Celebrity makeup artists reveal the biggest bridal beauty trends for 2019
blog img By Vogue | 1 August, 2019

If 2018 was anything to go by, bridal beauty looks are moving from tried and tested to experimental.

Case in point: Deepika Padukones matte-finished look for her Lake Como wedding. On the other hand, Priyanka Chopra Jonas stuck to her less is more guns, while Sonam Kapoors look spelled the quintessential Indian bride. But one thing they all did was set the tone for the brides of the coming year.

Whether you have just cemented your relationship with a roka or nearing your makeup trail for the big day, this 2019 forecast by celebrity makeup artists is the place to start to switch up your bridal beauty game. Feminine yet empowering, traditional yet contemporary the multifarious scarlet pout has many connotations attached to it. In fact, nothing pulls your look together like a timeless red lip a trick style icons, old and new, have known all too well.

Sonam Kapoors makeup artist Namrata Soni also reinforces the power of red lips, elaborating, While 2018 saw a lot of neutrals, nude lips, and smokey eyes, I think red matte lipstick is going to make a big comeback in 2019. For me, classic red lips paired with subtle highlighter on the skin is the best way to go for brides. Soni also points out that silver cat-eyes will be in trend a look we spotted on Anushka Sharma during the promotions of her film Zero recently. You may not want to consider it for the wedding day, but I recommend you to experiment with a silver foil effect for your cocktail or reception.

Ever since Anushka Sharma pared down makeup for her nuptials in Tuscany, Italy, broke the internet, an au naturel complexion has been the Holy Grail formula for brides to be. Do not believe us? Hear it from her trusted makeup artist Puneet B Saini, who believes that the power of less is certainly more. I feel the skin is not paid enough attention to. Fresh and flawless face should be the order of the day for brides in 2019.

A fail proof way to ensure a luminous finish is to create a healthy canvas for your foundation and makeup by prepping with the right primer or even gentle exfoliating peel pads. Enhance your bridal glow by beautifully yet mindfully highlighting and contouring the face, she adds. We live in a world full of Instagram brows and OTT highlighter. But even maximalist brides across the world have been enamored by Meghan Markles soft, radiant and most importantly, not-covering her freckles makeup.

Closer to home, celebrity makeup artist, Deepa Varma, has always been a loyalist of understated, skin first look. Her advice is to embrace your real beauty by keeping the fragility and delicate vibe of a bride. The big trend she is hoping people leave behind: the dated, overdone contoured and cut face. Glowing skin should be a brides priority, as people are not interested in looking like painted masks anymore. While you may have an affinity for a vibrant lip color or shadow, shade-match your foundation to ensure that your skin still looks like skin. Changing your skin color or lightening your complexion is a strict no no, she concludes.
