Prep The Skin
The key to getting good looking make-up that won’t budge is having your skin in the best condition possible. It’s important to ensure your skin is feeling happy and healthy if you want that natural glow, so ensure you have a good routine set up well before the wedding. And if you feel like treating yourself why not get a facial (though not too close to the big day!)

Know the Ingredients
Our expert make-up artists know the importance of the wedding photos and so to avoid the dreaded flashback in photographs they avoid products with a high SPF, silica content or mineral make-up which can all cause the infamous “ghost face”.

Even if you’re opting for a natural look you still want to look flawless, so to achieve a skin like finish use a light to medium foundation and apply a product with heavier coverage on any areas that might need the extra help. Layering is also key to long lasting make-up; for instance lightly applying a cream blusher and then a powder over the top will keep you looking naturally flushed all day.

You want your make-up to last all the way from the ceremony to the dance floor, so using products such as eye shadow primers are ideal for making sure the beautiful eye look that’s created doesn’t move an inch.

Who doesn’t love a bit of highlighter? It’s a great way to add a healthy glow to your complexion, but whether you’re using liquid or powder avoid anything with visible chunks as these can sometimes look a bit odd on camera.
And voila! Above is a photo of our lovely bride Sally, who looked naturally radiant all day.
