Beautiful Traditions – Wondering what your something old, new, borrowed and blue will be? We’ve got some beauty idea!

Borrowed
Star Style
When it comes to looking glam, why not do as the glitterati do? Here are three of our favourite red-carpet beauty trends that we love for your wedding day.

RED LIPS
Seen on: Amanda Seyfried
Why we love them: They are a glamour girl classic! Put a fresh spin on this look by skipping the matte lipstick and trying a raspberry-colored lip shine instead. 
Try: Philosophy Red Licorice, $16.

BRONZED SKIN
Seen on: Amy Adams
Why we love it: A dusting on the cheeks, chin and forehead makes skin luminous. To get the glow, without the glitter, use a matte powder—we guarantee you will look fresh from St. Tropez. 
Try: Cargo Bronzer in Medium Matte, $26.

SMOKY EYES
Seen on: Penelope Cruz
Why we love them: Nothing makes your peepers pop like a good smudge of dark liner paired with sultry, shimmering shadows in complementary shades. 
Try: Du Wop Rose Eyes Palette, $36.

Old
Classic Fragrances
Trying to find your wedding-day scent? A great place to start is by sniffing out a few oldies but goodies; juices renowned as favourites by generations of stylish brides. Here are five of the best classics: Chanel No. 5 Eau Première ($150 for 150 ml). Lancôme Trésor Eau de Parfum ($93 for 50 ml). Guerlain Shalimar Eau de Toilette ($78 for 50 ml). Nina Ricci L’Air du Temps Eau de Toilette ($94 for 100 ml). Calvin Klein Eternity Eau de Parfum ($89 for100 ml).

New
Skin Saviours
Dermalogica’s ChromaWhite TRx line is designed to brighten uneven skin tones. Our pick: Dermalogica ChromaWhite TRx Extreme C, $111 (dermalogica.com). Another facial wonder: Intraceuticals Oxygen Infusion Treatment. We tried it at Toronto’s DLK on Avenue and the results were absolutely stunning.

Blue
Nail Polish
We love the idea of a pretty pedicure with a polish like Rimmel’s Underground Play Fast in Chill ($5) tucked inside your shoes. More great blues: OPI Russian Navy ($11) and Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Ocean View ($3).
