The royal wedding is in TWO days! A new princess is going to walk down the aisle and she is her own makeup artist. Wait, what? There are rumours that Meghan Markle is going to do her own makeup this Saturday and she hasn’t given anyone a clue as to what her bridal makeup will be. Well we know she is a fan of everyday, natural look and we’re sure she’ll do the usual (‘no makeup’ makeup) look on her wedding day, with just a little more drama.
First, let’s talk about what CLASSIC LOOK is. We all have varying ideas of what a classic makeup looks like. Kate Middleton (Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge), who also did her own bridal makeup in 2011, chose thick brows, flushed cheeks, rose-pink lipstick, and dark, heavily lined eyes for her wedding day. We see lots of photos of Meghan with the same look and she is confident in it, and we think she’ll wear the same on her wedding day, only with more hazy eyes like the one in the pic above.
Here is a step-by-step guide on how to achieve the classic Meghan Markle look using ELES Cosmetics:
For the base
All eyes, all cameras are on you on your wedding day (or any big event for that matter). The stress, the weather, and the non-stop activities can cause you to perspire and you need a pretty tough primer and foundation to handle all the pressure. Use a primer to keep your makeup in place for extended period of time, and a lightweight foundation that minimises fine lines and wrinkles and hides pores.
Retexturize and refine your skin, so that the foundation glides on smoothly and endures impeccably for hours longer. Try ELES Retexture Crème Face Primer
Hide your pores without blocking them. Achieve a smooth and silky finish with the ELES HD Luminous Foundation
Pimples tend to appear on the big day. We hope not but just in case you need to cover something, The ELES Photouch Concealer won’t disappoint you.
Forget everything else, here’s the ultimate palette to the rescue
You’re already thinking of so many things and you don’t need more pressure on the big day! Liane Scior, the creator of ELES Cosmetics, thinks it is smart to always have a palette that has everything you need to achieve the look you want. The latest palette that everyone is raving about is the ELES Hazy Daze Collection.
Mineral Highlighter – to add that beautiful glow
Mineral Blush in Berry – a touch of blush makes us look fresh and pretty
Mineral Shadow in Frappé – defines the eyes
Mineral Shadow in Chocolate – adds drama to our look
Use Frappe and Chocolate mineral eyeshadows to achieve Meghan’s signature hazy smudge look.
And now for the most important part: “You may now kiss the bride…”
You need an ELES Lip Stain in your life! This long-lasting lip stain will keep your lips covered with vibrant colour from AM to PM without that heavy, sticky or tacky feeling. You can kiss all day because it’s KISS PROOF and TRANSFER PROOF. Take it from Instagram and YouTube superstar Jade Madden…
All the shades look amazing but for this look we are trying to achieve, we highly recommend Retro Babe and Boho Chic.
This look is so easy! It’s simple and is fit for a princess. Try it and send us a photo, we might just feature you on Instagram. And finally, we can’t wait to see Meghan Markle on her wedding day. She said she’ll “do as she sees fit.” Let’s all see how it goes. We’re sure she’s going to look amazing!
