The most special day of your life calls for a beauty look that’s equally special. We asked Pro Artist Kareen Nanwani to create a beautifully soft, natural wedding makeup look that will stand the test of time.
As the big day nears, beauty sleep can fall by the wayside. Thankfully, even if never-ending “wedmin” has been keeping you up at night, iconic Advanced Night Repair Serum – otherwise known as “Estée Lauder’s beauty sleep in a bottle” – can help skin look and feel its best. It infuses skin with 72 hours of hydration, leaving it looking glowing by morning.
Kareen follows with Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Gel-Creme. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, this innovative eye treatment brightens the look of dark circles fast to give you a refreshed, well-rested look (even when you’re not).
Kareen’s top tip? Keep this power pair in the fridge for a cooling feel that will help invigorate and awaken tired skin and eyes. Her final glow-enhancing step is massaging our vitamin C-enriched DayWear moisturiser into the skin, taking extra time on tense areas like the jawline and temples.
With skin fully prepped, it’s onto makeup. For beautifully radiant primed skin, Kareen recommends using our Double Wear Hydrating Primer for immediate radiance. Then layer with your perfect shade of Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10. This award-winning matte foundation lasts for up to 24 hours, taking you from aisle to dancefloor with no touch-ups needed. She then applies a touch of Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer under the eyes to banish the look of any dark circles, before finishing her base with a dusting of blush and bronzer to delicately define the cheekbones.
Next, Kareen moves onto eye makeup, making sure to enhance her natural eye shape for a soft, romantic look. She applies a neutral colour to the lids, then adds a pop of glitter in the centre using Pure Color Envy Luxe EyeShadow Quad in shade Desert Dunes. She then lengthens her lashes with two coats of Double Wear Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara – a formula she can rely on not to flake or smudge during those special moments.
With all of the extra talking, drinking and eating, lips can soon become dry, so opt for a hydrating formula like Pure Color Matte Lipstick. Kareen favours Suit Up, a cool pinky-nude that perfectly plays up her natural features.
She frames the face by turning to brows. For the most natural arches, Kareen uses Micro Precision Brow Pencil in shade Dark Brunette. The ultra-fine tip and formula gives maximum control, resulting in flattering hair-like strokes.
The finishing touch? Set + Refresh Perfecting Makeup Mist. Kareen lightly mists it over her face to set makeup and instantly revive the skin.
