1.    Hair Inspiration: The Classic Up Do and Simple Curls

Choosing the perfect hairstyle is relatively easy, when compared to choosing how to style your makeup for the day. Typically, many brides choose to have a gorgeous up-do. This is because they are the epitome of sleek and elegant. What is more, an updo is perfect as it means that you don’t have to mess with it or restyle it throughout the day. Many brides are keen to have a gorgeous up-do as once it is done, they don’t have to keep restyling their hair. For a wedding that is lasting all day, this is the perfect low maintenance style. What is more, it looks nothing short of perfect.

You need to consider your hairstyle when compared to your dress. If you are choosing an off the shoulder dress, you may want to have your hair down. Opt for light curls, to take the bareness away from your shoulders. For those that have a wedding dress that comes up to their neck, or has straps, a simple, chic up-do can complete the look. For dresses that have a lot of heavy detailing on the bodice, you may want to consider an up-do so that this detailing can be displayed. After all, you don’t want to cover the gorgeous fine detail with your hair. It should be showed off and admired.

Consider your accessories when deciding on what kind of hairstyle to have on your big day too. If you want a veil, it may be worthwhile having your hair down so that the headband can rest comfortably on your hair. You don’t want to cover an intricate hairstyle with swatches of material. Similarly, if you have a more detailed up-do, a simple, pretty hair slide can look the part. A hair slide with a few gems and detailing can make your hairstyle look even more special.

2.    Makeup: Keep it Natural, but Make Sure That Your Skin is Radiant

On your wedding day, you don’t want to look like natural and radiant. You don’t want to take a lot of makeup on, or you will look overdone. The key to looking beautiful on your wedding day is to keep your makeup simple and natural. If you are not a big fan of makeup in your daily routine, piling on the foundation and powder is going to make you look different. After all, your husband-to-be wants to see you as he fell in love with you.

The best thing about wedding makeup options is that you can visit a number of department stores for a consultation. You can even hire professional beauticians to come to your home on the morning of your wedding day. There is a wealth of choices afforded to you in this area. But, the key is to make sure that you look radiant and beautiful.

Start with a home cleansing regimen in the three months leading up to your wedding day. Cleanse tone and moisturise every night. This will remove dirt from your skin. You need to make sure that you are not sleeping in makeup as this will cause your skin to break out. Ensure that you are unclogging your pores by using pore-strips on your breakout areas. The t-zone is the most commonly affect area in all women. Your chin, nose and forehead should be regularly cleaned to get rid of blackheads and problems within the skin.

If you can afford it, opt for a professional facial once per month in the lead up to your wedding day. You can use a home facial kit or masks if you don’t want to go the salon. Your skin should exude radiance on your wedding day. The best way to ensure that you have perfect skin is to drink plenty of water and implement a skin care regimen in the run up to your wedding day.

Clear, perfect skin makes for a truly stunning bride. The rest will all fall into place.

Princess dresses can hide a multitude of sins. If you are not body confident, this will highlight the good parts and hide the less than good parts of your body. Mermaid style dresses look sublime, especially on tall, slender girls. Vintage lace and buttons suit curvaceous girls in the main. While you may have an idea of how you want your dress to look, you need to make sure that you consider your body shape. Ensure that your body is complimented by your wedding dress.
