A busy bride needs instant pick-me-ups during her wedding, and nothing is a quicker fix than a highlighter like the Maybelline New York Facestudio Master Strobing Stick - one speedy swipe can revive even the most ritual-exhausted face. Strategic placement is the key to creating a healthy, lit-from-within glow. Make-up artist Santwana’s golden rule, “Stick to the high points of your face – and stay away from the sides of your nose, chin and forehead to avoid looking overly shiny in those wedding photos.”
“For this shoot, I used the NYX Professional Makeup Hot Singles Eye Shadow which has the delicate effect and dynamic shimmer of pearls, and added a green-gold finish to give the colour an unexpected edge,” says Santwana. When working with a shadow this lush she relies on a make-up primer. “I love the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation primer. It’s key to getting the shimmer to stay in place. She pats it on, starting with the eye area first, before even applying foundation, and blends the shimmer from the lid to crease. “Use a flat shadow brush to press the hue onto your skin,” she adds. Her go-to technique is a windshield wiper motion that prevents fallout. “A fine-tipped liner brush will help you carry the tone along your lower lash line,” she explains.
