Bridal Beauty: Flawless Foundation

This is the first post of more to come in our "Bridal Beauty" series here on our blog!

Hey there, all my beautiful brides-to-be! I wanted to share a few tips and tricks with you. I'm no make-up artist, however, I do consider myself a make-up junkie.. So I'd like to say I know a thing or two :)

Today's post is all about how to create that sought-after flawless skin every bride wants on her wedding day. Below I've assembled types of products, as well as actual product examples, that help to enhance a bride's natural beauty. 

  • Primer: One of the most important steps. Prepares skin for make up. Allows effortless foundation application. Tip - look for a long-lasting and water-resistant primer. Trick - let primer sit for 5 minutes before applying foundation.
    • How do I pick the proper primer based on my skin type? (key words)
      • Dry skin type: moisturizing, hydrating, illuminating [Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Hydrating]
      • Combination skin type: smoothing, equalizing, blurring [Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer]
      • Oily skin type: mattifying, oil control, pore minimizing [Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional] 
  • Foundation: Achieving a flawless complexion is one of the biggest bridal concerns.  Tip - do not use a foundation on your wedding day that contains SPF (translates unflattering on high definition cameras). Trick - apply foundation with a brush then beauty sponge to pick up excess product.
