For the wedding Nadya Sivkova did my wedding make up look. Our mission was to create a look that seems barely touched. Fresh, feminine, almost invisible and above all – resistant to the heat. It was so hot and humid on the day of the wedding (37C!) that it was a real challenge to have hair and make up that would last. However, Nadya did her best and my make up lasted throughout the entire night! Here’s what she did and used.


Nadya went for the Latte Makeup look in the eyes. She did not use color but bronzer instead. That way the eyes seemed sculpted, not made up. She achieved it with NARS matte bronzer (same one she used on the cheekbones).
Nadya added a slight shimmery sparkle at the beginning of the eye and under the brow bone with Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick.
Instead of eyeliner, she defined the eye with DIOR’s waterproof black pencil.
To finish the eye look – she added subtle lashes at the edge of the eye, which then topped with Bobbi Brown’s Waterproof Volumizing Mascara. This opened my eyes and my eyelashes looked so delicate.


For the glass skin effect Nadya used my favorite super hydrating Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base. As an invisible hydrating veil, she applied Clarins Skin Illusion Foundation on top, and Bobbi Brown Intensive Serum Concealer for the eye area.
Then, she set the entire face with Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Weightless Powder.

For the cheekbones she used NARS matte bronzer and the DIOR Forever Couture Luminizer highlighter. What I loved was the delicate girlish look she created on me using the famous NARS blush – Orgasm. This is literally the perfect blush shade and I’ve been using it ever since.


For the lips, the most important thing was a natural gentle shape, which she created with NARS precision lip liner in color Venice. The velvety softness and hydration was ensured by the NARS After Glow Lip Balm – again in the perfect Orgasm shade. She fully lined and colored the lips with the pencil, and the balm added a beautiful shine and finish to the look. I’ve been using this combo ever since, as well. Nadya really opened up my eyes for NARS and now I’m a huge fan of the brand!
