Grace Meets Kelli

Grace Kelly’s Engagement Photo

Grace Kelly was a woman with style, class and.. well…grace. She was always elegant and opted for a simple and understated style that’s certainly worth emulating, even today.

Kelli’s classic bone structure, blond up-swept hair and pearl necklace made her a perfect choice for a Grace Kelly inspired bride.

Learn how to get this look in 3 easy steps!

  1. Less is more – when it comes to make up, choose flattering shades (neutral colors are a safe choice) and apply with a light touch. For Kelli, I used mineral eyeshadows in shades of gray and white with a touch of glimmery beige on the lid.  Soft pinks on cheeks and lips add color without being too overdone. I opted for cluster lashes over a strip lash to keep with the natural look.  Using a mineral foundation, which will cover imperfections but still allow your own skin to show through, is best.
  2. Keep hair soft – think up swept, waves, looser hair styles with pretty accessories. Nothing harsh or too pulled back.
  3. Speaking of accessories – Grace Kelly was known for wearing a single strand of pearls. Try updating this look with the Charlotte Statement Necklace from Stella & Dot. I can picture this necklace with a cardigan and jeans, just as easy as I can a beautiful wedding gown. 

Stay tuned for another Hollywood inspired bride!
