We asked Somerset make-up artist Jane Dare of Eye Do Makeup how to keep your wedding make-up looking great all day...
Here are my top tips to keeping your beauty look flawless all day...
- Skincare prep is key. A regular routine and exfoliating twice a week will give a smooth finish. Poorly hydrated skin draws moisture from your foundation, leaving you with uneven patches of pigment.
- A quality primer blends out imperfections and creases, making make-up last longer. Choose oil-free or water-based to prevent slipping and always prime your eyelids.
- Use lightweight powders to match your liquid foundation. Build both up in thin layers and choose a cream blusher. Stipple products on to your face using a buffing brush. This technique locks products to the skin. Use a setting spray to finish.
- Dip your eyeshadow brush in priming spray before applying product – especially with shimmery eyeshadow. This holds down the pigment and gives a natural, glossy effect. Opt for waterproof mascara and eyeliner; I recommend Stila eyeliners.
- For lips, use a translucent powder before your liner. Then, apply lipstick with a brush. Blot and repeat this several times. A touch of gloss in the centre of your lips will power up the look.
- Pat translucent powder into oily areas during the day.
