Romantic, effortless and glowing – it’s a look that every modern bride-to-be desires for their big day (or every day for that matter).
“On your wedding day I firmly believe you want to get compliments on how beautiful you look, not how beautiful your makeup looks,” says Ariane Jaksch, national education & sales and events manager for BECCA.
Going by the mantra ‘highlighting is a trend, but glow is forever,’ BECCA is an industry leader in creating the ultimate glow, no matter what your skin tone. With Ariane and the team attending Brides The Show to show you how to create the ultimate bridal glow, we Ariane for a special preview of the look as well as her best expert tips.
Skin: Skin Love Glow Elixir, Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid, Skin Love Weightless Blur Foundation, Under Eye Brightening Corrector, Under Eye Brightening Setting Powder, Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder

Colour: Ombre Rouge Eye Palette on eyes, Beach Tint in grapefruit on cheeks
Ariane’s tip: Our Shimmering Skin Perfector in liquid will give you a nice and natural glow. On the glow scale of one to ten, I’d say it’s a glow level number six. What I do is dab it gently onto the high points of your face, so along your cheek bone in a C shape. It’s also a lovely product to mix with your foundation if you want an instant glow. Too apply, you can use a brush or you can use a finger. I like using my finger because it really marries the products together and melts them into the skin.

Ariane’s tip: When applying the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed, you can wet your brush a little bit and apply the powder wet which creates a really beautiful opaque finish.

Glow: Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid, Skin Love Glow Glaze Stick
Colour: Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in rose gold on eyes, Beach Tint in raspberry on cheeks and lips
Ariane’s tip: You can use Beach Tint on the lips and cheeks, and it gives you a really beautiful stain. Once the oil dries out, you’re left with the most beautiful flush of colour. A quick way of applying it, is by putting it on the heel of your hands, smiling and then generously pop it onto the apple of your cheeks. For a nice, natural flush you want to actually blush quite a large area. So it’s a very romantic look.
