Every bride wants her makeup to be perfect for her big day, but it can be difficult to keep on top of bridal trends to make sure your makeup is on point. You may hear a range of different and sometimes even contradictory tips and even if you do finally get your head around it, how do you know if these “trends” will still be trendy by the time your wedding day actually comes around?
Thankfully, makeup expert Natalie Hehir from Makeup by Nat is here to give you the trends for 2019 that brides can’t get enough of.
Bye bye nude! 2019 is all about making bold statements with berry coloured lips. Celebs can’t get enough of the pretty but striking confidence that berry lips radiate. It’s the perfect colour to add a feminine palette to your makeup. Finish berry lips with more subtle blusher in pastel colours for the perfect combination.
Ever wondered how celebrities get that beautiful and healthy glisten, without ever breaking into a sweat? Dewy highlights give you the catwalk glow while you walk down the aisle. Make sure you use creams rather powder to highlight and give a natural glow.
Let’s be honest, you may not get a lot of beauty sleep the night before your wedding day. All the planning, drinking, nerves - and even some tears - can result in a tired bride. Fluffy strip lashes can give picture-perfect brides the ideal frame for the eyes and draw attention away from any bags under the eye area. Quality is important here to give a high-end appearance.
Pink and Mauve Eyeshadow
One of the biggest trends at Liverpool Fashion week were pink and mauve eyeshadow. These shades have recently been making an appearance in bridal makeup and are the industry’s must have for 2019! For best results, apply a neutral base coat, then use a shade of mauve in the crease. To complete the look, use a highlighter just above the crease and in the inner corner of the eyes to apply the pink shades.
How To Get The Perfect Look
So now you know the trends. What next? Here are Nat’s top techniques on how to achieve perfect the look.
Eyes first. Beginning with eye makeup first makes it easier to clean up any fallout before applying your base.
Prime your skin. Perfect makeup looks best on good skin, so it’s vital to prepare the skin beforehand. I recommend beginning as soon as possible to make sure your skin is healthy and glowing for the big day.
Good lighting is paramount. Many hotels have poor lighting which makes it harder to get the makeup just right. Check the room beforehand and use a ring light where possible.
Best for last. The bride’s makeup should be applied after the bridal party to ensure it’s fresh and perfect. A good makeup artist should always allow plenty of time for the bride and then touch ups on the bridal party if necessary.
