Bridal trends 2018.

The wedding season is here and so are the different bridal looks of the season.

Weddings are once in a lifetime event for most of the people and therefore every bride wants to look her best on her big day. From ethereal dresses to extravagant jewelry, nothing looks complete without “the” perfect makeup.

So to make things more easy and less stressful here are some of the most done, seen and clicked pictures of the makeup trends of 2018.

Fresh face look-Not long ago did we see Anushka Sharma rocking the fresh face makeup for almost all events of her wedding. She kept it simple and minimalistic to the core .From her eyes to her lips everything was kept neutral, natural and nude. And did the makeup police approve it? Well yes! The fresh face was a big hit this season .From international runways to the desi brides, almost everyone was swoon over by it.

 The Bronzed goddess– Recently when Depika donned on the exquisite white chikankari demi sari she made sure that she looked like a goddess. Rather than going for an over the top look with the over the top dress she decided to bronze things a bit and of course she made a statement. From bronzing the cheeks and forehead to adding warm tones to the eyes the look was kept such that it exuded the goddess vibes and also did not take the attention from the extravagant attire.

The No Makeup look– We are still not over with the royal wedding of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. Not only were the dresses absolutely stunning and gorgeous there was also one thing that was very noticeable. Her makeup .Priyanka went for a no makeup look for both the Hindu and the Christian wedding .The warm eye look helped to balance the softness of her fresh skin. As for her lips, the makeup artist gave Chopra a subtle red stain, a color she typically wears on the red carpet. Letting the dress take the limelight her makeup was kept to the basic for the occasions making this dusky beauty look ethereal in her own skin.

Smokey blown out look– This year was a year of mainly the fresh, natural and no-makeup makeup looks. From runway to the red carpet and on the brides as well this was the most photographed look of the year. But this has also not prevented the makeup lovers from keeping the smoky look alive.Although there was a slight variation. Rather than the strong smoky tape shaped eyes that was the trend till last year this year the makeup junkies opted for a more blown out look. This look not only accentuates the eyes but also makes you look years younger.




Is oodles of mascara,7 pumps of foundation and heavily kholed eye,and Oh! how to forget ounces of highlighter your “ritual” makeup routine?
Then you definitely need to check out this post!
In the beginning of 2018, Instagram was filled with women flaunting heavily smoked eyes and tons of highlighter. Standing right in the direction where the sun shone the brightest ,these pictures gave out so much ‘radiance’ that there was even a slight chance that you might get blind in one eye!
But just as fashion trends change every season,so does makeup.
And in the spring/summer 2018 shows in New York ,THIS is exactly what happened.
Everyone from Victoria Beckham to Alexander Wang confirmed that “NO MAKEUP” was the new trend.

In fact Lizo,the lead make-up artist for Nars quoted “Think of this make-up as a good reality check for all the heavy social media make-up”.And when a trend hits the floors of the VICTORIA BECKHAM/ALEXANDER WANG show,what are the odds that it will not be a hit.That season people witnessed models rocking a completely bare face with just as much highlighting on the bridge of the nose and cupid’s bow that it looked like the inner radiance shining outside.
“This look is all about skincare” explained Pat McGrath who was the head artist for the Victoria Beckham show.”Its a very fresh,very natural look.It sure involves grooming but the look is very natural” she continues to explain revealing that the team applied beige liner on the eyes,a touch of gold highlighter and a stroke of lip balm.

At the ALEXANDER WANG show that season,things were no different.”It is all about celebrating the models’ individual beauty” said Diana Kendell who only used colours to enhance their features and even out the complexion.

Since then the makeup trends that hit not only the runway but also events such as MET GALA,OSCARS etc were focused largely on keeping it natural,simple and minimalist, thus, emphasizing on a concentrated skin care routine,because good skin doesn’t come easy.

Here are some tips to get the RUNWAY LIKE FRESH FACE LOOK in just 5 minutes:
1. MOISTURIZE~ THIS step should be your skin care ritual.It is not only important to moisturize your skin before this look but, it is even more important to keep your skin moisturized throughout the day and especially at night.

2. CONCEAL~ The next important step is to conceal.Even though we are looking at a no makeup look, but concealing your under eye is important to give your eyes the necessary lift, so that ,they don’t look droopy and tired.

3. FOUNDATION~ For this look I would suggest you go for a powder foundation. But if you have a dry skin,the powder WILL make it worse and therefore, go for a mousse foundation.

4. BLUSH~ Since we are going for a no makeup look,a slight pink/orange or brown blush would be enough to give the required definition.

5. NUDE LIPS~ For this look I would suggest to use just a good quality lip balm.However a brown/natural pink shade can also be used.

6. MASCARA~ We DON’T need oodles of mascara for this look.Just 1-2 strokes on the upper lashes and you are good to go.

7. NO LINER~ If you are someone for whom liner is as important as oxygen then a brown liner just along the upper lashes will help you survive the day.
