When choosing your Foundation for your Perfect Day there are a few things you need to consider, it needs to be natural looking, have good Longevity, be a perfect match to your body.... Don't be shy go to a few department stores & ask for some samples (That's why they have them) and test them out over a day or two, take photos of yourself outside in natural light to make sure you don't get flash back from the SPF or that it doesn't oxidise throughout the day... as I'm sure no one wants to look like a Casper the Ghost or an Oompa Lumpa in their Wedding Pictures!
