3 Chic Wedding Beauty Ideas Straight From the Paris Runways
Paris Fashion Week isn't a place where you usually look for wearable hair and makeup. It's more a source of super-fancy, gawk-worthy stuff that only a model should ever attempt. That said, I think these three Spring 2013 runway looks could totally be interpreted by a style-savvy bride in a way that's so incredibly chic.
* A smoldering bronze eye, as seen at Gucci
I know this makeup would be a *bit* much for most brides, but picture a slightly toned-down version--just using individual lashes instead of that big black strip would instantly make this wearable for real life (you could also do a bit less "smoke" at the corner). A bronze eye would look just stunning for a black-tie evening wedding with a bride in an ornate beaded gown (see more photos in Megan's post about the show's makeup).

* A chic swirled bun cinched with an oversized pearl, as seen at Chanel
I'm so into the idea of individual pearls in a bride's hair (see an example here), and the charming little baubles Chanel models wore are another way to use this idea. Plus, I love this more elongated bun shape, which we also saw at Valentino -- something a little more interesting and of-the-moment than your standard ballerina bun. Wouldn't this bun look sweet with a short wedding dress, or a more casual summery one?

* Glamorous gilded eyes, as seen at Viktor & Rolf
This is a beautiful idea for someone who wants to do something slightly daring/memorable but keep it completely classy. I especially love how the silver and gold looks against this model's dark skin, while it's also enchanting in a much more subtle way against a lighter complexion. I envision this eye with a modern and sleek satin or silk gown.
