When you imagine your wedding day, how do visualize yourself? An artist can tell you what will look great on you and enhance your features. But choosing a wedding day look is not just about a professional opinion. It's more about understanding YOU and your vision. That's when the fun begins. A bride needs a look that flatters not only her features but more importantly, her personal style. Here is list of the most popular bridal looks. Which one are you?

Beach Bohemian Bride
Relaxed, Beachy, Romantic and Beautiful - She is a free spirit who looks as if she has been frolicking on a beach vacation the week before the wedding. Bohemian bride looks like she is not trying to hard, just naturally flawless, tan and glowing.

Daytime outdoor events

Makeup Ideas:
Smooth, Fresh look. Flawless skin. Bronzey cheeks. Lots of individual eyelash extensions to make eyes stand out but look natural. Lips soft pink or soft nude with a gloss.

Hair Ideas:
Beachy waves (Jessica Simpson style). Pull a few strands off your face and add
small flowers or orchids for a more bohemian look. Loose"effortless" updo is also an option. Waves are loose and not too coiffed. The idea here is "effortless" beauty. Very modern, fresh, relaxed and chill vibe.

Oscar Night Bride (aka Breakfast at Tiffany's Bride)
