A FINE ROMANCE Expert hair and make-up advice for looking flawless on your big day
Happy is the bride the sun shines on, and happier still is she who radiates natural loveliness in the prettiest perfume, make-up and accessories. By Katy Young & Siân Ranscombe
Rural brides should keep the palette soft. Enhance fresh, dewy skin with a dusting of pink blush to the apples of the cheeks, and a dab of lip colour on the Cupid’s bow. Follow the example of Pippa Middleton at her Bucklebury wedding, or the soignée chef Laura Jackson who married on a Cornish beach, and gather your locks in a chignon, kept in place with a styling spray such as Oribe’s Swept Up, which provides both volume and hold in stiff breezes.
The modern city bride is chic, her taste exquisite, her style understated. Eschew heavy foundations for just a little concealer to reveal your lit-from-within skin; a look perfected by Arizona Muse at her London nuptials. Add elegance with a statement lipstick, such as Chanel’s Rouge Allure in Incantevole or Chantecaille’s Lip Sleek in Flamingo. Finally, allow your romantic side to flourish with a spritz of floral fragrance.
