Would you dare to go bare on your wedding day?

With the advent of social media and the rise of ‘selfie culture’, women have never felt more pressure to look picture perfect all the time. This pressure is at its highest on a woman’s wedding day.

Why I am taking on the challenge?
To be honest when I heard about the competition I thought it was to win free wedding skin care, which I was desperate for. When I found out that it was a foundation free wedding challenge I was intrigued to see whether the product would actually work. I am taking this challenge up because I'd love glowing, radiant skin on my wedding day where the photos last forever and the prize at the end is just the cherry on top.

How I feel about walking down the aisle foundation free?
It's daunting. Every woman knows how important this day is and that you want to look your best. I love photos, they are a permanent memory and that is a big aspect of our wedding. I am nervous that if I do not look my best, that those are forever. Although I am also excited to see what Nimue can do for me and my skin. I am ready to start this journey to walk down the aisle foundation free.
