Top 10 tips for a successful Bridal Makeup by Dionne and Rachel
. Every Bride 6 weeks prior to her wedding should focus on using a skincare routine and drink lots of water. This helps to keep the skin
  hydrated and radiant for the special day.
. A good makeup primer or base is a must have. This type of product evens out skin tone, minimizes pores and holds the foundation in place for longer.
. A foundation is important in so many ways. It provides radiance and luminosity to the skin. Whether its
  lightweight, medium or sophisticated cover you prefer the foundation should always match your skintone and blend easily. Semi matt foundations are
  a great choice especially for your photographs.
. Concealers and light reflective correctors are great when using to conceal under eye circles and imperfections. Make sure you do not use the light reflective
  concealers on blemishes just around the eye area.
. Translucent powder completes the makeup base, helps to prevent shine throughout the day.
. Bronzers are a great product. But remember less is more. This product is great in the spring/ summer and should be applied where your face would normally catch the sun.
  Warmer blushers or complexion enhancers are more advisable for autumn and winter as these will look more naturel on the skin but still provide a healthy glow.
. For the wedding day or your honeymoon , waterproof eyeliner and mascara is a must. These products will be smudgeproof,tearproof and waterproof as well
  as them giving definition to your eye makeup look.
. Lip liners are great for definition, always opt for a colour to match your lipstick. Feather over lips to give your lipstick or gloss extra hold.
. Blusher always brings the makeup look together. The makeup should be blended balanced and coordinated.
. If the bride is carrying a little bag with her on the day her must have products for keeping her makeup looking fresh and radiant into the evening
  are lipgloss, powder and blusher.
