How to: Chiara Ferragni's picture-perfect wedding glow
The blushing bride
You've seen Italian influencer's Chiara Ferragni OTT wedding to rapper Leonardo "Fedez" Lucia last weekend at Dimora delle Balze in Noto here, and perhaps all the jaw-dropping videos shot from her wedding here, but what about her picture-perfect bridal look that complemented her Dior couture wedding dress?
The stunning blogger and entrepreneur had her best glow on, looking every bit the blushing bride with her flawless complexion and signature bold brows. For her wedding makeup look, Ferragni roped in none other than celebrity makeup artist Manuele Mameli, incidentally her close friend and makeup artist for more than three years. Below, we got the lowdown on the products Mameli used for all her au naturel wedding looks:
1. Prep the face with a nourishing serum, such as Lancôme Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Serum, before foundation. Mameli used Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear in shade 025, a 24-hour longwear, velvety matte foundation that's available in 25 shades to match any skin tone. Spritz makeup setting spray on the face to ensure it holds throughout the ceremony.
2. For Ferragni's radiant glow, Mameli used Lancôme Blush Subtil in 03, a powder blush that is oil-free and oil-absorbing for complete comfort. A handy tip for any bride-to-be? Don't layer excessive makeup on your face—a natural, timeless makeup look is what you're going for.
3. For the evening look, Mameli upped the ante subtlely, applying Lancôme Monsieur BIG waterproof mascara on Ferragni's upper and lower lashes. A smudge-proof and sweat-proof formula, it gives 12x the volume without succumbing to a smudgey mess (even if the bride sheds an emotional tear or two.)
4. To let Ferragni's gorgeous blue eyes stand out, a matte lipstick was used as the finishing touch to her look. Mameli used Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge Drama Matte lipstick in 510, a sandy nude that pared well with her complexion.
Tip: Mix Lancôme Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Serum with your foundation for a more supple complexion—this also works wonders for those with dry/sensitive skin.
