2017 is already kicking off to be an exciting one and although the height of wedding season isn’t quite here yet, I’ve suddenly felt the pace pick up, with lots of my brides-to-be getting booked in for their makeup trials. Here’s my pick of the hottest trends for bridal makeup this year. to give you all a bit of wedding inspo.
The Classic Blush
Pink is in! Which is great for those ladies wanting a more traditional bridal look. You’ve probably seen shades of blush splashed everywhere recently and it’s set to stay as a big trend for the bridal world in 2017 (hello gorgeous blush dresses!) And makeup is no different.
For a real nod towards the trend keep everything tonal – think the same tone for cheeks, lips and eyes to give a really fresh and delicate vibe. Team with dewy skin and a bushy brow, as seen at Sachin & Babi for the ultimate in ladylike chic. Not sure about pink everything? Take a look at Lela Rose for a simpler (but equally as gorgeous) version.
Glam & Golden
The key with this look is to highlight. Everything. Everywhere. Use a build of products to get the best results – if you really want to get that gorgeous glow then it’s all about layering a mixture of textures and products to give that all over gleam. Think liquids, powders, creams, glosses…and again, extend the look on to your eyelids to really pull it together and give that whimsical feel. I’m in love with the looks seen at Rime Arodaky.
Having a rose gold/copper themed wedding? everywhere and it’s here to stay!) then check out Theia Rose’s take on a rose gold eye. Perhaps a softer and more wearable look than full on gold goddess.
Natural Woody Tones
Matte brown eyeshadows are great for those wanting a little bit of oomph around the eye area without making the look too dramatic. I absolutely love the look seen at Caroline Herrera – makes for a perfect bridal look. If you want to up your fashion game even higher – team with a red lip. Anything with orange undertones and you’ll be right on track.
Of course, no bridal look is complete without gorgeous glowing skin so it’s important to start getting a routine in place – no matter which look you’re swaying towards (if any, you may have something else in mind!)
