Bridal make-up for mature brides
Whatever your age. . .
You can have a smoky makeup if you want one!
Some of my older brides worry about either having too much makeup or mot enough. There is no right or wrong. What is important is that your makeup is right for you. If you are not used to wearing makeup don’t be fobbed off with “you need heavy makeup for the photographs’. Because you don’t.
You may need to wear a touch more makeup than usual, but in the right hands your makeup should feel natural, not heavy or caked, and you don’t want to end up look like someone you’re not.
Chat to your makeup artist before the trial run so you can get a feel for the way she works.
