Goddess-Inspired Wedding Beauty

January 3rd, 2012

Channel your inner goddess with luxurious, perfect wedding dresses that offer a touch of timeless beauty. These bridal dresses are meant to highlight your own natural attributes without overpowering everything that is special about you.


If you’re looking for classical style for your own wedding day look, you’ll love these subtle, refined choices. We’ve also put together some amazing suggestions for goddess-inspired accessories, hair and makeup.


Stunning, Fluid Lines Never Go Out Of Style

Simplicity can be so lovely… the white wedding dress shown above is a perfect example of the clean lines and fluid elegance found in the best goddess-inspired bridal gowns. This style needs little adornment – in fact, it may look better without a veil or a lot of jewelry. Pretty, high-quality bridal rings and simple wedding flowers will be the ideal complement to this classically feminine style.


Beauty And Makeup Tips


A soft, wavy hairstyle and rosy makeup will add glamor to your overall look. A lush, velvety cream blush and rich mauve or berry lip color may also be wonderful choices that suit goddess bridal dresses. Simple eye makeup that adds a little definition will also look great – consider a thin line of brown or charcoal liner, only on the top lash line – finish with a coat of lengthening mascara (Lancome’s Definicils mascara in basic black will be perfect).


Moisturize your whole body with a soothing product, such as Body Shop Body Butter, on the morning of your wedding day. Make sure the product has dried on your skin before you put on your delicate bridal dress.


One-Shouldered Styles Capture The Essence Of Goddess-Inspired Beauty

One-shouldered bridal gown references classical style that is straight out of Greek and Roman mythology! If you’re looking for drama that is still so appropriate, formal, and sophisticated, you’ll adore wearing the style shown above – its gorgeous full skirt and fitted bodice will help you achieve an enviable hourglass silhouette as you walk down the aisle.


Striking and very grown-up, this womanly design will give you goddess style that thrills your wedding guests and your groom-to-be!


Accessory Tips – You’ll need a good strapless bra to carry off this look. A long-line strapless bra will hold you in place and give you extra confidence. Wedding shoes in pure ivory satin will balance the strong impact of this wedding gown – unless you are very tall, you should go for 3-inch heels, perhaps in a strappy sandal design.


Draping And Pleating Are Classical And Lovely To Behold

Stunning draping and pleating are the key focal points of the goddess-inspired gown shown above. Artistry and painstaking craftsmanship meld with a touch of true sexiness – this bridal dress is definitely designed to flatter the female form.


Show off your curves and natural beauty by choosing this statuesque gown. Silky-soft, lustrous fabric will catch the light and add a glow to your skin, eyes, and hair. If you love fashionable wedding dresses with lush skirts and elegant draping, this gown could be the design you’ve been waiting for…


Beauty Tips


If you’re getting married in the hot summer months, add a touch of “sun” to your forehead, your cheeks, and the bridge of your nose – this is best achieved with a big, fluffy blush brush and a great, high-end bronzer – such as Guerlain’s Terracotta. The rest of your makeup should also be golden and warm – this look will work best if you have olive or yellow undertones.


Go for a 24 karat finish with shimmery eye shadows in gold, bronze, and ivory. Use the lightest shade to highlight the brow bone. Your lip color should be brick-red, soft taupe with golden gloss on top, or coral pink. Choose a warm, woodsy fragrance, such as Estee Lauder Sensuous, to channel your inner goddess.

Create Beautiful Bridal Hairstyles with Hot Tools!

December 26th, 2011

Finding it hard to stick to your wedding budget? Don’t stress— there is one area in which you can save a ton of money: DIY wedding makeup and hair! Ask a friend to do your hair and makeup, and have your bridesmaids help each other. This way, you can all have fun getting ready together, and you won’t have to spend hundreds of dollars (or more!) on your bridal party’s look! If you decide to go the DIY route, be sure to invest in quality tools in order to get the best results. If you are going for a sleek and shiny look, a flat iron would be your best bet. Be sure to get one that emits far infrared heat or has tourmaline plates, so that the heat damage done to your hair is minimal. If you are thinking about incorporating curls into your wedding-day ‘do, be sure to pick up a clip-less curling iron. They create soft, natural-looking curls, and won’t leave a crease at the top of your curls. A professional hair dryer is a good idea too, and will cut down on your styling time so you can spend less time worrying about your hair, and more time enjoying your day!





Hot Tools makes a great line of styling tools, from blowdryers to hot rollers, and everything in between. These affordable hair appliances provide great professional results, and last for years! The best part about buying your own tools is that you will have them to use after your wedding! You can pick up your own Hot Tools flat irons, curling irons, and other hair appliances at Image Beauty. They also carry tons of cosmetics and other affordable beauty supplies that can help you achieve your perfect wedding day look! Check them out!
