BRIDAL - Spring/Summer 2017 Makeup Trends

Goodbye Winter 2016, HELLO Spring 2017!

Its the time of year where all spring/summer brides start to panic and realise their wedding is THIS YEAR!

Im going to bring you into the spring sprit and get you all makeup ready!!
Spring officially starts in March, so you have 2 months to get prepared ;)

Of course all my brides know that they get an insight to my 'Bridal Bible' with all the top trends and colours that are taking over the catwalk for their wedding season.
So I'm going to bring you all up to date and help you 'hopefully' find your bridal makeup look which can be incorporated/requested for you big day.

White Lashes
So this is the only 'rare' makeup look which is probably not wearable, but its here anyway!
White lashes struck on the S/S 17 catwalk shows and really gave the models a wide eye effect!
White is a key colour when giving the eye a bright, wide eye look. To incorporate this trend in your bridal look it would be great to apply white mascara to your bottom lashes, this then is not too over powering and will help focus on the make up around the eyes.

Oils all together are a big trend this year!
Spring becomes about radiant skin to every day makeup so artists will be mixing dry facial oils with foundations to give that radiant, dewy skin effect, which is gorgeous! (Its what ill be doing!)
For brides the big oil trend is for their lips! Last year brands released lots of lip oils which I was a huge fan of. It gave the effect of a glossy, plumped, high shine lip but without the stickiness AND it conditions at the same time! No cracked lips this year.
This is perfect for brides wanting a fresh look when concentrating on flawless skin to strike that luxurious lip look.

Pink Lips
Go hand in hand with the oil trend! Baby pink lips look a dream on an English Rose skin type so add the oil and add the show into show-stopping.
If you have medium to dark skin tones warmer pinks work a treat as well, giving that more feminine, romantic look for your special day.

Rosy Cheeks
Another pinky theme to the bridal look this year. Depending on your skin tone the main shades you will be looking at to get that rosy look would be pinks and corals.
Perfect to perk up the skin and to let your skin look so healthy (when really you've been stressing ;))

Platinum Eyes
A new one on the list this year! Another word for Platinum would be your silvers and metal greys.
Now I wouldn't recommend a grey smokey eye on most people due to this giving a 'cool' overall look which can make your skin look dull.
Put a layer of silver sparkle on the centre of the eye lid or a metal grey on the outter eyelid and blend through with metallic shades.

Fresh Face
This one never leaves the trends, all brides want a fresh face for their wedding day.
I believe that 90% of this is your skincare! Get your skincare in a routine and see the effects happen dramatically, you will have a 'fresh face' within a month of sticking to this!
Then its your choice to go matte or dewy on your big day.
Don't forget HD Airbrushing is the 'ultimate' fresh face for my brides.
I do offer this service.

Subtle Smokes
For brides its not all about the dramatic smokey eyes, they always want a toned down effect but still giving a sultry smokey eye in a 'romantic' way.
Which fits right in with this seasons trend.
Subtly smokes from the catwalk was worn using soft brows and smoking out the eyeshadow under the BOTTOM lashes and softly bringing into your crease.
I love this one!
On our trials I can guide you with wearing this look to compliment your eye shape and not everyone has the same application positioning.

Pearlised Eyes
Similar to the 'Platinum Eyes' but pearlised comes more under a different effect.
Pearlised eyes are like a toned down holographic effect, so perfect to use on the eyelid.
This is gorgeous in a soft pink shade bringing a really romantic feel to a look and turning it more sultry when incorporating the 'Subtle Smokes'

Inner Corners
The inner corner trend was a huge one for A/W 16!
I most definetly took advantage of this one by wearing a lot of sparkle and iridescent pigments in my inner corner.
This not only looks shimmery but also opens up and brightens the eye and also recommended for anyone with 'close set eyes'(Again I can help identify your eye shape'
You could also incorporate the Platinum eye trend by wearing the silvers in your inner corner also but the catwalk showed a lot of Golds and Brass bronzes for this look.
Depending on your skin tone certain colours can work better for you.

False Lashes
Last but not least, the year after year eyelash lovers!
They can be bold, feathered, sparse, mix of lengths, you name it!
But I can never recommend my Flutter Lashes treatment any more than I do.
These are feathered individual lashes and are my favourite for all brides as they are not too heavy, look natural and they don't hide your eye makeup (BIG ONE)
Flutter lashes can be booked in for anyone, Just £15

And thats our Spring/Summer 2017 Bridal Trends!
I hope this has either helped or gave you an insight in what can be requested for any bridal look and also keep you on trend for your 2017 wedding.

These can all be tried and tested at your trials where i can help identify and recommend ways of which these trends can personally work for you.

I still have a couple of dates free for 2017 brides.
