There is not much more beautiful than a late summer or early autumn wedding – other than the bride, of course. Delicate flowers against a dramatic backdrop of green grass and a grey-blue sky, the perfect dress, the ideal partner; they’re all part of the recipe for a wonderful wedding. Sweep your hair away from your face to save from the heat when you’re all packed into the reception hall, sport a flowing dress that allows you to breathe and enjoy the day in comfort with a smile on your face – but beware of your makeup!
The makeup you choose to wear to the wedding, whether you’re the bride, bridesmaid or a guest, will need to last the entire day and be able to tackle the myriad of kisses to cheeks, the tears and, quite possibly, the rain. The last thing you need is your mascara running down your face due to a sudden downpour or the unbearable heat of a hall full of people. It pays to be prepared.
