Elisa Flowers's Best Day Ever for Brides Magazine
Elisa Flowers formulated an Instagram-ready beauty look for Brides' August/September 2013 issue. In an editorial titled "best. day. ever." the makeup artist portrayed a twentysomething-couple and their wedding party, with the ladies wearing an array of cosmetics; however, each woman embraces the full eyebrow trend. "Fuller brows enhance the eyes and become the defining feature on your face," said Flowers. "Think Kate Middleton."
But, Flowers mentioned, a bride-to-be typically eschews fads on her big day. "The makeup ... is a reflection of her personality," she explained. "Some brides have a very subdued personality and her makeup will reflect it with a more natural or classic look. A bride that is bit more of an extrovert will go with a bolder eye or lip." Flowers's own suggestions include a range of Dior products: Diorshow Brow Styler in Universal Shade, Diorskin Nude Skin-Glowing foundation, Dior 5 Colour Eyeshadow in Stylish Move, and Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in Fireworks.
