Best Bridal Beauty Looks

One reason we get excited for award season? It leaves us brimming with wedding-worthy hair and makeup ideas. Unsurprisingly, then, our three favorite looks were a SAG-Awards sweep. From Emma Stone’s chic little ponytail to Keira Knightley’s artfully messy waves and Rosamund Pike’s perfect red pout, here’s your weekly dose of celebrity beauty inspiration.

Rosamund Pike
With her blonde, reflective locks and classic blue-based red lipstick, Rosamund looks every inch the Hitchcock heroine — a great inspiration for brides-to-be, since that look is utterly flattering and timeless. (Also because garnering comparisons to actresses like Grace Kelly and Tippi Hedren is never a bad thing.) But since you don’t want to seem like you literally stepped out of the 1950s, change it up with your hair. Instead of perfectly rolled curls, try waves like Rosamund’s, and finish the look with full, groomed brows — it’s a subtle way to keep it fresh and youthful.

Keira Knightley: We hear that Keira’s half-up, half-down wavy hairstyle is one of the most popular bridal hairstyles. So how to get her bohemian-esque texture? Prep wet hair with a volumizing mousse, like TIGI Bed Head Totally Baked Volumizing & Prepping Hair Meringue. Rough dry it with your hands and a blow dryer, and then curl sections of hair. Run your fingers through the curls, rumple it up with a bit of dry shampoo, and there you have it — perfectly imperfect bed head.

Emma Stone: How versatile could a shoulder-grazing bob like Emma’s possibly be? Let’s see. For the Golden Globes, she went for glossy, undone waves, and now, for the SAG Awards, a polished, side-parted ponytail. (We can’t wait to see how she’ll style it for the Oscars.) It was the perfect hairstyle to accompany her Dior Haute Couture tuxedo gown, and a great option for modern, minimalist brides. Should you worry about looking too casual, you can always throw on a red lip and black liquid eyeliner. You know, just like Emma did.

4 Things to Remember Before Buying Your Save-the-Dates

Tips for Selecting Save the Dates

The options are almost endless when it comes to your wedding stationery, but the first step in this exciting process is choosing your save-the-dates. With so many paper options, color combos and text treatments, finding the perfect big-day announcement can be overwhelming. To help make this process as easy as possible, we reached out to the experts on everything pretty and paper: New York City stationery team, Regas Studio.

1. It’ never too early to start shopping for save-the-dates.
You can reach out to a stationer as soon as you’ve finalized your venue and date. If you’re working with a custom stationer, the design alone will take about a month to create. You also have to factor in time for revisions and production, which can vary depending on the complexity of the project.

2. You don’t have to know everything.
Haven’t settled on your wedding’s color palette or theme? That’s not a big deal! This doesn’t have to affect your save-the-dates. Chances are, your wedding will incorporate some aspects of who you are as a couple so look to memories, landmarks, or special stories as a starting point.

3. Think outside the box.
Save-the-dates are a great opportunity to include something fun and informal that represents you as a couple. Think: an illustrated map of places you’ve been together or a timeline of your love story. For example, one couple met in their apartment elevator, so their save-the-dates incorporated a copy of a note that the groom left in the bride’s mailbox asking her on their first date.

4. Budget upfront.
Ask your stationer for a proposal that includes the save-the-date and invitation suite so you can allocate your paper budget accordingly. There are a lot of factors that go into the cost of stationery such as paper type, printing methods and decorative accents. Your stationer should guide you every step of the way in understanding these options in order to ensure that you get beautiful stationery at a price you feel comfortable with.

Grown-Up Glitter: How to Make Sparkle Look Subtle for Your Bachelorette Party

Glitter Makeup

Sparkly makeup isn’t too much for a big night out with your bridesmaids — as long as you know how to apply it. The key to adding glitter without looking overwhelming? Keep the shine to one feature: while a touch of sparkle on your eyes looks amazing in photos, glittery eyes and shimmer lips together is too much. With the right technique, though, it’s easy to pull off a little extra sparkle. Follow makeup artist Mally’s tips for the easiest ways to make sparkle look subtle for your bachelorette party.

