Think flawless radiant, luminous skin when creating a typical English Rose bridal look.

Use a primer to hold your make-up in place - one of my favourites is Laura Mercier as it's lovely and light.

Chose a sheer tinted foundation and apply only where you need coverage. Use concealer where needed and sweep a little loose powder to help combat any shine across the T-Zone if you have oily skin. Using blotting paper throughout the day us ideal to help keep shine at bay. MAC blotting paper is great.

Apply a light colour wash of pure pastels building up colour as you go and blending to soften the edges, I used English Rose limited edition colour pallet by Cosmetics à La Carte to create this look. You can add extra definition by applying eye liner but not to choose black as this can look a little harsh.

Brown mascara works really well with this look but make sure it's waterproof.

Apply a soft pink blusher to the cheeks and use a highlighter on the top of the cheek bone. Perfect!

Use a soft pink lipstick and apply to the lips to complete the look.

Blow dry hair prepared with a moisture-infusing product to really build in the shine from the start. Use a large barrel brush and dry from the root to end in sections, creating a little tension at the crown to build in lift.

Once dry, tong each section starting just below the eye, pining each section in on itself as you go. Use a little hairspray on each section to help set while it cools.

Once cool, take down each section and use a paddle brush to gently sweep the hair over to one side,before gently using fingers to rake out the curls without pulling.
