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.

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.

Color Inspiration: A Hint of Mint

As wedding connoisseurs, we’re prone to falling head-over-heals for a pretty palette. Mint green is that oh-so lovely color that just tugs at our hearts. We’ve plucked all kinds of minty fresh inspiration for you, like freshly-hued eye color, lovely stationery, and pretty lingerie that will surely inspire your honeymoon packing list. And while mint green may not transcend the seasons, last hits of summer are a must before autumnal colors take over our RSS feeds. Enjoy the inspiration!     Photo Credits: 1 Hello Studios Wedding Photography 2 JOIELALA 3 She-n-He Photography and Design / Via *** 4 Atlantic-Pacific 5 & 6 Via ***. 7 Via *** 8 Via *** 9 The Nichols / Walton’s Fancy and Staple cake / Via *** 10 Cupcakes and Cashmere 11 Via 12 Via ***. 13 Wendy’s Lookbook 14 Via *** 15 Via *** 16 Via *** 17 Stila eye shadow in “Cha […]
