MODERN MINIMAL BRIDAL BEAUTY BY
MAKE-UP ARTIST AND BRIDAL BEAUTY EXPERT, LEISA WELCH

Radiant, luminous skin, defined brows and the perfect moist nude lip are key to achieving a polished ‘no makeup’ nude face. 
Bridal makeup expert Leisa Welch created a beautiful modern minimalist look for this exclusive #SauceShoot. 

 

01. 

I prepped the skin with Tailor hydrating mist before applying tailor moisturiser and gently massaging in.

02. 

Hourglass no.28 primer serum created a beautiful base and prepared the skin for the next step.

03. 

I applied Nars sheer glow foundation to the centre of the face and gently blended outwards using a combination of a kabuki brush and fingers for a seamless light finish.

04. 

For the next step I used Bobbi Brown concealer duo with a small flat brush over the darkest/purple under eye region. I tapped the area gently with my ring finger until it blended into the foundation and erased the discolouration.  Using a thin pointed brush I spot covered any other blemishes on the skin.

05. 

I dabbed a Becca beach tint shimmer soufflé with my fingers to the apple of the cheeks to add a natural, subtle flush. A Smashbox highlighter pen applied over the check bones nose and cupids bow added extra luminosity to the skin.

06. 

Using a small, soft brush I added Becca shimmering skin perfector poudre around the eye to brighten the eyes before adding a single coat of black mascara to add definition rather than obvious volume/length.   

07. 

Using Nars brow perfector I filled the brows using light, feathery strokes that followed the natural hair, brushing through to blend before setting with Tweezerman brow mousse to hold in place.

08. 

I prepped the lips by buffing in a small amount of Pawpaw cream before using one of the hourglass nude lip stylo crayon’s for a nude, barely there finish.

 

For what’s possibly the most photographed day of your life, you’ll want to look and feel confident and more importantly for your make up to last through every photo, from the kisses, the hugs and the congratulations.
