Bridal Beauty 101: Runway Done Your Way

December 12, 2013 By

Searching for the right aesthetic to accompany your bridal style? Here, we break down three looks right from the runway to show you how to do it your way and venue options to enhance your wedding’s overall style.

LOOK I: ROMANTIC
This look is all about soft edges and flowing lines. A sweetheart neckline is the foundation of this look and the headband and ponytail keeps it youthful.

Venue Suggestion: This bride is sentimental in her approach to wedding planning. Her wedding will take place in a field of wildflowers at dusk.

Beauty Tip: Keep things easy with a tinted moisturizer in lieu of foundation and a strong brow. Skin should be glowing so make sure to use a highlighter along the cheeks and the bridge of the nose. Keep lipstick simple with a soft pink, neutral tone.

LOOK II: CLASSIC
This look is all about clean lines and focuses on one element to create a statement.

Venue Idea: This bride has a minimalist mindset and wants things to flow organically. Her wedding will take place at an art museum.

Beauty Tip: Focus on one element such as the eyes or the lip to create impact. It’s all about effortless, natural beauty. Hair can be up or down, but the key is that it can’t look too “done”. It should be touchable and inviting.

LOOK III: CONTEMPORARY
This look is all about geometric lines and taking risks.

Venue Idea: This bride is all about the “wow” factor. Her wedding will take place in an industrial space with amazing city views.

Beauty Tip: Keep it simple. The dress is the standout in this look so your makeup shouldn’t compete with that. Keep hair sleek (think Carolyn Bisette Kennedy) and keep makeup to a minimum. Mascara is your friend as is a good hair pomade to keep fly-aways under control. Now is the time to try a low chignon.
