Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day…

Because of this, make-up and hair play an important role.

Bona’s Beauty Editor, Grace Mantjiu shows you make-up ideas to try on your special day and the hairstyles to pair them with.

Here are 4 bridal make-up ideas and hairstyles to inspire you for your big day in 2018!

1. The classic red lip

Give the natural look a break and try something more daring, such as the edgy cut-crease eye or bold red lips. Red lips look beautiful on everyone; just find the right shade to suit your skin tone. Add a cat-eye liner and you are good to go.

Hair tip: A top knot always looks classy on a bride. But, change things up by adding a braided hairpiece to look trendy.

2. The perfect cut crease

The cut crease is the eye make-up trend to try this season. This eyeshadow technique makes your eyes look bigger and brighter. Pair it with a rosy pink lipstick and fake eyelashes for a dramatic effect.

Hair tip: Curly hair together with a flower band make a perfect accessory to this look. It matched with the edgy bold eye make-up.

3. Natural eyes

Forget matching your natural eye make-up with a nude lipstick and add colour! Brown and gold eyes go with just about any bold lip colour.

Hair tip: The bob works well with this look. If you don’t have a shot wig, use your long one. Just tuck the hair inside and secure it with bobby pins.

4. Hello, nude lips

Nude lips look subtle and romantic. Pair them with a colour smoky eye instead of natural eye make-up to give your face an instant lift.

Hair tip: Wear your hair up, away from your face to show the stunning eye and lip combo. Add a hairpiece to your fringe – curl it to the back for a Mohawk with a twist.
