Krystal Dawn reveals her secrets to getting Billie Faiers wedding make-up look using Iconic London #BillieFaiers #IconicLondon
Talk us through the product breakdown and step-by-step for Billie’s wedding make-up?
(Her skin was prepped with lots of face and eye masks)
I start by applying an eyeshadow base to the eye to neutralise and allow for the shadows to be long wearing (this stops them moving or creasing) I used Mac laying low. I apply a little concealer under the brow and that’s my base created. I then applied Bellini into the socket and blended outwards. I then apply Fig eyeliner from nudestix on top and bottom liners flicked out but in a smokey way. I create this by applying merlot Monday’s on top and blending outwards. I apply champagne chic in inner corner or eye and also on brow bone to make the eyes really pop. I then apply under eye concealer and also sharpen out the winged shadow with it. The foundation goes on but meets with the concealer, it never goes on top. I then use mehron contour creams (foundation) to contour outer corner of eye, forehead and cheek bones. I then used the liquid highlighter and dotted this on the top of the cheek bones and blend. I set all of this with powder or highlighter and a matte bronzer. I applied a peachy blush onto the apples of the cheeks. I try to keep the brows as natural as possible and add soap through them for texture and then apply dip brow in the areas that need it by doing little brushstroke hairs. I finished by applying lip liner and lipstick. For the body I used the liquid highlight on the collar bone and then sprayed the prep set and go all over the top of the body. (The darker colour) it dries and doesn’t feel greasy.
Can you share any techniques or trends you used for Billie’s look?
The technique I always seem to do on Billie and is our go to look is the subtle winged out eye without harsh liner. I do this using contouring products.
Why is ICONIC the perfect brand to use for Billie’s bridal glow?
Iconic seemed perfect because of the highlighter options and the ease of a spray. It complimented the beach wedding perfectly
How can you best achieve this look at home?
To achieve this look at home try using a bronzer first to get some practice winging the eye out. Contour creams can be quite tricky so ease yourself in. To highlight the face, try the prep set and glow before you apply foundation so that it was that glow for summer without looking oily.
Billie’s highlighter has become part of her signature look – was this something the pair of you set out to achieve?
We definitely wanted to go for a highlighted look to compliment the beach wedding vibes. She wore the most stunning dress and the highlighter complimented this perfectly. She glowed all day and all night
How can you create the perfect glossed lip and how to choose the right shade?
I always apply lip liner and blend slightly inwards. Then I apply gloss. This makes the lip long lasting and also gives the gloss a base. Match your gloss to your liner or your look. My fave is pinky browns
Tell us more about Sam’s maid-of-honour make-up?
Sam’s Makeup was quite natural with a nudey pink glossy lip (used your gloss but can’t think of the name) she wanted to go for the effortless boho babe look – very fresh
