How can I get my makeup to last from ceremony to reception?
A: Pick long wearing products that don’t crease, fade or run. Don’t use facial oils, rich eye cream and slippery serums. Use a good primer suited to skin type. Studio Fix + is a good tool to refresh and zing your makeup throughout the day. The travel size is handy by MAC - £8.00. Lastly, when you’re applying your eye shadows and blushers, build colour, you’ll get a more blended look that lasts.
How do I touch up my makeup after a teary exchange of vows?
A: Blot, don’t rub. Use eye drops, if you’re eyes are red and a cotton bud should take away any mascara or eye liner that’s moved (which shouldn’t do, if you’re using waterproof products). Waterproof eye - Liquidlast by MAC and Screenface do amazing waterproof mascaras!
To correct the face, tap in more concealer to brighten the eyes and tone down redness around the mouth and nose with a full coverage Touch up Stick by Bobbi Brown - £18.00
I think I want to do my own makeup for the wedding. Do you have any tips?
A: Always allow enough time before the wedding, at least three hours, try makeup trials on yourself and have a friend snap some photos in various lighting.
Why Can’t I wear SPF on the big day?
A: The same ingredients that block the sun’s rays also reflect the camera’s flash.
