The nip in the air not only heralds the onset of winter but also the most popular season for tying the knot. We’re sure that you have found the most fashionable outfits to wear on your special day, but is your makeup keeping pace with the latest trends? We’ve put together the hottest makeup trends of this season to help you look more gorgeous and stunning than ever!
Less is More
Be it home décor, outfits or makeup, minimalism is in vogue right now. This is the perfect look for you if you need to balance heavily embellished attire or if you are not keen on applying too much makeup. Proudly show off your bare-faced natural beauty with nude eye makeup and sheer lips. If that’s too less for you, then simply highlight one aspect of your face, such as your eyes or lips, for a striking effect.
Smokin’ Hot Eyes
While smokey eyes have always been in fashion among brides, especially for evening weddings, coloured smokey eyes are now trending. So ditch the usual dark grey and charcoal and add a pop of colour for a modish look. If you’re a brown-eyed girl, then go in for shades of blue or green. If you’re not sure which colour to opt for then try the universally flattering colour – purple.
If smokey eyes don’t do it for you, then use swatches of metallic colours such as gold or silver on your eyes for an edgy look. The best thing about metallic shades is that they are versatile enough to complement any colour outfit. So, go heavy on sparkling and glittering metallic shades for a glamorous look on your big day.
Natural lashes are out, and false lashes are in! Make your eyes look more dramatic and striking by using false eyelashes on the lower lids, a touch of extra curling mascara or putting on false lashes on both the lids for a doll-like look. If you’re the kind of bride who is no afraid to experiment, then try tinting your lashes with a colour other than black.
Contrast Lip Colours
Wearing red lipstick with a red wedding outfit is out, and contrast colours are in! Play it bold when it comes to selecting the contrast colour. So if your ensemble is a traditional bridal red, then try a sassy hot pink shade that will let your lips do all the talking. Applying a vivid orange with a pink lehenga is also a great idea for brides who love to stand out and look unique rather than fit in.
Lips like Berries
Berry-toned shades are in rage right now, so get your hands on some cheery strawberry, plum, and raspberry lip colours. If you’re looking for richer and warmer colours, then go for deep wine shades that will enhance your beauty and give you a distinctive appearance. No matter which colour you choose, keep in mind that matte lipsticks are a hit now rather than glossy ones.
Goth is Back
Gothic makeup is in style again, which is perfect for brides who plan on wearing dark-coloured ensembles. Accentuate your Goth-inspired look by pairing your deep blue or purple attire with lips the hue of wine and eyes the colour of charcoal. Carry off this unusual gothic look on your wedding day with élan, and you will be redefining the image of a traditional bride.
