On Beauty - 5 Spring 2014 Beauty Trends to Try For Your Wedding
The catwalks are always informative, if not inspirational - sometimes we just can't see the logic in sending women out in full-on knitted body stockings. When it comes to beauty, once you filter out the seriously OTT choices (blue lipstick? No, thanks) you can find some great inspiration in what the bigwigs of the design world choose for their models. And some of these choices are perfectly appropriate wedding beauty! Starting with...
Dewy, glowing skin
Daisy Fuentes was just one of the designers who gave her models fresh, bright, glowing, dewy skin for spring 2014 - so perfect for any bridal makeup look. And you know glowing skin doesn't have to mean oily; we recommend using a liquid illuminator such as Smashbox's Halo Glow and keeping the T-zone clear using a spot of powder and some oil-removing sheets!
The cat eye
We don't recommend going seriously Amy Winehouse on this one, but at Tracy Reese the cat eye was a little undone - not too thick and not too severe. If you're trying this one out at home, lean your elbow on the mirror and use it to keep your hand steady.
The berry lip
This was big business at Michael Kors and Joie, and will look so great on your wedding day. Opting for a stain will mean you're less likely to have to do serious upkeep! We like Benefit's Benetint for a long-lasting color.
The undone updo
Copy the backstage pros at Michael Kors and have your hair stylist leave your hair a little undone. A side part, a low bun and a lot of stray hairs makes for a very romantic take on the updo!
The orange lip
Okay, okay - don't get carried away. We're not recommending you go full-on bright 'n' bold tangerine, seen here at DKNY - but a light orange sheen, perhaps in the form of a gloss or a balm, can look really lovely and bright, especially for a spring wedding!
