Every bride wants to look like the best version of themselves on their big day, but achieving that perfect look (not too much and not too little) is easier said than done.
“I think as a general tip, I would keep to a similar foundation to what you're normally used to, so you feel comfortable throughout the day," says Ariane Jaksch, national education & sales and events manager for BECCA. "If you're not used to wearing foundation, aim for something that offers coverage but is still light."
When it comes to colour, while you may not want to experiment too much on your big day, taking influence from the season you're marrying in is a great way to add colour that feels natural.
To give you inspiration, we sat down with Ariane who created four distinctive wedding day looks to suit each season.
“This look is perfect for brides who want to glow on their big day but also not wear a lot of eye makeup. So the key is to use the Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid on your face before foundation. You can wear it all over your body, too."
Lauren wears: Becca Skin Love Weightless Blur Foundation and Under Eye Brightening Corrector (worn throughout), Beach Tint in Watermelon, Ombré Nudes Eye Palette using shades 1 and 2, Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid in Opal.
“For summer, it's all about bronzed goddess skin so I've used golden hues on the eyes, golden skin and a touch of bright orange blush to add more warmth. The key to this look is the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Topaz, which I’ve used on the eyes and a little bit on the cheek bones.”
Lauren wears: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Topaz, Sunlit Bronzer in Capri, Glow Gloss in Rose Quartz and Beach Tint in Papaya.
“This look is all about warm autumnal colours, which I’ve created by using the Volcano goddess palette on the eye. I used a few shades but the main colour to focus on is Red Rock, which I applied wet to create that really beautiful red tone eye.”
Lauren wears: Becca Volcano Goddess Eye Palette using Granite, Red Rock and Gilded, Beach Tint in Fig on cheeks and lips.
“For winter, I went a bit colder in colours with a focus on ashy tones, using the Volcano Goddess Eye Palette, and then Beach Tint in Fig on cheeks for that perfect, wintery look.”
