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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

 

1913-2013 - A dazzling tour of the past hundred years of bridal fashion.

1913-2013 – A dazzling tour of the past hundred years of bridal fashion.

 

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.
