Getting professional make-up done on your wedding day ensures you look and feel confident, beautiful, and photo-ready all day (and night!). Wedding make-up should bring out your best features, show off your style, and compliment your outfit, but finding the right look with so many stunning examples can be tricky. In this post, we explore the top five bridal make-up trends of 2022 to get your wedding inspiration flowing.
1. Minimal Make-Up Looks
Less is more when it comes to make-up in 2022. The lockdown micro-wedding trend saw a wave of casual brides wearing no-make-up-make-up and looking gorgeously relaxed. This make-up minimalism continues today, with soft, smoky eye shadow in neutral earth tones, nude lips, and lightly blushed cheeks. This natural look lets you play up your eyes with this year’s famous fox eyeliner trend and looks lovely with a tousled half-up hairstyle.
2. A Glowing Complexion
Brides in 2022 are ditching the matte finish for a glowing, fresh complexion that shimmers in the light. This look is a product of the recent skincare boom that emphasises cleansing, toning and hydrating your skin before applying makeup for a naturally radiant look. You’ll need an experienced make-up artist to perfect a dewy skin finish – considering your skin type and the climate when applying luminous cream products and highlighters.
3. Peachy Pink Palette
Blushing brides are big in 2022 with flushed, rosy cheeks and peachy eyeshadow looks paired with lightly glossed pink lips. Cream blush is a current bridal favourite that adds warmth to the cheeks while preserving your natural skin texture and shine. The pink make-up trend is all about looking effortlessly elegant and feminine – perfect for creating soft, romantic looks with hazy cheekbones and just-kissed blurry liplines.
4. Brushed-Up Brows
It’s never been a better time to have big eyebrows – this year is all about showing them off and brushing them up for maximum drama. The fluffy brow look adds a natural lift to your face and creates an open-looking eye with space for more shadow on the brow bone. Brow lamination, soap brows, and coloured brow gel are popular ways for brides to achieve a glossy and smooth eyebrow look highlighting individual hairs.
5. Individual Lashes
Full, fluffy eyelashes are the stars of any minimal make-up look – drawing attention to your eyes without overpowering the rest of the face. Brides choose individual lash extensions in 2022, carefully placing them to look more natural and elegant than a thick set of strip lashes. The fluffy lash trend pairs perfectly with naked eyes or earthy eyeshadow tones.
