You’ve secured the venue, said yes to the dress and now it’s time to think about the beauty. With wedding season getting underway, we’ve called upon makeup artist and Official MECCA Beauty Junkie Gin [https://www.instagram.com/mecca_gin/] to share the most popular bridal look she gets requested in her chair. As a bride-to-be herself she has many “I dos” and don’ts to share – borrow her ideas, try something new and avoid being blue at all costs. Hit play.
Skin prep is so important on your wedding day! To moisturise and provide a base for concealer, Gin takes the Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream and applies it to her undereye and orbital eye area:
For a lightweight moisturiser that won’t disturb makeup, Gin applies the Tatcha The Water Cream:
Gin’s tip: Apply brows on clean skin before foundation. She uses the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil to fill them in using short, hair-like strokes and sets them using the Hourglass Arch Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel:
To prime, she uses MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in ‘Soft Ochre’:
Now for the PERFECT bridal palette: the famous Urban Decay Naked 3:
For a feminine touch, Gin uses the Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in ‘Kitten’:
To add intensity to her shimmer shadows, she uses the MAC Prep + Prime Fix+:
For a waterproof, wedding day appropriate eyeliner, Gin uses the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in ‘Intense Black’:
Gin applies the MECCA MAX Fluttering Falsies Knockout Lashes for extra drama on the eyes:
Moving onto complexion! Primer is a MUST on your wedding day. Gin loves the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer:
Next, Gin applies the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation:
For a cream highlighter, Gin uses the Hourglass Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick in ‘Champagne Flash’:
To conceal, she applies the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer:
Gin sweeps the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in ‘Dim Light’ over her face to set her concealer and foundation:
For that extra bit of insurance, Gin adds a bit of the Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder to any areas she gets oily quickly:
To add warmth to the skin, she applies the NARS Bronzing Powder in ‘Laguna’ and NARS Blush in ‘Orgasm:
Time for Gin’s favourite part – highlighter! She applies the Stila Heaven’s Hue Highlighter in ‘Kitten’:
For a softer look under the eye, Gin uses the Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in ‘Lionfish’ onto her waterline:
To complete the look, Gin uses the MAC Lip Pencil in ‘Soar’ and MAC Lipstick in ‘Faux’:
For the final step: Gin sprays the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist where she’d applied the highlighter, and the MAC Fix+ everywhere else:
That’s it! Would you wear this on your wedding day?
