Meghan Markle and her Classic Bridal Makeup

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.

Palette includes;

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!

How To Do Bridal Makeup

This week saw the very first Australian Vera Wang boutique open it’s doors and we’ve got wedding fever. Whether you’re the bride, a maid, the mother of the bride or a guest, you’re going to want a subtle but glamorous makeup look for the big day.

Although it is common for brides to hire a professional makeup artist for their big day, many women prefer to do their own makeup. In fact, it was rumored that the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton did her own makeup for her wedding day after taking professional courses! If you’re a bride who feels more comfortable being in control of the makeup brushes you should absolutely go for it.

We’ve put together a look that is simple, elegant and easy to achieve…

EYES
1. Apply a light layer of Mineral Eyeshadow in Opal over the entire eyelid to “open” and brighten the eyes, brush excess with a large fluff brush.
2. Apply several layers of Opal to the inside eye contour. For added intensity use a damp brush
3. Apply Mineral Eyeshadow in Bronzite to the outer corner of the eye working upwards and outwards and blending well.
4. Use a damp lip brush to apply a fine line of Bronzite beneath the lower lashes.
5. Apply a fine line of Powder Liner Pencil in Chocolate through the upper lashes and tapering out to a soft flick extending beyond the outer eye. Use the smudger to soften the line.
6. Take your Lush Mascara in Lush Black and apply a very light layer to upper and lower lashes using slow sweeping motions and fanning the lashes out.  Allow to dry and apply another light layer to the tips of the lashes. Comb the lashes to separate with a lash comb.

CHEEKS
Take your Mineral Finishing Powder in Sunsheen and swirl product onto a large fluff brush and shake away excess, gently press into the apples of the cheeks blending out towards the ear.  Apply the remaining product to the temples and below the jawline to define the contours.

LIPS
1. Using a Lip Brush apply an even layer of the Microbubble Lipstick Micro Teaberry to the lips and blot with a tissue.  Reapply and Blot again.
2. Apply a generous coating of Liptox in Princess to the centre of the lips.
