The 2016 collection is a light, dreamy collection, all the way down to the make-up.

 The fresh, natural look is just stunning for wedding day make-up and is an increasingly popular demand among professional make up artists, including Sarah Brock.

Sarah is the Cover makeup artist and beauty expert for Conde Nast Brides magazine, she is also the bridal makeup expert for Chanel.

We spoke to Sarah about how to re-create our dewy look at home.


When should you start preparing for the big day?

As soon as possible! Getting in to a good skin care regime is essential not only for the face, but also for the body.

 I would recommend:

• A cleanser – twice a day

• An at home micro-dermabraison scrub or exfoliator (depending on your skin type), once or twice a week

• Depending on our skin type, a good face mask which will hydrate the skin and make it look younger and fresher

• 2 different moisturisers – one with an SPF for day ad one that is designed for night time use

• Eye cream, to be used twice a day

• A good lip product to keep lips plump and moisturised

It is essential to take time in choosing the right foundation shade and formulation and it is worth getting professional advice on your foundation/ concealer and powder.

If it is too thick/ heavy/ too dark or light it will show in the photographs. If your makeup base looks great, the rest of your makeup will too!

What are the essentials every bridesmaid she keep on her?

Her matching lipstick/ lip gloss, a blotting powder to remove any shine, cotton buds for herself and for the bride if she needs them!!
