At last week’s Bridal Fashion Week, Vera Wang sent some very pink wedding dresses down the runway. While it was a bold move, blush pink wedding gowns have been increasing in popularity for quite some time. This romantic shade is flattering and oh-so-romantic, which makes it a style we can totally get behind. Here are some of our favorite blush brides to inspire your big day look!

The Weirdest Origin Stories We’ve Heard in the Beauty World

In the summer of 1853, a hot tempered chef was manning the kitchen at a chic resort. A dinner guest found the chef’s French fries too thick for his liking and sent the plate back to the kitchen. In an effort to one up the persnickety customer, the chef sliced the potatoes paper-thin. And eureka! America’s favorite salty, snack—duh! the potato chip—was born. 

Unexpected discovery of a seriously great thing, right? Like our favorite crunchy fix, these four beauty products have surprising (and totally awesome!) beginnings.

I’ve been a huge Halle Berry fan since her scene-stealing turn in 1999’s Bulworth. So when I heard via The National Enquirer (yes, I am proudly subscribe to their emails) that the Oscar-winner recently tied the knot, I immediately launched into amateur sleuth mode. Translation: I trolled celebrity gossip sites for hours. 

My digging unearthed some juicy tidbits about the nuptials, but not the one thing I was really looking for: a picture of the radiant bride in her wedding dress. Drats! While I await more details, I opted to try and recreate the leading lady’s signature look for myself.

The Longest Lasting Blush You’ll Ever Own

image

There are people that are fair and then there are people that are extra super fair. I fall into the latter camp, which means that blush is a non-negotiable part of my beauty routine. If I leave the house in the morning and forget to add a little color to my cheeks, I’ll have at least two people ask me, “Meredith, are you feeling alright?” The answer is yes, I feel totally fine, I just happen to be exceptionally pale, thankyouverymuch

1. Mismatched Foundation

One thing you should always keep in mind: Your face and neck should be the same color. To ensure that your foundation matches your natural skin color, try smoothing it out on your jawline first, not your hand. Also, examine the accuracy of color in various lighting inside your house and out. This can make a huge difference and you could be surprised by how your go-to foundation looks in natural light.

2. Full-On Smoky Eye

Wearing layers of charcoal from lashline to brow can be a dangerous office look, particularly because dark colors surrounding your eyes can make you appear tired. If you want to look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed on Monday morning, try a one-shade lid, like the basic colors included in Urban Decay’s Naked Palette.
