How to Get Erin Foster’s Bridal Glow

“My goal for makeup is always to put my woman first,” says makeup artist Aliana Lopez. “I want her to feel comfortable, confident, and ready to have a great time.” Lopez, whose clients include Emily Weiss, Eva Chen, and the OG #Girlboss Sophia Amoruso, takes a balanced approach highlighting women’s features with a glamorous edge. And for Erin Foster’s Nashville nuptials on New Year’s Eve, Lopez worked with the bride-to-be on her big day and the rehearsal dinner beauty moments. “I wanted her to look glowing, beautiful, and happy,” says Lopez who layered gilded and bronze shades to create a subtle, sophisticated shine.

“Sometimes wedding planning can take a toll on you, so I went with a glistening gold eye,” explains Lopez who used the Satin Kajal Liner in Bronze as a base of colour before topping it off with the Lid Lustre in Blonde. “I kept the rest of the look quite nude, with just a little pop of colour on her cheeks [and] for some extra glow I pressed a pump of the Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturizer into her cheeks down to her décolleté.”

And while one of Lopez’s signature makeup looks is enhancing natural beauty, she’s hoping to have a bit more fun with her Foster and her other clients in 2020. “I would like to play with more colours on [Erin’s] eyes. Maybe some sapphire blues or emeralds greens are in her makeup future.” However, one constant for Lopez this year will be to continue on the clean beauty revolution. “My clients are going to be more aware of what’s being applied onto their skin,” says Lopez. “It’s a breath of fresh air to know that when you use VB Beauty, you’re getting clean formulas that are good for you.” Anything she hopes to see from the brand this year? “Some gorgeous foundation and concealers!” exclaims Lopez.

Below, Lopez breaks down how to recreate the look:

1.

Satin Kajal Liner in Bronze

Apply the Satin Kajal Liner all over the lid, from you lash line to your crease.

2.

Lid Lustre in Blonde

Lightly press Lid Lustre in Blonde on top of your lid, concentrating in the middle of the eye, on the inner corner, and on the bottom lash line. Follow with lots of mascara on the top and bottom lashes. Finish the look with a slightly darker nude lip, a little concealer, and a little blush.

3.

Cell Rejuvenating Priming Moisturizer

If you want a dewier finish to your skin, press the Cell Rejuvenation Priming Moisturizer on top of your cheek bones down to your décolleté.
