Whether you're getting married this year or just want to daydream about the future, it’s important to first narrow down your bridal style so you can select the ideal hair and makeup looks. If you envision your nuptials on a beach or in a ballroom, we’ve rounded up four top bridal themes to help inspire one of your most important beauty statements!
Forget the poufy gowns and extravagant sparkle, if you are a hippie at heart you’ll want to keep your hair and makeup simple but add whimsical flourishes. Weave in a few fresh flowers and micro-braids for an earthy updo. Or, for seaside nuptials add in a starfish, seashells, or a sand dollar barrette with beachy waves. Your makeup should be natural, so steer clear of bright or dark eye shadows and liners. Instead, chose a warm peachy-bronze blush for a sun-kissed glow and subtle neutral hues for your lids.

Have you been planning a fairy tale ceremony since you were a little girl? Be a princess on your big day and top your half-up, half-down ‘do with a sparkling tiara or headband. For your makeup, opt for thick, feathery lashes and rosy cheeks like Kate Middleton did for her royal wedding. Or, stay true to your ultra girlie theme and dust your eyes with iridescent shades of pink and violet.
