Last week, Carolina Dali broke down Priscilla Presley's wedding makeup, and in keeping with the wives of rock stars theme, the logical next step in this progression is Bianca Jagger. Those amazing pictures of her at Studio 54 are nothing compared to the end-all be-all glamour of those taken at her wedding to Mick Jagger. Bronzed, dewy, and with a killer plunging blazer to boot. For the undeniably cool bride, who is unafraid to take risks and keeps her makeup more on the natural side. Now, for a tutorial, featuring makeup artist Vincent Oquendo.
Prep the skin first, of course. Vincent suggests using Tatcha Radiance Deep Brightening Serum to hydrate, following up withe the eye masks of your choosing (because being picky is a virtue). Moisturizing properly is key to blending in bronzer for a believable tan a little later.
“The thing I love most about Bianca's wedding make up look is the fact that it's a perfect radiant complexion that's not too overdone,” Vincent says. To keep the whole vacation vibe going, ditch the heavy foundation along with visions of a poreless, ceramic-like finish. This is the time to relish is something perfectly imperfect (it's a cliché for a reason). Keep things breathable with tinted moisturizer like Chanel’s Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup. If you’ve got any blemishes that need covering up (OK, imperfect, but not too imperfect), go for concealer that blends easily, like Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer—but use your fingers instead of a brush.
Start by filling in your brows with a brow powder one shade lighter than your natural brow hair, followed by a brow pencil to perfect the shape. Vincent is partial to Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo and Anastasia’s Brow Wiz, respectively.
To get that tawny, no-makeup eye area, use a cream eye shadow like Bobbi Brown’s Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Taupe blended up to the crease with a fluffy eye shadow brush. “Think feather duster-type shape,” Vincent says. “The cream shadow acts as a base for the shimmery colors coming right after and applying a cream show first guarantees longer wearability.” Take the same brush and use it with a bronzer like Charlotte Tilbury's Filmstar Bronze & Glow applying it all over the lid, mixing both shades. It’s kind of like what blush did for eyes this past NYFW...but with bronzer.
“Don’t put down that bronzing palette yet,” Vincent says. “Then I use it to sculpt and define the cheeks. Take the darker bronze color and dust it on cheekbones to create a contour and take the lighter shade and apply it on top of the cheekbones to highlight.” Vincent also recommends a non-powder blush for a more spontaneous looking color— Tarte Cheek Stain in Flush works.
Curl your lashes and apply the mascara like you mean it, but brush out clumps. Brown or black, whichever you prefer, both work here—it's more about volume than pure color impact. If your lashes are feeling a little sparse, apply some individual lashes every two lashes or so on your natural lash line with MAC’s 30 Lash and Duo Eyelash Adhesive in Clear-White.
Finish it off with a neutral, glossy lip but without the lip gloss. Too much shine can sometimes be a mess, so instead go for a hydrating lip balm like Butter London’s Lippy in Toasted Marshmallow. It’s more like a tinted lip balm, and with that name—who wouldn’t want a kiss?
