Bridal makeup predictions for 2016…

So last year I did a bit of a loose prediction on bridal trends for 2015, and now I thought I’d share my research on bridal makeup trends for 2016.  Yes it’s that time of year again!!

So far on the 10 or so wedding makeup trials I have had since the start of the year I’m getting a lot of brides say “yes I want a natural look, but still be evident that I have makeup on”  This really makes my heart sing as I’m loving the streak of confidence women are feeling to be bold, bright and really just enjoy makeup.  It also means I have been busy designing a portfolio of different bridal looks I can refer to this wedding season, where a bride might want to take her look down a stronger more individual path.  There will always been the ‘classic bridal look’ but now it’s teamed with a striking lip colour, or a strong contour.

I think we’re going to see a lot more purples, oranges and maybe even a black in lip colour.  Teamed with easy lined eyes, less shadow and also less blush – instead favouring a contour.
