Let those tears of joy flow free, and leave your lip liner at home because pairing your wedding outfit with barely-there makeup is a bona fide way to keep that outfit looking fresh. For this, it’s all about: BB cream for colour correction without the heavy-duty coverage; cream blush and bronzer because they put fresh-faced on the map; and lip balm to add a little something-something to your pout. Best part of bare-faced? It takes little effort to remove. So you can head from bar to bed, without the military cleansing.
4 weddings and an outfit: how to recycle your wedding look without anyone noticing
Like Keira Knightley – who’s stepped out in her Chanel wedding dress numerous times since tying the knot – everyone wants an excuse to wear a beloved outfit more than once. Unlike Keira, our budgets don’t give us much choice in the matter – and with four weddings in one summer, if it’s a different friendship group, you can bet your bottom dollar we’ll be re-wearing. Here’s where your best pals – nails, hair and makeup – come in. Their ability to make you feel like new in, how shall we put it, a familiar outfit, is second to none.
