Breaking Dawn makeup artist Stacey Panepinto shows us how to get Bella's wedding-day glow. "We focused on her eyes and kept the rest of her makeup soft and natural to compliment her hair and dress," she says.
Step 1: Apply a makeup primer, such as Sensai Brightening Make-Up Base, on the face to hold the makeup for long hours.
Step 2: Lightly cover the skin with a foundation, like La Prairie Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation SPF 15 in Peche, combined with a brightening power like Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder under the eyes.
Step 3: Prep the eyelids with an eye shadow primer to keep it from creasing later in the day.
Step 4: Sweep a light, shimmery shadow over the eyelids to the brow bone. Panepinto used Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in Winter Nights (1) on Bella. Then apply a dark eyeliner, like Lancome Le Crayon Khol Waterproof in Black (2), to the top lid. Blend in the darker shadow at the lash line, working your way up until the liner disappears. Stop deep color at crease. For the bottom of the eye use the pencil or shadows to draw the line and then smudge it. Finish with a couple of coats of black mascara, such as Dior Diorshow Waterproof in Black (3), to both sets of lashes.
Step 5: Brush a sheer pink blush on the apples of your cheeks for a hint of color. Bella wore Stila Custom Color Blush in Pink (4).
Step 6: Use a pink-toned lip gloss, such as Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 (5), to accentuate the lips natural shade and moisturize.
Step 7: To complete the look, set the makeup with a light powder, like Make Up For Ever HD Powder.
