Wedding season is upon us once again! One trend emerging this year is for brides to create their own wedding day makeup look. It might sound daunting at first, but all you need are a few skincare and beauty essentials and some tricks of the trade to help you on your way!
Luckily, we’ve teamed up with celebrity makeup artist and bridal beauty expert Hannah Martin and content creator and bride to be Josie Fear of Fashion Mumblr to help make this process a breeze!
Read on to discover Hannah’s pro bridal beauty tips and explore Josie’s BY TERRY must haves to achieve that flawless bridal look.
1. How to combat flash back from photography.
Flash back from flash photography is every bride’s nightmare! It is caused by the SPF in makeup reflecting the light and creating a pale caste. Annoyingly it can’t be seen with the naked eye but is very obvious in pictures. On top of your foundation with a SPF and be sure to set your makeup in place with Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder to prevent this from happening.
2. How to ensure makeup lasts all day.
Ensuring your makeup lasts all day is a must and it really comes down to three things – how you prep your skin before makeup, your chosen foundation and how you set it. Be sure your skincare really suits your skin type i.e. hydrating enough for those with dry skin and not too rich for those with more oily skin. I love the Hyaluronic Global Face Cream to prep as it’s saturated with hyaluronic acid but feels really light. Using the Hyaluronic Hydra-Foundation will help too as it will ensure your skin stays hydrated throughout the day whilst creating the most beautiful looking semi-matte finish. Lock the makeup in place with the Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder being sure to focus on any areas your skin secrets oil or areas commonly known as hot spots – being the t-zone, chin, front of the cheeks and above the brows.
3. How to combat shine.
It’s always a good idea to have a few touch up products to hand on your wedding day so you can ensure your makeup stays looking fresh. Most brides are concerned about excess shine so make sure you have a Hyaluronic Pressed Hydra-Powder somewhere either in a clutch or placed at a convenient spot at your venue so you can quickly mattify any areas that may have started to shine a little. The joy of this powder is that thanks to the hyaluronic acid, the powder always looks fresh and never cakes.
