On your wedding day, it is vital that your make-up stays looking fresh all day long. Well applied bridal make-up should only need a bit of powder and a lipstick touch up throughout the day – the rest should stay picture perfect all day long!
Skincare has an important part to play in long lasting make-up. A good quality moisturiser is key for a good skin base. Your moisturiser should hydrate your skin without being too greasy. My favourite moisturiser to use for brides with dry or sensitive skin is Embryolisse Lait-crème Concentrate Nourishing Moisturiser – It leaves the skin supple, smoothed, plumped and incredibly soft. For oily skin types I opt for Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel.
Primer is a must for make-up longevity. Primer creates the perfect base to apply makeup to. Not only will a primer help make you make-up last longer, but it will also smooth over fine lines and open pores. There are different primers for each skin type. I personally like the Smashbox Primer range, which includes primers that are oil free, colour correcting, illuminating and hydrating.
