Here at Les Trois Soeurs we treasure our little black book, working closely with industry experts to gift our brides with the perfect tools to create that perfect day. This month we’re slipping behind the scenes with our good friend Bobbi Brown and her Head of PRO styling, Hannah, as she divulges her very best wedding day trends, tips and tricks, for an unforgettable wedding day look.


 Bobbi Brown Make Up

What’s the secret for making lip colour last through a thousand kisses?

The best trick is to fill in the entire lip with a matching lip liner before applying your chosen lip colour on top. This will stain the lip, so if your lip colour does succumb to endless kissing, the colour will remain perfectly in place.


What’s the best way to make a statement with wedding makeup?

If you wish to make a statement be sure to choose just one feature to emphasise. Either rock a smoky eye - I love a bronze eye on a bride - or a strong lip, but not both together. A strong raspberry lip on a bride gives a really pretty statement - you get the impact of colour without the drama of a red. 


Contouring is having a moment! What’s it all about and how could it enhance the wedding day look?

Contouring is most certainly having a moment but like all fashions, it won't necessarily be a ‘thing’ forever. I urge my brides to be cautious when following makeup trends – it can lead to makeup that will date quickly, so by all means be inspired, but don't go too full on. My advice is to warm the skin around the edges of the face and top of the cheeks and keep the under eye bright, and you'll achieve a subtly contoured look to help frame the face in your photos. Wearing white or ivory can wash out some skin tones in photography, so you may need to wear a little more bronzer and blusher than normal.


Should we consider the seasons when choosing our wedding day look?

It's totally appropriate to tie in colours from the season on your wedding day - fresh pops of pastels keep brides looking fresh in spring, while taupes and tawny shades reflect autumnal weddings perfectly. Bronze tones look great on the beach, while icy silvers are perfect for the winter wedding. 


Which investment purchase will take our beauty regime effortlessly from wedding day to honeymoon and beyond? 

Investing in a great serum will see your skin through the wedding, honeymoon and beyond. I always advise my brides get into a skincare routine incorporating serum in the run up to the big day.  I also recommend exfoliating twice a week and using oil at night, when needed, to help nourish the skin.  It can be amazing seeing the transformation in a woman's complexion from the trial to the big day. Drinking lots of water and exercising does wonders for the skin too!


What’s your favourite multi-use product to help keep clutch bag clutter to a minimum?

A great multi-use item for any bride’s clutch is Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks. Dab it on your lips for creamy lip colour and pat it into the apples of your cheeks to revive tired looking makeup. I always suggest brides carry a foundation stick too to top up concealer over any high colour areas, especially on the chin and around the nose - better safe than sorry! 


From ceremony chic to dance floor sleek – your top day-to-night tips and tricks please!

A quick way of taking your wedding makeup from day to night is to add a punch of strong lip colour, which makes a fun statement. However, a smoky eye is ideal for the dance floor and this too can be easily achieved with a dark grey shadow such as Bobbi Brown Eye Shadow in Smoke, blended all over your eye shadow and up into the crease of the eye.
