Step 1 – Apply primer & foundation

Natural bridal makeup step 1

For a wedding look that’ll stand the test of time, applying a primer is an absolute must. So with this in mind, start with an illuminating primer all over the face to give the base a natural glow. Over this, apply liquid foundation all over and cover any dark circles or blemishes with concealer.

Step 2 – Use bronze shimmer stick

Take a bronze, shimmer stick (for added ease) and draw lines to the temples and cheekbones. Blend with a sponge or fingertips until you have a shimmering glow. To keep shine under control throughout the day, apply a translucent powder over the foundation. Focus on the T-zone area as this will minimise any unwanted shine, but will keep the cheeks looking dewy.

Step 3 – Use brow gel & apply eyeshadow

Brush through brows using brow gel, this will help shape them and hold wiry hairs in place. Next, take a waterproof eyeshadow crayon and apply across eyelids up to the crease. Blend up towards the brows by dabbing with your finger as this will soften the look. Add definition to the eyes by drawing a thin line with brown waterproof eyeliner close to the upper lash line and the corners under the eyes. Blend with a brush to soften the lines.

Step 4 – Use an eyelash curler & mascara

Give your lashes a little natural lift by using an eyelash curler, before coating with mascara. Always opt for waterproof products on the eyes (with mascara being no exception) as the big day is often an emotional roller-coaster! 

Step 5 – Apply lip balm & tint

Coat lips in a layer of lip balm and add a hint of colour by using a lip/cheek tint in a pastel pink hue.

Step 6 – Set the look with spray

To ensure your look will last, finish with a spritz of setting spray. Always hold the spray at a distance so that the application is a soft mist.
