Say “I do” with your most glam­orous self

Style Magazine - - Experts - BY SARAH SCHRODTER, PURE GLAM­OUR MAKEUP ARTISTRY

There are so many things to or­gan­ise for your wed­ding and a list as long as your arm is quickly form­ing. It will be one of the most pho­tographed days of your life, so here are some ex­pert tips to make sure you look pic­ture per­fect.

Find a good artist – Not only will they help you choose a look that suits, they’ll have the knowl­edge of prod­ucts and ap­pli­ca­tion to make cer­tain your makeup lasts for hours, pho­to­graphs beau­ti­fully and looks stun­ning in per­son. Al­ways check out the artist’s port­fo­lio of re­cent brides prior to book­ing.

Have a trial – Make sure you have a full makeup ap­pli­ca­tion done (in­clud­ing lashes if you de­sire) and wear it for the day. Take pic­tures in nat­u­ral light and with flash to see how it pho­to­graphs. Fol­low up with your makeup artist and let them know of any changes that need to be made.

Avoid makeup trends – These images will be cher­ished for a life­time so try to avoid state­ment looks. Stick with clas­sic shapes and neu­tral colours that suit your skin tone. Aim to be the most glam­orous ver­sion of your­self. Con­sider the theme of the day and how you usu­ally like to wear your makeup. More dra­matic bridal looks can be a great choice too, such as a red lip and winged liner for a vin­tage wed­ding.

Skin prep is im­por­tant – Start a good skin care regime at least three months prior to your wed­ding day. Know your skin type and use ap­pro­pri­ate prod­ucts. Per­haps con­sider a fa­cial or even two. Also, wear sun­screen daily on your face, neck and chest to avoid pig­men­ta­tion and sun­tan lines from de­vel­op­ing.

Touch up – Have one of your brides­maids carry blot­ting pa­pers, pow­der com­pact and lip­stick in her bag so you can freshen up your makeup.
