Stunner Thursday: Winter Wine Lip

Whether you are a Winter bride looking to make a dramatic statement with your wedding day look or are enjoying pre-wedding day events, the color trending this year for winter lips is wine. Glossy or matte, dark or light, red head (such as myself) or are darker skinned, there is a shade of wine that is sure flatter you. Today, I have a little collection of some of my favorite wine lip looks for you. Dare to be bold with your wedding day look!

Stunner Thursday: Winter Bridal Looks

Happy Thanksgiving all! Given that I am the turkey and gravy queen in the family, my commentary will be short and sweet. I’ve got some gorgeous winter bridal looks for you today. Just one note: think frosty instead of glittery. Glitter can often mimic blemishes in photos. So, talk to your photographer about your bridal look before the wedding and see what he or she recommends with regard to your winter wedding look and how it will appear on camera. I hope you all have a lovely day and thank you for reading!

Stunner Thursday: Fairy Bridal Style From Head to Toe

“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.” -Oberon, by William Shakespeare, Midsummer Night’s Dream

No other piece of literature or theatre quite captures the essense of the fairy real like Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream.” I have adored it since the first time I saw it performed as a middle schooler. From that moment on, I was fascinated by all things fairy and at nearly forty, I still am.

So, if you are looking for some Midsummer Night’s Dream wedding inspiration or are planning a fairy themed wedding, I have some gorgeous gowns, headpieces, makeup ideas, wings, and shoes to inspire you. Let your imagination run wild and I hope you find some ideas for your own fairy inspired wedding fete.

I’m also sure that you will love the Idea Gallery, which is chock full of makeup ideas from au naturale to major drama. I tend to go for a more dramatic look in purples to show off my green eyes:
