In a Winter Wonderland, December and January destination brides always have to think of how to illuminate their skin on their wedding day. For my winter brides, I like to use Smashbox Photo Finish Luminizing Foundation Primer on the skin. It evens out the skin and gives my bride that beautiful luminous glow. In addition, it creates a smooth and perfect canvas. I like using a makeup brush as I apply this silky primer for an even distribution for foundation application.
To play up skin that still has a nice bronze, the Smashbox Photo Finish Bronzing Primer will enhance bronzed skin. Just like the foundation primer, the bronzing primer also has a silky blend of vitamins and antioxidants. The silicone emulsion will fill in fine lines as well as smooth out pores, skin texture and add a delicate bronze hue to the face. It’s a great product to use alone or with foundation, concealer or powder for a flawless finish.
As it snows on your wedding day, be sure that as you walk down the aisle you will be the only one glowing…let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
