Bridal Beauty: Monique Lhuillier Spring 2015


THE SHOW:Monique Lhuillier Bridal

THE HAIR: Nina Dimachkiopted for a classic chignon that would last through the first dance to the last toast, starting with a quarter-sized amount of Kérastase's Ciment Thérminique to clean, dry strands from roots to ends. She then layered Spray-À-Porter throughout before blow drying with a bristle finishing brush to pull it back. With a light veil of Powder Bluff to mattify, Dimachki pulled the hair into the ponytail at the nape of the neck before blasting the length with more dry shampoo. She twisted the ponytail into the chignon, pinning it in place and tucking in the ends. She finished with a blast of Laque Dentelle and bejeweled headpiece for many of the brides.

THE MAKEUP: MAC's team kept the dreamy theme going by evening the tone first before adding a highlight around the cheekbone with the brand's Cream Color Base in Pearl layered with Vanilla Pigment on top to create an inner glow. A slight flush on the cheek from the Cremeblend Blush in Something Special sat ubnder the highlight with a touch of taupe blush underneath to contour. The eyes were touched up with the upcoming color base in Au Naturel to neutralize any redness and create a slightly smoky eye with curled lashes and a few swipes of Extended Play Mascara. The lips were perfectly shaped with a touch of concealer before they received a natural flush courtesy of the Crosswires lipstick pressed onto the lip.

THE MANI: Katie Hughes created a full party manicure by layering Butter London's Nail 999 Base Coat topped with the brand's nail lacquer in Doily, part of its new Sweet Somethings collection, to mimic the look of confetti on their tips and toes.
