That envied flawless look that everyone desires. "Lash lifts can help you get natural big lashes without the need for extensions or mascara, says experts at Skinworks, in their article 'Fall Makeup Trends To Make Your Lash Lift Pop.'

Twirling in love! The bride chose an absolutely stunning silk wedding dress with long lace sleeves. As you can see, along the sides there were curved lace opening in the waistline to add a feminine and fashionable style.

Her simple, yet elegant bouquet is the perfect accent to her stunning dress. According to the Knot, "Fresh picked, wild looking bouquets are still reigning in the land of florals. In their recent article, titled '7 Hot Wedding Trends For the Fall,' "Finishing Touches, such as small vines of ivy, elongate the shape of traditionally arranged bouquets, giving them a whimsical appeal, while unexpected add-ins, like thistle and small leafy twigs, capture the spirit of the outdoors."

We are loving the half up-do styles on the bride and her bridesmaids. This bumped twisted half up-do (far left image) is a stylish look perfect for saying 'I Do's.' Another great way to add texture is to add in a braid (far right image). According to The Right Hair Styles, half up-do's are a very popular and trending on Brides and their Bridal Party.

We love this natural soft eye color look with a POP of glam using a winged eye liner as the final touch. A very dramatic yet elegant look!
