How Can You Make Bridal Makeup Trends Work Best For You?

As the summer wedding season hots up, brides-to-be up and down the country will be putting their best face forward and planning their makeup look for the big day. It’s all part of the fun, but makeup trends seem to come and go in a flash, and it can be hard to know what’s hot and what’s not. Here’s a look at some of the best bridal makeup trends this year.

Structured brows

Your eyes will be the feature that will draw attention as you meet and greet guests, pose for pictures and of course return the adoring gaze of your intended. The eyebrow is key to framing your eyes and adding structure to your face, so it’s no wonder that brides pay them careful attention.

This year, brows are neither bushy or skinny, but well-groomed and structured. If you are not happy with the shape of your brows or feel that they could benefit from some extra fullness, you may want to consider microblading. This is a semi permanent cosmetic procedure that tattoos very fine and realistic lines to resemble eyebrow hairs. 

Makeup and hair rehearsals

With so many things going on in the run up to your wedding, the thought of adding in yet another time consuming task may not be too appealing. However, many brides are waking up to the advantages of a wedding hair and makeup rehearsal. This is a salon appointment with your chosen wedding stylist a few weeks before the big day.

Book an appointment reasonably early in the morning for the beautician to style your agreed wedding hair and makeup. Go about your usual business for the day to see how well the look holds up, and to get used to your glammed up self. This can help to bring to light any issues about the style or durability of your look before they become a problem.

It’s also a chance for you to get to know your stylists better, and discuss any changes or adjustments with them. It will help you to feel more comfortable and relaxed on the wedding day, as suddenly seeing yourself with unfamiliar hair, clothes and makeup can be a stressful or disconcerting experience just when you want to look happy and natural. 

Natural glamour

In the end, the best way to look good on your wedding day is to find a makeup style that complements your natural assets and brings out the best in your features, rather than slavishly following any trends. It’s fun to throw a nod to your favourite celebrity or trend, but in the end everyone will want to see you looking like you, maybe with some subtle help!

Consider your own personal tastes and preferences, and the type of dress and accessories you will be wearing on the big day. Pick one feature to glam up, such as bold lips, sculpted brows, shimmering cheekbones, or luscious lashes. This will help you feel special without feeling too estranged from your everyday self.
