April 30, 2021 4 min read

Is your wedding day coming up? Do you have a hair and makeup plan? Some like to wing it the day of, others plan meticulously weeks and up to months before the big day. Whatever your style, we've put together some hair and makeup inspo for your special day. But before we get into what your hair and makeup will look like, let's talk about what you can do now to prep your hair and skin right now for gorgeous results later.

Daily vitamins with biotin are said to fuel your hair with healthy nutrients. Use hair masks to help nourish your hair and scalp. It's also a good idea to avoid heat styling in the months leading up to your day. As for prepping your face for your wedding makeup, it's important to establish a regimen as soon as possible. Define a skincare routine and stick to it. If you need help with this, visit your dermatologist. Get professional facials from an aesthetician (but be sure you don't over do it). Keep your skin hydrated by moisturizing daily and drinking lots of water.You can also follow this guide for starting your wedding beauty regimen from Brides.com.

Now that we've covered the prep, let's get into the fun stuff. Deciding on how you want to wear your hair and makeup can be challenging. It's a big decision!The best tip we can give you is to make sure you do you.If you've never been super into makeup, you may want to stay away from a full-on glam look. Never wear your hair up? You may choose to stay away from a fancy updo. Be sure you feel like yourself and are comfortable.

Here are some looks for helping you decide on your wedding hair and makeup:

              Hair

 

Wedding day hairstyles in updo

Put It Up

Try a simple updo to keep your hair out of your face throughout the day. Updos are elegant, look so chic in photos, and keep you cool in the heat.

Wedding Hair with Braid

Braid It

Braids are a classic wedding day hairstyle, and for good reason. They are the perfect combination of wearing your hair both up and down. Try adding flowers or greenery to your style to make it pop.

Simple hair ideas for your wedding day

Keep It Simple

Don't feel like you have to do an extravagant hairstyle on your wedding day. The most important thing is that you feel beautiful. If keeping your hair down makes you feel confident, go for it. You can go with smooth curls, pinned curls, loose waves, or straight and silky.Add flowers, barettes, crowns, or hair pins for a romantic touch.


              Makeup

 

Natural makeup ideas for your wedding day

Go Natural

Some of us don't like a heavy makeup look, so wear your makeup how you like it. Use neutral-colored eyeshadows with a flick of winged liner to add a subtle pop to your eyes. Take it easy on the contouring with your highlighter and bronzer. Finish off your look with a soft color on the lip.

Glowing Glam Wedding Makeup

Glow Up With Glam

A dewey, glowy makeup look is such a gorgeous option for your wedding day. Add highlighter on your cheekbones, cupids bow, and tip of your nose to look like a glowing goddess. Bronzer and blush on the cheeks will help define your cheekbones. For the eyes, try a cut-crease and voluminous eyelash.

 

Smokey Eye wedding day makeup looks

Stick With Smokey

A smokey eye is a wedding day staple. Blended dark shades of eyeshadow work together to create a dramatic and breathtaking look. Fill in your brows. Finish off the look by adding a dark lip to create a moody ambiance or a light glossy lip to tone it down a bit.

Good luck deciding on your wedding day hair and makeup looks! We hope this fills you with inspiration for your special day.
