With the wedding season upon us, we get even more queries from our brides on how to look perfect on their wedding day. We asked expert hair and make-up artist in Greece, Frantzeska Koukoula, who happily shared her secrets to guarantee a flawless summer proof make up and get you ready for your brightest day!
1. Skincare – Moisturize!
Preparation will get you halfway to your goal for a summer proof make-up for a hot summer day. You need to take care of your skin and make sure its moisture levels are high. This way, you will be sure that your make up will last longer but also, that your skin does not need huge coverage. It is good to start prepping about six months in advance. You will feel light and your skin will be able to breathe for the whole day!
2. Setting the basics – Primer
Let’s get something clear; no make-up however impeccable may seem will not last unless you have done the very basic yet most important step: use a quality primer! When you have your wedding make – up tester, ask your professional to use a primer they feel would suit your face and skin needs. That way, you can test it throughout the day and see if it does the trick. No surprises left for the big day!
3. Keep it simple
The warmer the climate gets, the less products you need to use. When it comes to your foundation – the A to Z – for your flawless make up, you should be cautious of the temperatures on your wedding day. If you are planning to get married at one of the iconic Greek islands, or are fans of the French Riviera or the Tuscan countryside one thing is for sure: it will be hot! So, there is no need to use big quantities of your foundation to do the trick. The less you use, the better and lasting outcome you will have.
4. Waterproof is the way to go
It comes with no surprise, but when summer heat appear it is time for some extra make up care. Use waterproof products, like mascaras, eye shadows, matte lipsticks and generally make up products that are made to last. You don’t want the heat or the humidity ruining your mascara. Mascaras can only be ruined from tears of joy on the big day and even for that, a waterproof one will help you avoid the drama!
5. In setting spray we trust
The latest hype that make-up artists swear on and with good reason. It is proven that make up sprays help set the make-up and make it last longer. Spray locks the skin moisture and make up in its place, ensuring a flawless look for hours. This has to be your finishing touch for a glowing summer proof make-up.
