Vintage-Inspired Wedding Ideas

Fashion & Beauty

Pay tribute to the past by adding vintage elements to your wedding. Dress your bridal party in soft romantic shades like pale pink or yellow and choose grey suits and vintage accessories like poorboy caps for the groomsmen. For your vintage look, stick to tradition in an understated lace dress and flowing cathedral veil. Collect odds and ends like classic literature and vintage buttons to add to your decor and top it all off with a classic car as your wedding day transportation.

BBs have actually been on the market for a while—they are wildly popular in Asia—but have now started making headlines in North America where you may have noticed an explosion happening at the cosmetic counter. Known as “Blemish Balm,” “Beauty Balm,” or “Beauty Benefit” cream (depending on the manufacturer), these lightweight liquid formulas are to be applied after moisturizer, before foundation or powder. The benefits are multi-purpose: hydration, lightening and brightening. They also even out skin tone and provide SPF protection. Here are five fantastic BBs to check out.
