Whether you are hiring a makeup artist or doing your own makeup for your wedding, it’s always a good idea to do your homework on what you want! Even if you are wanting a timeless beauty look, it can still be fun to look at what the current trends are. This year, brides are all about the more natural look!
Wedding Makeup and Hair Trends for 2022
Here are some of the most popular makeup and hair trends among brides for this year!
Natural makeup is a huge trend right now, and that is no different for brides! Although brides aren’t exactly doing the “no makeup” makeup look, they are definitely leaning towards the more natural look versus full-out glam makeup look that brides were doing in the past.
This typically involves a foundation that still shows your skin’s texture, soft blush and contouring, individual lashes, matte + neutral eyeshadows, and a light pink/nude lip!
The half-up, half-down hairstyle has been extremely popular for brides in the last few years! This year, we have been seeing the look with more braids and/or extra volume.
This is incredibly popular for boho brides!
Glam Eye Looks
A softer look on the face combined with a dramatic eye is a popular trend among brides right now. It’s a great way to add some dramatic glam to your makeup without going all-out on the rest of your makeup!
About 5-10 years ago, every bride was asking for no blush. They wanted a fully matte, contoured look. But now, blush is back and better than ever! Brides tend to go for the softer pink shades.
And this is not just limited to the cheeks! You can apply some blush to the temples or nose, too.
Many brides are choosing to do a ponytail or braid for their hair – we think that this trend is here to stay!
Some brides even choose to add accessories through their pony or braid, like pearls or flowers.
This trend can be a tricky one. A lot of brides are wanting a dewy look rather than a matte one. However, this can totally depend on your skin type and the climate of your wedding. If you are getting married somewhere hot and humid, it may be tricky for your makeup to be dewy without looking overly shiny and oily! This is something that you’ll definitely want to chat with your makeup artist beforehand to make sure that it can be achieved.
Finally, many brides are ditching the dramatic lashes and choosing more natural ones. This might mean individual lash clusters, lash extensions, or just some mascara on your natural lashes!
