I don’t have photos to share, but I used Cle de Peau for my outdoor wedding and was really pleased.


It covered easily, looked completely natural (no exaggeration) and felt comfortable.  I gave up Bare Minerals for this one!  The luminizer is wonderful, too, and I use the concealer everyday.

@mel801:  Hi, I got married this year and like you, don’t wear much makeup usually.  I went for Liz Earle tinted moisturiser with the Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage.  Before that though, I would absolutely swear by Clarins Beauty Flash Balm primer.  This really does do what it says on the tin!  Try it out using your everyday makeup first to see how you like it.  Also read the reviews on Makeup Alley for any product you’re interested in – it’s a goldmine of information.  I found YouTube videos really helpful, especially Lisa Eldridge ones on bridal makeup.  After getting back from honeymoon I started a blogsite to help women over 40 with wedding preparations as I couldn’t find that much when I was looking myself. Seems I’m not allowed to tell you the name of the website but you might guess from my username?  It’s not a commercial site (at the moment) so I’d love if you found anything from it that is useful to you.  Have a look at the YouTube videos I’ve posted – they really are great!  Good Luck and let me know how you get on with your makeup quest.  Maybe you could write an article for my blogsite? That would be really cool…Alliison xx

I’m exactly like you – I’ll be 55 when I get married and I only wear lipstick on a good day – I’m dreading this whole process…my friends keep telling me to get a MUA because I have NO CLUE what to do lol!
