Becca Cosmetics' Stacy Pearson-Gleason on Making Your Wedding Makeup Last

Wedding Day Makeup: Creating the Perfect Stay-Put Base

A wedding day is an emotional moment with plenty of tears, kisses and long embraces along the way. But besides being smudge- and water-resistant, a bride's makeup also has to win in the long-wearing department. That's why, above all else, it's so important to create the proper makeup base. Remember that one product can't do it all: "You're going to need three to four products to make your makeup water-resistant, to cover everything . . . and to be photo-ready," says Stacy Pearson-Gleason, Becca Cosmetics' national makeup artist.
What you will need: Use a primer to prepare the skin, a tinted moisturiser and a concealer to correct, and a powder to set. This way, since each product covers a specific function, you'll still see the skin shine through and the makeup won't look heavy or cakey.
You still want to be dewy, though
: While it's important to lock in the makeup with powder, "I think that brides need to have a little bit of life in their skin," Stacy says. To boost the luminosity of the complexion, Pearson-Gleason recommends applying Becca Cosmetics' Shimmering Skin Perfector ($66) after the makeup is all set. Apply to the cheekbones, under the eyes and wherever else a little highlighting is needed. Try: the Opal shade. Be sure to stay tuned for more wedding makeup tips from Pearson-Gleason, including her favourite eye, cheek and lip products.
