The Bridal Beauty Looks You Have To See

As much fun as we have peeping all of the bonkers hair and makeup looks backstage at NYFW, we always breathe a sigh of relief (and feel majorly inspired) when we get to check out the flat-out pretty beauty looks at Bridal Fashion Week. The fall '14 shows didn't disappoint, with romantic braids, rosy eyeshadow, and bold lip looks that would make any lady (engaged or otherwise) totally swoon.
While bridal looks can sometimes veer into either over-the-top crazy (or, worse, super-boring and vanilla) territory, the looks at these shows found the perfect balance of innovation and flattery — which is exactly what every bride should be looking for. Click through to find 17 gorgeous ways to make your wedding day hair and makeup completely unforgettable — and totally unique.
