Date May 24, 2023
From the moment a bride-to-be first slips on an engagement ring, there’s much work to be done. A date must be locked in, wedding venues must be secured, a dream dress has to be acquired, and so on and so forth. This includes, of course, planning your hair and makeup. In an effort to lighten your load, why not turn to TikTok to guide the way? After all, you already use the platform to pick up useful beauty tips and tricks. Why not use it to source bridal beauty inspo?
Ahead, we’ve rounded up six TikTok accounts at the intersection of #beautytok and #weddingtok to inspire your bridal beauty moment, from ethereal hair to elegant makeup this season.
For the perfectionist planner
Are you even on #weddingtok if you’re not following @theluxebride ? From celebrity wedding breakdowns to current wedding trends, Toronto-based wedding content creator Gabrielle Meloff has a TikTok feed full of inspiration for you to get lost in. As a recent TikTok bride, Meloff has curated playlists on her profile detailing her own wedding planning process — and most importantly, her best beauty advice. Want wedding nail inspo? Need an idea of how to plan out all your beauty appointments and treatments? Let @theluxebride be your guide.
For beautiful bridal hair
If there’s ever a day you want to go all out on your hair, it’s your wedding day. From intricate updos to curls laced with flowers and ornate headpieces, @jaykaybraidsandbridal creates bridal hairstyles fit for a fairytale. Not only do we get hundreds of breathtaking final results to save to our mood boards, but this account also takes us behind the scenes of creating these looks with in-depth tutorials that detail how each style is achieved. With her talent for creating ethereal hairstyles any bride would dream of, it’s no wonder her videos go viral with views in the millions.
For gorgeous transformations
You may recognize this viral video of a bride flaunting her greys in all their glory on her wedding day, but allow us to introduce the MUA and hairstylist responsible for her look, Tia Codrington. As a destination makeup artist, Codrington takes her nearly 200,000 followers on a journey around the globe with each post while she documents her bridal beauty transformations. On both TikTok and Instagram, there’s no shortage of inspiration for melanated brides in search of dark-skin-approved glam.
For glowing glamour
For bright, high-glam makeup that glows from within, we’re totally hooked on @makeupbyjayzaunz ‘s tutorials. Any bride-to-be will love her beauty breakdowns that unpack the inspiration behind each bride’s look and how it was achieved. What’s more, there’s no gatekeeping here! Whether it’s skincare prep or products used for glam, this MUA is always open to sharing how she works her magic by listing products in her videos, in the comments, and on her website.
For more binge-worthy hair content
If you’re on #hairtok, you may already be familiar with this emerging genre of consulting style videos that gives viewers a front-row seat to hair appointments from start to finish. (I, for one, could binge these transformations all day.) Pro hairstylist Chantelle Maree is giving us the best of both worlds by taking that trend and turning it bridal. On her TikTok, we get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into bride-to-be hair consultations that are sure to inspire your own trip to the salon.
For soft glam inspo and pro tips
Through posting soft glam bridal makeup tutorials and beauty tips, Canadian makeup artist @selenamup has racked up a TikTok following of nearly half a million. Her dreamy looks ooze grace and elegance, so it’s not hard to see why her work is constantly going viral. If you’re planning on tackling your own wedding day glam, Selena also offers a virtual bridal masterclass that covers all the brushes, products, and techniques needed to recreate a classic soft and smokey wedding day look.
