Bridal beauty: Tips and tricks for dewy, vibrant skin on your wedding day

Aidan Corcoran, Brown Thomas Beauty Stylist, shares his tips and tricks for dewy, vibrant skin on your wedding day. 

Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, €49

“Skin is always in for the bridal season, a beautiful base will never date and having a fresh luminous finish will make you feel and look amazing. Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, €49, is a perfect choice – the patented micro-fil technology will soften and blur your skin.”

“Softer smokey eyes are seeing a real return. Delicate hues of rich brown and opulent golds are great choices for people with blue eyes to add definition and impact in a subtle way.”

Tom Ford Illuminating Primer, €64

“Skin prep is the key to all success to ensure your make-up lasts all day. Tailor with your perfect skincare routine and match that with a foundation primer. My favourite is the Tom Ford Illuminating Primer, €64, it makes your skin look like champagne.”

MAC Cream Colour Base in Hush, €22

“MAC Cream Colour Base in Hush, €22 is my secret weapon for added vibrancy to the skin. It’s a subtle soft melon colour that adds a soft luminosity and bounces the light off the skin.”

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Filter, €40

“Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Filter, €40, is a great option to add illumination all over the skin, available in seven glorious shades which all add a soft Instagram style filter to your face.”

NARSissist Wanted Cheek Palette, €49

“NARS have the most perfect powder highlighters that never settle on the skin, they add brilliance and shine in all the right ways. Softly place the powder on the high points of your skin, cheekbones and cupid’s bow. Never bring the highlighter in close to your nose, try to keep that area more matte.”

Bobbi Brown Face Mist, €28

“If you have dehydrated skin a hydrating mist is a great way to keep your skin fresh throughout the day. These mists are often infused with hyaluronic acid and act as moisture magnets to the skin whilst not shifting your make-up base. My favourites are the Bobbi Brown Face Mist, €28 infused with chamomile and La Mer The Mist, €70, has a magnet inside to keep the mist recharged.”

Laura Mercier Candleglow Powder, €38

“Laura Mercier Candleglow Powder, €38, is a great soft focus powder that minimizes pores and doesn’t leave your skin flat. There are five shades and each is designed to mimic the reflection of candlelight in your skin.”
