Wedding Make-Up

The Hottest Wedding Make-Up Styles on the 2018 Runways

A new year is almost here, and with wedding season in full swing, couples throughout South Africa are once again paving the way towards their “I dos”. If you’re a summer bride-to-be, then by now you’ve most probably been eating, walking, sleeping, and dreaming about your Big Day. In fact, you’ve probably not only become an expert pinning connessiour, but you’re also more than likely a regular on all those top international bridal blogs and vlogs.

But scouting bridal fashion week and all those rising bridal blogs is not just about the wedding dress, it’s also very much about inspiration for wedding make-up. From bold brows to white eyeliner, and red or pink lips to natural make-up, here are the hottest wedding make-up styles on the 2018 runways.


Natural is Back

Your natural beauty should shine through on your Big Day with glowing skin, pinched flushed cheeks, and fresh-bitten lips. Yes, natural is doing its rounds again and brides all over the world are embracing their natural beauty. While the key to getting this look right is to drink plenty of water, make sure that your skin is clean, and exfoliate and moisturise well, this natural healthy rosy look is complemented by a light foundation moisturiser to avoid trouble spots, a pop of blush brushed across the apples, and a touch of concealer beneath the eyes. Finish the look with a nude or a rose-pink lip colour, and you’ll look picture-perfect.

Strong Brows

When it comes to wedding make-up, while a gorgeous natural fresh face and glowing complexion will always look good coming down the aisle, another favourite is big, bold eyes with bold brows. Yes, brows are a funny thing. One day the entire world is thinning them out, as that’s what fashion tells us to do, and the next moment we’re spending thousands trying to thicken them. The bottom line is that thick brows make the eyes pop, so women all over the world are embracing this eye-catching make-up trend for their weddings. But to get it right, fill in the brows to get the shape you want, and then lightly apply powder over it.


Defined Smokey Eyes

Brides who desire to embrace a more alluring make-up style should choose the smokey eye. An eye style that never fails in delivering depth and dimension to a woman’s face, the Smokey eye can be worn with dark lips or nude lips. It is a classic look that will always reign supreme, in both the fashion and bridal industry.

While all these 2018 wedding make-up trends can give you a better idea of what you should look out for, it is of vital importance to keep in mind that good, healthy, and well-hydrated skin is the key to looking truly radiant on your Big Day.