Glitter eye makeup won’t look costumey if you keep it at your lash line, Mally says. And to keep it from getting sticky, mix glitter with a cream highlighter like Benefit Watt’s Up! ($30, available at Sephora). After applying your regular makeup (hint: glitter looks amazing with a soft smoky or pastel eye), dab cream highlighter on your lash line and at the inner corner of your eye. Then, dip a small brush into your glitter and press it into the cream highlighter; it should adhere easily. If you have leftover glitter under your eyes, Mally suggests, wrap a piece of adhesive tape around your finger, sticky side out, and use it to pick up any stray sparkles. Or, avoid the glitter pot entirely and use sparkly eyeliner, like Stila Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner ($22, available at Sephora).

We may all be guilty of a few shimmer bronzer crimes back in high school, but that doesn’t mean you can’t foray back into sparkly-cheeks territory ever again. To keep it subtle for your party, layer highlighter over matte bronzer — that way, you can control the amount of shine you get. After you apply bronzer around the perimeter of your face and lightly across the apples of your cheeks, your forehead, and your chin, add highlighter, like Mally Beauty Lit from Within Blush and Highlighter ($45, available at QVC), to your cheekbones, the tip of your nose, and the Cupid’s Bow of your lip. Finally, smile and add a tiny bit of highlighter to the apples of your cheeks and the tops of your eyebrows to boost your color.

Just like with eyes and cheeks, it’s all about layering, Mally says. Ditch frosted or sparkly lipstick for matte, and layer a little bit of shimmer gloss over it. Or, if you only want a tiny bit of shimmer, dab it into the center of your bottom lip to make your smile stand out in photos.

Um, What? Sean Penn Is Calling His Upcoming Union to Charlize Theron His First Marriage

Is Sean Penn suffering from memory loss? Despite two previous divorces, Penn explains that he considers his upcoming marriage to Charlize Theron to be his first in his March 2015 Esquire UK cover story.

“You say I’ve been married twice before, but I’ve been married under circumstances where I was less informed than I am today,” he says of his past unions in the interview. “So I wouldn’t even consider it a third marriage, I’d consider it a first marriage on its own terms if I got married again. I mean, I like the tradition. A friend of mine wrote a line, ‘Without tradition, new things die.’ And I don’t want new things to die.”

And while he’s quick to admit that he views his upcoming wedding as his first, he is still close to his former flames. “I’m very friendly with my first ex-wife,” he said of his relationship with Madonna. “I would say that I’m on extremely good terms with the children I share with my second ex-wife.”

The reason he’s not as close to his more recent ex-wife, Robin Wright, who herself is currently engaged, is because, he explains, no divorce is easy. “Initially, in a divorce, you kick and bite about the other person,” he said about the split. “But finally you’re looking at your failures to that person, to a marriage, to a friendship, to yourself during that time as well. Because no matter what the other person was or wasn’t, for better and for worse, it really has so little to do with the growth you need to find better circumstances. Almost exclusively it has to do with your own stuff.”

Wise words, Penn! Hopefully third (or first?) time’s the charm.

Stacking is a known styling trick for everyday jewelry (arm party, anyone?), but what about when it comes to your wedding band? A trend is growing among newlyweds of three rings — another wedding band on top of the usual engagement ring and band. Love the look, but have trouble layering your sweater, let alone your diamonds? Scan some of our favorites and take our tips straight to the jeweler, whether you are buying wedding bands or looking to add an anniversary band or push present to the mix.

1. Tiffany & Co.
A smooth metal band and a twin band spotted with diamonds make for the perfect polished mix. Stack these around a simple diamond engagement ring for a look that’s both sophisticated and artsy. “Elsa Peretti” Wedding Band Ring in Platinum, $1,250, and Diamonds, $1,950, Tiffany & Co.

2. Anna Sheffield
The crescent bands are the perfect compliment to this vintage inspired engagement ring. Bonus stylish points have to be given for mixing metals. Rosette Trilogy, $10,700, Anna Sheffield

3 Bridal Beauty Ideas Inspired by Spring 2015 Couture Fashion Week

Beauty Looks From Spring 2015 Paris Fashion Week

While we swooned over gorgeous gown after gorgeous gown at the recent couture shows, we were also totally inspired by the hair and makeup. Here, three chic ways to change up your wedding-day beauty look, courtesy of our favorite runways.

