You want to look your best on your wedding day – but you also don’t want to look like every other bride out there!
These are seven unique wedding beauty trends that you should consider for your big day. All of these ideas can also be adapted for bridesmaids or other members of the wedding party.
Headpieces Instead Of Veils
If you’re not feeling the whole veil thing but still want to do something different with your hair, consider a headpiece! This trend is gaining momentum, particularly for outdoor weddings. It helps to elevate your look and make it something special, but you won’t feel weighed down by all that tulle. There’s a lot of variety in headpieces – try a flower crown, a beaded tiara, or a sparkly headband.
Not into any kind of headpiece at all? A simple but beautiful way to dress up your hair and change it from a regular formal look is to weave fresh flowers through your hair. This is a great twist on the already popular wedding braid trend. Baby’s breath is a popular choice, but there’s really nothing to stop you from using any type of flower you like.
We can thank Kate Middleton for reviving this trend! Long sleeves are gaining momentum in the world of wedding dresses, and recent celebrity brides like Ashlee Simpson and Nicky Hilton both kept their arms firmly covered in lace. It’s a great idea for winter weddings.
While you want to look your best in your photos, you don’t want to look like a completely different person. The biggest trend in wedding makeup is you but better. Skip the contouring and harsh eyeliner. Fresh, glowing skin should be your highest priority. A good makeup artist will be able to achieve this, but if you’re doing your own makeup use theBalm Cindy-Lou Manizer over your foundation for a sheer glow.
We often think of long, loose waves when it comes to wedding hair. But a sleek and smooth bun or ponytail might be a better choice. They’re less likely to come undone and will stay in place through your long day. Monique Lhullier chose chic but simple low buns to showcase her latest bridal collection. Plus it keeps the attention on your dress!
Pink lips and cheeks paired with soft skin and lightly defined eyes was a rising trend at Bridal Fashion Week. This is a classic English Rose look. Skip the spray tan and focus on a rosy glow. Try Universal Beauty’s Tint Stick for a lip that lasts without over the top.
A dusting of sparkles around the tip of the nails is becoming an extremely popular wedding manicure trend. This style works best on a nude or pale pink nail. This is a great look for bridesmaids as well as brides!
