Every girl dreams of her perfect look on her big day. From the perfect dress and the gleaming ring to the most impeccable décor and the romantic song to waltz to, a girl’s wedding day is the day she truly gets to feel like a queen. In addition to everything else, another crucial decision to make is what look is she to go for on her big day. For all us minimalist ladies, maybe it is a soft romantic look with lightly tousled waves whereas for others who love to go all out, maybe it is a glam overall look that brings all the drama. A girl just wants to look her absolute best on her wedding.
There is no compromise on that. We admit, planning the perfect wedding is stressful. We have all come across our fair share of bridezillas. It is true, though. In a sea of possibilities, how does a girl just narrow it all down to one? And how does she know it will be the best for her? What if something else is better suited for her? Well, that is where we come in. Following is a listing of the everlasting yet most recent trends to help you decide what look is more your cup of tea.
The No Make Up Look
For all of us who love to keep it simple and minimalist, the no makeup look has been quite the talk of the town. Healthy, glowing skin with a light flush of color on the cheeks and lips, this look is perfect for women who love to show off their skin and keep things fresh and easy going. Before finalizing on this decision, make sure you have been taking good care of your skin and that it is healthy, well exfoliated and well moisturized. Your skin is the star of the show for this look.
Tip: Let your natural beauty shine through. Pair that with simple braid headband or some loose waves and embrace you inner Greek goddess. We all love a no budge matte lip. They are bulletproof and beautiful but they can get a little monotonous and boring. Glossy lips are back! They give your lips a beautiful, luminous and youthful look. It is excellent to pair with minimal makeup.
A Hint of White Shimmer
As you approach your big day, there are bound to be some sleepless nights. There are deadlines to meet and work to get done without any delay. Sleep is, unfortunately, the first thing that we all tend to compromise on. The downside, the bride looking perpetually tired on the day of the actual wedding. While rest is essential to look your absolute best, there is nothing a little bit of makeup cannot fix. The shimmery white shadow on the inner eye sockets always harmonized with your silhouette and adds class.
Tip: To make yourself look more awake and fresh, add a hint of white to your inner corners or run a white eyeliner pencil in your water line. This will give an instant brightened effect. You will look and feel more awake and fresh and bonus, if you are planning on donning a white dress, it will compliment the look perfectly.
Monochromes with a Touch of Gloss for Days
2016 was the year of revival and one comeback was the 90’s monochrome look. With neutral eyes and neutral lips, or the more recent pantone colors like pink and Marsala, the monochrome look has a certain stark attitude about it that brings all the attention to you. It is simple yet breathtakingly stunning and works on all skin tones.
Rose Gold Everything
Can’t decide between warm gold or cool silver? Ditch both and see the magic of the gorgeous rose gold. Rose gold is everywhere, and rightly so! It is so absolutely stunning. It complements every eye color, every skin tone and adds a fresh and royal touch to your look. Go for a rose gold eyeshadow look to bring out your eyes. Metallics and shimmers always attract attention. Maybe sweep some rose-hued highlighter on your cheeks for that added ethereal, youthful glow. You just cannot go wrong with rose gold.
Perfectly Contoured with Brown Eye Makeover
When you have no other option, go with neutrals. It is the safest yet the most foolproof option you can go for. It will never fail you because you know it will give you a natural and stunning look. Browns have been a mainstay in makeup since makeup came into existence. It is earthy and classic. Go for all mattes if it fits your fancy, or add a little hint of sparkle on the lids and you can go from basic to glam in a fraction of a second. It is so versatile that if due to unfortunate circumstances things do not go according to plan on your big day, this is your savior and safest bet. The days of pencil thin brows are long gone and full, thick, and bushy brows are here to stay. Brows are essential because they frame your face and bring out your eyes.
The eyes are the most beautiful feature you can show off. Find the perfect brow shape according to your face and one that best brings out your features. Full brows give a more youthful look. Pair them with a simple cat eye and your eyes will bring all the drama. Cat eyes are sexy, smoldering and add a feline look to your face. The two paired together are perfect for those amongst us who love to go glam.
Flower Crowns and Mussed Waves
For the perfect Bohemian inspired look, give your look a signature touch with a flower wreath or crown to match your bouquet and pair them with free flowing, easy waves or a loose, tousled braid. Give your hair a little kick of volume for that extra drama. A ruffled lace, loose fitting casual dress with this look and a quaint, rustic beach wedding, sounds like something straight out of a movie, doesn’t it?
Vintage Hair Pieces and Scarlet Lips Glam
If you’re a girl who loves a classic red pout, then this one is for you. Red lips have been known to make women feel more confident, badass and more beautiful. It is your wedding day and if you wish to feel that way when you walk down the aisle, then you do you, girl! Red lips are signature vintage glam. Pair them with a vintage jeweled head piece and voila, you will look and feel like you watch straight out of a Katherine Hepburn classic. Incorporate that modern twist in your look and personalize it to make it your own.
Chic Hair Updos for All the Drama
Pulling the hair back in a classic bun has been the go-to for many brides. It is beautiful and hassle free. More importantly, buns give an overall clean and more polished look. Your updo doesn’t have to be boring. Add some spunk to it by incorporating braids, hair ornaments or go for the trendy messy bun look to turn heads on your big day.
Braids All the Way
It would be ignorant to say braids are trendy because braids have been, are and always will be trendy. They are a classic. They are classy, chic and perpetual. If you are confused about what kind of hairstyle you wish to rock on your wedding, it is okay to play it safe. Opt for braids because they are regal, elegant and most importantly, hassle free! Your hair will not budge if it is secured in a braid. You don’t have to worry whether it looks alright and whether you have to go for a touch-up. Once it is done, you are sorted. Now you can dance your socks off and not care about your hair falling out of place.
Let Your Hair Down and Get Your Glow On
Glowing skin is the obsession of the millennial. Every girl loves to pack on highlighter on the top of her cheekbones so she can look radiant and healthy. Your skin should be the showstopper. A soft, glowy, romantic makeup look is all that every girl wants nowadays. It is after all, so elegant and beautiful! Let your hair down to frame your bone structure for a casual and relaxed look. Throw in some loose curls or keep it straight and sleek, you will feel like a queen, regardless.
Every woman has the right to look and feel like the princess she always dreamt of being. As she walks down that aisle or slow dances under the stars with the love of her life to that perfect song, she deserves to look her absolute best. She also needs to know that it is all in place and not going anywhere so there is no added stress of touch ups or things falling out of place.
