A Classic, Timeless Look
On your wedding day, you want to look like the most beautiful version of yourself. You can never go wrong with a classic, romantic and timeless look: the bridal chignon paired with natural-looking makeup. Chignon buns are a hairstyle that looks good on everyone and will work for any season. This updo frames your face and can be pulled back into a sleek bun that's pulled at the nape of your neck - or you can show texture with curls and pull it back loosely. You can also incorporate braids for added texture, like fishtail, halo or French. Accessories such as jewels or flowers can also easily be woven into the design. Natural-looking makeup is a classic bridal look that never goes out of style. Soft browns or pinks on the eyes with a soft peach or pink blush on your cheekbones will give you a rosy bridal glow. Complete your look with a soft pink or peach lipstick. Whatever look you choose, make sure it is timeless and true to you.
