A few weeks ago, Lover.ly spurred me to create a wedding look inspired by one of three wedding dresses of their choice.
Never heard of Lover.ly? Make sure you check out their website here. Their website serves all of your wedding needs. They offer wedding inspiration, shopping resources (find your perfect gown!), and planning tools for your BIG day!
When I first saw their website I thought, “Hmm…this is kinda like Pinterest for weddings. But BETTER!” I can’t wait to use them as a resource when I get married!
Say YES to The Dress!
Out of the three dresses sent to me, I decided to do a look inspired by this classic heart-shaped gown (above). I love the flow of this gown and instantly knew I could create a look to match its personality.
Say “I do!” to Classic Bridal Makeup
For weddings, I love to give my brides a perfect glow, a neutral eye, and a little drama in the lashes. I believe a bride should never be overdone and she should look flawlessly finished on her wedding day.
So of course, I had to create a classic bridal makeup look to compliment this gorgeous gown. I chose to use the Lorac MegaPro palette for this look and used the colors “White” (on the lid) and “Fawn” in the crease. I also used Anastasia Beverly Hills, Maya Mia Palette. The colors used from this palette were “Sienna” (in crease and under eye) and “Gold bar” (in eye socket area).
I decided to take these colors and create a soft cut crease (which means you have a more defined line between your lid and crease area). I chose this type of eye look because it went well with the lines of the dress style (it has a very fitted and asymmetric flow to it). To finish off the look I added a small pop of gold on the inner corner of my eye, just to add that extra glow that every bride needs.
The sweetheart cut and lace appliqués on the dress made me think of words like “sweet” and “chic”. While creating this look I was inspired by those two words. I hope you think this look conveys just that!
Hair & Flower Inspiration
Next, I found a beautiful flower bouquet that went perfectly with the pretty burgundy lip color I am wearing. It really played well with the earthy tones of the boquet.
Lastly, I found this gorgeous hairstyle that I thought would show off the beautiful heart shaped front of the dress. I love the way her hair looks effortlessly beautiful and classic – just like the makeup!
And there you have it, a perfect blend of classic, timeless, and effortless beauty. This is the perfect look for your wedding day! Would you rock this wedding look? Comment below and tell me!
