“Wedding make-up is classic, but has seasonal trendy twists,” says Hollywood make-up maestro, Huda. Wedding speaks exclusively to her about 2010’s catwalk trends.
A classic look with a femme fatale touch. Add a touch of plum, a hint of berry or turn up the red.
A big trend in the West and now one in the East – make a lot of make-up look less. With glowing skin and perfectly shaped eyebrows, this look is a classic.
Copper is one of the strongest make-up trends of 2010, be it wedding or otherwise. Enjoy the sultry trend on your big day.
Jewel tones have made a come-back in a big way for winter. Purple seems to be the hue du jour. Add that bit of fun and femininity to your bridal look.
Smokey eyes are now a staple, but grey smoky eyes is the new trend within the trend. Keep it lighter in the day and add more by night. Make sure the lips are nude though.
Huda’s 7 Tips
1 Moisture Splurge: Wear a moisturiser, which is low in SPF, so it doesn’t reflect too much light. I love Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturiser – with SPF 15, it works for every skin type.
2 Last Your Lippie: Apply a touch of foundation followed by powder to your lips, then use a lip-liner and a long-lasting lipstick like Revlon’s Colorstay Overtime Lipcolour. Don’t gloss as it causes the colour to move.
3 Darken The Eyes: Use the super dark Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner which lasts all day.
4 Lash ‘Em Silly: There may be a few tears, so go for waterproof mascara. Lancome Hypnose Waterproof adds volume and drama.
5 Highlight Just Right: Appearing fresh is a must. Highlighter will brighten your look. Apply Smashbox Softlights in Shimmer on your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose with a hint on the chin and brow bone.
6 Shine-On: It is your day to shine, but make sure you shine in the right areas. Matt the typically greasy infamous T-Zone with a mattifying primer. I love Makeup Forever’s All Mat Primer, which keeps make-up in place and fills in fine lines too.
7 Raise That Brow: A good set of brows makes or breaks your overall look. MAC’s Eyebrow Pencil in Lingering works on everyone, light or dark, the natural colour makes good pictures too.
