The Blushing Bride Makeup And Hair Tips For The Big Day

September 27, 1992|By Suzin Boddiford

When all eyes are on you, allow your natural beauty to radiate through.

Up, up and away goes hair, with the volume on top of the head for an elegant look.

Hairstylist Ericka Riggs, who created the romantic style worn by our model, believes upswept styles are most flattering when they're loose and have some curl, either sculpted in or in loosely falling tendrils. If your hair is long and layered it can be neatly gathered up into a chignon for an elegant French twist. Shorter hair looks most fresh set and worn away from the face. Some who long for long locks to pile high are turning to the newest trend in falls.

When hair is swept off the face, makeup must be just right: too-soft makeup looks washed out, too-strong becomes clownish. Concentrate on a deeper lip color; steer away from frosty pinks toward muted reds and rose tones. Swipe a tip from the top makeup artists and open up the eye with contoured brows and natural-looking false lashes. Cheeks should be treated with a sheer wash of color. You'll be glad you remembered your waterproof mascara when the band strikes up "Daddy's Little Girl."
