An exciting day of your life is on the horizon and you’re likely super pumped about your looming nuptials. Gals who like to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to beauty will want to discover the bridal makeup trends for 2017, because it always helps to know your options.
Makeup can be tricky. Much like your bridal hair, you may want your wedding makeup to differ from your everyday makeup, with it being such a special occasion. But, depending on the look you’re going for, you might not want it to be too OTT either. It’s important to contemplate how your overall appearance will reflect your personality, as well as how it ties in with the theme, if you have one. For instance, if you’re having a gothic wedding, you’ll probably want darker makeup with metallics, rather than lighter shades.
However, if you’re having a creative block, here’s what’s trending in the world of bridal makeup for 2017, so you have a jumping-off point.
- Start With The Right Skin Care Routine For Your Skin
Beautiful skin is always a trend, you will need less makeup and be able to show your inner glow. It all starts with healthy looking skin.
- The Fresh Faced Look
Kristine Cruz, senior makeup artist at Antonio Prieto Salon says glowy skin and youthful eyebrows are trending makeup looks for brides this season. “Just think fresh face look. Minimalism is the key.”
- The Classic Cat Eye
“For something a little punchy,” says Cruz, “go with [a] classic cat eye look with lighter eyeshadow shades and liquid liner. Pair it up with semi matte lipstick with red/orange tones. Highlight for that added glow.” Cat eye makeup is timeless and will suit a variety of bridal styles and wedding themes.
- An Ethereal Eye Look
The ethereal bridal look is very trendy right now and can be seen in the use of floaty wedding gown fabrics like chiffon and tulle. If you desire a head-to-toe ethereal vibe, your makeup will need to stay in-keeping with the theme too. “To achieve the ethereal look on the eyes, skip the heavy eye lash extensions and go for the single eye lash extension for some length,” Cruz advises.
