Beauty Trends the Spring Bride Shouldn’t Ignore
You’ve got the dress, the shoes, and the date, which is just around the corner. The only other thing a spring bride needs? Fresh, flawless makeup to reflect the season she will say ‘I Do’. There’s something about spring makeup that we just can’t get enough of. Don’t get us wrong, summer tans are great, and so are the dark, moody makeup colors of fall and winter. But the pretty pinks and delicate details of spring beauty reigns supreme when it comes to bridal makeup looks. We’ve rounded up some of our most favorite, never-fail spring makeup trends that seem to always come back in style year after year. These are sure to make any bride look like radiant, whether her wedding be in spring or not.
A Pink-Toned Lip with a Nude Liner
This is a great option for any bride a little intimidated to play with a bold color on the lips for her wedding day. We love it because it add dimension to the lips, makes them look extra full, and works for day or nighttime weddings. Start by applying a nude liner a few shades darker than your natural skin tone all around the lips, and smudge inward so it’s beautiful and blended! Then, top it with your favorite pinky-nude creamy lipstick. The trick is to make sure your lipstick is a few shades lighter than your liner-that’s how you’ll get the effect you want. Then, voila! Pretty lips for spring! Here’s a pro-tip: Let your Maid of Honor hold on to your lipstick for you, so you can touch up between the ceremony and reception.
Pastel Shadows on the Lower Lash Line
Let’s be honest: a vibrant smokey eye might not be the most realistic look for the average bride. But, you can still incorporate the soft colors of spring into your eyeshadow look for your wedding day by using your favorite, pastel shadows on the lower lash line! Blush pinks, light lavenders, or even a baby blues (this can double as your ‘something blue’) will look amazing. Press the shadow closely under the lashes, then blend out with a fluffier brush. Add mascara and some false lashes and you’ve got a subtle spring eye look that will flatter every bride!
Highlight to the Heavens
Matte looks can have their moment in fall and winter, but in the spring, it’s all about that glow. Nothing looks more stunning on a spring bride than dewy, glowing skin. To achieve it, set your foundation base with a blurring powder, and use bronzers and contour powders with a hint of shimmer as opposed to matte powders. Then, follow up with a fan brush to sweep a beaming highlighter powder on the tops of the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, and across the cupid’s bow. Want even more highlight? Add a little to the inner corners of the eyes to make them pop. You’ll go from dull to dewy in just minutes, and glow all the way down the aisle!
