Calling all the brides-to-be!

Natasha Khalid is, without doubt, one of the most gifted makeup artists of Pakistan. Having worked in the Dubai and Abu Dhabi, her portfolio boasts of collaborations with some of the biggest beauty moguls including revered names like MAC, Lancome, GUCCI, YSL and more. She is particularly known for her expertise with the party and bridal makeup. Together with her sister and mother, she runs one of the most sought after salons locally.
This week, the makeup maestro herself got hitched and obviously made a stunning bride, thanks to her extensive makeup skills, polished and perfected on hundred's of brides. If you are done fan girling on her, you can now get the stunner's makeup look here:
1. Start by prepping your skin. Natasha likes to use the Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant and follows with the La Mer Moisturising Creme.
Quick Tip: If you are on a tight budget, use a local product like Duvi Stockholm Toner to hydrate and even out your skin tone.
2. Next use a primer. Natasha uses the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream on the face.  You can also try Essence Cosmetic's All About Matt Oil Control Base. It helps in minimising the pores and is economical.  Make sure to use a formula that is in harmony with your skin type.
Quick Tip: Never forget to prime your skin before applying foundation. Preferably choose a light reflecting primer.
3. Follow by using Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation on the skin. You can basically use any high coverage formula that is long lasting and can conceal skin imperfections and makes it appear more flawless. Read our guide on the best high coverage foundations featuring both high end and drugstore formulas.
Quick Tip: Always blend your foundation in a patting motion. The heat from your body helps to melt the foundation and blend it well.
 4. Next Natasha used Cle de Peau concealer under the eyes. Use an orange corrector to neutralise the darkness. If you don't have an orange corrector, then use an orange lipstick instead. Next follow up with a concealer. Make sure that your concealer is a shade lighter than your skin tone. Too light and it will make your skin look ashy and too dark, the purpose of a concealer is lost. Also remember to conceal the top of your lids as well for an even tone.

5. After this, Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow was used as the Bronzer and Highlighter.
Sun stripping is the natural take on contouring that you need to try now!  If you are confused, use a matte bronzer and work by making an inverted 3 on both sides of your face and blend with a duo fibre brush. Finally top it off with a highlighter!
For best strobing results, apply a strobing powder first, then top it off with a highlighter.
6. For the blush Natasha layered Charlotte Tilbury Beach Stick in Las Salinas with NARS blush in Orgasm .
7. The eyebrows were perfected using Anastasia Berverly Hills dipbrow pomade in Chocolate .
8. M.A.C Liquidlast Liner in Black was used for the liner and Sketch eyeshadow by M.A.C was used to line the lower lash line
9. Natasha used the Huda Beauty lashes in Giselle to enhance the lashes.

 10. For the lips, finish off with a moisturizing pink lipstick formula
This was the end result!
