How To Create a Summer Wedding Makeup Look

  1. Thick and luscious pearly-white moisturiser in an open glass jar with its gold-coloured lid placed behind it.

    Step 1: Wedding Day Skincare

    On the morning of the wedding, you should apply a supercharged skincare routine to prep the skin for makeup.

    Step 1: Apply Goddess Skin Clay Mask to enrich your skin with Spanish clay and almond oil to help brighten the look of your complexion and refine the appearance of pores. Leave on for 15 minutes and wash off with a warm flannel.

    Step 2: Wear Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask, lining up with your eyes and mouth then gently massaging any areas that need extra hydration. Leave on for 15 minutes then remove to reveal glowing, dewy skin.

    Step 3: Hydrate under the eyes by applying Magic Eye Rescue eye cream to the eye area, tapping in lightly with your ring finger for a smoothing, depuffing effect.

    Step 4: Prep your skin for your base makeup by applying Charlotte’s Magic Cream moisturiser all over your face, massaging in to help moisturise your complexion.

    Get a Hollywood Glow

    To create a glowing, Hollywood complexion, apply Hollywood Flawless Filter all over the face, blending in outward motions with the Hollywood Complexion Brush. This radiance-boosting formula creates the perfect wedding day glow, giving the skin light, luminous coverage that works like a social media filter.

  5. Bigger, Brighter Eyes Palette in Exagger-Eyes, an eye-enhancing, rose-gold eye colour quad

    Create an Eye-Enhancing Eyeshadow Look

    Charlotte designed her Bigger, Brighter Eyes Palette in Exagger-Eyes as the ultimate beauty secret for eyes that look wider and brighter.

    Create the perfect wedding day eyeshadow look using this eye-enhancing palette in 4 simple steps.

    Step 1: Sweep the Prime shade all over your eyelid using the Blender Brush, using a Smudger Brush to apply to the inner corners and below your eyebrow arch to highlight and define.

    Step 2: Apply the Enlarge shade using your Blender Brush. You can wash it across the eye lightly or build up in the crease for a lightly contoured effect.

    Step 3: Add instant definition by applying the Define shade along your lash line to create the illusion of brighter eyes.

    Step 4: A wash of the transparent sparkle shade in the Exagger-Eyes palette will create wider and brighter-looking eyes by applying with your ring finger to the centre of your eyelid.

    As for finishing touches, create a soft feline flick with the Rock ‘n’ Kohl eyeliner in Barbarella Brown for gorgeous definition to your eye makeup. Then blend with the Smudger Brush for an even softer line, then apply Legendary Lashes Volume 2 mascara for a wide-eyed fluttering lash look.

  6. Charlotte's Filmstar Bronze and Glow is the key to getting a sculpted-looking, red carpet-ready look

    Bronze & Glow

    To add glow to your makeup, apply the highlighter shade on the tops of your cheekbones for a complexion that looks lit-from-within.
