Get the look: make up, by Jules Cardozo-Marsh

 

This boho-inspired bridal look is all about keeping your make-up soft and simple in the sun. If you're getting married abroad, it's important to think about your wedding make-up well in advance as you might need to make a few special purchases or book a make-up lesson.

Preparing your skin for the sun is really important, especially if you are prone to oily skin: use a primer to prep the face before applying foundation as this will hold everything in place. If you need to use a pore minimiser, apply this only to the areas that really need it.

Only apply foundation where you need to even out the skin tone; apply a light textured concealer and pat into the skin rather than rubbing or dragging. Do not be tempered to use a heavier coverage in the heat as it will just melt - think less is more!

Apply a light dusting of translucent foundation to combat any shine and to help 'set' your make-up. Don't be tempted to 'over-product'; instead, think light as air...

If you're going to be wearing eyeshadow apply a little foundation to the eye area and use a powder eyeshadow rather than creme, as this will definitely crease in the heat unless it's waterproof. A definite must is a good waterproof mascara; if you have the time (and money!), investing in semi-permanent lashes are a no-fuss way to keep your lashes looking gorgeous.

Go easy on the bronzer. I know it's tempting to think bronzed goddess but less is more. Keep lips hydrated by using a lip balm with a hint of colour rather than using a lipstick; lipsticks can sometimes be drying, depending on the brand and texture.

Finally, spritz the face with a good make-up setter. This can also be used in-flight to hydrate the skin especially on a long-haul flight.

Comb the hair through to ensure completely detangled. Take a 2 inch section from the crown and lightly spray with hairspray before adding a roller.

 

Repeat this in 2 inch sections from the crown to nape and with a few rollers on each side.

 

Take rollers out gently and apply a little hydrating product to protect finished style from the humidity and heat of a beach wedding.

 

Take the hair up to just below the crown and twist it as a whole section, pin loosely into place. Gently use a few pins to wrap into a bun given boho shape by pinning randomly in a circular shape.

 

If you have a tiara or accessory, once placed ensure that the elastic, if not the same colour, is covered by pinning hair over it. Finish will a very light spray of hairspray.
