Making It Last - The Best Primers For Your Wedding Day

{Posting by Julia Bowden, Before the Big Day's Hair & Beauty Expert} I'm willing to bet that nearly all the brides reading this are working super-hard at the moment to make sure every detail of their wedding day looks perfect. But whatever you do, don't forget your make-up. After all, you're going to be in nearly all of your wedding photographs, so it's worth investing in some A star beauty products. As a professional make-up artist, my biggest tip is to make sure you use the correct primer as part of your wedding morning beauty regime. These fantastic products will ensure your make-up stays put all day - as you'll never know when that photographer is going to snap you! Primers smooth imperfections, and give something for the make-up to stick to so that it lasts and lasts. The best primers will also make your skin glow. Scroll on down for my favourites at the moment.

Skin Primer

Chanel Blanc {£30, Selfridges} - This is a clever multi-tasking primer. It adds contours and radiance, and uses a special blend of powders to reduce the appearance of lines, resulting in a flawless finish that makes foundation last all day. A must-have for your wedding day.

Eye Primer
Nars Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base {£18, John Lewis} - With its paste-like consistency, this clever little primer smooths on clear, and makes eyeshadows look more intense. It'll also ensure your eye make-up lasts all day without creasing.

Lip Primer
Elizabeth Arden Advanced Lip Fix {£19, Boots} - This brilliant beauty product smooths vertical lines and prevents lipstick from bleeding. It'll seal in moisture and plump up dry lips - making you lipstick ready for the 'You May Now Kiss The Bride' moment. Can be worn alone, or under lipstick to make it last all day.

Enjoy! JB x
