The Beauty Bible: Wedding Day Foundation’s
Getting your foundation right for your wedding day is a big deal, you only get married once (fingers crossed!) So spending your time doing research on the all-important foundation and investing in a great one will be well worth it.
Naturally every bride wants to look their best, and getting the right balance between looking flawless in photos whilst looking flawless in the person can be a hard thing to achieve. Of course your make-up artist should give you all the best advice on types of foundation too. Have a look at our fabulous makeup artists on our approved supplier list…

There is a reason why M.A.C Face & Body Foundation is a Make-Up artists favourite… it comes in so many different shades and it gives you a flawlessly smooth finish to your skin. What bride wouldn’t want that? This foundation has no SPF so there will be no flashback, also great if you are wanting to create a more dewier natural look. This foundation best suits normal to dry skin.
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation would be perfect for your wedding day if you are wanting to go for a more ‘glowy’ foundation, one that shows your own natural radiance, leaving you with skin that looks vibrant, healthy and fresh. This foundation also does not contain SPF so flashback would not be an issue.
After doing a bit more research we have also discovered that even though this is a sheer foundation, this product has amazing coverage and can cover any redness or pigmentation on the skin, with that lightweight feel to it! This product best suits normal to dry skin types.

If you’re looking for a foundation to see you right through from morning to the early hours of the next day then you can’t go wrong with Estee Lauder’s long-lasting foundation. Once it’s on, it’s on!
