While your wedding dress may be the star of the show, it is important to have flawless makeup and gorgeous hair to match. We have seen some great bridal looks on this year’s runway collections, so take a look at some of the top wedding beauty trends below.
Pink lips – Save the dramatic lips for a night out with friends, and opt for a coral or soft pink, which will bring out your natural shade. For a sheer lip that does not have an awful gloopy texture, try a colourful balm instead of a gloss or lipstick.
Easy waves – For the past few seasons, Bohemian waves have been a massive hit. For 2017, they have had more of a polished makeover. Opt for relaxed waves that are a little less mussed for a stunning, romantic look. Take a look at the Monique Lhuillier show for some inspiration.

Pearl accents – French manicures are a thing of the past, but you don’t want to go for a crazy design on your nails when you are getting married. Instead, choose a pastel shade and adorn with pearl accents for a unique yet elegant touch.
Brown eye makeup – If you turn to your trusted black eyeliner whenever doing your makeup, take it a shade down for your wedding day. This is a trend that we have seen on many bridal runway shows lately, including Marchesa and Alberta Ferretti. Brown is the perfect shade for your special day, as it will bring out your eyes, ensuring you don’t look half asleep when your wedding photographer hands over the photos. However, it’s not too in-your-face!
Tiaras – Tiaras are back in fashion; it’s official. But, be careful regarding how you wear your tiara to ensure you don’t have a dated look. Teaming your tiara with a draped overwrought chignon is sure to look overdone, making it appear like you are stuck in the past. Instead, choose a sleek, pulled back look or go for an effortless hairstyle, such as the easy waves mentioned above.
Glitter pout – Glitter lips are the hottest beauty trend for 2017, and there is no reason why you can’t rock them on your wedding day. Only go for this look if the rest of your makeup and accessories are going to be striped back; you don’t want different elements of your look to be competing for attention.
Metallic liner – Last but by no means least, we have metallic liner. A sweep of metallic liner on your bottom lash line will make your eyes look big and bright. Although you are advised to choose something blue for your wedding day, don’t be overzealous with your choice – opt for a silvery blue rather than a vibrant shade. This will help you to achieve a soft look while still being unique.
Hopefully, you now have some beauty inspiration for your wedding day. From glitter pouts to luscious, easy waves, there are so many gorgeous trends to have fun with this year. But don’t try and do them all!
