Natural Wedding makeup

My research at this time of the year turns to the Bridal catwalk shows and big name designers to what is new and what timeless looks remain popular. My clients will always ask what is ‘on trend’ for the coming year.

In 2017 make up is fresher, and subtle with small flashes of colour here and there from a cheek or lip.  As always dewy, glowy skin remains very present as a classic, modern make up look for a Bride.

Hair seems to have taken a gentler side too with very natural flowy hair down looks but braids do remain a dominant look too, either incorporated into a style or making up the whole hairstyle.

Remember the key is just to take a small part of these influences and incorporate them into your overall look so that your look remains timeless.

Braided half up bridal hair style

I am loving both of these understated, nearly natural looks.  Dewy skin and a pale pink lip look fabulous against our beautiful tropical settings.  Let your flowers etc. do the talking and keep the make-up simple. For a subtle peachy pink lip try Bourjois Souffle de Velvet in VIP Peach.  Long lasting too.

For hair I am loving these low twisted chignon type braids  – perfect to keep you cool and your hair neat in the heat of a Key West summer.

Also these half up/half down with the braid at the back is a timeless look for a modern Bride. 

Loose braded hair.

This year the return of the hair vines.  These now have a more modern twist rather than looking ‘princessy’ and can be beautiful if incorporated into a hairstyle.
