With wedding season just setting in, we’ve already got brides writing in to us about the different looks they can wear for their wedding day. We got our favourite makeup maven Cory Walia together with his muse Sarah Jane to show all you lovely brides-to-be how you can wear the bridal montone look. Here’s a quick tutorial…

Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Overnight Mask for the previous night
To prep Sarah’s skin, Cory advised her to use Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Overnight Mask with mineral laden glacial water that would repair and hydrate her tired skin to ensure she woke up looking fresh for the shoot.

Post moisturisation, Sarah gave her skin a heavy dose of hydration with the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Skin Serum that’s so lightweight and smooth, it just glides over your skin effortlessly to bring out its natural sheen – a must-do for every bride.

Coverage
Despite all the assistance we can get from the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Range, Sarah’s long hours and late nights meant that we were dealing with dark circles and patchy skin. The solution? Super coverage with concealer (applied in the shape of a triangle as opposed to a curve) and tan coloured foundation, the closest to Sarah’s natural skin tone.

The montone look meant that Cory would do shades matching Sarah’s lehenga to her face as well. He started by highlighting her brow bone with the Lakmé Absolute Drama Stylist Shadow Crayon in white…

Let the blush double up as a shadow
… And then, like a true expert, made the Coral Blush from the Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos work double time by using it on her lids instead of just her cheeks. We hope you’re taking notes, girls!

Be generous with your blush
To add some colour to her face, Cory used the same blush on the apples of Sarah’s cheeks, that complemented her lehenga splendidly. Like we’ve said before, remember to always be generous with the blush since that’s the first thing that will wear off over the course of the evening.

He lined her lids with the new Lakmé Absolute Gloss Gel Addict Liners in black and extended it outwards to add some drama.

Define your eyes to create drama
Once her shadow had set, Cory turned his focus back to Sarah’s eyes.
Sticking to the basics, he lined her lower waterline with the Lakmé Kohl Ultimate and used the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara for her lashes.
