After hours spent trying on fishtail, A-line and Bardot-style gowns in chic boutiques, you've found the perfect beaded wedding dress by an up-and-coming designer. Those sophisticated satin sandals you spotted during your last online shopping spree were simply made to go with it.
And having had your locks teased into a number of different hairstyles, you've decided on a half-up, half-down 'do with a touch of backcombing that perfectly complements the subtle retro vibe of your big day. All that's left to make a decision on now is your make-up. We'll show you how a little bit of careful planning will ensure that you feel confident as you walk down the aisle.
With countless thoughts racing through your mind, it's highly unlikely that you'll have a blissful night's sleep the evening before you exchange vows with your loved one. In the event that you do wake up with tired-looking skin the following morning, we urge you not to panic. Clarins Beauty Flash Balm will help eliminate any signs of exhaustion by brightening and tightening facial contours while adding a youthful and radiant glow.
To create a base to work upon, dab a small amount of Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch on your fingertips and gently rub over your cheeks, chin, nose and forehead. Apply a foundation that offers even and long-lasting coverage. It'll save you from having to pop to the bathroom for touch-ups when there are far more important things to be doing like mingling with guests and hitting the dancefloor.
It's no secret that all brides-to-be want long and luscious lashes to flutter as they say 'I do'. Your secret weapon? Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara. A few sweeps of the multi-dimensional product curls and coats from root to tip with an intense colour. A dab of blusher will warm up your complexion while a slick of lipstick – as neutral or bold as you dare - will add the finishing touch to your look.
