So, how can you tap into the talents of these effortless-beauty hair and makeup pros for your very own big day?

Foundation Shades For Every Bride

Makeup for a bride’s big day is a vital part of the prep, and nailing the look she wants comes down to a good base. A good foundation will give you a flawless finish and last through all the photos, stress and celebration. Yet despite the plethora of makeup brands available, it can be frustrating to find your match without mixing since many brands offer only 10-15 shades. What about those of us who fall outside this spectrum or in between these shades? No one wants to look back at wedding photos and realize your face doesn’t quite match the rest of you. With these brands’ wide foundation shade range, you can be sure to find your match, for a stunning bridal glow. Click here to read the rest of this post »
