Your East Anglian Wedding - December 2020/Janaury 2021 (Issue 46)

91 EXPERT ADVICE Latest looks Top tips on bridal make-up from local experts WHAT’S HOT What type of bridal make-up is likely to be trending in 2021? Lyndsay predicts: It’s all about the natural effect; skin looking like skin, healthy and glowing. For eyes we’ll be seeing more earthy tones, smoky brown, gold and rose gold, pink and cream with a lightly lined eye. Natural eyelashes are in, with a slick of good waterproof mascara, or alternatively light and wispy false lashes. For lips and cheeks think nude, peach or pink shades to reflect a fresh-faced look for spring and summer. Cream blushers and highlighters are set to be popular but only light contouring. The trick is for your make-up to bring out the best of your natural features without being over the top so you end up not looking like you. Eyebrows will be more natural and fluffy, but still neat and defined if you prefer, matching your own brow colour as closely as possible. For the finishing touch, I think lip glosses might also be makinga comeback. Lyndsay Hudson | Make-up artist | GET THE LOOK Leading Suffolk make-up artist Victoria Bradfield designed this romantic bridal look for a magical midsummer’s night styled shoot featured on page 93 this issue. To recreate it, here’s her step-by-step guide. ❤ I decided to keep Jade’s make-up quite simple and flawless to complement the soft lilac tones in her hair and the fairytale theme. I usually start with the eyes to avoid having to redo the base in the event of any flecks of shadow, mascara or liner smudges; especially helpful if you’re doing a smoky eye look. ❤ I always prep using Katherine Daniels Micellar Face & Eye Make-up Remover to make sure the skin is completely clean. ❤ Then apply primer, I like the Laura Mercier range and if extra pore control is needed I add a little Benefit POREfessional. ❤ Cover any dark circles, redness or blemishes around the eyes with NARS Creamy Concealer and set with a skin-tone eyeshadow on the lid area and up to the brow. Now you can start adding in colour. ❤ Use Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Primer on the lid to help the eyeshadow really pop then from the brand’s Carli Bybel Palette apply Mandala (lilac shimmer) over the entire lid. ❤ Add a slight flick with Blacktrack by MAC eyeliner; once set this liner doesn’t move! ❤ Instead of using a strip, I added in individual cluster lashes to build up the outer edge with a more subtle effect towards the inner corner, plus they give lashes a lovely fluffy look. ❤ Brows were brushed up and fixed with clear brow gel, using Charlotte Tilbury Brow Lift to fill any gaps. ❤ To keep the skin matte I used Dior Backstage Face & Body Foundation fixed with translucent loose powder by Laura Mercier with a sweep of NARS Laguna Bronzer and Gaiety Blush to finish off. ❤ MAC Frost Lipstick in Bombshell is a lovely shimmery pink shade and complemented the look perfectly. ❤ Finish with my go-to setting spray Urban Decay All Nighter, a kit essential.
