Bridal Beauty School: pretty boho

We've teamed up with make-up artist Hannah Martin at Bobbi Brown to show you how to create an ethereal boho look

Once you’ve chosen your wedding dress, the next step to completing your bridal look is choosing your hair and makeup. There are many factors that will contribute to your choice and it’s important that you spend time gathering makeup pictures that you like and considering what will make you feel most comfortable on the day.


One of the key elements to consider when deciding on your beauty look is, of course, your dress. If you’ve gone for a vintage style gown, it makes sense that you might want to incorporate some retro glamour into your make up. If you’ve opted for a traditional princess dress, then a classic makeup look could be just the thing.

Whatever dress you choose though, it’s important that you still look like you! So, if you always rock eyeliner, then add it to your look, or if your signature look is a red lip, find the perfect complimentary shade for your overall look.

In this post, we’re focussing on a boho bridal look. Makeup expert, Hannah Martin, was only too happy to take us through this fresh and natural look. Dewy skin and lips take the lead with this look, with paired back eyes finishing it perfectly.

Hannah can not only recommend the very best products for brides, but she also shows us the most effective techniques and tools to apply them with. With Hannah’s advice, you can’t go wrong.

When it comes to pairing a bridal hairstyle with your boho makeup, we recommend sticking to our model’s gorgeous, laidback and lose waves. If you’re looking to up the boho feels even more, we definitely think you should take a look through our 28 ways to wear flowers in your hair. Adding a flower crown or subtle floral details will give your look a dreamy and ethereal quality that will look super-contemporary but won’t date.  Perfect!
