How to keep your make-up in place throughout the day

How to keep your make-up in place throughout the day Q – I want my make-up to last from the start of my wedding until the end of the night. How can I ensure it stays in place?

"This is an important question that I often get asked by my brides. The key to longevity is all in the first stage. Skincare preparation will ensure your skin is well fed, hydrated and settled ready for products to be applied. The happier your skin, the smoother your foundation will look and the longer it will stay in place.

"Always use a hydrating water/tonic, followed by a moisturiser that nourishes but also sits lightly on your face. For oily skin, a light gel-cream is the perfect option. A hydrating under eye mask will also give you a brightening boost on the morning of your wedding.

"Primers play an important part in keeping your make-up set. There are plenty on the market for all skin types, and your artist will be able to advise which is the best option for you.

"Finally, always set your make-up using a light setting powder and a spritz of setting spray to ensure you look flawless from day to night."
