How to Get A Wedding Day Glow Worthy of a Princess
Like millions across the country, we couldn’t wait to see what Princess Eugenie would look like on her wedding day last Friday – and we weren’t disappointed! Gliding down the aisle in a bespoke Peter Pilotto ivory gown, she looked like a princess bride from a fairy tale, complete with a radiant glow.
While Eugenie’s wedding-day glow might have been from sheer happiness, we want you all to look your most radiant on any given day, but particularly a special day like a wedding or another occasion. And that’s where your KOHA Beauty konjac sponge comes in, gently buffing the skin to unveil an ethereal glow, before you can amp it up with skincare and makeup for a beauty look worthy of a princess.
“In the weeks leading up to your event, that’s when you should start using a konjac sponge, if you haven’t started using one already,” explains Charlotte. “Great skin is all in the prep, and although short-term use has a noticeable effect instantly, for consistently beautiful skin, you need to put in the work. Starting early gives the skin time to resurface and get rid of any stubborn dry or flaky patches, plus it gives you plenty of time to get through any purging stage, where blemishes are forced up to the surface, out of the skin.”
And how often should we be using the konjac sponge, to get gorgeous glowing skin?
“I would recommend using the sponge twice a day, in the morning and evening, to get the best results,” Charlotte says. “In the morning, use the sponge with just water alone, and in the evening, use it alongside your favourite cleanser to effectively eradicate makeup, dirt and grease, and prep the skin for your evening skincare. Use whichever sponge best suits your complexion, but if you have an oily skin, swap between the Bamboo Charcoal and the Pure White sponges to rebalance the skin and keep any blemishes at bay.”
So, you’ve cleansed and exfoliated – what’s next?
“Pat the face dry, and apply a facial toner to the skin to tighten and brighten, before applying a nourishing moisturiser to suit your skin type. Use an eye cream too, applying with your little finger in sweeping motions to eradicate puffiness. Spend a few minutes massaging in your products properly, and then leave the creams and lotions to settle for a few moments before moving on to makeup.”
After skincare, your skin should be naturally fresh and glowing, but if you are looking to amp up your radiance and recreate Princess Eugenie’s beautiful bridal look, follow these top tips from celebrity makeup artist Sara Hill…
“Princess Eugenie’s look is reminiscent of the Duchess of Cambridge’s bridal style; just like Kate, she’s opted for velvety matte skin with a soft glow and a flush of pink, paired with deep brown on the eyes to enhance the shape. To get the look, apply a light layer of a soft matte foundation, and set with an illuminating powder to reflect the light and create a luminous glow. Sweep on a soft pink powder blush to finish the skin. This is a classic look that will suit most brides, and works beautifully to show off naturally smooth and radiant skin, as it allows the skin to be the main focus of the look. Just be sure not to over-apply product and cover up your hard work!”
So, there we have it, top tips from the experts to ensure that you look as radiant and glowing as a princess bride for your special event! Just remember, it’s all in the prep…
