We all want to look our best in those all-important photos and make memories that last a lifetime. So, to help you look your bridal-party best, Charlotte Vøhtz, founder of Green People shares her top tips on wedding day make-up essentials for brides, bridesmaids and beyond!
ESSENTIAL MAKE-UP FOR BLUSHING BRIDES
FIND YOUR PERFECT PARTNER: The stress of organising your big day can play havoc with your skin but by applying a colour correcting foundation, you can achieve a flawless finish. For a natural look, opt for a pressed mineral powder. Developed to allow the skin to breathe, Green People's mineral powders deliver a matte, silky-smooth finish that lasts all day. Apply to primed skin with a kabuki brush and achieve the perfect glow by dusting blusher over the apples of the cheeks
ESSENTIAL MAKE-UP FOR THE MOTHER OF THE BRIDE
TEAR-PROOF YOUR MASCARA: Don't risk the emotion of the day spoiling your make-up. For a tear-proof mascara that defines the lashes apply Green People's Volumising Mascara. It is designed to deliver outstanding volume and, because it contains beeswax, it is water resistant.
ESSENTIAL MAKE-UP FOR BRIDESMAIDS
DON'T OUTSHINE THE BRIDE: When it comes to bridesmaid etiquette, the first rule is to avoid outshining the bride so, for a style that's stunning but subtle, opt for light-reflecting make-up. Green People's 3-in-1 blendable Illuminating Eye Duo contains light-reflecting pigments and can be used as eyeshadow, a highlighter and as luminescent complexion boosters. With a palette featuring Pearl and Satin Pink shades, these shimmering natural powders will help your skin to sparkle.
ESSENTIAL MAKE-UP FOR WEDDING GUESTS
CHOOSE YOUR COLOUR WISELY: We all know it’s bad form for guests to wear white to a wedding and, much like choosing an outfit, careful consideration should be given to colours when choosing your wedding guest make-up.
If you’ve got numerous weddings to attend this year, you’ll know that attending weddings can be expensive! To minimise the cost, choose a classic timeless lipstick shade that complements different styles and outfits.
Natural nude pink shades are fast over-taking classic reds in the style stakes and Millennial Pink shades are thought to be the highest grossing lipstick shades in the world.
For a perfectly-pink lipstick apply Green People’s Damask Rose Velvet Matte Lipstick. Made with natural earth minerals, this timeless nude-rose shade suits all skin tones and is enriched with vitamin E to help keep the lips nourished.
ESSENTIAL MAKE-UP FOR FLOWER GIRLS
BE EASY TO SPOT: Is your pre-teen or teen conscious of her skin? Give her the confidence of a glowing complexion with the Organic Young Range. Designed to support pubescent skin the Oy! Clear Skin Blemish Concealer contains natural actives, earth minerals and Omegas to help clear and conceal spots.
