Whether you are getting married this summer or a guest at a wedding, you want your make up to last through the tears, kisses, champagne and dancing. Here are some products that I’ve used again and again on my brides for beautiful make up that lasts:
ELIZABETH ARDEN 8 HOUR SKIN PROTECTANT CREAM
Keep it in your bag and apply to lips regularly for the week leading up to the big day to make sure lips are soft and smooth. Don’t bother with the lip versions, instead get ‘The Original’ formulation as the others just aren’t as good.
Smashbox do great primers for different skin types, helping the make up to last longer. Apply sparingly.
BOBBI BROWN SKIN FOUNDATION
I love this sheer foundation that suits almost all skin types and has a great shade range.
BOBBI BROWN CORRECTOR AND CONCEALER
A hardcore concealer combo that is truly transforming. Set with powder.
LAURA MERCIER SECRET CAMOUFLAGE
To cover any blemishes.
MAC PRO LONGWEAR PAINT POT and MAC PAINTS.
Pick a shade similar to your skin to give a lovely even base colour that acts as a primer too. I love Painterly, Layin’ Low and Sublime Nature.
MAYBELLINE EYE STUDIO LASTING DRAMA GEL LINER 24 H
In Brown or Black gold.
BOBBI BROWN LONG-WEAR CREAM SHADOW STICK
Layer over the eyeliner for soft definition – gorgeous colours range.
SHU UEMURA EYELASH CURLERS
GIORGIO ARMANI EYES TO KILL WATERPROOF MASCARA
It really is waterproof and keeps the curl from the lash curlers like no other mascara I’ve ever used.
ARDELL: DURALASH INDIVIDUAL LASHES
Apply 4 or 5 to the out corners of each eye.
DANIEL SANDLER WATERCOLOUR BLUSH
In a natural peachy/pink tone all over the cheekbone area, followed by…
BOBBI BROWN POT ROUGE or STILA CONVERTIBLE COLOR
…on the apple of the cheek : don’t be afraid to go for a bold pop of colour.
