The bride can feel good about choosing a makeup which lasts throughout the wedding day and night. It is up to the discretion of the makeup artists to provide that superior look with the formulations they work with. By applying a primer followed by a full coverage foundation they ensure that you are ready to flaunt your look. The lipstick rubs off during the day so you would require reapplications to look gorgeous all day long.

2. Easy application:

Traditional makeup cannot instantly camouflage your tough scars and pimples and apply too much powder on the acne attracts a lot of attention.

2. Feels heavy on the skin:

Due to its thicker consistency, its overuse on the skin can give a cakey look thus making it feel heavy on the skin. The chemicals in the makeup are harmful to the skin texture and may cause allergies and dry skin in some cases.

3. Requires touch up:

Makeup brushes, sponges have to be cleaned regularly to avoid bacteria to develop. Same makeup piece is used on many brides which transfer the bacteria from one to another. Lip pencils also should be wiped with alcohol wipes before the next use.

Traditional makeup is best for that natural, radiant and bright look on your wedding day.
