I have dehydrated skin, and I'm worried my make-up will stick to the dry patches. How can I get around this?
Ashleigh says: "My bridal make-up trials are around six weeks before the wedding date, and I always do a skin analysis for my brides-to-be to make recommendations for changes in those weeks. For those with dry skin issues, I'd make sure the cleanser being used isn't too harsh (avoid wipes) and followed up by a good moisturiser, which needn't cost the world. A night cream containing AHA's is also so essential and speeds up skin cell renewal. Then once or twice a week, use a mild facial exfoliator.
"On the big day, your make-up artist should spritz dry areas of your skin before moisturising, which helps to lock in extra moisture. A hydrating primer should then be used – steer clear of any mattifying products which will make the problem worse. There are lots of foundations available for dryer skins; my personal favourites are NARS Sheer Glow and MAX Studio Face and Body Foundation. Finally, only use setting powder on areas such as your t-zone and avoid dry areas. Then go and enjoy your day, with your luminous, juicy skin!"
