An eighties feel, the bridal way

Posted on

The fresh glowing radiance of no make-up skin is still very much the flavour of Spring/Summer ’17. Combine this with some 80s inspiration currently rocking straight off the catwalk from Fendi, Chanel and DKNY shows and you’ve captured the look of the moment.

It’s all about the blush, bolder stronger colours, and (of course) the glitter. Use a product like Youngblood’s HD Powder to hydrate your skin and provide a flawless base to last throughout the big day. Turn to Gleerful mineralize blush to bring back the brightness, then create a strong smoky eyed effect with soft touch shadow pencil ]. Blend a soft line of glitter over strong eyeliner to complete the final look: beautiful, fierce colours that remain fresh throughout your wedding day.

Create the look

We all love boho freestyle hair as much as a strong vibrant makeup look that brings out our eyes. Structure is very important to boho hair, while colour blending is a key component of the make-up stage.

With all types of plaits still very strong this season and worn in every type of style, we’ve created a sophisticated boho hair style to combine with bold, 80’s inspired makeup.


STEP 1. Use an exfoliator twice a week a month before to get a flawless complexion ready for your big day. Make sure you select one that is suitable for your skin type.

STEP 2. Massage a cream moisturiser thoroughly into your face and neck, using circular motions and light pressure.

STEP 3. Apply a face primer to get that original GLOW. I personally love Youngblood’s mineral primer.

STEP 4. Next, apply the foundation in your chosen shade, for a flawless, breathable finish.

STEP 5. Use a cream matt concealer in a lighter shade under your eyes and massage in with your fingertips so the heat of the fingers will work the product into the skin. Beware of light reflecting under the eyes as it could make your eye area look too light and show up dark circles more.

Conceal the rest of the face with a matched shade to target any areas of uneven skin tone that needs extra coverage.

STEP 6. Finish off with a HD rice base powder to set and leave a Flawless finish. Make sure you use a rice base powder rather than a talc base, as this will help with any white flash on your photos.


STEP 1. Fill in any gaps in your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil, then use an eyelash curler to get maximum curl & volume.

STEP 2. With the Eye Blender Brush, apply the eyes Nars Porto Venere eye paint all over your eyes using a backwards & forwards motion.

STEP 3. Define your eyes with a Classic eyeliner gel in black, applying a thin line across the upper and lower lash line and pulling out to a subtle feline flick.

Step 4. Using a vibrant blue/green shimmer eye shadow blend over the lash line to create a strong line, keep blending and building the line until you have a strong colour but soft edge to the line.

STEP 6. Finish off your eyes with a black mascara, using the tapered end to define each lash along the bottom lash line.


STEP 1. Using a contour palette, suck in your cheeks and follow the hollow.

STEP 2. Dust a highlight shade onto the top of the cheekbones and down the centre of the nose and Cupid’s bow to get that ‘dripping in candlelight’ GLOW.

STEP 3. Line your lips with nude pink shade that mimics your natural lip colour.

STEP 4. Apply the Tango lipstick from young blood ,then blend a clear gloss in the centre of your pout. Edge your lip with a highlighter to create your lush pout.

STEP 5. Finish the look by young bloods nectar blush popping the central colour onto the apples of your cheeks. Defuse all the colours with high definition powder to give your look a defined yet softened 80’s look.


1.Prepare the hair with relevant products to create hold and texture.

2.Use a large barrel tong and soft curl.

3.Take two horizontal sections across the front of the head.

4.Over direct the first section and create a 4-way plate, repeat with the second section, then clip out of the way.

5.With the rest of the hair plait a loose plait going around the head.

6.Build the first two plaits around the front of the head to create a high full plait.

7.Finish off the hair style with The Beatrice hair vine from my bespoke bridal headwear range at
