Above all, the colour pink is making a huge come back in 2014, so don't be surprised if the modern bride will chose to highlight her lips with look-at-me berry or baby pink nuances. Fun and romantic, these lipstick colours were a massive trend on the spring 2014 catwalks, and they are very likely to land in many a wedding kiss this year. Complete the look with lovely, relaxed looking braids: either one simple braid or several smaller ones woven into an up-do, like a braid crown.

A pretty alternative bridal makeup would be a gentle wash of sheer shadows around the eyes, with the focus on lashes thanks to a length enhancer mascara and a thin, feline line of eyeliner to the outside corner. Skin here is kept fresh and glowing, and this style is best complemented with natural looking lips and a slicked-back low ponytail.
