Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge chose a relatively natural look for her wedding day, with the emphasis on her cheeks and brows. Use a pomade for a pronounced brow, or even a pencil to fill in any of those gaps or sparse hairs.

Ivanka Trump

For more of a sun-kissed look, Ivanka Trump chose to play-up her features with peach and coppery tones. An illuminator will create the illusion of light on the face, especially when applied onto the cheekbones, brow bone, nose and chin.

Hilary Duff

If you’re planning to wear your hair up or slicked-back, why not try some of Hilary Duff’s makeup for her nuptials to Mike Comrie. Make sure to blend the foundation onto your ears, neck, and chest so there are no white patches in your wedding photos!

5 Celebrity Bridal Makeup Looks

Kim Kardashian

For Kim’s wedding to Kris Humphries, she chose a stunning look with an emphasis on glossy lips and a contoured cheek. Sculpt the face by using a shade slightly darker than your natural skin-tone, then make sure to blend, blend, blend!

Poppy Delevingne

Older sister Poppy went for a sultry look for her summer wedding in London. For the eyelids, use a light reflecting eyeshadow to emphasise green or blue eyes. You can also lightly dust it over your cheekbones for an instant highlighting shade.

Classic Jewellery Options For Brides

Finding accessories which are understated to match your wedding dress are often few and far between. For most brides, delicate earrings, minimal bracelets, and fine jewellery are the best options since they don’t take the focus away from the main piece, which is of course the wedding dress.

We have picked out a few favourite styles which are perfect for the bride who wants to add a finishing touch to her entire look.

Hair clips

Take your hair to the next level with some amazing hair accessories for your wedding day. Clips are perfect if you choose to style your hair up or down, and bring a classic look to any ensemble.

Jewellery Options For Brides

Pearls

Stick to basic pearls if you want to keep your look fairly minimal, and can only choose one piece of jewellery to wear. Not only are pearls an investment, but you can also wear them after your wedding has passed. They never go out of style!

Jewellery Options For Brides

Tear-drop earrings

For a statement piece of jewellery, you can’t go past a pair of tear-drop earrings. These are almost an essential if you choose to wear your hair in a classic updo. They became the main focus of your accessories, and can even be worn by women without pierced ears.

Jewellery Options For Brides

Headband

An embellished headband is one of the easiest ways to transform your look, and keep hair neat and tidy throughout the wedding! This is also an amazing option for women with a front fringe, since it will keep it in place – regardless of windy weather.

Jewellery Options For Brides

Dainty necklaces

If your wedding dress is strapless, then a dainty necklace or choker is the best way to accentuate your décolletage. Stick to something simple such as an infinity sign or your initials, since it’s a nice way to tie everything together.

Although sterling silver is most popular, rose gold and gold pieces are also trendy at the moment, and available at almost every single budget.

Jewellery Options For Brides

Ear cuff

Another popular option of the last few years are classic ear cuffs. Australian designer Ryan Storer creates a number of bespoke pieces which are suitable for both brides and the maid of honour. To highlight this look, keep hair parted onto one side, and clip back to emphasise the ear cuff at all times.

Elle Macpherson Marries Billionaire Jeffrey Soffer

Elle Macpherson has tied the knot with her billionaire fiance, Jeffrey Soffer in Fiji.

Macpherson, 49, and Soffer, 44, married in front of family and friends on the island. They had been engaged since March.

The couple dated for two years before splitting in March 2012. But the model rushed to his side following a horrific helicopter crash in the Bahamas in November last year, which killed his friend and saw Soffer undergo surgery for a fractured vertebrae.

The real estate developer is based in Miami, and Macpherson is believed to be preparing to relocate there from London.

Macpherson was previously married to fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon from 1986 to 1989.

She dated French financier Arpad Busson for 10 years from 1995 to 2005 and has two sons with him: Arpad Flynn, 15, and Aurelius Cy, 10.

Jennifer Aniston sets the record straight on rumours her wedding with Justin Theroux has been postponed.

“We have yet to set any date,” Aniston, 44, told Associated Press while promoting her latest film We’re the Millers, in New York.

“There have been no canceled weddings. There have been no postponed weddings. There have been no arguments about where to get married. Just clearing all that up.”

Aniston and Theroux, 41, have been engaged since last August, and insists they are just waiting for the right time .

“We just want to do it when it’s perfect, and we’re not rushed, and no one is rushing from a job or rushing to a job.

“And, you know, we already feel married.”
