Stopping mascara smudges

I’m getting married in September and, being an emotional person who cries at almost anything, I’m fully expecting to blubber a bit on my big day. What can I do to stop my mascara smudging or wiping away when the tears come?


You need a very small, discreet, and carefully stocked make-up purse, guarded by your oaid of Honour! oascara does smudge easily – even the waterproof kind – so make sure you have a cotton bud and a small amount of your liquid make-up. When you’ve wiped away the tears, apply the make-up quickly with the cotton bud – and repeat as neccessary.
