How to choose the right foundation for your skin type

Bride Q – How do I choose the best foundation for my wedding day?

"Your foundation is very personal. When it comes to choosing your wedding day make-up, be mindful of what you usually wear, chances are this is a good place to start. If you have problems on a day-to-day basis, then start looking for a new foundation. On your wedding day, you want to look as much like you as possible. If you’re used to a dewy glow but are worried it won’t last, try using products over your foundation such as cream bronzers and a setting spray. For a more glamourous flawless look, a heavier foundation can be used to create a matte finish but this can be quite dry on the skin. A hydrating primer will prevent your face from looking dry in pictures and create a longer-lasting effect. You can apply powders for additional highlights and dewy effects.

"I highly recommend airbrush make-up as a base. It’s guaranteed to last 24 hours, reduces lines and blemishes and can be tailored to your preference as well as having SPF. It’s a great all-rounder and works for most of my brides. Be mindful when picking a foundation with an SPF as some can leave a flashback on pictures in certain lights.

"If you want to try a couple of different foundations to find the one for you, I recommend visiting a make-up counter and choosing a tester to get a true representation of how it will look on a day-to-day basis. When matching your skin colour, always test on your neckline, not the side of your jawline as this can be a different shade to your chest.

"Any foundation can be a bride’s preference and the best way to make you feel special is investing in a great base."
