Before coming to your trial or when thinking about your wedding look, it’s always so helpful to find inspiration photos. If you don’t know where to search for the best look – we created a list of sources you should use!
1. Number one of all times is pinterest. You can always search for “wedding makeup”, “bridal makeup”, “natural makeup” for you makeup inspiration or you can even be more specific and clarify some details such as “makeup for green eyes”, “wedding look for dark complexion”, etc. When it comes for hair try to be a little more specific as well – “sleek updo”, “textured updo”, “hollywood waves” or “romantic wedding hairstyles”.
