Red Carpet Bridal Beauty Inspiration

The Grammys Awards 2015 ceremony on Sunday, Feb. 8th in Los Angeles was one of the most expectant events of the year. There were plenty of celebrities sporting spectacular evening gowns, flawless makeup and gorgeous hairstyle at the red carpet. Some of them were so stunning that one couldn’t tear oneself away from those red carpet beauties. I’ve picked out some of the best red carpet looks spotted at Grammy Awards 2015 that will inspire brides for their own red carpet event.  I enjoyed watching the fearless, show-stopping fashions, but these three ladies had the best glam from head to toe. As far as Red Carpet Bridal Beauty Inspiration goes, each one of these celebs got it right for the brides!

 

 Chrissy Teigen wore her blonde highlights in bombshell beachy waves.

Chrissy Teigen’s hair screams bombshell, a look that can be achieved by adding hair extensions for both length and volume. Hair extensions that are heat resistant are ideal. Mist hair with a heat protectant spray that also provides a shine boost. Take a two-inch curling iron and curl two-inch pieces of hair away from the face, stopping the curling iron at about the same height as your ear. Chrissy gave dimension to her blond locks by adding individual strands of gold hair. Finish off the look with a light-hold hairspray, to keep hair in place. All in all, she had had an entirely flawless look – perfect for bridal! She had her eyes lined with black liner and a beautiful chocolate eyeshadow that was subtle, yet dramatic.

 

What was the most popular accessory at the 2015 Grammys? Skin.

So, how does Gwen Stefani always have a flawless face? An easy trick is to apply a moisturizing serum, and let it absorb into the skin before applying makeup. A moisturized face will always be the best canvas for a perfect makeup look. Once the product has been fully absorbed, prime the face with a silicone-based makeup primer. Next, apply a liquid foundation in a shade that matches your skin tone. Use a brush to blend product into the skin, making sure to cover the jaw line and neck. Add a peachy blush to the apples of the cheeks. Take a shimmering bronzer and apply it to the hollows of the cheeks, sweeping it up to the temples. Set the face makeup with a translucent powder, to ensure that makeup stays put throughout your wedding event.

 

Loved her sexy, tight ponytail and gorgeous cat eye!

Ariana Grande looked like an absolutely flawless Greek goddess in her one-shouldered Atelier Versace with metallic silver accents.

I predict that her sleek, high ponytail will be a big trial run request for our upcoming brides. To accentuate her gorgeous look she wore a shimmery gold eye shadow, with the colors being gold and brown based and paired it with false lashes and a nude lip. The best part was her feline eye look that was created with a black liquid eyeliner that elongated her eyes, like a cat’s. It was one of the most dramatic looks of the evening, but the application looks gorgeous on her. This catlike look is as hot as a smoky eye but takes fewer steps and way less makeup — that means no meltdowns, perfect for your big day!

Bridal tip for fierce cat-eye wings:

Layering liquid liner pencil is the key to a stay-put look. The liquid dries and locks down the first layer of color. With a black liquid-liner pen, make four evenly spaced dashes over the pencil line, then connect them. To ensure a clean line, use a cotton swab with makeup remover, then concealer on the bottom edge of her freshly painted wing.

We are coming off of one of the biggest weekends for the wedding industry: Bridal Fashion Week. Taking place in New York bi-annually, it attracts buyers, editors, bloggers, event designers and planners and showcases the most glamorous designs the bridal world has to offer. From the catwalk to the altar. It seems as couture fashion this season is all about “white lace and promises!” I love to see the hot trends on the runway and how they inspire real brides!

The bridal industry is all about innovation, and Bridal Fashion Week highlights the trendsetting positioning and cutting-edge details that Bridal Makeovers exemplifies. Aradia of Bridal Makeovers takes trends that she sees on the runway, combines them with her imagination and then has her team replicate them for bridal clients. This season, designers unanimously returned to tradition with elegant lace, long sleeves, and classic silhouettes. There were fresh silhouettes, billowy ball gowns, and couture details.

A memorable Bridal Fashion Week is winding down. The models have sashayed down the catwalks in the most exquisite gowns and the wedding industry collectively ‘ooed’ at the clouds of tulle, glamorous silks, satins, ruffles and intricate lace that graced the shows. Bridal beauty trends this year from the top designers – Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de la Renta, and Vera Wang included. When these couturiers recently hit New York to reveal their collections I not only became obsessed with what I saw on the runways (soft colors, dramatic ruffles, and sheer everything), I couldn’t wait to share with my brides the elements that will inspire their bridal looks. So take a peek at my favorite new looks from the hottest names in bridal, and check out the wedding beauty trends I am spotting now.

The Look: The fashion world was all aflutter last week as designer Monique Lhuillier presented her frothy confections of white lace, tulle, and satin floating down the runway. The models makeup looks were very dreamlike, ultra-feminine and sensual with different textures, ranging from shimmer to matte with sparse shimmer to pearly in shades of pretty peach with iridescence and taupes with coppery shimmers. I am enamored by these luscious looks. Continue Reading…

Vidal Sassoon: Loss Of A Legend

"If you don’t look good, we don’t look good.” Vidal Sassoon

"If you don’t look good, we don’t look good.” Vidal Sassoon

How true of a statement this is! Vidal Sassoon, the man who made hairdressing “hip” and an “art” died 2 weeks ago, but not before leaving his mark on the world of fashion.

Hairdressing the ‘Sassoon’ way means working with the hair in its natural state and giving the wearer a hair style that works precisely for their style and ease. This was a totally new concept back in the 60’s. Vidal Sassoon was the innovator of ‘wash and wear hair’ therefor freeing women from the subjection of a weekly visit to the hair salon.

 

“My idea was to cut shape into the hair, to use it like fabric and take away everything that was superfluous.” Vidal Sassoon

“My idea was to cut shape into the hair, to use it like fabric and take away everything that was superfluous.” Vidal Sassoon

When Mr. Sassoon entered the beauty world he understood that for most women, a trip to the hairdresser meant having their hair slathered in Dippity-do, going under a dryer with hair set in tight, prickly brush-rollers for at least an hour, and then having their locks coiffed and teased mercilessly into a sort of  helmet-head hair style guaranteed to hold in place till the following weeks appointment. He started to think about hair and the client in an entirely new way.  Vidal Sassoon became a pioneer in the world of hairstyling by turning it upside-down with his new visions and concepts.

 

Hair by Vidal Sassoon - Spiral Curls

Hair by Vidal Sassoon - Spiral Curls

Vidal was inspired by modern architecture; the way the structure of buildings graced the land, ushered the modernist angles into his early hairstyling techniques. He translated this into the way he did hair. He knew how to create art on someone’s head that suited their bone structure and face shape. This is something that is not simply taught, but a gift that you are born with.

I have to be honest, it totally makes me smile when I think of this iconic gentleman slapping a clients hand away with the comb if they tried to touch it mid-cut or mid-style. He also lost patience when his clients gave too much input and once threw his shears in the air out of frustration, and they stuck in the ceiling! Classic!
