.

Im disappointed if i have to end up changing make-up

Anyone ever try bare minerals Matte??

  • I don't wear too much make-up to begin with, so no changes here.

  • I bet you are having a girl! Everything changed for the worse when I was pregnant with my Daughter. I looked fantastic when I was pregnant with my Son!

  • I don't really wear make-up so it was a non issue for me.

  • I switched to a good tinted moisturizer (elf has a good inexpensive one) with a light dusting of MAC translucent powder. Set with refreshing setting spray and go. NO oil

  • I only wear powder on my face because I hate the feel of any sort of foundation. I didn't have any problems with my powder. I had boys both times though, and I think there is something to what Paulie is saying.

  • I didn't have any skin changes with my sons or daughters.

  • I was too greasy and sweaty during my pregnancy for makeup to work well.

  • I have two boys and their due dates were two weeks off. Their birthdays are exactly a week apart (June 22 and June 29). It's great for handing down clothes because they always fall in the right season.
