On your wedding day, you want to feel like the best version of you. There are some key rules to guide you on your way down the aisle to help you feel confident and beautiful on your special day.
It’s important to have makeup that flatters your colouring for your wedding day. A trial with a makeup artist is a must to make sure you feel gorgeous on your big day. Bring in any jewellery you will be wearing and a swatch from your dress. Make sure you photograph yourself with your makeup on to see if there will be any flashback in your photos.
Glamorous – A smoky eye and red lip are perfect for those brides who want to make a splash. Keep it matte for a sophisticated look and pair down the rest of your makeup leaving your eyes and lips as the focus.
Neutral – A beige eye, a slight cat eye flick with your eyeliner and a nude lip is flattering on most brides. You can create a bolder lip or stronger eye if you want to add a little something special.
Pop of colour – For the bride who isn’t afraid to make an entrance, try bringing out a colour from your bouquet or your bridesmaid’s dresses. Try a hint of pink or deep jewel tones for that something different on your wedding day.

Your dress choice can help you decide on a hair style, if your dress has a lot of detail around the shoulders and neckline, it’s the perfect opportunity to wear your hair up to make the most of the detail. For a sleeveless gown with clean lines like the Mori Lee 5108, sweep your hair to one side, adding some glamorous waves. For a detailed back line like the Pronovias Pladia wedding dress, pin your hair back into a chic bun and let some tendrils fall down, framing your face.
A bridal gown like the Sottero & Midgley Shaylee wedding dress is perfect for loose waves, the detailed strapless style semi sweetheart neckline is perfect for cascading curls, the ultimate romantic hairstyle.
The classic French manicure is always a safe choice because it’s so flattering on all skin tones. If you want something a little more subtle, try an all over pastel pink or a neutral colour like beige. If you want to really show off that ring, try a deep traditional red.
The most important beauty rule on your wedding day is to stay true to your style. Think of how you do your own makeup, how you think your hair looks the most flattering and what you’re comfortable with and stay true to your natural style. It is your wedding after all.
