‘Get the Look’ Wedding Make-Up by Helen Kalli

Looking picture perfect on your wedding day is a must for all brides! Working with a professionally trained make-up artist is an excellent way of staying picture perfect but many brides prefer to do their own make-up themselves!

We spoke with Helen Kalli of  The Bridal Make-Up Artist about what  to use to create a picture perfect bridal look.

Her top make-up products for creating a perfect bridal look are: 

Nars Multi-Protect Primer £24 Primer is a very important first step as it evens and smooths out the skin preparing it for foundation. It also helps make up in giving it staying power.
Face Atelier Ultra Foundation is fab, it gives a good buildable coverage without any tell-tale signs or looking heaving. I apply this foundation with a brush.
I use two separate concealers one for under eyes, and one for the face. Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage £26 is an oil-free concealer that is great for covering up redness, blemishes, pigmentation (anything on the face that needs to be hidden) apply with a small nylon brush use a tiny amount as a little goes a long long way!)  Secret Concealer £18.50 goes under the eyes, this is a rich emollient concealer that doesn’t cake or look heavy.
Becca Opal £30
All Laura Mercier;
Wheat eye base all over lid and under brow to secure eye make-up all day!
Peach Shimmer bloc £30 on the lid (can be used to highlight cheeks)
Brown Copper pencil lash-line and outer corners to smoke the eyes up!
Laura Mercier Brow duo in soft blonde £20.50
By Terry Gel blush in Fresh Rose £40


Laura Mercier £18.50 Rose Glace
