Romantic Hair and Makeup Inspiration for Every Type of Bride

Sometimes a girl needs a little beauty inspiration! Our friends at RawwBeauty Makeup Artistry and j.woodbery photography put together this lovely compilation of bridal hair and makeup looks. Enjoy!

For this dramatic, couture look (above), they took the brides curls and teased them into a shorter bob.  Not makeup for wallflowers, she also has a bright pink lip and bold eye makeup.

Prefer a more natural approach? This is the perfect look for brides that don’t normally wear a lot of makeup. Her hair is done with a loose braid along the side, and left down with big waves.

This retro look is so much fun! Classic red lipstick and black wing-lined eyes are always a cool way to go for a retro shindig.  RawwBeauty gave the bride a combination of a bouffant and low ponytail.

This bride (above) is a perfect example of not overdoing everything. Because her emerald eyeshadow is super bold (and gorgeous), they kept her hair really simple with waves and a white flower.

The boho bride (above) combines sultry, earth-toned makeup with casual hair.  The stylist gave her a loose fishtail braid and floral headband to complete the hippie vibe.

This updo would definitely pair well with a Grecian dress. And her makeup is perfectly bronzed and glowing, with hints of gold on her eyes and peachy lips.

This sweet look (above) was achieved by pinning curls into a loose bun, and makeup in cool tones.

What’s a bride to do when she has short hair? Rock. It. The hair is tousled and pinned back on one side, and the makeup is pure coppery goodness.
