Makeup Trend : The Natural Glow 

It is the year of embracing natural beauty. This is a trend that comes around again and again as it is timeless; it plays up your features without going overboard. “It’s not true that your make-up has to be an inch thick for the photographs. A lot of wedding is done in natural light and if you choose a heavy base, the make-up will look unnatural,” Gelly advises.

Sculpted cheeks using highlighter and contouring products bring out the high cheekbones. The cheek colour should look as though you are blushing after receiving a nice compliment from a certain someone special! A subtle reddish-pink complements any skin tone but if you’re fair-skinned, use a lighter touch or tap your blush brush on a tissue before applying.

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. A softer smokey eyes enhanced by light shimmer eye shadow and curtained by long feathery eyelashes with a generous mascara will immediately bring the eyes to life. Ensure that the eyebrows are well defined as it creates a frame for the face.

If you’re moisturising your face, don’t forget to do the same for your lips. You wouldn’t want your lips dry and cakey by the time it has come to that moment to kiss your groom! A satin-y finish lipstick in pale pink shades of nudes, rose pink, blush pink or coral creates a subtle pucker that is in trend for this wedding season.

Simple, naturally styled high chignons with a few loose strands are ideal for a contemporary fuss free bride. Pairing it with some interlaced braids or flowers give a more refined bohemian look.

The versatility of braids means it can take center stage or be an added plus. The everlasting longevity as a go-to hairstyle ensures you will always look back on your wedding photos fondly.

Ultra Glam

The Ultra Glamorous brides are looking to make a statement with their hair. This distinct style can be interpreted in many ways but the perfectly styled hair always makes an impact. Often Glam means channeling the 1920s, old Hollywood and this hairdo is perfect for short and long hair. Gelly says they recommend brides to use a piece of statement accessory to boost this look. They only use Korean sourced and styled accessories for her bridal hairstyles and never recommend a big bouffant!
