What’s The Best Bridal Makeup Look If You Are Wearing A Tiara?

Hey princess brides! Did you know that the first rule of wearing a tiara, according to Britain’s leading authority on the subject, is that rank does not dictate who can or cannot place a dazzling array of gems on their head?

 

Add some glow and sparkle to finish off your bridal look.

Rather it is the occasion. So go ahead and rock a tiara on your big day because apart from weddings there are increasingly rare occasions these days when tiaras are absolutely essential. And besides, the ancient etiquette is that you wear a tiara for the first time on the occasion of your marriage. This is because tiaras symbolize the loss of innocence and the crowning of love.

So what’s the best bridal makeup look if you are wearing a tiara? How should you wear your hair and makeup? The updo is a classic hairstyle that is known for its versatility – a good updo can be a perfect fit for your dazing tiara. But if you have long hair then wearing it down with simple curls and a fantastic tiara will make your wedding hair look simply gorgeous on the big day. As far as makeup goes, you’ll want to create a  super sophisticated look. Search for finely milled powders that sparkle like diamonds and can be used on the eyes. You can create an elegant make-up look with some delicate yet dazzling details that will spruce up your smokey eye but, be careful not to over do it. You don’t want your makeup to compete with your tiara! The idea is to let your natural beauty shine through as you sparkle your way down the aisle.

100 Years of Bridal Hair & Makeup Looks – A Vintage Bridal Study

Down The Aisle Style: 100 Years of Bridal Hair & Makeup Looks

Today’s blog attempts to beautifully and chronologically demonstrate with the bridal beauty fashion history from the past 100 years. This year is all about vintage inspired weddings and bridal hair is no exception. As a professional makeup artist dedicated to brides I feel it’s crucial that I share knowledge of wedding trends and styling, so in an attempt to grow my own understanding of what vintage weddings through the past 100 years were all about, I offer you this blog. Since a lot of my brides want a wedding look that expresses their personal style while also reflecting a rich tradition, it’s important being specific about the era a certain wedding is based upon and not simply generalizing all styles to this vague, blurred term that ‘vintage’ is. Nothing achieves that goal as gracefully as vintage hair and makeup. Here is a luscious look at wedding beauty fashions from the turn of the 20th century to the present. Let’s take a look back at the best of the last century.

Bridal vintage style is associated with classy sexiness, youthful wholesomeness, and flawless beauty. Vintage styles have never been more popular, with style icons like Scarlett Johansson to Dita Von Teese indulging in retro glamour. In fact the trend of retro pinup-style clothing, hair, and makeup is emerging in contemporary art, movies, ads, and on the fashion runways. Taking inspiration from burlesque divas and celebrities, so many of our brides seek to enhance their image with the effortless glamour and mysterious charisma of classic pinup beauty. BRIDAL MAKEOVERS Innovative & creative styling to bring you stellar makeup and hair artistry. Specializing in hair and make-up from the 1920’s – 1980’s we can transform you into a jazz era flapper girl, a starlet from Hollywood’s golden age, a rock n roll pin-up or a 60’s sex kitten! We at BRIDAL MAKEOVERS have a passion for beauty from a bygone era yet, love the idea of a vintage style wedding gown and hair with more modern makeup done in fresh ways. TIP: First create an inspiration board that features rouge lip colors that are pulled from a vanity table drawer from long ago, mixed with futuristic glittery eye accents, timeless natural tones and indelible smoky shadows and liners. The idea is you want to mix of old and new makeup techniques for a contemporary yet vintage look. The overall message: pair vintage with modern to make a statement that’s unique and all your own for your bridal makeup.

Carolina Herrera’s Spring 2014 Bridal Collection is classic romanticism meets Old World grace. The makeup paired with the regal gowns lent softness to the overall look that was delicate yet daring. Rosy lips and cheeks with shimmery eyes completed, rather than competed with, the wedding dresses. Unlike what’s shown on the spectacular Parisian runways, the makeup worn by models at Bridal Fashion Week in New York can be easily translated for regular women.

 

Monique Lhuillier's designs have always been undeniably romantic, ultra-feminine and utterly dreamy.

WHAT IS YOUR BRIDAL MAKEUP STYLE? (Part 2)

Greetings lovely brides!  Welcome to Part 2 of my Bridal Makeup Style Blog!

 

Are you bold, or are you simple?  Modern or vintage?  Bridal style is as unique as we are as individuals. No matter what vibe you want to channel on your big day, have I've got the makeup look for you!

Are you bold, or are you simple? Modern or vintage? Bridal style is as unique as we are as individuals. No matter what vibe you want to channel on your big day, have I’ve got the makeup look for you!

 

BRIDAL MAKEOVERS has identified the most requested bridal styles.  We feel that when you are able to define your wedding style, it will be much easier and certainly more productive when communicating with the experts you’ve hired to help you create the wedding look of your dreams. Your wedding experts stand ready to bring your unique vision to life. But we are not mind-readers. The dialogue, the adjectives, phrases, colors, textures, and any visuals you bring into a trial run meeting to help your beauty pros understand you and will act as a launching pad for the creative process. Working with a client who has spent more than one to two hours exploring their style and is able to describe it translates into a much more cohesive event that is a direct reflection of YOU. This is the new first step in wedding planning, the definition of your bridal style. BRIDAL MAKEOVERS by Aradia is going to help you describe your wedding look into existence.  Once we understand the essence of your style, we can take it from there and completely wow you with the results of their interpretation of your style!

 

If you're a romantic bride, you want a super-feminine look for the most romantic day of your life.

If you’re a romantic bride, you want a super-feminine look for the most romantic day of your life.

 

The Romantic Bride: She is feminine with a touch of classic style. Everything about the romantic bride is timeless. The dress is flowy and soft and of course, pastel colors for the makeup is a must!  For the most romantic day of your life, you want your look to match. Go for dewy skin, huge eyes, and a delicate pout. For your hair, consider a loose up-do secured with a jewel-encrusted barrette (preferably an antique or heirloom), with soft falling tendrils gently framing your face. Or, should you decide to really romance your groom, go for long tousled curls for that super-feminine, “I–am–your–princess” look.

 

Free-spirited brides look to express their style in a fun, contemporary way with makeup looks that fresh.
