Your wedding is coming up fast, but it’s never too late to decide to turn over a new leaf when it comes to your beauty routine and taking care of your skin. It’s important to realise that good additions to your beauty routine don’t always have to be drastic either. Some of the best are on the simple side.
1. Finding the right concealer
When it comes to make-up, specifically wedding day make up that needs to last all day and be photographed well, concealer really doesn’t get the credit it deserves for helping you look your best.
The ideal concealer is creamy and yellow based and the shade should be one shade lighter than your skin tone for best results. My current favourite is the Full Coverage Concealer by Make Up Forever applied with a mini Beauty Blender which helps it get right into the nooks of your eyes. This combo makes short work of dark circles and covers any blemishes in a flash!
2. Embrace the miracle of face oil
If you’re like many, you probably grew up thinking oil anywhere near your face was a no-no. However, the time has come to embrace it wholeheartedly, especially if you’re concerned with countering the effects of ageing.
Face oils can help restore your skin’s natural lipid levels and heal parched areas. Almond oil, olive oil, and sesame oil are popular options, but feel free to experiment until you find one that works for you. Just make sure you save your oil therapy for night-time, unless you’re planning on going au naturel for the day. Oil and make-up don’t mix!
It’s pricey, but I’m obsessed with Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. I use it every night and when I wake up my skin feels incredible!
3. Use sun protection everyday
When it comes to ageing, sun damage is the biggest offender out there, so sun protection is absolutely key when it comes to having flawless skin. Make sure you opt for a product that’s SPF 30 or higher. You should also make sure you’re protected against both UVA and UVB rays by choosing a full spectrum product. You could also use a foundation that has SPF already in it.
