Bridal Beauty School: vintage

We've teamed up with make-up artist Hannah Martin at Bobbi Brown to show you how to create a gorgeous vintage look.

One of our favourite things about weddings is the opportunity to put together a winning bridal look. From the dress to the accessories, and the hair and makeup, each element is specially selected for the day and makes for a look quite unlike any other you’ve worn before.


Your wedding day is the day to live out your sartorial and beauty dreams. If you’ve always dreamed of a princess dress, you can finally wear one and if you’ve always fancied having your hair and makeup done professionally but never had the chance, this is the time!

Many of us look to previous generations and eras for inspiration and with such a wealth of beautiful looks and ideas, it’s no wonder many brides choose a vintage look for their big day. From the glamorous accessories to the stunning makeup and hair styling, going vintage is always a good idea.

To help brides craving old-school glamour for their big day, Hannah Martin has kindly created this fabulous look. As a makeup master, with a bulging clients list, Hannah knows exactly how to craft beautiful, photogenic makeup looks that wow time and time again.

For this look, Hannah takes us step by step through each element, showing us the products she loves and how to get the very best out of them. By the time you’re done watching you should feel more than ready to whip out your makeup brushes and give it a go!

If you’re thinking of investing in some new makeup for the day (we totally think you should, you’re only a bride once after all!), then play close attention to the products Hannah uses here and feel free to get an in-person demo from the on-counter team – they’ll be only too happy to help a bride look her best!
