In addition to bridal market, the latest ready-to-wear and couture fashion shows yield plenty of inspiration. That’s why we’ve had such pleasure poring over hair and makeup photos from the recent showings of Spring 2012 collections! Below are some of our favorite looks.

A note: take notice to the quote below from makeup artist extraordinaire Bobbie Brown and you’ll be on your way to a stunning bridal look.

Bridal-Ready Makeup
…after a few small tweaks

A minimalist approach to silver eyes at 3.1 Phillip Lim or romantically-flushed apricot cheeks at Preen could render stunning results.

Bold Lips
not for the faint of heart

Though we are well aware that hot pink lips at Betsey Johnson and crimson lips as seen on the Donna Karen runway may not be for your everyday bride, it is realistic to take one element and make it your own on your wedding day.

Natural Beauty
the “less is more” approach

Whether it’s a hit of bronze, nude lips or a swipe of ultra thin eyeliner, a natural approach to makeup is simply timeless.

Romantically-Assembled Hair
volume is key

We loved the “textured sixties-esque chignons” at Diane von Furstenberg and the perfectly-styled ‘dos at Jil Sander.
