The dress choice determines the perfect hair and makeup – this applies for the wedding guest, too. At most modern weddings, guests can choose between an evening or cocktail dress or a chic trouser suit. To be on the safe side, you're always better off with an elegant evening dress. Remember, though, that less is usually more. Steer clear of overly voluminous skirts and too much lace or tulle. For your colour palette, you can never go wrong with pastel tones and cheerful summer hues. Black or red are sometimes less appropriate. At weddings, the colour white is an abnsolute no-go -- it's reserved for the bride!
Nothing is worse than ruining a near-perfect outfit with the wrong handbag. Don't choose bags that are too large or (perish the thought) a rucksack! Instead, opt for a small handbag or clutch. These always look elegant and unobtrusive. Pack only the essentials (don't forget your tissues!) and colour-coordinate the bag with your dress -- you'll look even more sophisticated if you coordinate it with your shoes.
Never show up to a wedding with unkempt hair. Even if you 'only' want to wear your hair down, you can give it a touch of elegance with a simple trick: curl the ends of your hair to create subtle, loose waves that are timelessly beautiful – not to mention quick and easy. To achieve this look, use your curling iron on only the lower third of your hair. Don't forget to use a heat protectant before the curling iron. Keep the finished style in place and add shine by working a dab of EXCLUSIVE SEVEN Argan Oil into the tips.
'Fashion braids' of all kinds are back on-trend. Especially in summer, braids -- even with a flower accent -- are an easy, playful, elegant touch that are always an eyecatcher.
Less is more: words to live by, especially for wedding guests. Avoid too much glitter or shimmer, heavy blush or exaggerated smoky eyes. Try to keep it subtle. Coordinate your eyeshadow with the colour of your dress or jewellery, and finish off the look with eyeliner and mascara. As a rule of thumb, the more natural, the better. Quick tip: To keep your skin looking fresh, use a primer before applying makeup. Primer evens out your skin tone, protects your skin and keeps your makeup budge-proof all night long. Most of the attention may be on our face today, but we still want to let our real skin shine through. Achieve this effect with Skin Tight Body Lotion by PRTTY PEAUSHUN. It smooths unevenness, tightens skin and creates a beautiful glow.
