Bridal Hairstyles

Big Day Beauty

After planning all the little details of your dream wedding, now comes the best part -- choosing the makeup and hairstyle that'll make jaws drop and hearts flutter. Here are some of our favorites, and for the complete list head over to Makeup Tutorials!

 Berry Stained Lips:  If you’ve got a berry-themed wedding, I highly suggest following suit and wearing a matching hue on your lips. To help balance the loud color of your lipstick, keep the rest of your makeup neutral by only using shades of beige, tan, and taupe.

 Pearly Polished:  This is my go-to look whenever I have something adorning my hair, whether it’s a small tiara or a  flower crown . Since I already have a lot going on up top, I like keeping my makeup low-key by dusting on just a bit of shimmer eyeshadow on the inner corners of the eye. It makes for a more fairytale look, which is perfect for rustic weddings! All I have to do is pair it with a wine-stained lippy, and I’m good to go!

 Modern Classic:  A modern bridal makeup is something that brings a bit of old Hollywood glamor into your makeup. If you want to know how to do bridal makeup like this, it boils down to two things: a cat eye and a bright red lipstick that will make everyone go va-va-voom. Don’t forget to swipe on  a bit of highlighter  on your cheekbones to finish the look!

 Greek Goddess:  Channel your inner Aphrodite by pairing your headpiece with falsies, a flawless face, and a coral-tinted lip. Keep your brows natural looking by using a light hand when applying a shade that’s close to your brow color.

 Bronzed Beauty:  This is a look that’s perfect for ladies who’ve just gotten back from a holiday and were lucky enough to get a tan  at the beach . Now you’ve soaked up a ton of Vitamin D, show off your new color by keeping your makeup simple. Put on some bronzer, get a swipe of mascara, and layer a sheen of gloss on your favorite peach-pink lipstick.

Rock Your Wedding Photos!

"Being a bride is a little bit like being famous for a day: There will be hair and makeup, a beautiful dress, and paparazzi (i.e., the wedding photographer) who will follow you everywhere you go. That last part—being photographed all night long—can be daunting. But getting gorgeous wedding pictures that stand the test of time (unlike Dad’s ’70s flares or Mom’s puffy sleeves) can be one less thing to worry about."  Head over to Vogue to check out their expert advice for taking the perfect wedding pictures!
