Literally the blushing bride

I have a problem in that I go red easily - im so nervous that all my pictures of walking down the aisle and saying my vows il be bright red. I also get a sweaty back and forehead when im nervous too. Iv had a reduction so I want to a wear a strapless dress but just too worried about my sweaty back - solutions please! Anyone else like this or is it just me?!!

    Regarding the blushing, I have the same problem and I hate it - in all the pictures of me out and about at parties etc I'm bright red. Grrr. In the latest issue of Y&YW they recommend using a moisturiser with a green base to neutralise the redness. My friend uses a green concealer on red spots and it does work. The magazine recommends Clinique - Redness Solutions Daily Protective Base or No7 Colour Calming Primer.
  • You can get green foundation stuff to counteract the redness from blushing

    Don't know about sweating though, sorry, maybe speak to the doctor?
  • people can get injections to stop excessive sweating, ask your doctor. yeah green based make-up should help with redness.

    good luck xxxx

    With the sweaty back I'd say a long veil should cover any obvious sweating. Plus you can wipe before you walk into ceremony and once your done take a moment to refresh.
  • Hi girls - i too am always the red one in photos - so i now use all of cliniques redness solutions stuff - it is pricey, but i really think its worth it - go in and speak to one of the ladies and they can give youa trial. I use their cleanser every day, and then the moisturiser and then their even tone foundation. They also have a few other bits and bobs - if your also going out of the country - its always cheaper in duty free!!!

    work so well for me - i had my first experience of a photo on a night out and i even thought "wow i look pale!!" even though i looked normal - in comparison to what i used to be it was incredible!!!! made all the money spent worth it.

    Let me know if you want to know anything else. hope this helps! xx

    I'm just the same - I have a pretty much constantly red face!! (As do my Mum and Grandma... darn genes!). I got Harvey Nicks vouchers for my birthday, so I'm going to go along at the weekend and see what they can offer! I have a few months to go yet, so thought I'd give it a go and see what the results are (bit scared of looking like a green monster on the pics!).

    Nice to know I'm not the only one - feels liks it sometimes! xx
  • Hey!

    I have the same problem too, re the redness! Along with the green coloured cream have you thought about getting a different foundation? I would really recommend a mineral powder one as they cover redness really well and don't slide off if you get a bit hot! I use bareMinerals by Bare Escentuals which you can get in either House of Fraser or Debenhams I think and Selfridges do it too. It's all natural ingredients and the powder has light reflecting bits in which will give you a lovely glow on your big day and cover up any red. You can get a starter pack with everything in including really good brushes for about £40. Loads of other make up ranges now do mineral powders too. Hope this helps a bit!Good luck! image
