The Blushing Bride: Blusher Veils 101


Grace Kelly rocked one. Kate Middleton stunned in one. Now modern brides are lovin’ them — blushers are BACK and more beautiful than ever. These dainty designs were huge on the runway this year, adding mysterious, old-world charm to brides as they walk down the aisle.

If you’re planning to wear a blusher on the big day, we’ve got five no-fail tips to consider:

1. Bring the blusher to your hair and makeup trial. You’ll want to choose hair and makeup styles that work best with a blusher veil. For example, you’ll want to wear a matte lip stick instead of a lip gloss, especially if your nuptials are outside and a blusher blowing toward your face is a possibility.

2. Wear a blusher with an up- or half-up-do. Blushers generally look best with swept-back hair, allowing them to fall without competition. We suggest an elegant up-do, but if your heart is set on sweeping locks, try a Kate Middleton-inspired half-up-half-down style.

3. Bring a designated person with you to your hair trial. The hair dresser will teach this person how to flawlessly remove your veil for the reception and repair any imperfections.

4. Practice the unveiling. First you must decide when you want to ditch the blusher. When your dad gives you away? Right before the kiss?  Once you appoint the “unveiler,” practice, practice, practice. The last thing you want is for your veil to be awkwardly bunched on the top of your head. Practice a smooth unveiling and have your maid of honor on alert to tame any unruly tulle.

5. Snap some shots with the blusher on. A thin veil over the face is one of the most photogenic details of a wedding-day look. Take a peek below — they are stunning.

I'm in LOVE with her veil. Although I'm not sure if I want the over-the-face look or if I just want to tuck it underneath my updo
