#1. RED CARPET READY
A cascade of soft waves, peach-pretty cheeks and a vibrant lip give this look star quality.
#2. RETRO ROMANCE
A seductive flick of eyeliner and the perfect pout in palest pink lend a hit of retro charm.
#3. SPRING PRETTY
This braided beauty is the picture of a spring-perfect bride. We love the use of delicate pink to highlight Emma-Leigh’s killer cheekbones.
#4. CONTEMPORARY ELEGANCE
Soften an elegant up-do with a few well-placed curls. Complement with flawless skin and artfully defined eyes. Voila! Bridal beautiful.
#5. MODERN GLAMOUR
Makeup: Jodi Martin. Makeup: Kerrie Brooke. Both Bye Bye Birdie. Earrings: Dragonfly Designs. Lingerie: House of Lingerie
A swept fringe and braided detail lend a contemporary edge while a glossed pink-peach lip is ready for that first kiss.
#6. A WELL PLAYED BRAID
Add height and interest to your bridal ‘do via an intricate woven braid, which looks stunning with Caitlin’s graduated colour. Play off porcelain skin with statement eyes and a burst of colour for lips (which won’t wash you out like a nude lip with pale skin can).
#7. VINTAGE VA VA VOOM
Channel a charismatic vintage vibe with rich plum lips, eye-catching curls and a glittering headpiece. What a doll!
#8. CLASSIC BEAUTY
It’s hard to go past a classic chignon, especially with lush lashes and the perfect peach blush. Love this lace headpiece too!
