The Beauty Bible: SS18 New Season Beauty Looks to Inspire
Good Morning, bride beauties! we are feeling fab this morning, it may be early but hey, it’s Friday! We we have some super pretty inspiration for you on the blog in this weeks feature, The Beauty Bible, and not only that, but we have a stunning wedding fair at the dreamiest of venues this Sunday; we just can’t to wait to show you.
What are you all getting up to this weekend? I’m looking forward to kicking back with a glass of fizz and enjoying the (fingers crossed) first lovely spring-like days. In the meantime, however, feat your eyes on today’s pretty feature…
With fashion weeks across the globe rounding up just a couple of weeks ago, beauty inspiration for sure, in the mass. It’s impossible not to be drawn in by the glowing skin, tousled hair and, of course, statement trends that will soon to be adorning beauty counters all over. And, the best bit? We are waving goodbye to winter, the sun is shining and we are feeling oh-so inspired.
March is the key date for swapping those smoky shadows for something that represents something, well a little more light, fresh and bang on trend. We say when the weather is starts to turn, your beauty look should too.

Fresh Faced & Peachy Vibes…
Spring and Summer brides should look no further than the high fashion runways for all things beauty. From radiant fresh faced skin, to statement lip colours that will WOW as you walk down the aisle.
This palette is all about the glowing, dewy skin and soft peachy hues. Big brand, MAC Cosmetics caters for this look in every way, shape and form, and their gorgeous new formulas are designed to help brighten skin and create the most flawless base for seamless application. MAC’s Lightful C is a heaven sent range of moisturisers and light boosters, we love these for improving the texture, brightness and complexion of skin – whilst giving the appearance of healthy, fresh skin. Isn’t that what every Bride-to-be wants?
Pop a drop of our favourite strobe cream on, a shimmer of rose-gold highlighter, and finally, a swipe of a ultra creamy lip colour. Tadaa! A look that is perfect for both Spring and Summer. Gorgeous!
Tousled, Twisted & On Trend Hair
Next onto the hair… Take advantage of the gorgeous “good hair” weather that Spring brings us by incorporating delicate hair pieces and lovely wedding day braids. Our favourite hair trend that was gracing the runway’s had to be low braid’s and twisted knots. What do you think?
For the modern bride, a perfectly shaped low ponytail would do the trick, and for those seeking elegance we are swooning over the milkmaid braids. Let a few soft wispy hairs gracefully frame your face to create the quintessential effortless ‘do.
A Vibrant Red Painted Lip
Red isn’t just reserved for Autumnal and Winter months, you know. A bold red lip is the perfect way to pull off a statement look; romantic, sexy, and an oh-so classy colour.
Wear it best paired with a light illuminating foundation, or tinted moisturiser to preserve the prettiest natural glow and let the lip do all the heavy hue lifting. This way, the result won’t look or feel too overdone, leaving room for a soft smokey eye, if you want a more sultry look. Either way, a red lip is the perfect way to dress up your day time look, or simply wear on it’s own with natural make-up for a bold bridal pop.
We love the collection of NARS Lippies and glosses. Available in all textures from matte’s to velvet and creme formulas. Which one’s your favourite, loves?
Of course we had to finish on the best thing about this time of year. Nothing quite says Spring and Summer like floral inspired looks and beautiful botanics. Not only is Spring a great time to wear flowers in your hair, but to also take inspiration from their pretty pastel colours and textures, too.
Experiment with glossy and creme eye shadows for blown out smokes and if you are wanting to be a bit bolder? Incorporate some charcoal eyeliner smudged into your lash line too. Colours we are so crushing over are lilac’s and green – unique yet the perfect Spring time combination. A palette of soft flush tones, natural emphasised brow’s and the slightest hint of brown mascara will be a real eye pleaser.
Oh, and don’t forget the blush too!
