Three reasons brides can get away with wearing minimal make-up when getting married in Gibraltar

Your wedding will surely be the most special day of your life, so you’ll no doubt want to look your best! This, however, doesn’t mean that you have to cake yourself in make-up before saying ‘I do’. While many women feel the need to apply the likes of foundation, mascara and lipstick before getting hitched, you can actually limit the need for these – and in the process sport a more natural look – if you choose to get tie the knot abroad. Let’s look at three reasons why you can get away with wearing minimal make-up if you have a Gibraltar wedding.


Those lovely temperatures won’t just make it a dream to waltz down the aisle and drink champagne. Instead, the weather can also bless you with a lovely tan before your big day. Throughout the year the sun is much more powerful in Gibraltar than it is in the UK, reaching averages of 27 degrees during the summer months. This heat – teamed with clear blue skies – will be more than enough to give your face a consistent sun-kissed complexion without the need for make-up.


You’ll have surely heard about those women who work themselves to the bone putting the final touches on their wedding? Needless to say, this causes many sleepless nights. This, in turn, can wash out your complexion and leave you with bags under your eyes – ultimately increasing your need for added make-up. Don’t worry, you won’t need to worry about burning the candle at both ends if you’re getting married in Gibraltar. After all, you can just relax and leave the heavy lifting to a wedding planning company.


Stress can be a major factor in causing breakouts, which will need to be covered by make-up. Luckily, you can side-step the likelihood of this happening by choosing to tie the knot in Gibraltar. You’ll have little to be stressed about as you look forward to a wedding that also doubles up as a holiday, meaning you can stay positive and in high spirits as your big day moves closer and closer.

It’s almost time!
