I started googling FALL 2017 Bridal trends — I must be honest. It was scary. Runway trends are very different than the “Real Life” look.
These were some of my favorite, realistic trends I found on THEKNOT.COM
Bold brows are making a comeback thanks to supermodel Cara Delevingne.
Tip for the Taking: To really make your eyes pop, gently fill in the brows to get the shape you want and lightly apply a powder over it. It’s the perfect way to enhance your eyes while adding depth and dimension to your bridal look.
Lip gloss gets a bad rep, but if done right, it can give your lips a beautiful luminous look. Plus, it perfectly pairs with natural-looking makeup. My go to Bridal shades are: Laura Mercier “Blush”, Mac “Spice” and Mac “Cultured”
Tip for the Taking: Prep lips with a sugar scrub to remove any dead skin, then apply your favorite lipstick or lip stain, followed by a thin layer of lip gloss in a similar shade to add another layer of dimension. Skip glosses with sparkle or metallic sheen to avoid a more juvenile look.
Brown Eye Makeup
In keeping with the natural theme, consider matte brown for your eye shadow and liner. The combo enhances the eyes without looking too in-your-face. I have so many favorite shadows –here a just a few: Urban Decay Naked I Palette, Mac’s Amber Times 9 Palette, Girlactik “Skin” and Dior’s Rosy Tan.
Tip for the Taking: Stay away from brown mascara. Trust us: It will never compare with the boost your lashes get from a solid black.
A common wedding makeup request is to give skin a dewy look, and this season is no different. To achieve the glowy, not shiny, face–makeup artists use a pearly highlighter stick or powder. My favorites are: Jane Iredale’s “Complete”, Hourglass “Luminous Light” & Mac’s “Pearl”
Tip for the Taking: You’ll get the most shimmer by using a hint of highlighting makeup on the cheek bones, the corner of the inner eye and just below your brows.
For your lips, bring out your natural color with soft pinks and corals that work well with your skin tone. My all time fav pink colors are: Mac’s “Creme Cup”, Mac’s “Angel” & Arbonne’s “Primrose”.
