Bridal beauty with Bobbi Brown

by Saisha Potts on

As summer peeks its way through the cloud it can only mean more weddings – after all who wouldn’t want to get married when it’s warm, sunny and the sky is blue?

Paired with the joy of wedding bells is the growing stress us ladies feel… what to wear, how to do our hair and will our mascara run if we cry (the panda look is never good)? 

Whether you’re the blushing bride or a glowing guest, we all want to look our best for the big day. 

Our favourite makeup artist Bobbi Brown always gets it right for us. 

Inspired by natural beauty such as “a strong brow, bedroom eyes and a bump on the nose”, we’re re-assured that Bobbi’s collection of creations can leave us looking uniquely beautiful for the big day. 

Pot Rouge 

A best-selling product in the Bobbi collection, this pot rouge is a multi-tasking girl’s best friend – after all if you can do two things at once, why shouldn’t your makeup? 

Packaged in a cute compact with a mirror on the flip for on-the-day touch ups, pot rouge is the perfect consistency for adding a dash of colour to both lips and cheeks.  

For a natural look blend the colour with your fingers onto the apples of your cheeks. If you have dry skin our top tip is to make sure you moisturise before application – no one wants dry and flaky skin. 

Pot rouge is also well acclaimed with a long list of awards to its name, from InStyle Beauty Hall of Fame Winner to Best Buys 2012 – we think that’s a pretty good recommendation! 

Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner

Smudged eye makeup is an absolute no-no on the big day, but at such a tear jerking event it’s a risk you’ll encounter. 

Go panda free with this Long-Wear Gel Liner, not only will it last the whole day long, once applied it won’t budge without the help of makeup remover – perfect! 

The gel consistency means it glides on to the eyes effortlessly creating a slick line that perfectly frames your beautiful peepers. 

For a truly natural look use Espresso Ink (a dark brown) and apply a thin line close to the lash line, making sure you wipe off any excess gel from the brush before application. 

No Smudge Mascara 

Curl and define your eyes without any trace of smearing or clumping with Bobbi Brown No Smudge Mascara. 

Perfect at creating a look that oozes natural beauty the specially designed brush separates, defines and lengthens lashes. 

No Smudge Mascara is also Ophthalmologist tested meaning it’s suitable for contact lens wearers. 

Lip Colour 

With a range of 31 colours to choose from, there really is a shade to suit every personality, from dusky pink to black raspberry. The lipstick is creamy in consistency and great at moisturising the lips whilst adding colour. 

We’re a sucker for packaging and these lipsticks tick all our boxes with black casing and elegant chrome detailing – we’re sold on that alone!

To get a truly flawless look we suggest you apply the colour with a lip brush, following the natural line of the lip, starting with the upper lip before moving to the lower lip. If you want your lip colour to last for longer without the need for touch ups apply lip liner – for a natural look choose a shade as close to the lip colour as possible. 

Spoilt for choice? If you’re stuck on what shade to choose, let  Bobbi’s lip shade guide give you a helping hand.
