True Romance

For your bridal look embrace a laid-back, pared-down aesthetic.
Think undone braids, romantic updos and tousled pixie cuts.
When it comes to makeup, let your natural beauty
shine through with soft nudes, rose golds and light strobing.

Show off a glowing complexion with sheer foundation, a touch of gold liner and soft, glossy nude lips. For the hair, a tousled braid worn over loose locks is an utterly romantic choice. Create soft waves with a texturising product before braiding.

Play up your doe-eyed charm with Twiggy-inspired beauty — think loads of lashes, nude lips and a petal-fresh complexion. Add a wreath of dried flowers to a freshly cropped 'do, for a touch of whimsy and as an understated alternative to a veil.

Not every bridal hairstyle has to be an updo. Long, flowing tresses work with simple necklines. Accessorise with a delicate headpiece — this is made of precious pearls — and don't be afraid to go darker with the eye makeup. A subtle smoky eye using rich, iridescent peacock shades,
lend an air of quiet mystery.

A trend not just in jewellery and hair colours, rose gold shades on the eyes and lips combined with a touch of strobing make for a gorgeous lit-from-within glow. This makeup looks especially beautiful when caught in the light, just so.

Want natural makeup with more definition around the eyes? Consider the combination of off-white eyeshadow and black liquid liner. It plays up your peepers without looking too heavy or dramatic. Add height, grit and volume to short hair by backcombing and set with strong hold hairspray.
