Something Blue 
Princess Diana wore blue eyeliner for her royal wedding in 1981 and we love the look for 2020- it gives eyes a jolt of colour and sparkling brightness.

Glossy Girl 
Matte lips have had their day and the seriously glossed-up pout is back, with a slick patent-like finish. And in true ’80s spirit, it has to be pink.

Blushing Bride 
Make cheeks the standout of your bridal look with a more-is-more approach to a rosy glow. Skip bronzer and highlighter, and instead opt for a statement blush!

Curl Power 
The curly updo was a staple style for ’80s brides. In 2020, soft texture and loose pinning make this extra look suddenly fresh again.
