Fall/Winter Bridal Makeup Trends

Contributed by Bebe Simone, Makeup Artist

Classic, Fresh Face and Colored Eyes are this Fall and Winter's top trends in makeup. Which is right for you? Well that all depends on your every day style...

You want to look like yourself on your wedding day, only a bit more “enhanced.". For example, if you don’t wear a lot of makeup, then you would probably want to stay away from smokey eyes and red lips. Be who you are. You want to be able to recognize yourself in the pictures!

The Classic

The Classic look will always be a “go to” look for brides for many reasons: it will never go out of style, it’s elegant, it’s beautiful; and it's the one most brides tend to lean towards as they look more like themselves - just a more “enhanced” version.

The Face

Soft, fresh faced and flawless skin is the way to go this season (but then again, when is it not?). When you have the flawless skin, why not show it off. The "no makeup" look is also a popular choice this season. That doesn't mean that you don't wear any makeup, it just means that no features really stand out. Contouring is nonexistent or very minimal and the overall look is subtle and soft.

The Eyes

Not comfortable with the "no makeup" look? Don't worry because you can still follow the current trend. Colored eye shadow in molten metal & earthy tones are also trending. Grunge your style? Do a grunge smoky eye. Big lashes are also a big hit so find a style that works for you and glue them on!

The most important thing to remember is to customize the look to your personal style ~ just because these are the current season trends, doesn’t mean you have to follow them. Pick one, pick none or pick them all, but whatever you decide…make it your own!
