Over to you Lauren…
The big day is here, and it’s time to look & feel your best! Let your natural beauty dazzle all day, with fluttery eye lashes, big beautiful eyes and a natural glossy lip with this gorgeous look. Here’s how to do it…
Apply that gal primer lightly and evenly all over your complexion, working from the centre of the face out. This will create a beautifully bright and radiant platform for your makeup!
Apply hello flawless oxygen WOW foundation. Work from the centre of the face out, to ensure you get maximum coverage to the T-Zone and no product build up at the hairline.
Top tip: You’ll be photographed from all angles, so don’t forget those ears!
Stay don’t stray is perfect for your big day to conceal any redness around the eyes, and make your eye shadow stay put! Dot the product 360 around the eye and blend with your ring finger or a concealer brush.
Time to frame those eyes with a little gimme brow through the eyebrow! Go away from the hair, then with!
Top tip: Get the Benefit signature brow wax and tint to ensure your brows are in tip top shape prior to your big day!
Big beautiful eyes is the perfect pallet for your big day! Use the concealer to add a bit more coverage to the underneath of your eyes. This will hide any lack of sleep from being too excited 😉
Top tip: Keep it light! It’s easier to add than take product away!
Use the pinky colour within your pallet and pat all over the eye lid. By patting the product on to keep the pigment of the shadow strong!
Top tip: Fold over a tissue and hold it to the corner of your eye. This will prevent any fall down and keep a nice sharp line to give an instant eye lift!
Use the middle shade on the outer corner of the eye and slightly blend into the socket. Then use the darkest shade in the outer corner of the eye and blend up until three quarters of the way along the lash line to add depth to the eye.
Top tip: Blend in circular motions to make sure the blend is seamless!
Next, dab some of the lightest colour on the inner corner of the eye. This will make those eyes look even more big and beautiful!
Using the darkest shade, run the shadow along the lower lash line. This will create a gorgeous smokey but natural look!
Time to layer up those lashes! Use roller lash for a naturally fluttery look!
Dot high beam along the brow bone, top of the cheek bone and down those nose. Then, use your finger to lightly bold. This will give a gorgeous glow on your big day!
Using a fluffy brush, swirl into hervana box o’powder and tap off the excess. Then, apply to the apples of the cheeks and stroke up towards the tops of the ears.
Sweep some POREfessional agent zero shine lightly over face to bring the look together. You’ll only need a small amount!
