Wedding Makeup Trends in 2018

While wedding planning can be stressful and time consuming, a lot of it is fun and if you’re anything like me you’ll enjoy doing it. One of those things for a lot of brides is the beauty aspect, and particularly the wedding makeup. Makeup is almost an art form nowadays and choosing the right look for your wedding day is super important. Take a look at a few of the trends that are taking over 2018 weddings, and see if any of these wedding makeup looks are right for you.

Strong Brows

Big and bold eyebrows have made a comeback over the last few years thanks to supermodel Cara Delevigne. A strong brow can define your whole face, and really improve a look. Models on the runway, contemporary brides and your everyday girl next door are all taking their looks to the next level.

To get this look: Line the shape of your brows (or the shape you want) with a gel brow liner and then fill in the rest gently with a compact powder.

Minimal Makeup

This is the perfect look for the natural bride, it’s the no makeup makeup look. The key to this is to make sure you have well moisturized and exfoliated skin coming up to your wedding day. Even though you want to make it look like you’re not wearing much makeup it is important to wear long lasting brands. Use a good primer so it stays on all day long.

To get this look: Use a light foundation, a touch of blush, a lick of mascara, and a nude lip.

Glowy Look

Highlighter, highlighter, highlighter !! This is a popular look at the moment in the wedding makeup world. It gives you a dewy fresh look without looking oily or greasy.

To get this look: Put highlighter on your cheekbones, the inside of your eyes, your eyebrow arch and the tip of your nose.

Golden Bronze Eyes

Ever since Kylie Jenner released her bronze eyeshadow palette, the makeup world has been going crazy for a bronze smoky eye. If you have blue or green eyes, go for a really orangey bronze and it will make your eye colour pop.

To get this look: Lair bronze eye shadows on top of each other, starting with the lightest colour. There are plenty of tutorials online, or if  you’re getting a makeup artist, show her a picture of a finished look you like.
