Naomie Harris at New York Fashion Week: Going in a completely different direction, Naomie Harris is the poster child for barely-there makeup. With only a coat of mascara on her eyes, a hint of warmth on her cheeks, and some pink lip gloss, the real show-stopper is her flawless complexion. Brides who want to mimic this understated beauty effect should incorporate exfoliating and brightening products into their skincare routine in the weeks leading up to the wedding, and on the big day, look to a BB Cream and highlighter to get that radiant, flawless look.
Olivia Wilde at the New York screening of Race: For a modern makeup look, befitting a bride who fancies a pantsuit more than a ball gown, look no further than Olivia Wilde. Rose gold eyeshadow leads the way on both the upper lid and under the lower lash line for a romantic smokey look. Make sure the shadow you choose has a slight shimmer to it, and use some individual false lashes on the outer corners of the eyes for added drama. Coral blush on the apples of the cheeks and a bold wash of matte red lipstick— plus well defined eyebrows— complete a look that proves that going minimal isn't the only way to be on-trend this season.
Saoirse Ronan at EE British Academy Film Awards: Who said a cat-eye had to be vampy? Make the retro technique ultra romantic like Saoirse Ronan by pairing it with a strobed complexion and glossy light pink lips. The key to recreating this look is to keep the liquid liner thin at the inner corners, and make the flick at the outer corners ever so slight. Keep the brows natural— just fill in any sparse places and keep them in place with a wax— and don't skimp on the highlighting powder, so your entire face glows.
