While not all of us will have a little black book of the world’s leading beauty experts or a mega budget to drop on beauty prep, there are tips we can pick up from the pros – some of whom have even released the exact products they used to create the looks.
With access to some of the best hair and makeup artists in the world, it’s unsurprising that celebrity weddings are unashamedly glamorous. And, with their carefully selected beauty squad out in full force, you can pretty much guarantee other-worldly glowing skin, perfectly glossy hair and meticulously applied makeup. Ample hunting ground, then, for inspiration when it comes to planning your own big day.
Married in 2014, Poppy’s beauty look stands the test of time. She worked with A-list favourite, Charlotte Tilbury to create a warm, summer look complete with bronzy skin, defined eyes, fluttery mascara, peachy cheeks and a pretty pink lip. The best part? Charlotte listed the makeup she used, from the Overnight Bronze Glow Gradual Tanner enlisted to prep skin night before, to the Instant Look In A Palette (in Beauty Glow) that took care of eyes and cheeks, as well as the exact lip shade (not Electric Poppy – the shade inspired by Delevigne, as it happens), but Pillow Talk a subtle nude pink.
Hair-wise, Poppy’s been vocal about her favourite colourist, Josh Wood, who’s regularly tasked with keeping her creamy blonde colour toned to perfection. For some similar DIY action, he’s created a range of shade shots you can introduce into your hair routine at home to knock out any brassiness in blondes or enhance the deeper depths in brunettes.
