After having found the perfect dress, the next important step is: choosing the wedding makeup and hairstyle that fit you best. And on catwalk you can find this year many makeup ideas that pleads for natural beauty. The hottest two makeup trends in 2016 for brides’: the classic elements that will never go out of style, but with fine reinterpretations, and on the other hand, trends inspired from the 2016 catwalk look with natural bohemian makeup, delicate cheeks, nude or pale pink lips, natural thick eyebrows, pink and blue accents.
The retro glam wedding makeup
Red lips and cat eyes were classic elements that stood out at Badgley Mischka brides, Ines di Santo and Elizabeth Fillmore, evoking the glamour and typical Hollywood stars style.
Red lipstick will definitely never go out of style, as it highlights any bride, regardless of face shape or hair color. The matte, slightly powdery finish will last longer than creamy and fluid lipstick texture.
Natural beauty looks seen at Jenny Packham, AMSA and Oscar de la Renta show that less is more. Fashion designers have used cream foundation to even out and to keep skin moisturized, blush or bronzer for cheeks, a touch of mascara and nude or pink lipstick. This makeup suits women with a clean skin, very well exfoliated and hydrated.
Illuminated and pearly cheeks create a radiant, young, fresh and healthy looking skin. To achieve this effect use a highlighter on the cheekbones and inner corner of the eye.
Lips in pale pink and delicate coral match most skin types and remain the favorite catwalk make-up element at Pronovias and Ramona Keveza.
Natural thick eyebrows
Another trend for 2016 is thick eyebrows. Made famous by Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Brooke Shields, thick eyebrows are back in trends this year. Even if you are not enjoying growing thick eyebrows, they can be contoured with a pencil that is a bit lighter than your natural color to define the shape, then follow with a brow powder that is closer to your natural hair color. After, use a brow gel to set the powder.
The way you shape your brows can change your look, taking away a few years and also, lending freshness to your face. It is also one of the most important makeup tricks to make your eyes pop. Your eyebrows are so important. They frame your face. Pencil-thin eyebrows are out — they give a more mature look. Be sure to keep them shaped carefully.
