Bridal Hair and Makeup for The Very Fairy Bride

This blog is not about fairy tale weddings per se; instead it’s dedicated to the Fairy Bride.  Every once in a while I receive a call from a bride with a whimsical fairy-like spirit. She wants to sparkle and shimmer on her wedding day. She craves a natural makeup application, a soft messy up-do/or loose waves and dewy skin to give her that doe-eyed fairy-like air of ingenuity.

Bohemian Chic Bridal Beauty Inspiration

Today’s Bohemian Chic bridal beauty inspiration comes from free-thinking brides that shun convention and trust their wildest instincts, and love natural bridal looks.

 

Bridal Makeup & Hair updated to a chic, boho aesthetic.

Bridal Makeup & Hair updated to a chic, boho aesthetic.

 

With its free-spirited prettiness, no other style quite compares to Boho-Chic. For me, it is a style of fashion makeup that take elements from Bohemian and pre-Raphaelite influences. Chic, bohemian style is about easy breezy makeup and “un-done” hair. No frills, no fuss, just a laid back glow and soft tresses that you can take from day to night and of course, from ceremony to reception!
