“This versatile look, great for a morning ceremony, evokes chic sleekness and a touch of romance. To wear it into the evening as well, simply layer on darker shades like deep blue or purple, to add more drama to the eyes,” says Terence.
Prime with Sheer Fluid Veil SPF 24/PA+++ ($100). Next, apply Radiant Fluid Foundation SPF25/PA++ ($175).
Fill in the gaps with Eyebrow Pencil in 201 Dark Brown ($96) as well as Eyebrow and Eyeliner Compact ($120) to enhance the shape of your brows. You can add more dimension with a lighter shade towards the ends.
Tip: The shape of your brow is correct when the beginning of it is aligned with the centre of the nostril, and the arch falls over the back third of the eye. Arches look best when they’re within one to two shades of your hair colour.
For longer-lasting makeup, prime with Correcting Cream Veil ($100). Apply the lilac from Eye Colour Quad in 304 ($80) all over the lid and along the lower lash line. Then shade the outer eye corners and lower lash line with the same colour. This is effective for brides with hooded eyes. Violet offers brides a modern look while still being alluring enough for weddings.
Luminizing Face Enhancer in 11 ($140) creates a soft highlight. Dust Cheek Duo in 3 ($134) on the apples of your cheeks for a soft flush.
Give them two coats of Extra Rich Lipstick in 111 ($70) for a natural-looking, just-bitten pout.
