Extra special occasions call for extra special makeup looks. With wedding season in full swing, this is the look to try.

We’re taking you through every step to recreate this bold, shimmery eye and glowy complexion. Hit play!

The key to a long lasting base

1. Skin prep is essential for a look that will last all night long. Apply the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Smoothing Serum as your first step for a boost of hydration.

2. Next, go in with your favourite foundation and concealer. The long-wearing nature of the Ellis Faas Skin Veil Foundation and NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer makes them our top choice for all-day wear.

For easy but bold eyes

3. Make your eyes sparkle with the Violette_FR Yeux Paint Twinking in the shade Marron Glace. Decant the product onto the back of your hand, before applying with a small flat brush.

4. Follow the natural crease of the eye when applying, being careful not to bring it too far into your inner corner. Use a cotton bud to clean up any mistakes.

5. To bring the look together, use the leftover product on your brush and sweep across your lower lash line.

6. Complete the eyes with a volumising mascara like the NARS Climax Mascara.

7. Fill in your brows with your pencil of choice (we love the Kosas Brow Pop Dual-Action Defining Pencil), then set them in place with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze Gel

Sculpt your cheeks

8. Swipe the Kevin Aucoin Contrast Stick under your cheekbones, on your forehead and along your jawline to sculpt. Blend with a tapered brush in an upwards motion.

9. To make sure your eyes are the only thing shining, set your face with a translucent powder. Our pick is the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder.

The finishing touch: pump up the colour

10. Next, use your fingers to melt the NARS Afterglow Blush in the shade ‘Behave‘ into your cheeks.

11. Finally, bring it all together with lips. A long-wearing formula, like the NARS Powermatte Lipstick in ‘Free Bird’, will look stunning in photos and won’t require many touch-ups.
