Bridal Makeup Fall/Winter 2013

Are you getting married this Fall or Winter and still undecided on how to wear your makeup?  Well, we are here to help!  On the runways for Fall 2013 there were a variety of makeup trends that caught our eye.  Try out some of these trends and you may find the perfect look for your wedding day!

Cat Eyes

A huge wedding trend this year is Mod themed and inspired weddings so it is no surprise to me that the makeup is also following that trend.  Black liner will be your best friend this Fall and for a bold 60’s look extend your liner to create cat eyes.

Wine Lips

Matte or glossy this lip color is hot for Fall.  Wear this lip with a more neutral eye to prevent looking overdone!

Soft Gray Shadow

The smoky eye will never go out of style, but this Fall a subtle gray with a soft sheen is the new look for a glam eye.

“No Makeup”  Makeup Look/ Matte Skin

It is all about beautiful skin this Fall!  Apply a liquid foundation and cover with a matte powder to achieve this look.  Blush is more subtle this Fall so try a pink sheer blush.

Sparkle Shadow

I was surprised to see this trend return but Chanel used this trend on the runways in a new way.  These crystals are perfectly placed across the lash line to add sparkle and drama to the eye.

Makeup Trends for 2012

Choosing your wedding makeup is a big decision that is sometimes overlooked. With all the time you spend on choosing the dress, hair, shoes and accessories you don’t want to forget about one of the biggest accessories; your makeup.

Whether you decide to have a friend do your makeup or hire a professional makeup artist make sure to have a “trial run” to test out different looks.  I would suggest taking pictures of the makeup looks and then deciding which look you like best. Chances are if it looks good in your photographs it will look fantastic with professional photography.

Below are some of the hottest looks for 2012!

Bold Lips:

A beautiful red lip is timeless! Just make sure to pair it with a nude lid and cheek and don’t forget the black liner and lashes!

Red lipstick is tricky so I would go to your local makeup counter you can try on different lipsticks to find the perfect shade.  Most makeup counters with a small purchase will even give you a mini makeover.  What better way to try on a different look without having to purchase everything?

Smoky Eye:

To me, the smoky eye will always be a trend I love.  Of course gray shadows in various shades and black liner can create this look.  If you decide on a smoky eye choose a more neutral shade of lipstick so you don’t look overdone.

Kim Kardashian always does a really beautiful and dramatic smoky eye.  It may be too much for every day but is a great look for a wedding!

 Don’t be afraid of using color to create a smoky eye! And don’t forget the false eye lashes!

Flawless and Natural:

If you normally don’t wear a lot of makeup, I wouldn’t choose a look that you will not be comfortable with.  Even though you want a more natural look you can still find makeup that will highlight your features.

Just because you want a more natural look it doesn’t mean you have to wear brown eyeshadow. How gorgeous is this green shadow?

Berry, Berry Gorgeous:

Berry shades look great on most skin tones and give you a very romantic look. Pair it with a soft berry or peach lip and cheek to finish the look.
