Prep the skin with Magic Cream
Magic Cream, Dhs400, Charlotte Tilbury
“I never, ever do make-up without Charlotte’s Magic Cream. I literally use it on every client, whether it’s a wedding day, an award show or a photo shoot. It is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins A, C and E, Camellia Oil and magic to give you a gorgeous, glowing, dewy, hydrated finish. On your wedding day, you really want to glow and this is Charlotte’s secret to magic skin.”
Set the t-zone with powder, but leave the cheekbones
Airbrush Flawless Finish powder, Dhs190, Charlotte Tilbury
“Use a finely milled powder to set your base. Charlotte’s Airbrush Flawless Finish powder is incredible as it is made with Rose Wax and Almond Oil, meaning it actually hydrates the skin and feels like silk when you glide it on. You can slip it into your clutch bag so easily and just touch up your T-Zone throughout the day, leaving the high points of your face glowing and dewy.”
Use a wet-look highlighter for a natural-looking glow
Hollywood Beauty Light Wand, Dhs165, Charlotte Tilbury
“I absolutely adore the Hollywood Beauty Light Wand. I like to apply it to the Cupid’s Bow, cheekbones, top and tip of the nose and the brow bone to really catch the light and give you a gorgeous, candle-lit glow.”
Opt for a dreamy, romantic looking eyeshadow with a touch of shimmering light play
Luxury Palette 'Pillow Talk', Dhs225, Charlotte Tilbury
“The Pillow Talk look is all about romance. From the Luxury Palette to the Lip Cheat and Matte Revolution Lipstick, the shades are the perfect nudey-pink, just-kissed, universally-flattering tones to create the dreamiest look for your wedding day. It’s an award-winning, best-selling shade for a reason ”
Always wear a signature Feline Flick
The Classic 'Audrey', Dhs95, Charlotte Tilbury
“For me, no eye look is complete without a feline flick. For bridal looks, I like to use a soft brown powder pencil like The Classic in Audrey and I draw along the outer corner of the eye and then extend up to just elongate the eye beautifully”
