NAILING THE COCKTAIL LOOK WITH CORY WALIA AND SARAH JANE
Written by Girija NaiksatamSep 19, 2014
Most of the brides we know treat the cocktail as “just another party”. While that might be true, you’re still the bride and that means you’ve got to look your (blushing) best. To give you a head start, we got makeup ace Cory Walia, together with our favourite BB girl, Sarah Jane, to recreate the Cocktail Look from the Lakmé Absolute Bridal Makeup Masterclass.
After wearing her hair in an old-school middle parting with soft waves, Sarah prepped her skin with the Lakmé Absolute skin Gloss Serum to give her skin a good dose of hydration and a leave it with a glossy sheen – a must-do for all of our pretty brides-to-be.
A quick layer of foundation (even the best of us have patchy skin and an uneven tan) and a dab of concealer later, Cory got working on Sarah’s eyes. While you might not be able to experiment with dramatic eyes for your main functions, use the cocktail as an excuse to play around with your makeup as much as you can.
One too many first-hand accounts have told us that no cocktail night ends before 3am; and no cocktail night is a success unless supported by waterproof makeup! Enter: Lakmé Absolute Gel Addict Liner in black that should be your go-to for a professional, glossy look. While you can use it on both your lids, Cory used it on Sarah’s lower waterline to give her eyes more definition.
If there’s one thing that can change the way your face looks, and not even the prettiest bride could dispute it, it’s got to be mascara. Cory first curled Sarah’s lashes and then added volume and length using the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara.
In keeping with her monochrome look and to complement her jacket for the evening, Sarah wore glossy pink lips. She’s wearing Pink Pout from the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Stylist range.
