Bridesmaid Beauty Bootcamp: Skincare, Makeup, and Hair Tips

12 Jun 2024 | Beauty, Uncategorized

Whether you’re a seasoned beauty junkie or a ‘barely there’ makeup kind of girl, choosing your bridesmaid beauty look is a big deal. While it’s true that the wedding day revolves around the couple saying ‘I do’, the bridal party and groomsmen form part of the inner circle. This means that, as a bridesmaid, you will attract lots of attention on the big day.

So whether you’ve been chosen to be a bridesmaid, or are looking for inspiration for your bridal party’s beauty look, you’ve come to the right place. We’re going to be breaking down the essential things you need to know about bridesmaid beauty, from skincare to makeup and hair tips!

First Things First: Start with the skin

A healthy complexion is the ideal starting point for any beauty regimen. Skin that is well taken care of, hydrated and nourished will not only make your makeup sit better (if you choose to wear it), but it will also help you feel more confident from the inside out. Although there’s no quick route to achieving a natural glow, eating healthily, drinking plenty of water and exercising regularly will help you keep your skin healthy. 

Additionally, you should remember to use SPF in the months leading up to your wedding to avoid any hyperpigmentation issues. If you choose to experiment with skincare products, injectables or laser treatments, remember that it may take a few months to start noticing results. It’s never too early to start taking care of your skin to ensure that you’re looking your best on the day!

The Bridesmaid Beauty Look

While some bridesmaids may want to go for a full glam look, others might prefer a more natural aesthetic. However, it’s important to discuss makeup with the bride before the day. This will ensure that all bridesmaids have a similar look on the day, and that the makeup chosen matches the wedding’s overall theme.

Having said that, you can also experiment with different makeup looks to find out what you like and what you don’t like. Create a moodboard together with the bride and maid of honour to find a style that works for everyone. Even if the bride has booked a professional makeup artist for the day, you can still choose to avoid certain colours or products that you’re not comfortable with.

If possible, try out your exact makeup look before the big day to avoid any last minute problems!

What About the Hair?

Choosing hairstyles is one of the trickiest bridesmaid beauty decisions that you can make. Since every bridesmaid has different hair lengths and colours, it can be difficult to choose one hairstyle for everyone. Moreover, not all hairstyles will suit one’s face, personal style, and bridesmaid dress.

The first thing to keep in mind when choosing hairstyles for bridesmaids is that they must complement the bride. If the bride is going for an elegant updo, then a sleek half-up half-down look or a neat pulled back style might be the right choice. Alternatively, if the bride opts for a more natural look, then loose waves could be a better option.

Another thing to consider is that not all bridesmaids need to have the same hairstyle. Traditionally, bridesmaids would all have the same dresses and hairstyles, but it is becoming increasingly common to have different styles for each bridesmaid. This allows more flexibility with hairstyles, and gives bridesmaids the freedom to wear their hair in a way that makes them feel their best. 

Cut Back on Stress

One of the most important bridesmaid beauty tips is to cut down on stress. Stress can have a significant impact on our appearance and sense of wellbeing, so finding ways to unwind and keep calm ahead of the big day can give you an added boost of confidence.

Whether you schedule a weekly yoga class for your bridal party, or get a few extra hours of sleep when you can, feeling energised will help you achieve that inner glow.

Now that your bridesmaid beauty plan is ready, it’s time to tick off the rest of your wedding to-do-list!
