It was exactly a week ago that we all shouted "Happy New Year!!!".

MODERN BRIDE BEAUTY

Weightless-Foundation-Copacabana_Nars
[fusion_text]By Beauty Editor, Darcy McGrath Less is more when creating a subtle illusion of timeless beauty. Make Up is the cherry on top and each bride wants to look and feel individual. To achieve Val's bridal beauty glow, start with NARS New All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation, which promises 16 hour paraben free coverage.
