Prime your skin for all-over soft­ness. Try Ahava’s new Min­eral Botanic Body Lo­tions (£25), which com­ple­ment its Velvet Cream Body Wash. The lo­tions are in­fused with or­ganic plant ex­tracts and en­riched with nat­u­ral mois­tur­is­ing oils, mak­ing them ideal if you are prone to dry skin. Choose Hi­bis­cus & Fig, Hon­ey­suckle & Laven­der or Lo­tus & Ch­est­nut.

TWO MONTHS TO GO

Brush up on your make-up tech­nique and have some girly fun at the same time with a visit to Chanel’s new beauty bou­tique in Covent Gar­den. Its ser­vices for brides in­clude master­classes for small groups (hen par­ties or bri­dal par­ties), with ex­clu­sive hire of the down­stairs area. A Chanel ex­pert will teach brides and Keep your skin su­per-soft by us­ing an old­fash­ioned trick at night: cold cream. Don’t be put off by the thought that it is some­thing your great-grand­mother used – it is won­der­ful for putting back mois­ture lost through cen­tral heat­ing or air-conditioning. Try Mrs White’s Clas­sic Cold Cream (£25), a rich blend of beeswax, olive oil, or­ganic cider vine­gar and rose ab­so­lute.

THREE WEEKS TO GO

If you are do­ing your own make-up, take time to ex­per­i­ment with dif­fer­ent colours to get the look you want.

Clin­ique’s Even Bet­ter Make-Up (£27.50) comes in a handy com­pact for quick top-ups dur­ing the day. Avail­able in 20 shades, it cov­ers un­even skin tones and has a creamy, easyto-wear tex­ture.

For eyes, try Clin­ique’s Colour Surge eye shadow quad (£25), in luscious pinky-brown shades. Al­ter­na­tively the Colour Quar­tet and Eye Liner palette (£31) from Clarins, in cop­per, pale gold and pink gold, will give a touch of sum­mer warmth. Add drama with Clin­ique’s Quick­liner in In­tense Ivy (£14). The colour stays put all day long, so you don’t have to worry about fad­ing. To fin­ish, ap­ply Guerlain’s Maxi Lash mas­cara (£22) in Vi­o­let, for vol­ume and curl.

Add a glow to your com­plex­ion with Guerlain’s Ter­ra­cotta 4 Sea­sons gor­geous bronz­ing pow­der (£46.50) or Clarins’ Sum­mer Bronz­ing Com­pact (£30).

Com­plete the look with Clin­ique’s Long Last Lip­stick in Pink Choco­late (£16.50): the sub­tle colour will not date in pho­to­graphs and it has a creamy matte for­mula that will last for hours.

THE NIGHT BE­FORE

Try to chill out. If you are giv­ing your­self a man­i­cure, opt for a shade from Estée Lauder’s new French Nudes col­lec­tion (£14.50). Of­fer­ing just a hint of sub­tle colour, they are per­fect for close-ups with your bou­quet.

ON THE DAY

Be­fore leav­ing the house, dab on Wil­low’s Rose Eau de Toi­lette (£45). The ul­ti­mate ro­man­tic fra­grance.
