When you’re getting married, you want to look your absolute best. Whether it’s a natural or more glamorous look, there’s one thing most brides and we makeup artists agree on…it’s the beautiful ‘lit from within’ glow that you absolutely want to achieve on your special day!
There are so many ways to achieve this. Mostly, you’ll glow naturally with excitement and anticipation of walking down the aisle, but you can give yourself a little glowy boost with my tips below.
Remove any dullness
Exfoliation is an excellent way to brighten up a dull complexion and to smooth the surface of your skin. I would recommend a good exfoliation once a week, as you don’t want to irritate or harm your delicate skin. The Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting Exfoliator has a luxurious cream-to-foam texture, leaving your skin fresh and clean. Clearer complexion, here we come.
Create a rosy glow
Light pinks, barely-there nudes and coppers and rosy cheeks create a beautifully naturally glowing look. A dash of highlighter in the inner eye adds a real pop. I love the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand in Pinkgasm palette at the moment!
Hydrate and Moisturise
I can’t press upon you the importance of hydrated skin enough! Moisturised and hydrated skin will give you a plumper, healthy glow. Try Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, designed to support a soft, smooth and hydrated complexion. Lightweight in texture, the formula is easily absorbed.
Makeup doesn’t need to just be for the face! With some cleverly applied bronzer to shoulders, collarbones and décolletage, you can achieve an incredibly radiant glow. I use MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Bronzer for a flattering, natural finish.
Finish off your beautiful base with a liquid highlighter to take your glow to new heights. Adding a fantastic cult highlighter such as ICONIC London Illuminator pulls it all together.
Water and Sleep!
There is no product or replacement for just taking the time to slow down a little bit and relax your body and mind, while keeping it hydrated with water. Your skin will thank you with that all-important lit-from-within glow.
