Bridal beauty expert Sarah Brock shares her step-by-step guide to recreate our cover girl's radiant look:


1. Before applying any makeup, I wanted to ensure the model's décolleté was moisturised. This is important if you are wearing a strapless dress, as she was in this cover. Apply Chanel Firming and Rejuvenating Body Cream to chest and arms to leave skin looking plump and toned, without being too greasy.

2. Ensure skin is moisturised, using Hydra Beauty Micro Serum and Hydra Beauty Creme Moisturiser. Don't forget about lips too: apply Hydra Beauty Nutrition Nourishing Lip Care to ensure they are plump and soft.

3. Primers are important to make sure make-up lasts longer, and also for that extra radiance. Using your fingers, apply a thin, even layer of Le Blanc de Chanel.

4. Next up: foundation. To create a glowing, even and smooth complexion I use Vitalumiere Satin Smoothing Fluid Makeup in shade 10. Start by applying to the centre of the face and blend outwards.


5. Cover any under eye shadows (or blemishes if required) using Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer in shade 10 using a concealer brush and pat gently with fingers after to soften and blend.

6. Set the foundation using Les Beiges Healthy Glow Powder in shade 10, dusting the powder down the T-zone, on the eyelids (to stop eyeshadow from creasing) and then a tiny amount over the rest of the face.

7. Delicately contour the face using Les Beiges Healthy Glow Powder in shade 30 just under the cheekbones and also around the hairline, for definition.  

8. For pretty and soft cheeks, using a blusher brush, apply a small amount of the Creation Exclusive Jardin de Chanel blush to the apple of the cheeks and blended upwards and outwards to the hairline.

9. Gently define brows using an angled brow brush and Le Sourcil de Chanel Perfect Brows Palette. Using powder gives a softer, more natural appearance.


10. For the eyes, take Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Palette in shade Tisse Fantasisie, using the rosy coral shade across the eyelids. Next, take the intense brown/copper colour and using the thinnest eyeliner brush, apply a tiny amount to the outer half of the lower lashline and almost blend away with a cotton bud (so the line isn't obvious, it should just give a slight definition to the eye). The final eyeshadow to apply is the pretty white shadow, under the brow bone and to the inner corner of the eye to add lift and light.

11. Ecriture de Chanel is perfectly shaped to draw the perfect line across your top lid. Just press it along the upper lashline from inner to outer corner, starting off thinner at the inner corner and gradually increase the thickness of the line as you move towards the outer corner.

12. Curl lashes and apply a few coats of Le Volume de Chanel Waterproof Mascara.

13. To balance the strong eyes, I decided to use a soft, raspberry tone on the lips. Start off with Le Crayon Levres Precision Lip Definer in shade Pretty Pink all over followed by Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in shade Etourdie for extra gloss.
