Bridal Beauty Tips for Your Wedding Day


Compliments, compliments, compliments. The more the merrier! Particularly on your wedding day. Our favourite – by far – is simply, “you look beautiful.” Because, in the end, your bridal beauty is all about you, not your bridal makeup or the three excruciating hours it took to pin your hair.

Don’t get us wrong, we love cosmetics, but on your big day it’s the bride who should be in focus rather her blusher. That’s why we think that a bridal makeup look should be about taking your regular dressed-up makeup look to the next level, rather than overhauling your look entirely. If your fiancé doesn’t recognise you when it’s time to say your vows you’ve probably gone too far!

There are so many things to remember when planning for, and eventually on your wedding day, so to help you we have put together a consolidated list of top tips and “in the know” secrets.

Make time for yourself during the day

Greeting people, making or listening to toasts, posing for photos – it can be tiring when you are with other people and doing things constantly. Find a few minutes here and there throughout the day to take some time for yourself, grab a glass of water, reapply your makeup or sneak a couple of quiet minutes with your newly betrothed to drink it all in.

What is too much and too little makeup?

Makeup is down to personal taste, but even if you aren’t usually a make up user, a foundation to complement your skin tone, such as our iconic Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation, a natural colour of lip and some definition to your eyes go a long way to make you look your best in photographs.

Pick makeup and skincare products that will work hard for you in the day.

Look for long-wear foundation and lip products to last you through the day. Invest in your skin ahead of the big day to ensure you’re glowing, we recommend our no.1 serum Advanced Génifique.

Pick a unique scent

That will always remind you of your special day. Months or years later, you will smell it again and it will bring back all of the memories from your beautiful wedding day. If you’re working to a bigger budget, you can create something unique and bespoke from many perfumeries, or alternatively just pick a scent that is right for you. We love La Vie Est Belle for a feminine and floral scent.
