The ultimate bridal beauty guide


Venue, dream dress and flowers chosen… While these are vital decisions for any girl to make before her Big Day, an important decision that often gets overlooked in the early stages of planning, is what beauty look will best suit the occasion (and the dress, of course!).

While a classic smokey eye and nude lip has become the standard in bridal beauty, we love that more and more women are breaking away from the stereotype and embracing different looks, such as a bold lip!

  1. Maybelline Superstay 24hr Lip Colour is definitely a must have for a bride because there isn’t much time to reapply makeup.

  2. I love the first look with the winged liner, it makes you look more awake and makes the eyes look bigger.
