The Wow-Factor Headband
Get The Look: By adding a bold headband to your ceremony or reception look, you immediately elevate your style! Whether adorned in pearls, gemstones, or crystals… You are sure to be a show stopper!
From the makeup artist, MLB Artistry: “For her look we went with a minimalist peachy dewy look. I tried to use minimal products keeping her fresh-faced and effortless! I used Danessa Myricks vision cream cover, Danessa Myricks division flush blush, and Danessa Myricks dew wet balm.
From the hairstylist at Stag & Doe Salon: “We chose this look to complement the headband by having a sleek and textured style but keep it romantic. I used Kevin Murphy Session Spray and Shimmer Shine.”
Daring & Dangled Earrings
Get The Look: Earrings are the finishing touch for any bridal ensemble. They can define your bridal style and give you the fashion-forward element you are looking for.
From the hair and makeup artists at M Salon: “Who doesn’t love a dewy, bronze bridal look that is especially great for any Oklahoma bride getting married in the summer! To get this look we used the fenty glow stick and use it on the bridge of the nose first and above the cheekbones and then use the Cheeky Palette by Nars in lighter color with a smaller brush and go right over the stick that you applied. The Fenty Glow Stick is a cream and then you follow up with the Nars Cheek Palette powder to get the ultimate dewy look. I used Fenty Glow Stick, Nars soft matte complete foundation, and Nars hot fix palette.”
Chained to You Necklace
Get The Look: Depending on the neckline of your dress, necklaces and chokers are a really fun accessory to make a statement with. Whether it’s bold and modern or dainty and elegant, choose one that suits your style!
From the hair and makeup artists at Profile Beauty Nook: “We went for a moody Persian look inspired by modern minimalism and simplicity. I used a Bobby Brown Lip, Fenty Beauty Bronzer for cheeks and eyes, Jane Iredale Brow Gel, Urban Decay highlighter, BareMinerals Complexion Rescue, and Jane Iredale Powder Mineral Blush.”
Rare & Regal Tiaras
Get The Look: Tiaras are the ultimate sparkle accessory! Whether you are wanting to fulfill your dream of a fairy princess wedding or are simply wanting to liven up your reception look, once you place that sparkle on your head, you’ll feel like the center of attention.
Brushed Salon and Makeup Studio: “For our makeup look we kept it natural with bridal tones and focusing a lot on the skin. Blush is very in right now, and that is my favorite part of this look. Soft tones on the eyes and a pretty nude lip complete this entire makeup look. We used Anastasia brow freeze, Ardell Wispies Lashes, and Cinema Secrets Foundation. For hair, we kept our natural curl and we put it into a nice light textured bun with some nice pieces hanging out making it look dainty with our beautiful statement crown. We used Unite 7 seconds leave in conditioner, Kevin Murphy Shimmer Shine, and Unite go365 hairspray.”
Playful & Floral Hair Pins
Get The Look: The modern romantic can’t go wrong by accessorizing her locks with floral hairpins. Go for dainty buds to elevate a twisted updo or wear a larger comb to pin back long flowing curls.
From the makeup artist, Carolyn F. Beauty: “I used MAC strobe cream to prep the skin for a radiant, hydrated base, then combined Glossier stretch concealer and Nars radiant creamy concealer for an even complexion. The stretch concealer acted more like a tinted moisturizer, adding a sheer wash of color to even out the skin. The Nars concealer has more concentrated pigment, so I mixed the two together where I needed added coverage. I used a mix of liquid blush from Surratt in a warm peach shade and added a touch of the Westman Atelier cream blush stick for a slightly more pink flush.
I used a deeper shade of the Glossier stretch concealer to define the shade and definition of our model’s face. A touch of Westman Atelier lit up highlight stick topped off the cheeks, adding a soft glow to the cheekbones. On the eyes, I smudged a MAC kohl pencil into the lash line, and warmed up the lid using a Dior backstage highlighter. This created a soft sheen to the eye, adding life and dimension to the center of the lid space. I finished off the eyes with a soft, wispy no lash-lash by Sweed Lashes. I finalized the look with a punchy, poppy lip that was created by mixing two cream blushes and a pigmented lipstick. This allowed me to not only control the color, but also the texture and sheen of the lipstick in general.”
From the hairstylist, Hayley Hall Hair: “I made a textured bun and added fishtail braids throughout the bun to add a little more texture to the look. Then I put in the statement pins that have flowers. I used a curling iron to curl everything for the texture, added texture spray, and finally, I added volumizing powder to give it more height. My favorite detail of this look is the fishtail braids throughout the bun. I used Dry Finish Texture Spray by Eleven.”
