No matter your bridal style, we all want to look our best on our wedding day. Whether you are looking for a subtle, natural look or a more defined style, these beauty trends will enhance your beauty and keep you feeling your best on your wedding day.
False lashes have been a beauty trend for decades, but the hassle of putting them on and keeping them on has always been a concern for brides. Luckily, the trend of getting eyelash extensions has gained popularity in recent years. The idea is simple: a professional places individual semi-permanent lashes to your existing lashes, with the length and amount totally up to you, and voila! You won’t even need to wear mascara! These would be perfect to have from your pre-bridal parties through your honeymoon.
When my wedding makeup artist suggested I try airbrush makeup on my big day, I was hesitant. I was very much on the side of looking more natural and although I wear makeup regularly, the idea of airbrushing scared me. But, I trusted her and I am so happy I did! The airbrushed look kept my skin looking flawless all night and it never smeared or disappeared like my normal foundation does. It was also extremely lightweight, so I felt like I was wearing no makeup at all.
Full eyebrows are in and if you’re a 90’s kid like me, you probably succumbed to the relentless plucking we did to keep them thin and minimal, making your eyebrows not so full. That’s where eyebrow extensions come in. Similar to eyelash extensions, a professional will place brow hairs to your existing hairs. You can choose how full you’d like them and the result is a natural looking, eye-enhancing look that’s perfect for your wedding day. Just be careful: you may get addicted!
Lip Plumpers and Masks
Lip masks have become a bridal go-to for many brides. These 15-minutes masks keep your lips smooth and lush and are especially great for brides who suffer from cracked or dry lips. Plumpers have a bit more depth to them. Some brides opt for lip fillers, which keep your lips plump for months, while other brides decide to go a bit simpler, using lip plumpers instead. These look and feel like lipstick, but give your lips that sought-after plump-ness brides hope for.
Balayage is a hair highlighting process that allows for a more natural look. Instead of foils, your stylist simply paints on color to your hair. The result is a sun-kissed look that lightens without feeling fake. Plus, balayage is so natural looking that when your hair begins to grow, it still looks great, meaning less maintenance and time in the salon chair and more time for planning that wedding!
