We can't stop obsessing over real bride Jojo's make-up look from issue 106. It's giving us Princess of Wales vibes! How did you achieve this look and would it suit anyone?
Laetitia says: Jojo wanted a natural make-up with good definition to accentuate her large green eyes, flawless skin and a nude lip. I started with her eyes and used a pale, shimmering gold swept across her eyelids and a little in the inner corner to brighten. I'll often look at the flecks of colour within the iris and take into account what jewellery is being worn. Jojo was accessorising with gold.
Next, I added a soft, pink brown in the socket line so that when her eyes were open a warm wash of colour was visible. I then added a deep brown in the outer corners and a little below for definition. Jojo had opted for semi-permanent eyelash extensions, which she'd had applied a few days before, so I added a black gel eyeliner with a subtle wing, which brought the definition and emphasised her beautiful eyes. Waterproof mascara was applied to her bottom lashes, along with a little eyebrow pencil and clear gel to keep her eyebrows in place. Eyelash extensions always lend a little glamour to your bridal look and can be a more practical option than false lashes, especially if you get emotional!
Onto the complexion, and after moisturising, I primed her skin with Deliah Cosmetics Underwear, then applied Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter beneath her foundation to give her that lit from within glow. This is how you achieve that flawless finish. A little concealer under the eyes was all that was needed with a brightening powder and a fine dusting of translucent powder all over to set the base. I then swirled a luminous pressed powder from her temples onto the tops of her cheekbones to highlight and dial up the glow.
Bronzer was used to contour and warm up the skin and a pop of coral blush gave Jojo a healthy glow. One of my favourite lipsticks, Charlotte Tilbury in Dancefloor Princess, and lip liner completed the look with a final spritz of Urban Decay Up All Nighter fixing spray.
