Lover.ly + The Gloss Guide

Beautiful Gowns Inspire Beautiful Makeup


I'm thrilled to be teaming up with Lover.ly, the wedding binder that lives in a cloud. Think Pinterest for weddings with amazing wedding planning features. I have designed 3 makeup looks for 3 incredible wedding dresses. These 3 dresses are all so different and beautiful in their own ways. I had so much fun delving back into the world of weddings! Here is my hair and makeup inspiration for these gorgeous gowns. 

For the first look I took inspiration from one of my best friend's wedding look. This dress is so different and just plain stunning. I wanted to keep my look classic, yet bold. I think the dress makes such a statement there is no need for over the top makeup. Her blue eyes popped and her raspberry lip was classic, but still gave a little color. I think the red lip in the runway look is really beautiful, but I don't think it's practical for a real bride. I'm just not a fan of a red lip on your wedding day. It could be perfect- or it could be a complete disaster. I like that her hair is pulled up to show off the beautiful top. 

Eyes: nudes with a pop of plum and lashes that are super emphasized at the corners
Lips: raspberry 
Face: lightly bronzed with a rose cheek color





For the second look, I took inspiration from my own wedding. I came across this dress and thought it had similar details to my own dress. This dress is just flawless. I think the hair and makeup I wore on my big day would compliment this dress so well. 

Eyes: bronze, gold, and browns with corner lashes. 
Lips: pink/coral 
Skin: full coverage foundation with rose cheeks

For the third dress I wanted to go with an ethereal, whimsical look. This dress is beyond gorgeous. All of the exquisite details and the cap sleeve make this a dream dress. For this look I love the hair in a messy, lived in side braid. The makeup is bronze, pink, and oh so innocent.

Eyes: orange and pink bronze colors are used, brows are full 
Lips: baby doll pink with a hint of plum
Face: flawless airbrush look with pale pink blush


Hope you enjoyed these fun bridal looks! Be sure to visit Lover.ly to help create your dream wedding.
