If you just got engaged or you are on your way to getting engaged, I’m sure you’ve imagined what your wedding day will look like. You’ve pictured the florals, the dress, and the overall aesthetic. You’ve probably decided what type of bride you are going to be as well. Not talking bridezilla, more like your bridal style – whether you are a glam, romantic, boho, etc. kind of bride. Depending on which kind of bride you want to be, your hair and makeup style should reflect it. So what is your bridal style? Let’s dive into these bridal styles and help you find the best fit for your wedding day!
If you are a glam bride, you probably want to strut your stuff down the aisle like it’s a runway. You are the kind of bride that needs a bridal style that is classic and stunning, so when you look back at photos you feel like you are a Hollywood actress.
Hair and makeup styles that suit a glam bride:
You will definitely want bold lashes if you are a glam bride, so you might want to check out false lashes vs. lash extensions and see what works best for you.
If you would describe yourself as more of a classic bride, one of your style icons is probably Jackie O; a classic beauty that wants an overall elegant feel for her wedding, and the memory to be timeless.
Your style is more simplistic and elegant, so it’s best to stay on the side of classic styles, rather than trends. You will want a soft makeup style, so airbrush might be a good option for you.
You are the kind of bride that doesn’t normally wear a lot of makeup or do too much with her hair and most of all wants to feel like herself. When you look back at photos, you want to see yourself looking back at you, not a version of you that you don’t recognize or feel comfortable being. You are probably a bride who will definitely want to consider lighter types of makeup and focus more on the skin.
Your focus is on feeling like yourself, so airbrush is definitely a good option since it’s a lighter kind of foundation.
Ultimately whatever kind of bridal style you want to embrace, just do what feels good to you. Spend some time on Pinterest, researching what you think is best for you. But keep in mind that you want to find styles that compliment you. It’s your wedding day, and you should do what feels best for you.
