Makeup is a seriously unique element to our lives and this time of year really allows us to dabble into some pretty interesting areas within the makeup spectrum. Bridal makeup, for the most part, is typically played pretty safe, which is fine, but there is a world of wonderful color and design out there, so limiting oneself to the 'nude look'..... well, let's not cut off our nose despite our face just yet shall we!? Eden and I were pretty hot to tackle ombre lips, but with a usable twist to them. Sure we see plenty of ombre lips scattered all over Pinterest, but really how wearable is something that starts off purple and finishes lime green? Great to look at and all, but let's be honest, your hard pressed to find someone walking down the street like that, let alone an aisle! Together Eden and I put together 4 gorgeous ombre lip looks to jump start your bridal makeup inspiration from dark and sultry to light and lovely. Whether your looking for more of a show stopper look like our Baroque ombre lip, or something to play up your beautifully feminine side like our Frostbite Pink, these 4 ultra wearable ombre lip looks are pretty much bridal makeup heaven!
Lace is a staple within the wedding world from the delicate creations placed on stunning gowns to intertwining lace details into decor. We wanted to take lace one step further, into the realm of statement lace if you will. The result are three wonderfully dynamic lace looks that define unique wedding hair. Look 1, a simple row of lace flowers in a soft pale pink, is used as a dramatic accent piece to a thick textured side braid do. Using lace this way creates a play on a crown, without all the fuss. Look 2 is far more bold, something that not every bride will be as adventurous to try. Utilizing a handcrafted piece of embroidered lace featuring exaggerated peaks and valleys, the bridal lace facial is born. Scalloped lace edges work their way through our brides do up front, while the depression of the valley serves to frame her face. Fresh and bold, something that is dreamy to perfection for the fashion forward bride. Lastly, look 3, a statement crown in black. Black embroidered lace with sequin detailing serves as the perfect forum to create a lively twist on a more traditional look. Petite yet grand, the black lace grown is the ultimate lace wedding hair adornment, something that is easily thrown into the mix post ceremony. Whether your feeling a bit bold or want to play it more to the conservative side, your sure to crush on at least one of these unique wedding hair looks, each detailed in lace.