1. Pastel palettes at Giorgio Armani Privé
Another soft alternative to traditional black eyeliner? Baby blue, as seen at Armani Privé. (It’s also a great way to inject a little color into an all-white ensemble.) To make it bridal ready, lightly line your top lid in the shade, extend it below the outer corners of your eyes, and stop in the middle of your lower rim. For definition, add a little gold eyeliner just above the crease, and place a touch of white eyeliner to the inner corners of your eyes. Finish it off with peach blush and a sheer, berry lip tint, which will add a bit of warmth to your complexion.

2. Neutral makeup at Christian Dior
When you’re wearing a formal gown that basically qualifies as a piece of art, sometimes the best way to balance it is with subdued makeup. In lieu of black eyeliner and mascara, for example, apply brown shadow above and beneath your eyes like we saw at the Dior show. (You’ll be surprised at how something so subtle can make them stand out — we hear that J.Crew often uses this trick on their models.) Wear it with dusty rose blush and a matching, glossy lipstick, and you’re set. Should you want to take it up a notch somewhere, do it with your hair. Keep it sleek in the front, but go all out in the back. Whether it’s an intricate French braided bun, or a modern, structural ponytail like the ones at Dior, this is where you can have some fun.

3. Face veils at Giambattista Valli
Once upon a time, these veils may have run the risk of looking a tad costume-y, but Giambattista Valli managed to make them decidedly fresh and playful. (If you need more proof of their comeback, see Chanel.) The trick to getting a veil right is pairing it with every day hair and makeup. Translation: Instead of pairing your face veil with an elaborate updo or a coiled, Kate-Middleton-esque half-up hairstyle, go for a simple, low ponytail. Makeup wise, focus on accentuating your eyebrows and eyes (think filled-in brows and grey, shimmery eye shadow), since they’ll be more difficult to see behind that chic little mask.

Ring Pillow Alternatives: Cute Signs

Instead of a pair of faux rings on a satin pillow, give your littlest attendant a more creative and fun accessory to carry down the aisle. We love the idea of asking your ring bearer to carry a sweet sign announcing your arrival — it’s guaranteed to delight your guests. Here are a few of our favorite ring-bearer signs:

Here Comes Your Girl (above): For more rustic wedding settings, paint your sign using a large swatch of burlap.

Here She Comes: Another great idea for a wedding held at a farm or barn is to repurpose a piece of reclaimed wood as a simple ring bearer sign.

Paper Flags: This couple’s ring bearers carried flags as they made their way down the aisle, announcing the bride’s arrival.

Oh Yes, Here She Comes: This sweet sign is trimmed with lace and decorated with a little baby’s breath crown.

Here Comes the Bride: A sign like this is an easy DIY project and will build anticipating for your ceremony arrival.

5 Things Real MILs Have Said That Will Make You Cringe

Mother in Law Wants You to Call Her Mom

If you think you’ve got a monster-in-law, the things these MILs have said may make you thank your lucky stars!

1. “I got pregnant soon after our wedding — within about six months — so by our one-year anniversary party, I was well on my way to having our first baby,” recalls one bride. “Anyway, at our anniversary party, my mother-in-law thought it was appropriate to tell everyone there that I was much larger — as in, fatter — than she had been six months in, and launched a discussion about how I should try to eat less!”

2. “My future MIL has always loved my fiancé’s ex,” says one bride-to-be. “I know they still talk, because I can see their interactions on Facebook and such. But I was still pretty shocked when I accidentally walked in on a conversation between her and my fiancé, with her asking him, ‘Why can’t you just try to make things with [your ex] work? You’d be so much better off.'”

3. “I almost wish I could say that my MIL says something to me,” says another bride. “But the truth is, she hates me so much that she barely recognizes my presence. If I ask her a question, she won’t answer it. And if she does, she’ll turn to my husband and respond to him as if he’s the one who asked it!”

4. “My MIL doesn’t mince words,” says a recent newlywed. “She once caught me using a handheld mirror to check to see if I had anything in my teeth, and she laughed and told me that I was narcissistic! Um, no, I just don’t want spinach in my teeth!”

5. “On our wedding day, I remember saying to my MIL, ‘Isn’t this the most amazing day?'” recalls one bride. “And she replied, ‘If you say so.'”
