The classic wedding dress will always have a place in our heart. There is a canon of amazing designers who, season after season, turn out gowns that meet the criteria of what a wedding dress ‘should’ be – beautiful, timeless, and white. But for this post, we have decided to focus our attention in a new direction. If the last year has taught us anything, it is that the terms ‘normal’ and ‘traditional’ no longer apply and wearing what makes you feel alive, joyful, and of course gorgeous is what really matters. And if there is a day to wear something that allows you to truly live it up and express your best self outside and in, it is on your wedding day.

Bridal Beauty Tips for Every Skin Tone

Bridal Beauty Tips for Every Skin Tone

 

When Rhianna launched her cosmetics brand, Fenty Beauty, in 2017, she included forty shades of foundation (there are now fifty). This was unprecedented at the time – other leading makeup brands only offered half the amount. In just three years, Fenty Beauty has changed the game regarding what it means to be beauty inclusive, moving other cosmetic lines to vastly expand their selection to customers.

The impact that this movement has had on bridal beauty is apparent. Every woman, regardless if she is into makeup or not, wants to look (and feel) her best on her wedding. Most likely, you will be enlisting a beauty team, with the conversation about wedding makeup commencing well before the big day.

Here, Megan shares essential bridal beauty tips for every skin tone.
