New Zealand Weddings - - PLANNING -

“The South Is­land can be scorch­ing hot dur­ing the day and bit­terly cold at night, so you want your makeup to with­stand the el­e­ments. Start by prep­ping the skin with a hy­drat­ing spray, fol­lowed by a cream that will boost dull skin and give a lu­mi­nous look. Then, set the foun­da­tion with a pow­der to help it stay in place. Wa­ter­proof mas­cara is a girl’s best friend on her wed­ding day; it pre­vents smudg­ing around the eyes es­pe­cially when those tears come! I also use a long-wear­ing smudge­proof eye­liner, fin­ish­ing off with a spritz of set­ting spray; it keeps makeup firmly in place and helps to re­duce shine.”
