Get the look: make-up, by Jules Cardozo-Marsh

Luminous skin, soft cheeks and a 60's inspired eye keeps this bridal look modern and fresh. To keep everything fresh and simple with all focus being on the eyes, I opted for a lightweight foundation using Cosmetics à La Carte to create a radiant, luminous base and applied using a brush to work gently into the face.

Conceal where needed and pay particular attention to any dark circles under the eyes, apply by gently patting with the pads of your finger as the warmth will disperse it into your skin. No dragging in the eye area...

Apply a light dusting of loose powder to the T-Zone to combat any shine as this helps 'set' the make-up.

Using a black liquid eyeliner and from the inner corner draw a line close to the lash line and extend slightly up at the outer corner to create the notorious 60's flick. If you find it hard to draw a straight line try resting your elbow on a flat surface. If you make a mistake just use a Q-Tip soaked in eye make-up remover and start again.

To finish, apply lashing of black mascara and for extra drama add a few flairs to the outer corner of your lashes, applying just 2 or 3 clusters will really make a difference and life the eye.

Start by sectioning a three strand plait from one side of the head taking it to the back of the head, before securing with anon pull same colour "bungee" elastic.

Repeat on the other side, so that both plaits meet in the middle of the back of the head, before braiding them end to end together and folding joined upwards like an envelope. Secure with bobby pins.

To loosen the plait tease the hair by gently pulling it out  with the tail of a fine tail comb, to give it that soft slightly messy feel. Let the hair fall gently over the eye and secure.

For that finishing touch add a diamanté hair clip. I love the choices at Alexandre de Paris, particularly their vintage pieces!
