It’s a new year, we’re all a little older and wedding season is already looking pretty crazy. I have 4 wedding dates left for this year so please get in touch if you are thinking of booking in.
Lucikly for me, 2022’s bridal makeup trends seem to be very similar to the styles that I love to create. Winner!
Glossy looking skin is in. This is easier to create in theory. In reality, there is definitely a fine line between glossy and sweaty. If you’re looking to have glossy skin or eyes for your wedding this year, a good skincare routine is so important. Check my skincare routine post for a little advice.
To create a softer, more wearable version of glossy skin, add a little bit of gold highlighter to the high points of your face such as your cheekbones and under your brow arch. For a subtle all-over glow, add this product all over your face before applying foundation.
If you’re like me, you probably look a little dead without some colour in your cheeks, so I’m glad that blush is here to stay for 2022. I once remember a makeup artist telling me that you can’t have too much blush. That, I think, is a lie. You can have too much. No one wants to look like a clown. My advice; pay attention to the colour you go when you blush or workout (or in my case – drink red wine) and try to replicate that colour and quantity.
Apparently, coloured eyeliner is on-trend. This isn’t something I necessarily recommend for a wedding day but if you’re looking for a pop of colour, try a soft lavender or deep blue/green and blend it out. Kiko is great for coloured pencils.
A growing favourite for me is pink eyeshadow. Not the kind that you would find free with the latest issue of Shout! or Sugar magazine, but a beautiful pink such as the now-classic Pillow talk by Charlotte Tilbury.
Pink lipstick is expected to make an appearance this year for brides and I’m pretty happy about that. There is a pink shade for everyone!
Over the last year, I have noticed the importance of wearing colours that suit your complexion. Unfortunately, it’s a minefield out there, but this website has some handy guides on what colours to wear. I’ll post the links below.
