Model Miranda Kerr always looks tops–it’s kind of her job. So, of course, it’s no surprise that her Spring wedding day was no exception. She looked radiant in her custom Dior gown (NBD) as she tied the knot with Snapchat billionaire Evan Spiegel. But what is surprising, is that the supermodel and founder of the makeup line Kora Organics, did her own face for the big day.
And why not? Consider the research she’s put in, both as a model receiving makeup treatments from professionals for hours on end and as an entrepreneur in the beauty business.
In a video shoot with Vogue, the star shows us how she achieved her “simple and timeless” wedding-day look using her favourite products. Here’s what she used and how:
Wash, mist and lift
First the former Victoria’s Secret Angel cleanses her face and spritzes it all with Kora Rose Balancing Mist, which “serves a dual purpose” as it works as an activating medium for her NuFACE “little lifting machine.”
Moisturize, activate glow and lay foundation
Next Kerr mixes a bit of Kora Noni Glow Face Oil (which she uses “morning and night religiously”) with some Kora Soothing Day and Night Cream, and applies it before moving on to her lightweight foundation. She uses Suqqu, which is available only in the UK, but your lightweight foundation of preference should work just as well. Around her eyes, she employs another lightweight product, RMS Un Cover-Up Concealer, which suits her fair skin tone.
Big on the blush
The Australian beauty is “obsessed with blush,” and her fave is La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream in Rose Blush, which she applies liberally, even just above her eyes. She then adds a bit of powder down the T-Zone.
Kissable lips and bold brows
Her lips she preps with Laura Mercier liner in Baby Lips and layers on some Dior Lip Glow. The brows, meanwhile, get a few swipes of Glossier Boy Brow to bring forth her beautiful and full eyebrows a little more.
And a smouldering stare
Around the eyes, it’s Tom Ford powder eye colour for a little added brightness. Then, an eyelash curler makes her lashes curl just so, before she applies some Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes Mascara to the upper and lower lashes.
The finishing touches
It’s back to the lips to finish things off–they’re kind of important at a wedding, especially for the bride. Charlotte Tilbury’s Walk of Shame lipstick makes her “eye colour pop,” while a little of the Amazing Grace, also from Tilbury’s Matte Revolution line, imparts a little pink that helps with that “timeless and elegant and classic” look Kerr is going for, and absolutely nails.
And that’s it! Fifteen minutes later and you’re ready for the most important photos of your life. Kerr makes it look pretty easy, so if you’re now convinced to cut wedding costs and do your own makeup, consider a trial run before rather than winging it day-of.
