Summer Wedding Makeup By Charlotte Tilbury

When I got married 11 years ago, I hired a makeup artist to do my makeup. If I was getting married today, I would definitely do my own makeup. My makeup artist was very good and I was happy with the end result, I insisted that she gave me a healthy glow minimal look. I wanted to look the best version of myself. This is of course the ethos of Charlotte Tilbury. There are so many fabulous products on the beauty market right now that it is impossible to not achieve a fabulous wedding day makeup look yourself. And of course there are many youtube tutorials to swot up on before the big day.

The most important thing is to get your skincare in order. So if you are not already following a regimented skincare routine, then 1 month before your wedding make sure you doing the following:

1) Double cleanse every night (removing cleanser with a hot cloth) if you have been wearing makeup.
2) Exfoliate (I prefer a liquid exfoliate) twice a week.
3) Use a serum to suit your specific skincare needs.
4) Follow with your preferred moisturiser.
5) In the morning, cleanse, serum and moisturiser.

Be careful not to introduce any new products that may cause a reaction. Stick to what you know and that works. But if you follow these simple steps, you shouldn't need to do anything else. A double cleanse and an exfoliate twice a week will do more for your skin than anything else. Don't try using a deep cleansing mask a week before the wedding as it will probably break you out as it draws out all the impurities.

Charlotte Tilbury is a trusted brand for both skincare and makeup so if you are looking for skincare and makeup products to try out before the big day, this is a great place to start. You may already have your own favourite products that work for you so continue to use them and in the meantime pick up other tips from Charlotte. Below is a tutorial she recently made that shows a brilliant summer wedding makeup look. And of course she has all the products to go along with it. You can get many a tip from this video and you may realise that you have similar products already at home. If not, Charlotte Tilbury will have the lot. Watch the tutorial below and get practising.
