So on Wednesday I finally dragged myself off to the Trafford Centre at 11am and at 11pm I got home quite exhausted but with the dress above and a beautiful wedding present!
So this morning I woke up with bright red hot cheeks and a red nose - I'm still not quite sure how I'm going to conceal this problem on Friday if it's not gone but I'm quite thankful that I decided to Xen Tan and it is making the red...less red at least!
I decided with the dress having a hint of coral and it being a spring wedding I would keep my makeup quite fresh and dewy with a lovely soft but vibrant coral lip. I was tempted to buy some MAC Face & Body while in Selfridges but seeing as I don't tan that often I wouldn't end up using the darker shade of F&B I would of had to purchase. So I decided to get the free sample of the Bare Essential mineral foundation (the offer ended yesterday) in lightly fair I think (which actually isn't that fair as it's maybe a shade lighter than my tanned skin at the moment). I also picked up a sample of the Estee Lauder Double Wear light which matches perfectly and I'm hoping will look good in photos.
I also bought a liquid highlighter in Superdrugs from Accessorize (£7.00) to apply as a base over the DHC Velvet Touch primer - which definitely hides a multitude of sins (and pores) to add a dewy touch to the foundation.
