Five New Bridal Beauty Trends For 2018

Your bridal makeup inspo for 2018 is here.

“No makeup” makeup

This beauty trend is certainly not new but thanks to the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, you can expect a lot of brides to be embracing the natural “no makeup” makeup look this 2018.

A natural makeup look is all about skin prep so to make sure that your skin will have a healthy glow, try Alpha-H Liquid Gold Overnight Treatment (RRP: $59.95). With glycolic acid and licorice extract, this product helps fade skin pigmentations, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and reveals a fresher and healthier complexion after each use. This overnight treatment is to be used two to three times a week and to be applied to your face, neck and décolletage.

With your skin prepped and ready, use Skindinavia’s The Makeup Primer Spray (RRP: $49.00) before applying your makeup to ensure it will last all day long.

This makeup mist is silicone-free helping to create a light barrier between the skin and makeup, plus also helping to reduce redness and large pores. This product is also hypoallergenic, which is perfect for brides with sensitive and reactive skin types.

Apply Skindinavia The Makeup Finishing Spray Bridal (RRP: $39.95) makeup mist to set your makeup as this will assist in giving you a more natural finish and to help you create a luminous bridal look.

Makeup mists are also good to keep in hand on the day of the wedding as spraying it throughout the day will help freshen your skin and help your makeup last longer.

Glossy lips

The days of the matte lips are slowly coming to an end as high shine gloss makes a comeback. For a soft, natural, luscious lips go for a lip gloss over matte lipsticks. Glossy lips make your lips look more kissable and leaves you with a romantic and soft makeup look.

We recommend this look for brides opting for a hair updo as we don’t want any hair sticking to your lips. Try Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Tint Oil (RRP: $52.00) and Urban Decay Hi-Fi Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss (RRP: $34.00).

Soft-smoky eyes

If you’re a fan of the smoky eyes, we’ve got good news for you. Add a bit of glam to your wedding day makeup look by opting for soft-smoky eyes. By not going too heavy with the eyeliner, you achieve a soft and dramatic eye look. Use palettes such as Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection (RRP: $71.00) which offers great shades of matte and shimmery browns to create a soft, brown smoky eye look.

Soft, natural and subtle contour

Thanks to Kim Kardashian, the world became obsessed with contouring. Contouring is the use of dark and light shades to sculpt your face and give the illusion of higher cheekbones. To still look like you on your wedding day, tell your makeup artist to opt for a soft and natural contour by simply using a bronzer around your temples, forehead and under your cheekbones. The key is to blend, blend and blend to achieve a soft and natural look. Once this is done, go over your contour with a beauty blender or foundation brush to achieve a subtle contour.
