10 Makeup No-nos for Daytime Brides


7
Caking on the Foundation

You want to make sure your makeup stays put until the very last dance of the afternoon, but that doesn't mean you need to cover your face with more makeup than usual. Applying too much foundation can take a toll on your skin. The pores on your face need to breathe, and a thick layer of makeup could clog pores and lead to breakouts. Long-lasting foundations work, but some brands could leave your face feeling dry by the end of the day. Mineral foundation is lightweight, blends well with most skin tones, and works well in dry, humid environments, so it's a great foundation choice for daytime brides. Finally, consider selecting a sweat-proof foundation or mineral powder, especially if you're tying the knot during the warmer months of the year.
