How to prep your bridal skin before the big day
As a wedding is planned months in advance, your to-do list should include taking meticulous care of your skin before even thinking about your make-up. Begin months before the big day. Certain routines will become daily habits that will last long after the wedding! The secret? Cleansing and moisturising.
Beautiful skin is clean skin.

How do I choose the right exfoliator?
To make your bridal make-up even more beautiful, eliminate dead skin cells once or twice a week using a targeted exfoliator that is suitable for your skin type. There's something for everyone in our exfoliating product range, whether it be a gel, a mousse or an oil.

Some eye make-up advice
It's going to be a long day for the bride.

SEE MORE Apply the Velvet or Satin Shadow. Your eyes will radiate with a smoothing, sparkling, satin or matte effect, depending on which shade you choose. SEE LESS
