How to make your makeup last EXTRA longer?

A few weeks before my makeup gig, my client's wedding coordinator messaged me saying "Please make sure Julie's makeup on her wedding wouldn't melt". I said "Of course!". But I got sooo curious. So I asked the bride during our trial makeup what they're up to. Watch this video for one of the most unique weddings I've witnessed.

This is an unofficial video.

Nice noh? Kudos to Redefineweddings for the amazing on site video presentation and to Social Happenings for the wonderful idea. And of course! to the couple (Julie and Jess) for being so game to make their special day a very memorable one.

Weddings nowadays can be exhausting especially for the bride. Starting from the photoshoot at the hotel, church and before the reception. What more if you're riding the LRT? If I'm the bride, I'd really sweat to the max! After the wedding, I said "the Graftobian setting spray didn't fail me!"

Of course the primer and the makeup application adds to the strength to the makeup. But if you want it smudgeproof, waterproof and last for more than 12 hours, this magic liquid is the key! I haven't used any other brands of setting spray yet but this one works for me already. In fact, I didn't do much retouching to the bride. Just blotted some powder on the nose and t-zone. You just have to be careful when spraying this after the makeup. It should be at least 10 inches away from the face as it tends to get shiny if sprayed directly to an area. I use my airbrush to put this for a finer application.
