Tresses Tuesday: Shine through the Silver Screen - Wedding Hair and Makeup Inspiration from Famous Movies

Getting married may feel like you’ve finally achieved your fairy tale ending just like in the movies. So, why not complete the similarities by using them as inspiration for your bridal look?

Here are some of my favorite movie brides and their hair and makeup looks for the big day:

Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw (Sex and the City, 2008)
SJP, being the fashion-forward female that she is, is probably the only movie bride who can pull off a bird on the head as a fashionable hair garment. Matching this already daring look with equally bold, red lips makes the bridal hair and makeup combo a total statement.

Amanda Seyfried as Sophie Sheridan (Mamma Mia, 2008)
Amanda gave the whole mermaid hair look a vibe that’s far less aquatic but still totally romantic. The wavy long locks pulled back with a floral veil on top gives the effortless look a more pulled-together feel. If you’re having an outdoor wedding ceremony, give this look a try using a 2-inch curling wand plus salt spray to complement the sunny location.  

Kate Hudson as Olivia Lerner (Bride Wars, 2009)
Kate’s makeup for this movie should make brides reconsider the often-shunned purple or pink-toned eyeshadow look. With the right shade and blending techniques, you’ll avoid looking like a peacock on your wedding day. Complete the look by matching it with the colours of your bouquet.

Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan (Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1, 2011)
Bella is saying her “I do” to a vampire, so the goth makeup may not come as a surprise. The dark and smoky eyeshadow look made the bride’s eye pop as it complements her pale skin tone. If you’re wearing a backless dress, try taking inspiration from her hairstyle — scooped up in a loose, low bun.

Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, 2013)

This is probably my most favorite not only because I love Jennifer Lawrence to pieces, but also because I like all things flashy. Haha. Jennifer’s character in this blockbuster movie franchise is one feisty young lady, and her wedding hair and makeup look reflects that personality. Her silver-leafed wet look hair paired with smoky eyes with a bold winged effect and jewels placed under the lower lashline is perfect for daring brides.

Note: I’m starting a simple series here in my blog where I talk about different beauty issues and other women-related topics such as makeup, hair, fashion, skincare, books, and even my favourite TV series (Game of Thrones!) and movies with a different theme every day. So, yeah. Hopefully, I can keep it up. Watch out for tomorrow’s Wardrobe Wednesday: Looking Your Best for a Fun Pool Party. Thanks!
