Forget about the ‘classic’ bridal look! Here are the 5 bridal beauty trends that will be everywhere in 2017…
Brows were big news in 2016, and we’re expecting to see even more bold brow looks this year, thanks to the rise of treatments like microblading and HD brows. If you’re wishing for thicker, bushier brows the more natural way on your wedding day, now’s the time to start growing them out! Once you’ve achieved your desired thickness, have them shaped two days before your wedding to avoid residual redness, and then brush them through with a brow gel on the big day.
Rose gold eyes
Rose gold was THE colour of 2016, so it’s no surprise that it was super popular for makeup looks too. Rose gold is actually surprisingly wearable when it comes to wedding makeup, as it can be used in a softly smokey eye to give it a warm metallic shimmer. We particularly recommend it for blue and green eyes, as the copper tones of the eyeshadow will make their colour pop.
If you’ve been on Instagram lately, then you’ll know that matte is where it’s at when it comes to lipstick. We’re not saying that you should go full Kylie Jenner on your wedding day, but these popular matte liquid lipsticks are ideal for long-lasting lip colour that can withstand wedding cake, champagne and plenty of kisses! Choosing a bright matte red or pink can also give you a bold, modern look on the big day.
It seems like no colour is off-limits when it comes to hair this season, and we’re expecting that plenty of brides will throw the ‘classic’ look to the winds in favour of more on-trend pastel shades for their celebrations. Replacing 2016’s silver, the hot colour for 2017 looks to be ‘blorange’ – which is prettier than it sounds! A mix of red and orange (aka blood orange), this shade actually translates to a soft peach colour that is flattering to most skin tones, but looks especially good on warmer complexions.
If you’re the kind of girl who owns 20 different highlighters, then you’ll be excited to see this trend on the list. Glowy skin is having a real moment, and it makes sense that such a naturally pretty trend would be perfect for your wedding day. The key to getting this right is to blend, blend blend – you don’t want a thick stripe of shimmer in your wedding photos! If you have naturally oily skin, we recommend mixing liquid illuminator into your primer before applying foundation, to give you a ‘lit-from-within’ glow without looking greasy or sweaty. Finish up with an illuminating powder for a beautiful, brightened look.
