Now that summer is here loads of people will be jetting off to their favourite holiday destinations for a few days of relaxation and sunning themselves on the beach.
Of course, this is also the perfect opportunity to slap on the sun cream and spend some time gradually working on a lovely natural tan.
But if you've got your nuptials coming up over the next few months you may have been saving like crazy for your wedding cake, flowers, venue and honeymoon, leaving nothing for a week-long break on the beaches of Spain.
Luckily, shops these days are filled with a plethora of different tanning products and you can easily get yourself a golden glow with a few careful applications from a bottle.
But once you have achieved the ideal sunny look to show off your stunning white wedding dress how do you go about matching your makeup to your new skin tone when you're used to applying bronzer and blusher to a much paler complexion?
According to one expert, it's all about pastel shades and you should be working baby-coloured tones for the perfect summer wedding look.
Ariane Poole is a celebrity makeup artist who has worked with the likes of Penelope Cruz, Catherine Zeta Jones, Uma Thurman and Yasmin Le Bon.
She says the pastel shades that first started making waves in the cosmetics industry are here to stay for the summer and despite what some people may think, they look great with a golden complexion.
"They aren't really the colours you would normally think to put with a tan, but a lot of the designers were mixing those kinds of shades together and they are kind of quirky but they really do work," Ms Poole explains.
Fashionistas seem to be all over this trend as well, as Vogue reported earlier this year that baby blue, pastel pink, pale yellow, spearmint and soft lilac tones created the "prettiest palette" for a "mesmerising look".
The magazine recommended teaming the tones with sheer, floaty fabrics, wispy feathers and plenty of tulle. This sounds like a recipe for the perfect wedding dress and on a summer's day, this kind of gown could match shimmering pastel makeup to a tee.
But be warned, don't rush out and buy the first pastel-coloured products you can get your hands on. Ms Poole warns that you need to buy sheer colours rather than opaque versions otherwise they will sit on top of your tan and make it look "ashy".
Those of you who are planning to tie the knot abroad will more than likely be after the perfect summer complexion to ensure you look radiant in all the wedding photography with a sunset beach backdrop behind you and your new husband.
If this is the case you might want to capture the shades of the fading light in your makeup and Ms Poole says metallic tones like sheer copper or bronze, gun metal and "taupe-type colours" work really well with a tan.
She thinks these warmer tones match a sweep of apricot blusher on the cheeks as they don't have the bluey undertones of winter makeup.
Whichever you choose, you're bound to have a beautiful summery look that dazzles friends and family as you walk down the aisle.
