Marie Claire (South Africa) - - CATWALK BRIDE -

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.
