Bridal Beauty Tips
If you’re having a high summer wedding then check out my must-have beauty buys and top tips to help you take centre stage.
For glamorous eyes experiment with a range of eyeshadow palettes. The versatile and contrasting colours allow you to create a multitude of makeup looks that range from the simplest to the most sophisticated. In general pick 4 complementary colours and apply the lightest shade on the inner part of the upper eyelid and the darkest shade along the lash line, blending up and out. For effect shade one of the remaining colours under the outer corner of the eyebrows. To intensify your look or make it more sophisticated, apply a fourth shade under the eye: - for more intensity, use the darker shade – for more radiance and light, use the brighter shade.
I recommend: Urban Decay Basics Palette and the Naked Palettes from the Naked Basics Collection. Alternatively, for something more dramatic try Urban Decay Moondust eyeshadow, Dior 5 Couleurs Palette.
