Old School Beauty

Bridal Beauty Inspired By Taylor Swift

This pair is fast becoming my favourite celebrity couple! From frolicking by the pool on a blow-up swan to Calvin gushing about his pop star girlfriend in an interview with KISS FM UK, they are proving the critics wrong by going from strength to strength in their new relationship.

So I decided to give you a bit of bridal beauty inspiration. Get your look à la Taylor Swift with these tips.

Hair

Retro waves and lots of volume are essential to creating your Taylor inspired bridal hair. This feminine do is quick and easy to maintain throughout your special day. Be sure to pack some extra pins and a small can of hairspray in your emergency kit to keep you looking picture perfect. The Swifties would be proud!

Make Up

It’s all about the crimson lips and cat-flick eyeliner! Taylor totally rocks this look from everyday casual to sleek evening events. Bold red lips and smokey eyes will add a touch of Hollywood glamour to your nuptials. If you are worried about not being able to pull this off – opt for bright lips and simple eye make up or vice versa. I would also recommend building your confidence by wearing red lipstick around the house in the run-up to your wedding. The look will seem less dramatic and ‘new’ to you on the day. Plus you can practice eating like a pro to help avoid nasty lipstick stained teeth – major disaster territory for your wedding photos.

Take at look at my favorite video from Nikkie Tutorials that will help you nail Taylor’s Blank Space make up in five minutes.

Steal Her Style

The statuesque country sensation gets my top vote in the style stakes. Always keeping it simple while still managing to look chic and elegant. We have seen Taylor transform through the years from a tween princess in Love Story to an old school siren with the release of her hit album 1989.

When choosing your wedding gown be sure to highlight your best features. Taylor and her team always get it right by showcasing her best feature – those goddess like pins! If you have killer legs opt for a tea length wedding dress or a subtle slit up the side of your gown. Incorporate this bridal style in all areas from your hen to your engagement shoot by wearing sophisticated high-waist city shorts or skater skirts. Choosing to maximise your best feature is key to ensuring you feel comfortable and enjoy your celebrations. Take some classical vintage inspiration from these fab dresses as an evening option on your special day or wedding after party.
