Get the look: Twilight inspired bridal beauty

25 Apr 2016

Vamp it up on your wedding day with statement bridal make-up that smoulders.

The vamp look is often synonymous with Halloween, but the movie culture of the past two decades has shown us that the vampire look can be sultry and glamorous, as opposed to gothic and dark.

Make-up artist Kelli Waldock has created the perfect make-up look for any bride inspired by Twilight’s Kristen Stewart. A complementing tousled hairstyle was crafted by Amy Huttley of the V-Team to cement this striking bridal look.

Get the make-up look:

It is vital that there is a balance when applying these stronger colours, so that you avoid overdoing the look and going too gothic. This look is inspired by the sultry female vampires from cult movies and TV series, but not a copy, as this is bridal make-up not costume or fancy dress make-up... so build up the colour carefully and practise before the big day.

1. Ensure sure skin is hydrated, and apply a light moisturiser if the skin is very dry.

2. Apply a primer to the skin and neck.

3. Apply a good-quality foundation. I used Airbase in a pale shade, because it gives a flawless complexion and is the perfect foundation for other make-up to sit on... it also lasts all day.

4. Accentuate the eyebrows using a brow pencil, in a shade slightly darker than the natural colour, but not too dark. Avoid blocking in the eyebrows, instead create a natural and light feathered effect over brows to add colour.

5. Apply a primer on the eyes to give a great base for the eye-shadow and to conceal blemishes on the eye lid.

6. Apply a neutral eye-shadow as a great base for the stronger colour, so that the shades are built up for a smoky effect.

7. Apply a darker tone, I used brown, to the outer corner of the lid. This accentuates the eyes. Smudge the brown underneath the lower lashes for a more sultry look.

8. Apply mascara, separating lashes and adding colour, bring out the natural sparkle of the eyes.

9. Add a hint of colour to the cheekbones.

10. Apply a lip balm if the the lips are dry, and then apply a dark lip liner of your choice; cherry red or a deep purple looks great.

11. After you have applied the liner, fill the full lips in with more colour.

12. And lastly add a dark coloured lipstick with a brush, this will give more staying power.

Get the hair look:

It is important to keep the hairstyle softer to balance the strong make-up. A relaxed tousled style is sexy and looks effortlessly pretty, which also helps to soften the stronger make-up look.

1. Run hair mousse through dry hair.

2. Starting from the nape of the neck, take small sections of the hair and curl using my heated wand.

3. Using grips/pins pinch the curls, and leave them to set for a few minutes.

4. Lightly spray with hairspray for extra hold to curls.

5. Remove all clips.

6. Using dry shampoo (I used Batiste), gently backcomb the roots through to the crown of the head.

7. Use fingertips to loosen out the curls, creating that desired tousled look. Dress with bridal head wear.

8. Apply a final spray of hairspray, and the look is complete.
