10 wedding make-up tips from a wedding make-up artist


Wedding season is here! Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day, so here are some tips to help get that glowing bride look.

1. Avoid using products that contain SPF

I wouldn’t normally advocate this, but products that contain SPF can photograph weird because of the zinc oxide found in many moisturizers and foundations. It causes that paled out face look that shows up in photographs, but not in person. So your best bet is to avoid products with SPF on your wedding day (but don’t forget to wear SPF on your honeymoon!).

2. Go light on the shimmer

A highlight on cheekbones or browbones is flattering, but too much shimmer doesn’t photograph well. Shimmer has light reflecting particles that the camera picks up as white streaks or shine. Try doing a complete run-through of your makeup before the wedding, and take pictures. If you see shiny or white streaks where you’ve applied a shimmer product, you know where to tone down.

3. Wax three days before the wedding

Redness can be tough to cover, and some people stay slightly swollen for a couple days post-wax.

4. Skip lip gloss if you’re wearing a veil that comes down over your face

It’s a magnet for the fabric and will make the veil stick to your lips the second you put it on. The gloss and any lipstick you’re wearing will transfer to the veil, making for a messy situation.

5. Don’t stray too far from your usual look

I’ve had minimalist makeup girls request a red lip vintage look for their trials and had brides who normally wore a lot of eyeliner ask for a natural look, but they usually don’t feel right when it’s done. I’m all for playing around with makeup, but this isn’t the day to do it. If you want to try a smokey eye for the first time, save it for your bachelorette party!

6. Bring oil blotting sheets with you

I always include these in my bridal touchup kits. It’s a long day and most people get a little shine, but these papers keep it at bay. I prefer them to powder because powder tends to cake up after multiple applications.

7. Use a foundation and eye primer

The number one question brides ask me is “Will my makeup stay on all day?” With good primers, it will!


8. Consider using false lashes

For weddings, I prefer flares (individual bunches of 6-8 lashes) to full strip lashes. Because you can put on as few or as many as you want, you’re able to control how natural or dramatic your look is.

9. Use waterproof mascara

This may seem like a no-brainer, but brides have a million and one details to worry about, so this can get overlooked. It’s a big day, and if you get emotional, you want to make sure your mascara doesn’t show it.

10. Set your foundation with loose powder

Not only does the powder give the foundation a soft finish, but it takes shine out of the skin. Cameras pick up shine, but starting with powder and touching up with oil blotting sheets will keep you shine-free.

Beach wedding in Greece



If you're looking for a truly unique beach wedding we may have the ultimate answer. Your own beach, on your own private beach bar, without the 'millionaires only' price tag!
Imagine heading to your big day aboard your own personal powerboat, you and up to 50 guests skimming across crystal blue waters to your own personal island for the day. Well, its not an impossible dream!
If your own private beach wedding doesn't seem quite memorable enough, there are options to make it even more of a once in a lifetime day. While the thrill of a powerboat ride to your venue is pretty unique, you can take it a step further, and arrive in style (with maybe your husband or wife to be) with a private air taxi and experience the true beauty of the surrounding islands and waters from above on the way.



After the sun sets in a blaze of colour, you may well feel like you never want to leave this paradise, so why not send your guests back to the mainland, and retire to the luxury honeymoon villa, enjoying the romance of this idyllic setting for a night or two.

Spend your days relaxing on the beach, exploring the island, or snorkelling over untouched reef before heading back from this once-in-a-lifetime wedding experience to reintegrate yourselves into the 'real' world - that will never be quite the same again!

Top 10 wedding tips for brides




1. Starting six months prior to your wedding day, have a facial once a month to ensure a radiant complexion.
2. Adopt a healthy eating and regular exercise regime. Also, remember to drink lots of water and herbal teas.
3. If you are spray tanning for your wedding, trial the product or professional service first to be certain you are going to like the end result. A bad spray tan can look tragic, whereas a good one looks fabulous.
4. Do not neglect your hands and feet. Frequent manicures and pedicures are a must. Clean your engagement ring and any other jewellery you will be wearing.
5. Check your wedding gown fits perfectly prior to it leaving the store. Ensure all beading is sewn on securely, zips work and, if needs be, somewhere for you to hang your train so you are free to dance the night away. Another pearl of wisdom is to also try on your gown with the undergarments you intend to wear on your wedding day to ensure they fit perfectly under your dress
6. If you are wearing a strapless gown, take your bra off at least three hours before the photographer’s arrival on your wedding day. Bra strap marks stay embedded in the skin for a long time and look unsightly in photographs.
7. Delegate a trouble-shooter with good people and organisational skills to oversee and deal with any unexpected hitches on the day (touch wood). You do not need the added stress.
8. Confirm hair and make-up artists at least a month before your big day.
9. While getting ready do not forget to eat. Pack straws and organise bite-size portions of food to be available so eating and drinking will not spoil your make-up.
10. The beauty preparations before the wedding ceremony and celebrations are a very important part of your day. Enjoy all the pampering and attention. Have some Rescue Remedy (available from all good health food shops) on hand in case you need to calm nervous butterflies. Make sure you have a compact and lipstick for touch-ups.
