What make-up styles work best for a rustic wedding theme?
"Keep your make-up soft and light. Use a decent primer and foundation for maximum coverage. At the moment, Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation is one of my favourites.
"A liquid blusher and highlighter applied to the apples of your cheeks will create a natural shine without looking overdone.
"Place a translucent powder over your T-zone; this will help your make-up stay in place throughout the day.
"If you want to contour, choose a powder product that is two or three shades darker than your natural skin tone. Use a small round fluffy brush, and tap off any excess before applying it to the hollow of your cheeks and forehead.
"I find a natural or soft smoky look works best for rustic weddings. Sweep a copper eyeshadow over your eyelids and apply a brown version on to the centre of your lids. Ensure it’s mixed well, otherwise it may look too harsh. Use a brown pencil on top of your lash line, and finish with some mascara.
"Add colour to your lips by using a pencil and a soft pink gloss.
"If you fancy a deeper hue, then why not opt for a red or maroon? Blot your lipstick several times and reapply it. MAC does a lovely shade called Ruby Woo, and Charlotte Tilbury also does an amazing range called Matte Revolution."
