The Bridal Look

If you’re saying, “I do”, you’ll want to dazzle. You’ll need a look that will see you through a day of celebration and an evening of festivities. So, to make your special day, that little bit more special, here’s your guide to mastering bridal beauty.


1
PRIMER

Minimise imperfections by applying a primer all over your face. A primer will create an even base for your foundation and ensure it lasts the day. As you’re going to be photographed, avoid brightening products that will appear white in flash photography.





2
FOUNDATION

Apply a thin layer of foundation to your face. To keep skin looking natural, apply makeup in daylight and pay special attention to your hairline, jaw and neck to avoid patchiness. Be sure to pick a long-lasting foundation – after all you’ve got a big day ahead!






3
CONCEALER

If you need extra coverage, use a concealer to hide any blemishes, circles under your eyes, or redness around your nose.






4
POWDER

Using a big brush, lightly powder your T-zone to smooth skin and lock in your makeup. We recommend keeping a compact powder close by for touch-ups later in the day.





5
EYE SHADOW

Now for your eyes. Start by applying a creamy shadow to your eyelids – we chose a vanilla tone. Then, take a lighter shade and dust over your eyelid, working up to the brow bone to highlight. Finally work a third shade – a chocolate brown – into the crease of your eyelid and along your lower lash line. Blend well.







6
EYE PENCIL

Select a waterproof eye liner pencil in black or dark brown, and rim your upper and lower lash lines.






7
MASCARA

Complete your eye makeup by gently curling your eyelashes and applying waterproof mascara.






8
BRONZE AND BLUSHER

Brush a bronzer under your cheekbones and across your temple. Then add colour with a blusher, applying to the apples of your cheeks.






9
LIPS

Use a lip pencil to line your lips as this will lock in your lipstick. Then apply lipstick with a brush – we love this season’s berry tones.
