Let’s be honest…sometimes runway makeup makes me second guess just how dark it was when they attempted to get ready for the show. However, the past Bridal Fashion Week 2016 left me satisfied as I greeted beautiful winter bridal makeup trends with each passing model. While there were some outliers (white face paint, really?!), the designers were spot on when pairing their gorgeous gowns with the perfect winter wedding makeup look. Without further ado, I am pleased to introduce you to the top winter wedding makeup trends presented by this years talented wedding designers during Bridal Fashion Week 2016.
I don’t think we will ever outgrow the use of metallics in wedding makeup fashion! Finding the perfect shimmery textured eye for your wedding makeup look is the easy part…the hard part will be getting everyone’s eyes off you. Using metallics makes it simple to apply makeup on your big day without looking like you put all of Sephora on your face. A little shimmer goes a long way.
All Things Ombre
Just when you think ombre is going out of style, there it is again creeping into current beauty trends. It used to be nail polish, then it was hair color, and now it’s popped up in wedding makeup looks. Ever tried an ombre lip? Don’t knock it til you try it. Using a darker color on the outside of your lip and then gradually going lighter creates a dynamic wedding makeup look that pairs perfectly with a classic wedding style.
Red Lips and Rosy Cheeks
Forget the red lips…this winter it’s all about the rosy cheeks. It really comes down to personal preference when deciding whether to go with bronzer or blush but this year, simple rosy cheeks were all over the runway.
If done correctly, using the same color for your lip, cheek, and eye makeup can create a stunning wedding makeup look. While not all the same intensity, one of the models rocked this monochromatic makeup look at this years fashion week. Maroon is this years red…try it out!
Highlighter…not the yellow kind
Any bride looking to get that iridescent glow, look no further. Highlighter is your friend. It really helps contour your face and give dimension to any wedding makeup look. Used in combination with other beauty products, it can help accentuate your natural beauty and create a fresh makeup look.
Well there you have it…the top 5 wedding makeup trends that made it down the runway during this years Bridal Fashion Week. Don’t let the fact that we got these tips from fashion models. Anyone can pull them off! It’s all about feeling comfortable and choosing a wedding makeup look that makes you feel like you. With that being said, it’s fun to be a little fashion forward sometimes and try something out of the ordinary. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again—schedule a trial! Have fun strutting your stuff, brides.
