You want to look sensational on your wedding day. Perhaps you’ve decided that your usual, everyday look just won’t do for the big event – but what should you do differently than you always do? If you want to indulge in a makeover that will dazzle your guests, impress your beloved, and make you look like the most radiant possible version of yourself, try any of the following current wedding makeover trends:
1. Natural, Fresh-Faced Bridal Makeup
Meghan Markle’s barely-there wedding makeup impressed observers and sparked a trend that we predict will remain popular in 2019 and beyond. Simplicity was the most remarkable facet of the entire look, which included soft lip gloss, a hint of eyeshadow and a simple updo crowned by a tiara and veil. Brides-to-be all over the world are now dreaming up ways they, too can copy this look.
Long after the royal wedding, people can’t stop talking about how every freckle on the Duchess’ face was on display during the big event. For brides-to-be who are blessed with freckles, it’s something of a relief to realize they’re not obligated to hide them behind a thick makeup mask.
However, women whose skin is not as glowing as Markle’s may be a bit nervous about attempting this look. While freckles are charming, some future brides may feel embarrassed about prominent moles or other lesions on their faces, particularly if they have moles that are dark in color or have sprouted hairs.
Our advice: If your skin isn’t flawless, you can still enjoy this sort of fresh, natural makeup on your big day. Mole removal treatments are available, which would allow you to get rid of any lesions that make you feel self-conscious. Practitioners at the Cosmos Clinic recommend scheduling mole removal more than one week before your wedding day to ensure complete healing in time for your big event.
2. Microdermabrasion Treatments
Microdermabrasion is another type of skin treatment to consider if the skin on your face isn’t as radiant as you’d like it to be. Microdermabrasion can help you resolve a multitude of minor imperfections on the skin including clogged pores, lingering acne scars, age spots, fine lines, sun damage and even some less prominent wrinkles.
Microdermabrasion helps to exfoliate and brighten the skin while also increasing natural collagen production. The collagen production is one of the two most important keys to its effectiveness in skin rejuvenation. The other prominent aspect is that this type of treatment can also help your skin to be more efficient in absorbing and assimilating the skincare products you use.
Minor redness is a typical side effect of this treatment. The irritation usually resolves in less than 24 hours. However, to be on the safe side, you may wish to schedule microdermabrasion therapy at least 48 hours before your wedding day.
3. Glass Skin
“Glass skin” ties in with the k-beauty trend. K-beauty, also known as Korean beauty, is a carryover trend from years past; it’s a trend that’s still going strong here in Australia, and at this point, the trend shows no signs of decline.
One of the most important steps in achieving the look of glass skin: You clean your face twice using two separate skincare products. One of the products is a cleanser intended to remove makeup; the other is a cleanser focused more on eliminating bacteria and dirt. According to Ashleigh Austen at whimn.com.au, one of the cleansers should be oil-based, and the other should be water-based.
Aside from cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing are other important steps to achieving the look of glass skin. This approach requires drinking copious amounts of water plus layering moisturizing products directly on the skin. Adopting this routine consistently for several days or a week prior to your wedding could result in a luminous, glowing complexion for your wedding day.
4. A Foil Manicure
The details are important on the day of your big event. Perhaps your photographer will snap close-ups of you and your beloved holding hands, or pictures of you clutching your bouquet. You don’t want your fingernails to look ragged or unkempt – so a pre-wedding day manicure is a must.
There are lots of interesting new nail art trends to consider — but out of all of them, foil manicures have the potential to be the dressiest, fanciest and most romantic choice for brides. If the idea of completely covering your nails in metallic foil doesn’t appeal to you, you could try a metallic stripe instead, as suggested by Jenna Rosenstein at Harpers Bazaar.
Other wedding manicure options you might want to consider include stick-on pearls and gems; designer logos; or a romantic sentiment like “LOVE” spelled out across your nails.
5. Dramatic Red Lipstick
Trendspotters observed red lipstick on multiple runways in the spring 2019 fashion shows – and it’s shaping up to be one of the year’s top cosmetic trends. Red lipstick is also a classic favorite that’s sure to still look stylish several decades from now when you look back on your wedding photos and reminisce about your wonderful wedding.
These are 5 top wedding makeover trends for stylish brides in 2019. If you’re planning a 2019 wedding, you’ll definitely want to consider implementing one or more of these ideas to ensure you look up-to-date and fabulous on your wedding day.
