Brides-to-be might want to note this makeup tip for the perfect wedding photos

So easy to forget too.

Another thing to remember.

Brides-to-be have enough on their plates without getting bogged down with makeup tips but this is one worth mentioning.

Whether you’re getting your makeup done professionally or you’re doing it yourself, have a look at the ingredients used in the foundation you’ve chosen.

Normally, a foundation with added SPF is a godsend because it’s extra protection for your skin.

However, SPF contains light-reflecting particles, not ideal when it comes to photo time.

Unless you want to look like a ghost, stick to an SPF of 10 which of course is grand if your celebrations are taking place indoors.

If however, you’re getting married outside, you’re going to need SPF, especially if your wedding is abroad and good weather is standard.

In this case, talk to your photographer and he/she should be able to adjust the flash/setting used so you can sort the problem before it happens.
