|Start with this dress......|
When Lover.ly reached out and asked me to choose a dress and then craft look to go with it...the options were endless! Glam, retro, simple, so many gorgeous dresses to choose from. But you know what? With the arrival of spring, I couldn't help but think of a stunning boho bride! Just picture it... warm sun, butterflies, perhaps a small ceremony in your favorite meadow or botanical garden. This dress (Lavandar from Modern Trousseau) made it really easy to imagine the perfect slightly hippie chick bride. (side note...doesn't that model look like Catherine Zeta Jones?!?)
So you've got the dress, now you need the right 'do, accessories and makeup to set the tone. I picture loose waves or soft, undone curls with a few romantic braids pulled back for texture......
Keep jewelry simple....consider a vintage find like these beauties from Mia Montgomery
(Etsy.com) or a few layered necklaces, and be sure to choose sweet (and comfy!) ballet slippers to suit the free-spirited mood, and allow for all-night dancing too. Now to my favorite part...the makeup!
Build your look around flawless and glowing skin, like this pic of Kate Hudson.....
Try a CC Cream for coverage, plus hydration AND SPF...a must for outdoor ceremonies! (Try IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream). What to skip? Harsh elements like too much highlight and contour, graphic winged liner or any unblended edges....your look is all about fresh and natural looking beauty!
Next, create a youthful flush on cheeks with a combo of cream blush (I love G-spot from NARS the Multiples collection...a perfect peachy pink) topped with a bit of powder blush with shimmer for shimmer, glow AND extra staying power. (A current favorite?
MAC Mineralize blush in Warm Soul..a gorgeous shimmery peach)
Top it all off with lips the color of pink lemonade .......
(try Smashbox's Be Legendary Lipstick in Electric Pink) for a sweet touch that's just right for your "I do" kiss! Use a matte formula dabbed on with your finger over a moisturizing balm for a soft, but long-lasting look. And there you have it, your inspiration for a ready for spring boho wedding look.
