The 1960s’ bridal look offers a classic vibe, one that is natural, but pristine, inspired by Audrey Hepburn…
Make-up: An overall matte finish is required for this look, with full coverage. Add cream-gold or cream-silver under the eye from the inside corner, and a light brown to blend into the crease of the lid to create drama to this classic and sultry look. Subtle liner is applied halfway along the under eye, but not inside. A thick line of black kohl is added to the top lid. Lashes that are fine and separate in style are applied to open up the eyes even more. Eyebrows are defined in-keeping with this retro look. Matte nude lips are a must and brides can match nail colour with lip colour.
Hair: A beehive style is iconic to this era, but this doesn’t have to be very high. Leave a front section of hair out, and set the back section from the crown in curlers. You can create a beehive or chignon, before clipping the front sections to the side, framing the face. Use shine spray and hairspray during styling to fix the look and to ensure a sleek finish. This elegant style elongates the neck and works with 1960s style high or square necklines.
