Eight sweat-proof beauty products for a summer wedding

21 Jun 2019

Whether you are a guest or a bride, we've got eight sweat-proof beauty products to make sure your make-up stays put all day long

With the summer wedding season in full swing, many of us will be filling up our social calendars with sun-soaked celebrations. 

As temperatures rise, more weddings are taking place outside with open air ceremonies and outdoor entertainment chosen to make the most of the warm weather... so the last thing you want is smudged make-up in the photos. 

A spokesperson for Mii Cosmetics says: “The key to perfecting summer bridal make-up is to expertly layer your formulas and textures so it lasts from ‘I do’ to dancefloor.

"Using a primer prior to make-up application is a must, this will create the perfect base for even longer lasting foundation and provide a flawless finish by smoothing over pores and fine lines. Long wearing formulas for eyes are also essential, use a creamy formula for a buildable and waterproof colour that lasts for hours and can offer a long-wear base to make powder shadows pop. 

"A powder blush and highlight hybrid warms the complexion and adds radiance in one sweep, choose a coral tone for an on-trend 2019 bridal look.To fix your look and achieve long lasting perfection, spritz your complexion with a setting mist to lock in make-up and keeps shine at bay.

"Your wedding day is long so keep essentials on hand for touch-ups, such as your chosen lipstick shade and a pressed powder to minimise shine.”
