5 prettiest ways your bridal bouquet can match your makeup
The Power of Pink
makeup For a more dramatic take, extend eyeshadow upwards and outwards to give your peepers a lifted look. A darker shade at the outer corners and a lighter one on the inner corners creates more dimension. Don’t forget to blend! Try: these pink makeup styles for Asian brides.
bouquet Bridal favourites in dreamy pastels, like baby pink peonies and peach stock, are made for romance. For a hint of playfulness, break up the soft colours with bright accents, like these fuchsia gerbera daisies.

Finish with an artfully disheveled ponytail for a youthful spin.
