Many brides choose a classic wedding beauty look, but that doesn't mean they want something boring or stuffy. If you're after a traditional style that still feels fresh and bright, turn to one of our favorite celebrities: Carrie Underwood. The singer is the queen of timeless beauty, and her signature style is worthy of any walk down the aisle.
While it's definitely a throwback, Underwood's hair and makeup from the American Idol finale in 2011 is amazing bridal inspiration. With the help of Facetime Beauty, we recreated the look, and we're showing you how to master it yourself.
For major Underwood vibes, we gave our model a chic, side-swept chignon. To make the updo even more bridal, we added a tiara from Gabriella New York, not unlike the one the singer wore on her own big day. The end result has a princess feel, and would work for any formal celebration.
We paired the hairstyle with shimmering bronze shadow, as well as dark eyeliner. We made the lip a tad darker than Underwood's by using a reddish-brown color. The shade pops a bit more than the star's pink gloss—it is your wedding, after all! To mimic Underwood's amazing lashes, we also stuck on some statement-making falsies, which really frame the eye.
See the look come together in the video above. For more bridal beauty inspired by celebrities' signature styles, check out the rest of our First Look series.
