Top advice for the perfect wedding HOT TOPIC NATURAL BEAUTY I need some inspiration for my bridal make-up; what looks will be on trend next year? Bridal make-up trends set for 2022 focuses on all things ‘natural’, including glowy, healthy, radiant and flawless skin. Next year will be all about letting your natural beauty shine, you’ll want to enhance your skin and not conceal it. Boho chic and fairytale-style looks are going to be popular with soft hints of colour on the eyes. Black liner, either smoked out or kept defined with a delicate flick brings a gorgeous focus to your eyes. Statement-nude lips are the perfect partner to natural make-up looks and will feature strongly throughout next year. Are you looking for a bolder style? Bold lip shades are going to be a popular choice in 2022, including the iconic red lip. Next year is set to see a record number of couples tying the knot and I’m so looking forward to creating some fantastic bridal looks. Claire Milburn | Claire Alexandra Hair And Makeup #SQUADGOALS Our winter wedding is coming up and I’m still looking for gifts for my bridesmaids. What would you suggest? Although many couples opt for a wedding in the summer months, winter nuptials can be a truly magical experience. As the weather gets cooler, we start to think about snuggling up under blankets, lighting candles and gathering with friends and family for comfort food and laughter. Tying the knot in winter can embrace those same concepts and immerse your guests in a winter wonderland. Here at Bellaboosgifts, our range of all-year gifts for bridesmaids can easily be adapted to match the time of the year. For a winter wedding, why not opt for frosted cookies in a range of shapes and designs or fully customisable silk robes for the squad to wear while getting ready? Another option is white personalised baubles that bridesmaids can hang on the Christmas tree each year as a lovely reminder of the day. We stock all these products as well as our sparkling range of bespoke flutes and glasses that are perfect for sipping mulled wine at wedding receptions. We can tailor any gifts and favours to match your colour scheme, be it red and green for a Christmas-themed event to icy blues and white for a winter-wonderland wedding.
