We’ve pulled some of the top hair and makeup styles of the season—which style do you plan to wear on your wedding day?
Wearing your hair up has definitely remained a constant all year. While the bun, hair length, and hair accessories have varied style-to-style, bride to bride, wearing hair up has definitely taken the lead on the hair style charts this past year. Adding accessories to personalize your style, such as feathers, birdcage veils, or gems clipped in throughout your hair, wearing hair up in an elegant bun is a universal style for brides of all styles and kinds.
The dramatic look. Accent your eyes and eyebrows with a bold color, a plum or mauve eye shadow and a pink lipstick to accent your features, while adding dramatic flair to your makeup palette. Having your hair up allows your makeup and features to be accentuated, and adds a bold look to the bridal makeup ensemble.
The classic look. Classic red lips and skin tones on the eyes with blush is a classic makeup look that is a “safe” look for all brides with all skin tones and face shapes. It highlights the lips with a bold color, yet will trail the attention down to the detail and look of the dress.
The natural look. This is a great look for darker skin tones, as you’re able to accent your skin color and playing up your fabulous dress. Stick to skin colored eye makeup, a neutral blush (or bronzer) and faint pink on the lips. Shown here, you can see how the eyes pop by using natural colors and all attention is drawn toward the natural features of the face and highlighting the dress. We spend so much time and money on finding the perfect dress…chose a makeup palette and hairstyle that makes all eyes gravitate toward your bridal gown style!
