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.

Wedding Trends: 1960’s Mod Inspiration

One trend in wedding themes for 2013 is a 1960’s mod wedding!  Think bold splashes of color and geometric prints to name just a few of the decor elements.  As with many wedding trends they come and go throughout the years.   If you love the look of this era or not sure what it is all about, take a look at these inspiration ideas to see whether you feel this trend should stay for a while or stay in the 1960’s.

I have to say my favorite thing about a mod wedding is the style and fashion it brings.

The hair and makeup bring these looks together.  For a 1960’s makeup look, pair bold eyelashes with a more nude lip.

For the reception, include geometric prints in your decor.  Yellow and black is always a popular color palette for a mod wedding.  Pair with bright colored flowers to finish the look.

Look at incorporating white vases in odd shapes or lamps as table centerpieces.

Choose a cake that fits the theme and incorporates the color or geometric pattern used throughout the wedding.

Rose Gold Wedding Inspiration

Rose gold jewelry is now inspiring a whole new color palette for weddings!  Pair soft pink with gold to make a beautiful, classic color story perfect for a romantic wedding.   Metallic is also a huge wedding trend this year and mixing metallic elements with soft pink creates a modern look.

Metallic rose gold invitations are absolutely stunning and are a great way to give guests a hint of what they will see at your wedding.

Consider wearing a rose gold wedding dress or even have your maids wear sequined rose gold bridesmaid dresses. If a colored wedding dress isn’t your thing, wear some fun metallic rose gold shoes or belt!

As for the wedding decor, use soft pink linens with gold accents like china and floral containers.

You can also choose to accent your wedding cake with rose gold!  I love the idea adding a few other colors with the pink like orange, purple or blue.
