Map out skincare reigimes
Skincare is one of the most crucial factors in any wedding make-up look because it will largely influence how your make-up sits and lasts through the day. Ideally you want each bridesmaid to use a great eye cream, serum, moisturiser and lip balm pre-make-up, but having your make-up artist apply all of these steps will take a fair amount of time. Leave a regime out for each bridesmaid to apply in her own time; if it comes to it, they can work their product in during hair styling. This way, their artist can get straight to work.
The eye cream: Chantecaille Rose de Mai Eye Lift (£82, spacenk.com). This cooling eye gel from Chantecaille is infused with rose so gentle enough for all skin types and great at reducing puffiness or bags from late nights filled with pre-wedding excitement.
The serum: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair (£53 for 30ml, esteelauder.co.uk) Estee Lauder's cult serum is a must for every bridesmaid because it works to combat all manner of skin concerns in one, making it a one-size-fits-all on your big day.
The moisturiser: Tata Harper Reparative Moisturiser (£94, cultbeauty.co.uk). A nourishing lotion, this jar of magic from Tata Harper immensely hydrates skin and thus allows your make-up to stay in place all day without a patch in sight.
The lip balm: Suqqu Lip Concentrate (£35, selfridges.com) And as for lips, this waxy balm from Suqqu is firmer than your average, staying put in even the hottest weather and keeping lips juicy and comfortable all day long.
