Beauty A-Z: B - Bridal Styles for Every Day

Jan 15, 2015
Welcome to the second week of the Beauty A-Z link-up! The premise is simple: every Thursday, we share our favorite brands, tips, tricks, or tools that correspond with that week's letter. We'll make our way through the alphabet the next 26 weeks; hope you'll follow along and join in! Make some new friends, learn some new tricks, and discover new brands! Today we are on the letter B!

Last week I mentioned that I recently took a part time job as a Bridal Stylist. My wedding seems like eons ago (almost 7 years!) so it's been really fun to relive the exprience with soon to be brides. I've also learned that there are so many ways we can incorporate bridal styles into our every day looks. It's a great way to feel special even when it's not our big day!

//1// Bridal Nails

The horizontal silver stripes and healthy dose of sparkle makes this manicure wedding approved. The modern nature makes it great for every day wear.
  1. The stripes in this photo were created with silver striping tape, but you can get the same effect with paint and a striping brush like the Sally Hansen I Heart Nail Art Striper Brush in Silver.
  2. To get a clean look like this one using polish, use a striper brush or painters tape to stay steady — just remember to remove the tape immediately, so it doesn't stick to the nail and ruin your design
  3. For the nail color, you can use using Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in White On or try Sally Hansen Diamond Strength No Chip Nail Color in White Beaches for a softer look.

This classic side knot is perfect for the office, a date night, or the big day!

//3// Bridal Makeup

Natural looking bridal makeup can be recreated to make you feel special everyday.

Use the following YouTube video to recreate the look:


Go on... relive your big day or practice for it! Have fun!
