Beauty Editor - Top Tip

The Mother-of-the-Bride should look as radiant as the bride so adopt a 'less-is-more' make up rule. Avoid wearing a heavy foundation that cakes into fine lines and makes skin look older. Liquid foundations and loose powders that eliminate shine work best.

Apply subtle, neutral browns and soft golds to the lids. It's inevitable you'll shed a tear or two so use a waterproof mascara on the lashes. Don't over-do the blusher, use a soft peach or pink and apply to the apples of the cheeks for a natural, rosy glow.

Finally, opt for lipsticks or glosses in bright, light shades rather than deep and dark. Darker shades make your lips look smaller and your face look hard.
