This week, we decided to talk about how hats fit in with accessorising and make-up!
This can be a rather daunting discussion if you haven’t worn many hats before, but there are some tips that could be helpful. So, we thought we could dedicate this week’s post for them! These are all tips of course; we are sure you look incredible however you choose to wear your hat!
Our first tip is to try and avoid wearing big earrings with a hat. Big earrings often distract and clash with a hat, especially a big hat! A hat is usually the biggest accessory with an outfit, and as coco Chanel says: “always take one item off before leaving the house”. Having two big accessories often look too clunky and take away the elegant feel.
Tip number two is not to wear eye make-up that will clash with the colour of the hat. We at Bee Smith studios love colour! Sadly though, often times when a hat is a bold colour, and so is the wearers eyeshadow it can look a little too busy. The perfect colour is a good colour match to the hat or a light shimmery shade. This way the hat is nicely complimented!
Tip number three is to not wear too much of any make-up in general. This is a make-up tip that people often follow in day to day life. However, when wearing a hat, it is nice to have a simple and glowy look. Too much blush or lipstick will take away from the elegant and simple look.
The next tip is regarding any hat that also has a veil. If you wear eyelashes that are too big or too thick, it may get caught in the veil! This will be annoying for the wearer as they will have to constantly adjust the way it sits on their face. A veil is a lovely type of hat, don’t let big eyelashes ruin them!
Our final tip is to go to the hairdresser with your hat before a big event! The stylist will know what will look good and how to create the look with your hair. The goes for any hat! They are happy for you to take it with you and can find a style that you like with the hat. This is perfect for a big event that you want to look just right for!
Thanks so much for reading this week’s blog! We hope you enjoyed it and don’t forget; you are beautiful regardless of these tips!
