Glamorous bridal makeup and hairstyles | Gucio Photography | 100 Layer Cake

Sometimes the focus doesn’t always have to be on the dress, right? Beautiful hair and makeup with a little bit of accessorizing can make for a glamorous bride that no one will want to take their eyes off. These pretty ladies are proof.

This styled shoot was done in collaboration with makeup artist Emily Cheng and photographer Gucio Photography and focused on showcasing four different distinct looks for a bride to consider for the big day. There are some really pretty options here ladies. Take a peek…

The Classic Bride

This is the perfect example of putting a twist on a classic look. The cat-eye liner is always a favorite amongst brides and by using color you can make it your own. Here we’ve used a turquoise blue but other colors like purples and greys can do wonders in bringing out your eye color. Finish this look with clean, sharp red lips and full brows. The hair has a classic retro wave to it yet it is still movable and soft. Instead of crystals or flowers a feather clip with gold accents add the perfect finishing touch.

The Boho Bride

Playing with soft peaches and pinks can be the perfect solution for those that either don’t often wear makeup or prefer subtle colors. Peaches and pinks can be paired to create an ethereal yet polished look ideal for the big day.

Complete the look with a romantic side updo and feminine accessories. Here we’ve simply used lace and string pearls as a head piece and pinned them straight into the hair.

The Edgy Bride

For those that love makeup and can’t get enough here are a few ways to have some fun. Deep lipstick and gem textured eyes will be sure to have heads turning. A common grey shadow is spiced up with gemmed lashes and sparkled shadow. Focus on just a corner or section of the eyes so it doesn’t become over the top. A matte lip color will compliment the dazzling eyes.

A sleek top bun adorned with large topaz crystals and ribbons tie in with the makeup perfectly. If you can’t find the perfect hair accessory start looking into necklaces and bracelets where you can easily manipulate and pin into the hair.

The Trendy Bride

You want to do something bold and being the classic bride just isn’t for you. Hair and makeup can be the easiest way for you to show off your style. The hair incorporates the popular trend of twists while being completely unique. Twists can be worked in so many ways which makes it fun to experiment with. For added textures try braids and think beyond your basic braid and incorporate styles from the runway. Balance off this statement hairstyle with soft colors on the face. Lilac on the eyes with full lashes and soft peachy lips/cheeks work together to create perfect symmetry.

Some great hairstyles here, I especially like the 'hair down' styles. Brides often like to play it safe and wear their hair up, but I think long flowing hair looks fabulous! ;)

Pretty looks! I love the Boho Bride the best, she looked positively glowing :) The classic bride doesn't really strike me as a traditional look but it's sleek and I love it, especially the cobalt lids! What a pop of color!

Kristy on Apr 16, 2013

AMAZING. Love. love. love. but I wouldn't expect anything less than fabulous from such a talented team: Gucio, Flower Factory and Emily Cheng

Caprice Miranda on Apr 16, 2013

yay! love the hairstyle, tying it up really looks classy and elegant, i would prefer tying it down specially for destination weddings like in a beach, i wouldn't want my hair to look all messed up or slap on my face everytime the wind blows :)

For one of the most important days of your life, make sure that you choose a wedding makeup look that you will feel comfortable in for the whole day. If you are the type of person that doesn’t use much makeup at all, then choosing a wedding makeup look with your bridal makeup artist that is truly glamorous and dramatic may not be comfortable for you. Conversely, if you are the type of bride that goes natural when you usually wear a lot of makeup, it may make you feel a little out of your element. Wedding Venues

Great photos of unique and beautiful hairstyles. A great tip, is to get your hair trial done on the day of your photography engagement session. This is a day you will want to look your best, as you and future hubs get your engemagment photos done.

Love classic bride's dress! Where is it from??

MakeupbyMerry on Apr 21, 2013

Awesome hair styles. Specially that Boho bride is looking nice and its totally a new idea for me because the use of lace was very perfect in that hair style.

Shawn on Apr 22, 2013

These makeup looks and hairstyles are gorgeous! I especially love the touch of blue eyeliner on the first bride, and the wine-red lips on the second. I absolutely love this spring's makeup trends, and can't wait for my Jane iredale shipment to arrive (I buy it here: because I have a red lipstick similar to this one on its way! Thanks for sharing these beautiful pics!

When you are traveling, try to pack almost everything in 1 carry-on bag. Airlines have began charging for factors that they used to consist of in the price of your ticket, such as checked bags, snacks and entertainment. There are two airlines that do not charge you to verify bags, but they frequently have extended waits at their baggage areas. You ll save time and cash if you can keep every thing in a single bag.

A few observations: 1) Photographies looks amazing; 2) The most wonderful haistyle - the woman in the photo above; 3) The bouquet with pink flowers looks like from a fairy tale :)
