Summer and Spring may be a popular time for weddings, but we can’t help but love autumn weddings. Fall brings cooler weather which means less worry about hair frizzing up or makeup melting off. Best of all, fall bridal beauty is beautiful, fun, and even a little daring.
This season we are trading in our summer pastel, and dewy makeup looks and moving on to a more bold look. Many of 2019’s trends have brides looking glam as they walk down the aisle, but if you are into the no-makeup look, there may be a trend just for you. From the runway to the wedding aisle, here are a few bridal makeup trends for the glowing autumnal bride.
The smokey eye is an oldie but a goodie. The classics are back in trend, and we love the nostalgia that it brings. This season you will find many shimmering palettes showcasing classic golds, deep purples, and the most chocolatey of browns. Smokey eyes look effortlessly chic paired with a nude lip, but don’t be afraid to go bold with a statement lip. Try Alayne Curtiss Bridal Beauty Longwearing Creme Eyeshadows in Bronze Glow on the lid and Beyond Bronze in the outer corners for all day wear on trend.
Deep Berry Lips
Speaking of lip colors, nothing says fall more than a vampy lip. Dark lips can make your makeup stand out, especially when contrasted against the white of your wedding gown. When looking for the perfect berry lip color, think of fruits that have a darker hue such as raspberries, cranberries, or blackberries. Keep in mind that berry lips are more high maintenance, so you will want to use a lip primer to prevent feathering or bleeding. Try Alayne Curtiss Bridal Matte Lipcolors in Vow or Boutonniere to achieve this fabulous fall look.
Glittered eyes lit up the runways this year, and we have to admit we are little starry-eyed. When applied correctly, glitter can look beautiful and tasteful rather than an art project has gone wrong. Stay away from glitter that is too chunky and opt a more microfine sparkle. Try Alayne Curtiss Bridal Beauty Powder Illuminator in Illuminate just below the brow bone and blended softly onto the cheekbone for just enough bridal glow!
So maybe the bold and glam look is not for you…and that’s okay! It’s your day, so you should feel comfortable in what ever makeup look you decide to sport. Being fresh-faced is another trend that has begun to rise in popularity. This look is all about keeping things simple. A little foundation, mascara, blush, and a natural lip stain will show off your beauty and glow. Try blending Alayne Curtiss Bridal Beauty Satin Lipcolor in Broadway with our vanilla scented moisturizing lip balm to give a perfect sheer red stain to your lips that tastes yummy too.
To every fall bride this season, don’t be afraid to try out one of these trends! No matter what makeup look you decide to go with, you are sure to shine on your wedding day.
