Wedding make-up. The natural look

Aug 25, 2008
This look is just best for someone who doesn't wear much make-up but wants to look polished on the day. Or for someone who wants an underplayed look. Celebrity example - Jennifer Anniston Begin with the right foundation for your skin tone if you need it, or skip straight to the Concealer Palette To give your complexion more radiance apply Skin Illuminator in Champagne before foundation or concealer. EYES - Apply Crystal Taupe Eye Shine just to the lids. - Accent the outer corners with the Powder Pencil in Brown Suede. - Highlight under the arch of the brows with the lightest shade from the Toffee Trio. - Finish off with Waterproof Mascara in Black CHEEKS - Using the Face Trio in Toffeedot the middle shade from the Trio along your cheekbones and blend with fingertips. Now using brush #2 from the Brush Set, sweep the powder from the Trio over the cheeks. This really helps your blush look good all day. Use the lightest shade from the Trio to accent the tops of your cheekbones. Add Waterproof mascara in Black. LIPS - Apply Lip Base first to keep your lip colour on longer. - Define the shape of your lips with the Natural Lip Pencil - Finish off with a touch of Not Too Nude lip duo. Apply the Not Too Nude liquid lip colour first then follow with a touch of gloss. Complete the look with a dusting of Universal Yellow Powder just on your t-zone.

SUN KISSED This is a fantastic look for a summer wedding. Celebrity example: Jennifer Lopez Commence with right foundation for your skin tone or skip straight to the Concealer Palette. Help with complexion by a glow mix a little Shimmer Tint in Bronze with your foundation or the Concealer Palette. All you'll need is the Summer Glow Trio. The carefully sel;ected shades of this Trio have been specially designed to compliment and enhance your complexion. The (matte) Bronze adds warmth to your complexion without looking shiney. The Bloom (apricot/pink) does just that, brings a gentle flush of colour. And the Glow (shimmery soft gold) accents and highlights with a subtle sheen. It comes with a uniquely designed multi retractable brush. The brush offers two settings so that you can get a variety of effects from your Trio.

How to get a Sun Kissed Look: - Start by applying a hint of colour to your complexion with the bronze shade Use the Multi brush open to the maximum setting to lightly dust all over your face. Don't forget your neck. Put a little extra where the sun hits naturally, cheeks, bridge of the nose, above the arch of the brows. Now set the Multi Brush to demi and add a little on your eye lids.

To create sculpted cheeks - keep the brush on the demi setting and apply the bronze shade just down below your cheek bones. Using bronzer on its own can look marvellous but I wanted to give that extra Wow! which is why I've included the other 2 colours Bloom & Glow. - Add a hint of colour with Bloom. Using the Multi Brush set on full, smile and sweep Bloom over the apples of the cheeks.

Eyes- Then set the Multi Brush to demi and add a little Bloom to your eye lids. -Next use the Multi Brush on the demi setting and sweep Glow neath the arch of brows, along the top of the cheek bone and along your nose. Finish off with Waterproof mascara.

- Complete this look with a touch ofIncognito Lip Shine or one of the delicious shades from the Fudge Flip Kit.

Top Tip: To keep your brush clean simply swipe over a tissue.

EVENING or Glamorous LOOK A great look, that's glamorous and striking without being over the top. Celebrity example: Catherine Zeta Jones. Commence with right foundation for your skin tone, or skip straight to the Concealer Palette. Help with complexion by more radiance apply Skin Illuminator in Champagne before foundation or concealer. EYES - Eyes are dramatic yet easy to achieve, using a mix of soft shimmers and charcoals. The key to this look is BLENDING. Use either the applicator or your fingers to apply the Caviar shadow just to your lids. A light application will give you a soft charcoal effect while layering will create a more deep dramatic look. Put a bit more emphasis on the outer corners and way along the base of your lower lashes for a smoky look. If your eyes are deep set then extend the charcoal shade slightly above the lids to get that soft smoky look. Now add some Wow!! with the Black / Silver Glitter Pencil applied over the Caviar Shadow and blended with your finger to achieve a twinkling effect. Next sweep the Champagne Shadow just down below the arch of your brows to accent and lift. Finish off with a generous amount of black Waterproof mascara. CHEEKS - Cheeks are subtly sculpted with a flush of colour. Apply three dots of Cinnaberry just under the cheek bones and to the apples of the cheeks. To achieve a more chiselled look, accent the top of your cheek bones with a touch of Champagne. LIPS - Lips are emphasised with a seductive red. Using the lip brush apply Cranberry Crush a sheer red for a beautifully defined pout.DIRECTIVE LOOK

