Fall 09's new beauty trends give every bride showstopping options. From weather-proof chignons to sexy, scarlet lips, these five fall trends bring pretty polish to your big day.
Red she said
Pouty red lips are making big beauty news this fall. To choose the right shade of red, go for poppy-colored lipsticks if your skin has a yellow tinge to it. Cherry-hued colors are best for those brides with blue undertones to their skins.
For long-lasting kiss appeal, choose a rich, matte-textured product rather than a gloss. It will wear much better and stand up in even the longest receiving lines.
For brides headed to a destination wedding, consider wearing one of this season's hot, new coiled chignons. Star with an off-center part. Twist the sides back into a textured chignon. Accent the look with a few pins decorated with pearl and encrusted blossoms.
Edgier brides will love fall's modern spin on the classic pony tail. Wear it low and to one side. Decorate with pins or ribbons that accent your wedding party's key colors.
Intense pinks are blushing up a storm for Fall 09. To get that delicate, porcelain-doll flush swirl a plush brush over a rosy pink or sheer red shade. Tap the brush to remove excess product and then dab it onto the apples of the cheeks. Swirl and blend the color upwards along the cheekbones.
Play this intense hue off natural lips and neutral eyes finished with two coats of waterproof mascara.
Torn between long tresses and a classic bun? Fall's new up-down do lets you marry two hairstyles for one great look.
Tease the hair at the crown and lock into place with decorative pins or barrettes. Let the remaining hair fall loosely down the back. Finish with a super-flexible hairspray for a glossy, touchable finish.
