Information & Advice
Published August 2009
Your choice of shades and application technique will be key to your bridal make up look. Not only should it look fantastic but it also needs to be photo-friendly and stay fresh-looking throughout the day and evening.
For glowing, photo-perfect skin let us help you find your perfect foundation shade. Our iMatch™ Foundation Finder provides you with a fool-proof way to find your shade, your finish and your match.
The wedding day make up you choose will depend on how much product you normally wear, your wedding dress, and the time of year. A spring/summer wedding will require a lighter textured foundation, such as Double Wear Light which stays put for up to 15-hours but is light in texture and coverage, with a powder on top to ensure you stay shine free. An autumn/winter wedding calls for bronzer for added colour, and a foundation such as Double Wear Stay-in-Place Make Up, providing up to 15-hours medium/full coverage.
Your bridal look will help transform you into a vision of radiance for your wedding day and beyond. A Classic Look will achieve a sophisticated, timeless appearance, while a Dramatic Look will bring beautifully intense shades to define your lips and eyes, without ever feeling or looking heavy.
Don't forget your nails – on your wedding day a lot of attention will be paid to the bride's new wedding ring and hands. First, exfoliate and moisturise your hands. Then use a base coat treatment to strengthen and protect your nails, followed by the nail lacquer of your choice, and finish with a top coat to help your nail varnish to last longer.
Skin care preparation is vital to achieve a flawless, natural look that lasts all day. If your skin is not properly moisturised and prepared, your make up will not last as well.
Perfume has the magical ability to evoke and make a lasting impression. The fragrance you choose will help you remember that special time for years to come.
