NYC Bridal Market 2012: Backstage Beauty at Ines Di Santo

One of our favorite bridal market beauty looks came from the runway of Ines Di Santo. Damali NYC created a classic look befitting of almost any bride. Regarding makeup, Bridal Guide noted, “The emphasis was placed on bold, matte brows and lips, with fresh, clean skin.” In fact, we’re taking some of the guess work out of the makeup products used; below are products to check out in order to achieve a similar look. Bobbi Brown lipstick, Chanel highlighter, and Josie Maran concealer were all listed as items used. The hair hearkened back to retro appeal, as well. The lead hairstylist of Damali NYC was tasked with creating a “modern yet elegant hairstyle that is a little retro, but still soft and pretty.” And of course, everything was topped off with Maria Elena Headpieces hair accessories – surely the cherry on top! With this post, we wrap up our coverage […]

The Bold Bridal Lip

A bold pout is not for every bride. But for the bride that wants to make a beauty statement, a quick swipe of colorful lipstick is the way to get there – and fast. You may know the rules to make this look work: pick a color that compliments your skin tone, keep the rest of your makeup to a minimum (at least color-wise), and be confident with your bold approach. What makeup look will you dream up to accompany your gorgeous gown on your big day? Here’s some inspiration to get you on the right path.     Photography & Makeup (where applicable) Credits: 1 Maggie Harkov Photography / Tim Quinn of Giorgio Armani Beauty / Via *** 2 Rachel Peters Photography / Michelle Cudmore Makeup Artist / Via *** 3 Kimtasha / Via *** 4 Alice Swedenborg / Makeup by Maria Gonzalez / Via *** 5 Via *** […]

Beauty: Nail Inspiration for The Summer Bride

The internet is brimming with bridal inspiration, and any bride who has not hit up the web for ideas is missing out. One major thing we’ve noticed is how creative brides are getting with their nails, piling on glitter, strips and embellishments. It’s all in the details, and your nail polish is another extension of your bridal look. So as not to compete with your jewelry, we recommend keeping your nail polish and extras fairly low-key. Below are some perfect options for the bride-to-be, with a few punches of color thrown in for the bride who loves to stand out. There’s sparkle and shine, texture and color. And if you see anything you love, please Pin It!     Photo Sources: 1 Via *** 2 Cupcakes and Cashmere 3 Via *** 4 Via *** 5 Via *** 6 Via ***. 7 Via *** 8 Via *** 9 Via *** 10 […]
