10 gorgeous beauty trends for spring weddings

1. Embellished Chignons

A romantic updo is always an aisle do. Leave a few wispy strands loose to give your twist a subtle, undone quality. Then, add a jeweled hairpin to bring in some extra sparkle.

2. Natural Curls

If your hair is naturally curly, your wedding is not the time to switch up your look to pin-straight strands. Especially if you’re getting married outdoors (hello, humidity!).

Instead, condition your tendrils so they are healthy enough for any updo or down-do. There are so many beautiful hairstyles for curly hair -- start with one of these three.

3. Bohemian Braids

Just because your overall bridal style is a bit more eccentric, it doesn’t mean you have to ditch all conventional wedding details. You can still rock a veil with a boho hairstyle, like this side-swept braid. Just pin your tulle topper under the braid at the nape of your neck to show off your unique strands. 

4.    Bright Liner

Apply a hint of white or silver eyeliner to the inner corner of each eye, and then smudge it out with your fingertip. The bright shade will open up your eyes and give them instant glimmer.

5.    Shimmery Nail Art

A glittery top coat makes even the most classic bridal nail style -- the French manicure -- feel current. 

6.    White Out

Bleached-blond locks are all the rage right now. And while we would never recommend a drastic hair color change weeks (even months) before your wedding day, we do love the idea of accentuating already platinum strands with additional white accents. 

Think: a white floral crown and ivory eye shadow for an über-ethereal vibe.

7.    Barely There Makeup

If you don’t normally wear tons of makeup, you’ll probably feel silly piling on the products for your big day. However, you should plan on using a few key products -- you do want to look flawless, after all.

  1. A lightweight moisturizer with SPF (especially if you’re taking pictures and getting married outdoors)
  2. A matte, long-wear foundation that corrects splotchiness and redness in your skin, and that won’t look shiny in pictures
  3. Neutral eye shadow, to add polish to your entire look
  4. Waterproof mascara
  5. A subtly tinted lip balm to make your pout extra kissable 

8.    Deconstructed Topknots

High buns have a reputation for feeling stuffy, but this update on the ballerina bun boasts a tousled texture and oversize shape that give it a glam yet still effortless vibe. Don’t forget to hit it with weatherproof hairspray for extra staying power outdoors. 

9.    Beauty Foods​

There are a few super foods that should definitely be included in your pre-wedding menus to give your beauty routine a boost. Tomatoes, mangoes, papayas and pink grapefruit all contain lycopene -- an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that helps protect skin from environmental agents that can contribute to clogged pores and breakouts. 

10.    Colorful Eyeliner

We love the idea of injecting your wedding color palette into your makeup, but in truth, there are only a few ways to do it without overdoing it! Our favorite: Use the pastel version of your key shade as colorful eyeliner on just your upper lash line.
