Less is more for blushing bride Heart Evangelista.
Now that part one of the wedding special had been shown on TV, more people were awed by her bridal look.
For her wedding in Balesin Island Club, she got the au naturel look with her #MLBB (my lips but better) lipstick shade and “no foundation” make-up.
All thanks to her make-up artist and close friend Albert Kurniawan who wanted Heart to get that fresh and flawless look for her big day.
“Yung sa Balesin, gusto niya mas solemn, mas bride yung dating.
“What I did is walang foundation siya.
“Gusto ko plain pa rin with a little bit something unique,” said Albert in an interview with PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and YES! Magazine.
Albert revealed that maintaining a healthy skin is crucial because no amount of makeup can conceal a bride’s stress on her wedding day.
“Kasi parang two weeks before the wedding I always text her, ‘O yung skin mo.’
“Kasi I’m very OC [obsessive-compulsive] in terms of skin.
“Sabi ko sa kanya, ‘pag pangit ang skin I cannot do it with tinted moisturizer lang. And she really took care of her skin,” he added.
To complete Heart’s bridal look, she had perfectly-groomed brows, full lashes, and contoured eye make-up.
With more soon-to-be-brides getting hitched this year, PEP listed down the make-up products that Albert used for Heart's oh-so-natural bridal glow:
TINTED MOISTURIZER. Instead of the usual liquid foundation, Albert applied NARS’ tinted liquid moisturizer on Heart to achieve a translucent-looking finish.
It didn’t only bring out Heart’s flawless skin, but also kept it hydrated and protected from minimal sun exposure.
You may also try MAC Studio Moisture Tint for that smooth and soft finish.
BIGGER EYES, FULL LASHES. Albert used a nude eye make-up to contour Heart’s pretty peepers and give it a more dimensional, rounded, and larger shape.
Of course, a touch of mascara and falsies (as in extended lashes) will instantly brighten up the eyes.
PERFECTLY-GROOMED BROWS. Getting that full arch is made easier these days by using a brow powder which is two shades lighter than your hair color.
Apply it first on your outer brows with a light hand, and gradually build up your preferred hue.
Then use an evenly-tipped brush to smooth out the powder and fill in your inner brows.
You may use MAC’s two-toned brow shader or In2 It's brown eyeshadow for easy application.
YOUR LIPS BUT BETTER. Wearing the right lipstick on your wedding day is a must because you neither want to look pale nor over the top.
Albert revealed that he used two different shades to achieve Heart’s perfect pucker: Nars’ Sex Machine (velvet matte lip pencil) for that long-staying effect and Gucci Exposure to keep her lips a little bit glossy and moisturized.
To achieve that beautiful rose-pink shade, you may try Nyx’s Tea Rose and Revlon Colorburst’s Elusive Insaisissable matte balm.
