Bridal Beauty Looks 2018

You are in for a treat!  I have here another guest blog post by Mia Taylor offering the Bridal Beauty Looks 2018!

With the holiday season and the Valentine’s Day just around the corner, love is certainly almost tangible in the air, and as we’re stepping into 2018, many magical moments await – one of which, of course, will be the big “I do”! And with new beginnings come new trends and inspiration, this time from fashion designers, beauty gurus and Instagram stars alike.

From a look “au naturel,” to glorious hair adornments and smoky eyes, brides will have lots of stunning choices to look forward to. Without any further ado, let’s cut to the chase and see how you can craft a perfect bridal look in the upcoming year based on several top tips by beauty experts!

Floral Galor

If you think that boho was beloved in 2016 and 2017, just wait to see the wave of spectacular bridal inventions this movement has inspired. It’s impossible to list them all, but some of the biggest trends will include feminine floral embroidery in dresses, transparent or otherwise, floral hair decoration, shoes with floral patterns and accessories such as earrings adorned with shapes from nature.

Glitter away

Just like the ‘80s have caused quite a stir in the modern fashion ranks, you can expect to see plenty of sparkle in the bridal ranks of 2018. But this particular beauty trend leaves plenty of room for experimenting since you can either go with a playful touch of glittery eyes with a shiny eyeshadow, or go with a full-blown glitter bomb and splash your dress with jewels and pearls, or anything in between.

Self-care front and center

Beauty in 2018 will be based on emphasizing and nourishing your natural look, and so the spotlight goes straight to choosing proper skincare and haircare items that will give you that rosy, radiant look and silky, smooth hair even before you choose your perfect wedding makeup. With rich ingredients ranging from Wasabi to Kakadu Plum, collections such as Aspect Dr. Skin Care boast a list of ingredients meant to boost your skin and hair health just before your big day. After that, makeup will be a breeze!  Bradley Estate Canton MA Wedding Portrait Session

Color blocking with lips

In addition to lush texture, plenty of bohemian input and obvious rebellion in the work of many bridal designers including Naeem Khan, you can see a bold approach with choosing the red lip to contrast the pure white of the dress. Yes, the classic red lip and the traditional white dress have been given a modern makeover, and you can feast your eyes on the results because you’ll want to try them all out. If red lipstick is already your favorite, why not find a shade that will give your wedding ensemble that color pop we all love and crave?

Braids, bows, and buns

This particular triple B hasn’t only ruled the runways, but it will be seen in many wedding looks worldwide, as another boho element, the braid, a fairytale bow and a classy bun all represent the bridal love for statement details. Long and intricate braids are perfect as an adornment to a sleek, simple dress, while a colorful bow may be your red lip contrast to break the all-white parade. As for buns, make it tall, sleek, low, or loose, it’s up to you, it’s minimalist and super simple to upgrade with:

Dazzling accessories

Unconventional chokers, intricate hair details, veil replacements, they will all be at the forefront of creating a perfect bridal beauty looks for 2018 with the right accessories! Statement earrings will be outshined by oversized necklaces, but the elegant choker is not going to give over its throne as the top pick for brides everywhere.

Black jewelry to accompany the pearl white dress is also going to be a favorite, but hair add-ons will be a top pick, no matter the length or color of your hair. Even if your dress is pure simplicity, fear not, because baubles of all sorts will come to the rescue!

"Getting an album was the very best decision. It wasn't until after my father passed away that I realized just how important those precious printed memories really are. "

When our wedding was postponed due to COVID a mere 3 days before our date, she called us immediately and showered us with well wishes...and worked with us to make sure we were able to secure her for our new date in August. 

"Best Decision!"

Kris mentioned to us just how gorgeous these albums are... but we really didn't realize it until we saw our own. These Albums are one of a kind. You won't find this quality anywhere else.