CHEEKS - For a flush of colour, apply the middle shade from the Angelic Face Trio to the apples of the cheeks and top with the Shimmer Stick in Bermuda for a healthy glow. - Highlight the cheek bones and below the eyes with a sweep of Down below Eye & Face Brightener. LIPS - Apply Lip Base first to keep your lip colour on longer. - Lips are kept fresh and sheer with Damson Lip Glaze or by mixing any of the colours from the Bon Bon Flip Kit.

Classic Timeless Bride

Begin with the right foundation for your skin tone if you need it, or skip straight to the Concealer Palette To give your complexion added radiance apply Skin Illuminator in Champagne before foundation or concealer Then create your entire look with the: Timeless Face Palette I have chosen each shade in this palette to compliment every skin tone, eye colour and age so you can wear them with confidence. The palette consists of 5 products: 1 powder blush in Rose Glow, 3 eye shadows in Chiffon, Sheer Taupe and Bitter Chocolate and Lip Tint Plus in Hint of Tint. The palette also comes with a double ended brush for eyes and lips Let's Begin with eyes. I've brought together 3 timeless shades. The palest called Chiffon is a beautiful cream shade with a slight sheen. Use this as a wash of colour over your lids up to the brow bone to brighten and refresh your eyes. It's also the best base colour for a professional eye make-up look. The mid-tone shade `Sheer Taupe' is one of those chameleon like shades which takes on it's own individual shade to suit you. Simply brush it over the lid to the socket line, then blend it upwards and outwards to give your eyes a touch of subtle colour. The darkest shadow of the three is `Bitter Chocolate' especially chosen for its sheer texture. This means you can wear it as subtly or strongly as you want - just simply layer to the intensity of colour you want. This shade is also ideal for defining your socket line or lining your lashes. 5 steps to classic eye make-up You can wear each of the eye colours alone or blend them together for a more sophisticated look. 1 Dust the surface of your eyelid with Universal Yellow Powder to ensure an even, oil-free base. 2 Apply Chiffon over your eyelid up to your brow bone. 3 Smooth Sheer Taupe over your lids up to the socket and blend this upwards and outwards with the brush. When you look straight ahead this shade should appear just above your socket line and disappear into the Chiffon shade. 4 Take the darkest shade Bitter Chocolate on the brush and make a C shape in the outer corners to open up your eyes. Then, blend this shade lightly along the socket line, so the colour fades away at the inner corners. Take a cotton bud and smudge Bitter Chocolate along your lower lashes. Again, graduating from dark in the outer corners to invisible in the inner corners. 5 Use a cotton bud to dot Chiffon in the inner corners of your eyes and Finish up with Lush Mascara. Rose Glow Blush This is the best colour for giving your face a lift. Over the years, I've found that women of all skin tones benefit from warm pink blush. It gives a healthy look like you've been out for a brisk walk. Tips on where to apply your blush * Let's Begin with classic way. Apply your blush just slightly below your cheek bone, from the apple blending up ward towards the ear. This will give a slightly sculpted effect. Great if you want bring out your cheek bones, and/or thin your face. You can also apply blush to the apple of your cheeks. To find your apples simply smile, and put your blush on the 'roundy' bit. This gives a really fresh glow, which looks great on almost everyone.

* Don't put blusher too high up because this can go onto the eye area and close up the space between your eyes and cheeks. Lip Tint Plus Lip Tint Plus in Hint of Tint completes the Timeless Face Palette. This sheer lip treatment that has a hint of rosy colour and is packed with vitamins A, C & E to protect your lips from damage and Avocado, Camomile, Jojoba and Sweet Almond Oil to condition your lips as you wear it. Smooth it on anytime with your fingertip or with the lip brush. Wear it alone for just a hint of colour or with any of the gorgeous lip glosses. Finish off with Waterproof Mascara.
