Our editors recently interviewed more than 55 makeup artists and hairstylists from across the country to find out which celebrity styles brides are requesting for their wedding day. We received a lot of varied responses by region (Southern gals love Carrie Underwood's curls; California brides are digging Hilary Duff's beachy waves), but, across the board, the red carpet "winners" were clear: Eva Longoria's soft, romantic updos and Kim Kardashian's dramatic-yet-flawless makeup.
"Eva's updos have a lot of volume and height," explains Chicago hairstylist Livia Caporale. "It's a sexy and glamorous hairstyle that looks effortless and wedding-appropriate." Kim's look is all about smoky eyes paired with flawless skin. "I often get requests for Kim Kardashian's dramatic eyes, but I tone it down a bit by using lighter colors like browns and grays so it still has that smoky tone but doesn't look too heavy," says Donna Spinelli of Amazing Face and Luscious Locks in Montclair, NJ.
