Wedding Hair & Beauty Beauty inspiration

Chances are if you have are newly engaged, you have already started thinking about embarking on a new beauty regime in the lead up to your big day. Now is the time to start eating healthily and exercising. Eating plenty of fruit and vegetables and drinking lots of water (forget fizzy drinks), will do wonders for your complexion. All brides most definitely want a flawless complexion on their wedding day. In Style & the Bride’s beauty inspiration section, we have celebrity looks that you can emulate. We know full well how brides to be are influenced by A-list stars, which is one of the reasons why we will be focusing more on celebrity content. We will also be focusing on beauty looks that you can emulate, and fashionable beauty trends of the moment. Even if you have a make up artist booked on your big day, it is important that you are not completely reliant on him/her. They can of course suggest beauty looks for you, but it is far better if you have an idea of what you want. It is imperative that as well as having a hair trial, you have a beauty trial too. There is no point in just booking a make up artist for your big day without having a trial first. He/she would never have met you before and might create a beauty look for you that you hate, which is the last thing you will want on the morning of your wedding. If you have had a trial, you will be confident that the make up artist will be able to recreate the look you want. Like every other aspect of your wedding day, it is important to go for a beauty look that makes you feel confident and is more importantly, a reflection of you. The last thing you will want is for your partner not to recognise you as you walk down the aisle.
