Want the right beauty look for your vintage inspired wedding but don’t know where to begin? Well you have come to the right wedding blog! Here are some wedding ideas to help you achieve the vintage glam look for your big day!


Makeup: The reoccurring theme when it comes to vintage glam makeup is soft eyes, dramatic eyelashes, and bold lips! A classic smokey eye of browns and creams is a great way to have your eyes looking soft, yet glamorous! Black eyeliner and mascara will be your best friends when it comes to making those doe eyes pop. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, sport some false eyelashes! Soft, glowing cheeks can be accomplished by using a peach colored blush and nothing says vintage glam better than red lipstick!


Hair: You can have a lot of fun when it comes to your hair and its accessories! If you choose to wear your hair down, polished wavy tresses are an option. Having your hair out not part of your vision? You can opt for a slicked back, finger waved chignon that you can dress up with pearl pins or a feathered hair piece on the side. Pin curls can also give your hairstyle a vintage feel! No matter how you wear your hair, the classic vintage accessory – the birdcage veil – can be incorporated.


Jewelry: When it comes to your wedding jewelry, look for pieces that are classic and timeless. Pearl drop earrings or crystal chandeliers can add glam to your vintage look. You can go for a simple pearl necklace for a subdued look or take your style up a notch with a multi-strand version. Whichever type of jewelry you choose, always make sure that it stays in line with the dress your wearing!
