Fall Bridal Makeup Trends

October 19th, 2012

While in some parts of the United States it feels more like Summer than Fall, Fall is here and that means lots of changes. Changes in the weather, changes in clothing and of course, changes in makeup!

For those brides that are planning and having Fall weddings, it’s important to know what the latest Fall bridal makeup trends are and how to incorporate them in your bridal makeup look.

Wine Stained Lips
While red lips are still in for Fall, a new lip color has come on the scene. Wine is making a big splash and adds a bit of drama to any look. How to effectively use this in your own bridal makeup look? Use a stain as opposed to an all out matte color. By dabbing a bit of a wine stain and toning down the rest of your look, you will have a romantic wedding day look.

Kohl Rimmed Eyes
Smoky charcoal eyes were seen everywhere on the catwalk. However that may not translate so well on the bridal pictures. How can this work for your bridal makeup look? Simple. Instead of using black or dark charcoal, simply use a gray shadow and you can use it on just the lids instead of all the way around the eyes. Paired with a soft pink cheek and lip, you have a defined yet ethereal look.

Multi Toned Eyes
While the majority of the runway looks utilized bright colors, bridal makeup looks need to be suitable for the setting and time of day. I have found using more neutral versions of the brighter colors (eggplant instead of purple, navy instead of cobalt, emerald instead of kelly green). Or using a liner in the toned down version is another great option.


Whether you decide to use one (or all!) of these trends, always let your inner beauty shine. If for whatever reason you are unsure, hiring a bridal makeup artist is great way to take all the stress and pressure off and allow you to enjoy your day!
