Wedding day beauty is all about being the most fabulous version of your natural self. Although the wedding day is a major event, it is important to find a look that is comfortable, long lasting, and photo friendly.
This means that if you are usually a glamour girl, a dramatic makeup look may be the right choice. But if you normally prefer a fresh-scrubbed, natural look, a more subdued palette that plays up your features perfectly may be more appropriate.
In any case, a pretty lip tone, a healthy glowing cheek, and a dramatic lash are always appropriate. Lash extensions and false eyelashes are often featured in bridal beauty plans to ensure a long-lasting and tear-proof look.
For a more dramatic and glamorous look, a smoky eye and defined eyebrow may be added to the makeup look, or a deeper lip color may be utilized.
For bridal hair, the days of formal updos being the only choice are long over! Soft waves accented with sparkling hair accessories can be just as beautiful as more structured styles. It honestly depends upon the bride and what styles make her most comfortable.
The important thing is for brides to pre-plan their look and be open to trying out lots of different combinations. A good salon will encourage clients to schedule an appointment or two to do just this.
