Start with a clear vi­sion of what you want to look like on your wed­ding day. There may be a theme for the event—beach ca­sual or black tie etc—and your make-up should match your theme and your out­fit. Most im­por­tantly it should be a look that you feel com­pletely com­fort­able wear­ing. For ex­am­ple, brides who don’t nor­mally wear much make-up should ap­proach styles such as smoky eyes with cau­tion.

Wed­ding photography is gen­er­ally very ex­pen­sive so make sure that your skin­care and make-up prod­ucts don’t con­trib­ute to the fi­nal cost. Many peo­ple end up hav­ing to Pho­to­shop and cor­rect their pic­tures be­cause the zinc ox­ide or ti­ta­nium diox­ide—com­monly used SPF ingredients that are usu­ally in foun­da­tion, pow­ders and sun­screens— made their com­plex­ion look very pale and white. Chante­caille’s Ul­tra Sun Pro­tec­tion (SPF 45) pro­tects your skin from the sun, cre­ates a primed can­vas for your make-up, and doesn’t con­tain light-re­flect­ing ingredients, so it won’t ruin your pho­tos or give you a ghostly pal­lor.

Glow­ing skin pho­to­graphs beau­ti­fully and in per­son gives you a more youth­ful look. It makes your skin ap­pear healthy, happy and ra­di­ant. One great way to achieve a nat­u­ral glow is by us­ing a gel high­lighter that is sheer, blends eas­ily and re­flects light with­out a strong metal­lic shine—it should be more like you are lit from within. Liq­uid Lu­mière is a great way to add light to your face eas­ily. Mix a small drop with foun­da­tion or tap it on top of your foun­da­tion, con­cealer or blush. Or sim­ply brush gen­tly on the top planes of the face for gor­geously high­lighted def­i­ni­tion to your bone struc­ture.

Glow­ing skin is beau­ti­ful but if you have oily skin then it can eas­ily get out of con­trol. Use a com­pact translu­cent pow­der that is finely milled so it does not look like pow­der on your skin. Some com­pact pow­ders can give you that matte look, which can be too heavy and un­nat­u­ral look­ing. Chante­caille’s HD Per­fect­ing Pow­der is ideal as it ab­sorbs into your skin, eras­ing any lines, tex­ture and shine with­out adding weight.

Play up your best fea­tures and re­mem­ber to add a bit of ex­tra colour to the cheeks, lips and lash line to last you through the day—the cam­era flash can be a bit un­for­giv­ing and if the light is too strong, cheeks, lips and eyes tend to fade away.
