You’ve been her shoulder to cry on after break-ups, congratulated her when she passed her driving test and watched proudly from the audience as she graduated from university. It’s hard to believe that today is your daughter’s wedding.
Before you help fasten the buttons at the back of her bridal gown, spare a little time for yourself. Once you’re feeling revitalised after a long soak in the bath, begin prepping your face for make-up with a touch of Clarins Double Serum. The luxurious product targets all aspects of ageing, helping your skin to look firmer and any wrinkles smoother. Pores will also appear to be less visible and your complexion will regain its glow.
For a flawless finish, we’d recommend opting for a light-infusing foundation such as Clarins True Radiance. Warm the product in your hands and apply with your fingertips, working from the middle of the face outwards. Blend carefully around the neck and ears to ensure even all-over coverage.
While defined eyes are perfectly appropriate, avoid harsh shades and heavy liner. Opt for a sweep of something more neutral instead. When it comes to brows, Clarins Perfect Eyes & Brows Palette has all of your special occasion needs covered. The luminous pink shadow will brighten eyes and a dab of powder and holding wax will create the illusion of salon-shaped brows. Pluck out any stray hairs with the miniature tweezers.
To complete your mother of the bride make-up, add colour to your cheeks with a little cream blush and extend your lashes with long-lasting mascara. Our final words of advice: Be sure to pop a packet of tissues into your clutch, it’s likely you’ll need them.
