5 beauty looks for non-traditional bridal photography?

We've got five trends that are edgy enough to suit your personal style, yet 'bridal' enough to not upset your in-laws...

Just because it's your wedding doesn't mean you have to play it completely safe with your makeup. We looked to the cat walk for beauty trends that can be adapted for your big day. Think copper-hued smoky eyes, eye-popping lips and playful nails to add that enhance your look. The sky is the limit when deciding what looks best for you.


Voluminous Ponytail

Channel Audrey Hepburn's effortlessly chic look with a voluminous ponytail with centre part. Add a sparkling headband and you have a style that is the perfect mix of pretty and opulent - church appropriate while exuding plenty of night-time glam and allure.


Textured Updo

For a classic updo, go for texture and height, with soft tendrils around the face, then add a hint of whimsy with a gold wreath or delicate crown. A sweep of caramel eye shadow is ultra-flattering and complements green and hazel eyes perfectly. The sheer, sweet shade is perfect for those transitional, between season months, when you're sandwiched in between spring's pastels, winter's opaques and summer's sun-kissed bronzes. To finish the look, give yourself a playful bubble-gum-pink pout.


Statement Lips

Are you daring enough to rock a bold statement pout with your all-white ensemble? This vivid orange hue is striking yet feminine - and flattering against any skin tone. The intense pop of colour looks great with natural-looking makeup.


Big Hair Smoky Brown Eyes

Want a look that's fashion forward yet sophisticated? Why not try this classically romantic matte brown smoky eye?


Blue Nails

Sure, you could wear a baby blue ribbon sewn into your wedding garter, but we think an unexpected sky-blue manicure is a whole lot cuter! There are thousands of shades to choose from. A pastel-pretty cornflower blue or opt for a bright burst of cobalt or navy. You could even do an accent nail in blue, if you so desire. Alternatively, sport a blue pedicure for a subtler take on the trend. Wear your blue nails with glowy, natural-look makeup
