It’s not just your choice of bridal accessories that’ll define your big day look. Your bridal beauty has to be just as meticulously planned. We’ll let the freelance artist behind AnniceMakeup explain why:
“Have you thought about the fact that the wedding dress is just an extension of the bride’s face? You have put so much effort into planning your perfect dress, and you want to feel 100% fabulous and confident! As women, we know what a let-down it can be if our make-up is not what we you’ve hoped for, or applied in a rush. Your wedding make-up is just as important as your dress!”
As well as completing your bridal look for that very special occasion, your wedding makeup will give you the confidence you need to do your big day your way. With spring just around the corner, there’s a host of new bridal makeup looks to experiment with. Read on to discover the dreamiest bridal beauty looks for the season ahead…
Fresh-faced and beautiful
The no-makeup makeup look is back, and it’s bigger than ever this spring. As the season of renewal, rocking this fresh-faced trend on your wedding day is rather fitting but don’t be deceived. Creating a no-makeup makeup look in minutes isn’t always possible.
For an utterly flawless appearance, this look has to start with the right skincare regime. Prep should therefore begin months before. In the run-up to your wedding date, prioritise skincare by following a daily regime that keeps your complexion healthy and glowing.
Choose skincare products that are designed for your skin type, wear SPF daily, and tackle specific skincare problems head-on to build the perfect foundation for your no-makeup makeup products.
A new neon glow
A white wedding gown is a perfect look for an exciting pop of colour, and there’s no better palette to explore this spring than the very on-trend fluorescents.
These neon shades add drama to an otherwise minimalistic bridal look, with eye-popping pinks, bright blues and gleaming greens – or a combination of all for brave brides! – ensuring a vivid finish. Just don’t forget to pack some eye shadow in your bridal survival kit to top up your colour as and when you need to throughout your wedding day.
If you’re not quite ready for neon brights, the pastel makeup trend is also big news this spring. Pastels are perfect for more pared-back but just as trendy bridal beauty looks, especially when paired with more neutral shades.
Glossed up and gorgeous
Lip gloss featured heavily on the catwalk last season, and the early noughties resurgence continues into spring.
Silky lips are a simple route to big day glamour, and all it takes is a quick slick of gloss. When choosing the perfect lip gloss product to complete your glazed look, opt for a non-sticky, moisturising formula that’s high sheen and lip-smackingly comfortable.
The classic red lip
Who said that bridal beauty looks have to be barely there? A crimson lip offers a trend-worthy yet timeless touch that complements the vintage, classic, and modern wedding looks perfectly. Whether you’re going bright or vampy, the right shade and product will leave you looking and feeling fabulous.
