The Do’s and Dont’s
Preparing for a wedding is a big project. For the ladies in the wedding party, knowing what you’re wearing on the day of the wedding is an essential task.
While all focus is on the bride, it’s important not to forget about the bridesmaids. Whether you’ve been asked to be a bridesmaid or you’re the bride to be and searching for inspiration, here are a few considerations for your bridesmaids’ beauty plan.
Mix it up
Your hair and makeup doesn’t need to match your dress. If in doubt, keep it neutral and opt for a soft Smokey brown eye and rose lip. As long as your makeup doesn’t look too heavy or garish, you won’t really go wrong in terms of shades.
One size doesn’t fit all
Bridesmaids don’t need to wear the same makeup as each other. Differing products flatter different people and what works well on one bridesmaid may not look as good on another. Keeping a makeup colour palette with a choice of shades is a great idea to create a uniform look. If it’s in the budget, you could organise a wedding makeup and hair trial a few weeks before the big day. Working with a professional stylist will help you discover flattering shades and what compliments your skin tone and hair colour.
Don’t overshadow the bride
Nobody wants to overshadow the bride on her special day. One way to do that is to make the bride stand out with her hair style. For example, if the bride is wearing her hair in an up-do, then consider the bridesmaids wearing their hair down. This simple trick makes it easier for the bride to be the centre of attention.
Accessorising the bridesmaids’ hair with a beautiful clip or flower is a genius way to add some oomph to their overall look and it’s a practical addition to both long and short hair.
