Create a distinctive look for your big day that’s still soft and feminine and transcends trends. Accentuate eyes with flirty lines, focus on flawless skin and highlight your best features
Blushed lips Lips are subtle yet bring all the elements together for the perfect polish. The key word is ‘moisturised’ so apply lip balm before colour – wait a few minutes to let it sink in so you have a slip-free surface for your lip colour. Use a lip tint in a hue one shade darker than your natural lip colour.
TIP: Gently exfoliate your lips using a toothbrush the night before to guarantee a smooth surface in the morning. Highlighted contours With such a neutral colour palette, highlighting certain features is key to creating dimension. Dab cream highlighter along the cheekbones, bridge of the nose and the brow bone. Use highlighter instead of blush for a subtle glow to the skin.
TIP: Apply highlighter with your nger and use a dabbing/stippling motion to achieve a soft, dewy look. Finish off by setting your make-up with a spritz of a facial mist.
Flirty lines A little drama is a must on your big day. It’s all about the classic cat-eye line, worked effortlessly across the lid to elongate and draw attention to the eyes. Start by priming the lids for a smooth base and sweep a neutral eyeshadow in a shade darker than your skintone across the entire lid. Line the upper lash line using a liquid or gel liner and extend the ick for total feline appeal. A pair of false lashes will add extra oomph – double up the lashes to create volume, but keep the rest of the face clean, with a neutral lip and highlights along the cheekbones.
TIP: Fill in your lash line at the roots of the false lashes with liquid eyeliner to cover any gaps or visible glue.
