On 27 September 2016, George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin were married in Venice. The bride wore a bespoke Oscar de la Renta gown and an engagement ring designed by George. Amal had a picture-perfect look and was hailed as one of the most beautiful brides of our time also because of her makeup. The legendary Charlotte Tilbury was the artist that Amal Clooney trusted with her wedding makeup. Tilbury revealed how she created the famous look, and her guidelines may be useful for Spring brides who will do their own makeup.
How Charlotte Tilbury Did the Prepping
According to the makeup superhero’s website, Tilbury started by prepping and plumping Clooney’s skin. She used the Goddess Skin Clay Mask, and then her Magic Cream. For the base, she combined the following three products: Light Wonder Foundation, The Retoucher (for disguising the dark circles, and a Light Dusting of the Airbrush Flawless Finish down the t-zone.
Brows and Eyes
Tilbury used The Brow Lift pencil to add definition to Clooney’s brows and combined the color through the hairs in the growth direction. For the eyes, she used Eyes To Mesmerise in Oyster Pearl, which is an antique gold hue. She washed the product back and forth with her finger and also used a touch of Champagne in the inner corners to brighten the eye. She then created a soft feline flick with The Classic Shimmering Brown Eyeliner. Charlotte Tilbury ran the liner along the lash line, extending the liner slightly on the outer corner to create a gorgeous elongated cat-eye. Finally, she added lashings of Full Fat Lashes mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
Contouring and Lips
Contouring was subtle. Tilbury achieved it by working the darker shade into the hollows of the cheek and sweeping the highlight shade on the tops of cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, and over the Cupid’s bow. For the lips, the makeup artist used Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk for creating the outline. She then layered M.I. KISS over the Matte Revolution Lipstick in Walk of No Shame to achieve pretty rosebud lips.
The Finishing Touch
Cheek to Chic: Love Glow was applied to the apples of Clooney’s cheeks.
