Many brides spend hours researching, planning and perfecting their wedding day beauty look through the help of stylists, hairdressers, makeup artists, fashion mags and internet websites. As 2018 continues, we welcome several new and charming bridal hair and beauty trends. Read on for our take on the looks you’re likely to see this wedding season.
Soft waves are set to be a popular choice for the bride’s hair this year. Think unfettered, loose waves with a natural shine, not overloaded with lots of products. Many brides will be opting for the laid back side-part rather than a middle parting.
Trading Polished buns for low-key up-dos
Last year, tightly twisted, uber-glossy buns were a popular choice among brides. This year, brides are trading in their perfected updos for a more relaxed look. Loose up dos are the popular choice for 2018.
Long, full lashes have always be a coveted look by the modern bride and they are a big plus for 2018 brides. There are a number of ways to fake the look for your own wedding. Lash extensions are one of the most requested beauty treatments among brides. Take a look at the cost and portfolios of local salons and find a makeup artist that suits you.
You can also experiment with individual and strip lashes on the day. Try out different lashes beforehand and see which style suits you best. Individual lashes can look very natural when used with mascara, achieving a full-lash look without looking overdone.
The matte lipstick look has been popular for the past few years, but this season’s runways have featured models with glossed lips. This new trend will have many brides reaching for the lipgloss on their wedding day.
Gloss is a great choice for a fresh, young look and can help make your lips look bigger if they are naturally smaller. There are a number of different hues, some subtle and others bright. You can also experiment using glosses with several different finishes: opting for sparkle, shimmer or a clear finish.
The full face
Beyond the glossy lips and long lashes, French Wedding Style explores more of the overall look recently featured on the catwalks, noting that red lips and a subtle highlight are a key trend for the season:
“There were some subtle, beautiful red stained lips at Badgley Mischka when added with a ‘clean’ face – very classy and timeless. I also really liked the use of rose gold tones over the whole face. For someone who does not wear a lot of make up or dislikes lots of colours this is perfect. Use a similar colour on lids, cheeks and lips for a pretty look. Try Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze and Blush in Light to Medium for the perfect glow.”
