Keeping your bridal makeup looking fresh all day has never been easier thanks to an ever-expanding range of primer products for skin, lashes and eye shadows as well as the expert tips your MUA will impart to keep your makeup in place until you call it a night. That said, we always advise brides to pack a pressed powder or blotting papers to take off shine, as well as a lipstick to top up with after eating and drinking.
Forget digging out a lippie that’s seen better days from the bottom of your makeup bag though, as Clinique has just launched ‘Kiss the Bride’, a collection of three limited-edition, long-lasting lipsticks ideal for your big day.
While most lip colours that last the pace stain and crease (and we’ve found some are really drying, leaving lips flaking and splitting), the Long Last Soft Shine Lipsticks look fresh and stay super hydrating for up to eight hours.
The three shades – ‘Will You’, a warm pink shade, ‘I Do’, a darker berry colour and ‘Honeymoon’, a gorgeous nude that will take you from day to night with ease –are perfectly pitched for the subtlety of a classic bridal look with colour that still pops. £17.50 each. Available from www.clinique.co.uk
