The ultimate guide to wedding makeup | Nourished

As wedding season has started, embrace the opportunity to find the look you've always dreamed of! Whether you’re the lucky bride, a stunning bridesmaid, or a gorgeous guest, here at Nourished we have the best makeup products to take you from "I do" to the dance floor and beyond, ensuring your journey to happily ever after is nothing short of enchanting.

Prep for all-day radiance

To begin with, you need to figure out which makeup look you want to go for. Do you want to go all-out or rather stay natural? Whatever look you go for, preparing your skin is crucial to have a hydrated, glowing, or dewy base for your makeup. Start with a cleanser to clean your skin and after that, softly exfoliate your skin so baby cells reveal and your skin is as smooth as possible, after that apply a moisturizer. The Moringa All Beauty Cream is a perfect moisturizer to hydrate the skin AND create the ultimate base for your foundation and makeup. 

Choose your base

Start-off your makeup look with a foundation for flawless coverage. The foundations from Eye of Horus contain SPF, so you are protected from the sun and won't burn your skin on this perfect day. We know during the wedding season the weather is at its best. Want full coverage? Go for the Second Skin Foundation and if you are looking for a more natural-looking look, the Skin Tint Serum Foundation is perfect for you.

You don't want a shiny head in photos, so powder off with the Ere Perez Corn Setting Powder. This ultra-lightweight translucent setting powder naturally absorbs oily residue from the skin, when you sweat easily then don’t forget your Green Tea Oil Control Paper for during the day. Then on to bronzer for a sunkissed glow. The Inika Baked Mineral Bronzer delivers a beautiful sun-enhanced radiance that looks and feels completely natural.
