Wedding Wednesday: Hair and Makeup Inspiration

Whether you are doing your makeup your self or hiring a professional, everyone needs to start from some sort of inspiration.  Your dress and decor may go out of style but your bridal look should not.  The key to anything bridal is to capture your natural beauty and personality. This is not the time to try out that purple liner or chic tangerine lip.

Glam Wedding

Glitzy hair pieces and old hollywood waves are the perfect glamorous bridal look. They are the perfect styles that won't date your pictures. 

Winged liner and a bold lip scream glam! Make sure you test out winged liner throughout the months before your wedding to figure out what thickness and shape most flatters your eye shape. 

Romantic Wedding

A curly side chignon and type knot are incredibly romantic.  
The chignon is one of the most popular wedding hairstyles because of how effortless it looks.  The key to pulling off the topknot is to make it a bit messy like the bride above.  The more clean and pulled back it is, it will fall more on the glam (Kim K) side of things.

Romantic inspired makeup is all about soft blended looks.  
Neutral eyes and rosy cheeks will always win over your groom and your guests.

Bohemian Wedding

Two rules:
1. The messier the better
2. Flower crown, always

Bohemian makeup tends to sway to the two extremes of makeup.  
The first would be a very messy smokey look of neutral colors. The second would be almost no makeup at all, emphasize your features with a light lining of the lash line with eyeshadow and a neutral lip.

There are so many options to choose from and it can be quite overwhelming! But the most important rule to live by is to find a style that will reflect your personality.  Choose a style that you will be happy to look on 20 years from now.
