    Make sure the skin is exfoliated and moisturized, once this is done apply a primer to the skin. Veil Foundation Primer will create a barrier between the skin care and makeup and allow the skin to look flawless all day. This primer will also soothe any redness, soften fine lines and pores and control oil. Apply with a sponge, synthetic brush or fingers all over the face and neck.

    Choose a foundation that offers medium to full coverage and is formulated for HD photography and videography. Natural Finish Foundation not only looks and feels like skin, but it is formulated to last for hours, so no need to worry if your bride is hot or crying, this foundation is bullet proof. Apply with a flat top synthetic brush, stippling brush, foundation brush or sponge for even and flawless coverage.

    Powder and bronze the skin, powdering under the eyes and down the center of the face and bronzing on the high points of the face where the sun would naturally hit (forehead, temples, across the cheeks and nose and down the neck), this will give the skin a natural glow and create subtle contours. Add a rosy blush to the cheeks for a natural flush. You will need to apply more blush than normal so that the makeup stands out in photos (remember a flash can often make a bride look one dimensional, so create dimension with blush, bronzer and highlighter).

    Fill in eyebrows with the Essential Brow Trio, opt for a neutral shade that will enhance the natural brow shape without making the brows appear drawn on. Once the brows are complete, begin by applying a wash of color all over the lid, try a neutral shad like Shell as it offers the perfect amount of satin shimmer and pigment. To enhance the contours of the eye apply a dark matte brown like Truffle or Sable into the crease and blend, apply this same shade to the lower lash line to define the lashes.
