How to get Kate Moss’ wedding day glow
I admit I was rather surprised, positively, with Kate Moss’ wedding makeup look. Departing from her trademark, rock star-inspired smoky kohl-rimmed eyes and red lipstick, the supermodel opted instead for a minimal, barely-there makeup look for her wedding to Jamie Hince back in 2011. Trust the divine Ms. Kate to make even the most natural look uber dramatic!
Playing it neutral
The overall effect was less rock star and more free spirit. Kate said ‘eye do’ to a simple shimmery eye shadow and rosy-nude lips, framed beautifully by a light, natural looking wavy hairstyle. It was a very chic look – and quite the opposite route from bold, dramatic wedding makeup and upswept ‘do that is de rigueur for many brides.
Celebrated makeup artist (and Kate’s good friend) Charlotte Tilbury created this fresh daytime look that you can emulate, especially if you’re having a day wedding. Plus it’s also a nice alternative to showing up at the altar with an unrecognizable version of yourself under heavy makeup!
To mimic Kate’s natural look, stick to a light foundation that will last long during the daytime. For eyes, choose a creamy shadow in a brown shade and apply until the brow bone and buff well to blend. Sweep a light shimmery eye shadow at the eyelid. Apply dark brown or black mascara just on the top lashes to keep it light and natural.
For lips, choose a lipstick in neutral shades like pinkish nude. No need for lip liner. For this natural look, blush is the star. This is a must to avoid looking washed out and pale. Sweep a rosy pink blush on the apples of your cheeks to achieve a natural, glowing look.
Now if only having the same John Galliano couture dress was just as simple!
