5 Designer Make-Up Trends To Inspire Your Wedding Day Look

Your make-up is an important part of your wedding look, and you might want to mix it up and do something slightly different with your make-up style. There was lots of inspiration for brides to be found on the catwalks of New York, London and Paris, in a range of looks from bare skin to bold colours. While you might think the looks might be a bit OTT for your wedding day, you can make them subtle, like choosing a darker lipstick or doing something different with your eye make-up. Check out these five 2016 make-up trends that might inspire your wedding day make-up!

Going Natural

Many design houses opted for a natural, effortless face for their 2016 shows. The ideas is to look slightly groomed, but with minimal effort. This look is perfect for beach brides or at a rustic wedding where over done make-up will look out of place. Alexander McQueen SS16. Make-up by Lucia Pieroni

Statement lips

This isn't a look every woman can carry off, but designers including Miu Miu wanted to make a statement on the catwalk in their 2016 shows. Dark lips are perfect for the bride who is having a gothic wedding, or is one for the bride that wants to liven up a simple dress. Opt for deep berry tones, or bold reds for lips that everyone will notice.

Bare Faces

Backstage at the 2016 shows, make-up artists worked on creating fresh, dewy complexions with minimal coverage. In fact, at the Public School show all the models needed to be runway-ready was a quick facial! For brides who aren't comfortable with wearing lots of make-up and have gorgeous skin, then this look is for you - less is certainly more!

70s Glam

This is a big look for 2016, and the it is a big contrast to the more natural looks. Designers including Diane von Furstenberg took some inspiration from Studio 54 with bright colours on eyelids and lashes. 70s glam is perfect for the bold bride who wants to add some wow factor, or you could tone it down by adding some subtle sparkle to the eyes.

Boho Chic

The 70s look also made an appearance in catwalk shows in a doll-like look of exaggerated and deconstructed lashes. Perfect for the festival loving bride, you can go as heavy or as easy with the eyeliner as you like.
