Kate Moss went for an understated, polished makeup look at this weekend's nuptials of fellow model Leah Wood to Jack Macdonald. Her soft smoky eye is spot on and her creamy, neutral lip look made sure she wouldn't outshine lovely Leah. Not sure about those hefty earrings though.
Of course Kate looks gorgeous no matter what she does, but for us mere mortals, wedding season can be rife with beauty dilemmas. Finding a look to take you from the ceremony to the reception is tricky in itself, couple that with the added fact that you're likely to be only carrying a small clutch in which to stash your slap — not to mention the perils of daytime drinking — and you've got a full blown beauty crisis on your hands!
Hence, I'm going to be bringing you a series of Wedding Survival Guide beauty advice, from what to carry in your clutch to how far to take that on-trend look. For a few tips, read more.
First tip — don't try out a new makeup look on the day of the wedding, if you're planning to experiment do a trial run a few days before. Yeah, yeah I know you're not the bride, but no-one wants a guest to show up at their big day sporting crazy, candyfloss hair or overdone, goth-esque black eyeliner (well, unless your friends are very cool)! For a fail-safe look, copy Kate and choose a soft, smoky grey shadow, such as Ruby & Millie, (£5 reduced from £10) in 010 or the paler 510. Keep the focus on your eyes, with a natural base and nude lip gloss like Stila Kitten (£18)￼ — a golden-pink shade with a hint of shimmer.
