Bridal Makeup Trends for 2019

Let your bridal personality shine on the big day. From natural and minimalist, to bold and beautiful, here are some of the top bridal makeup trends that will be big in 2019.

Smokey Eye

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire

The smoky eye is very sexy, but admittedly, it can also be a bit heavy for certain brides. That’s why clever makeup artists have come up with the ingenious alternative of the blurry eye. It maintains the trendy shape of the original, but you can leverage a broader range of colours and apply it in a more muted and lighthearted fashion.

By smudging the colours to remove a heavy-set dark line across the lid, you’ll still get a dramatic look, but without feeling like your eyeshadow is wearing you.

Metallic Eye Makeup

When the rest of your makeup is subtle and natural, a wonderful way to spice up your look is to add a rich, red pout. There are so many selections of red lipstick nowadays if you’re set on a stand-out pout, you’ll have no problem finding the perfect shade. Not to mention, deep red lipstick, with purple undertones, makes your teeth look whiter and your lips look more luscious – winning!
