A new feature up on Once Wed called “Finding Your Own Bridal Style.” We created three different hair and makeup looks to go along with the three distinct styles – Modern, Boho, and Romantic. Here are the look breakdowns for hair and makeup for each style:
Hair – Sleek centre parted low braided bun. To create this we started with straight hair, parted it down the centre and pulled the hair into a ponytail at the nape of the neck. The ponytail was then braided, pulled apart and pinned into place to create a bun.
Makeup – Defined brows using an angle brush and Concrete eye shadow from MAC. Skin was sculpted and highlighted using creams to keep the texture smooth and dewy. Lips were defined using MAC Soar lip pencil and filled in with MAC Brave lipstick.
Hair – Messy, undone side braid. A small braid was brought over from one side and fishtail braided into a sideswept braid. To have it more loose looking we pulled it apart and pulled some strands out, creating more fullness and texture.
Makeup – This one was super fun. Freckles were created using a few different shades of MAC pro longwear concealer and dabbed on strategically using a stippling brush and a pointed eyeliner brush. Eyes were softly swept with browns and gold shadows to enhance the shape. Lips were kept natural in colour and given a generous coating of MAC clear lipglass.
Hair – Classic tousled updo. Hair was curled then pulled into a ponytail in the middle of the back of the head. The curls were then separated and pinned to create a full, soft shape.
Makeup – Rosy tones and lashes. We wrapped a soft, shimmery rose tone shadow around the eye, added a generous coating of mascara to the top and bottom lashes, and fluffy false lashes were applied. A hint of creamy pink was added to the lips and a light dusting of blush to the cheeks.
