New York International Bridal Week – Awesome Hair and Makeup Trends For 2013

We are coming off of one of the biggest weekends for the wedding industry: Bridal Fashion Week. Taking place in New York bi-annually, it attracts buyers, editors, bloggers, event designers and planners and showcases the most glamorous designs the bridal world has to offer. From the catwalk to the altar. It seems as couture fashion this season is all about “white lace and promises!” I love to see the hot trends on the runway and how they inspire real brides!

2013 New York International Fashion Bridal Week – Hair & Makeup Trends

 

The bridal industry is all about innovation, and Bridal Fashion Week highlights the trendsetting positioning and cutting-edge details that Bridal Makeovers exemplifies. Aradia of Bridal Makeovers takes trends that she sees on the runway, combines them with her imagination and then has her team replicate them for bridal clients. This season, designers unanimously returned to tradition with elegant lace, long sleeves, and classic silhouettes. There were fresh silhouettes, billowy ball gowns, and couture details. Here is the preview of next season’s hottest bridal hair and makeup trends—straight from the runway. And it doesn’t take much imagination to see these ethereal white creations walking down the aisle…

Bridal Market was this past weekend, and here are a few trends we’re seeing:

A memorable Bridal Fashion Week is winding down. The models have sashayed down the catwalks in the most exquisite gowns and the wedding industry collectively ‘ooed’ at the clouds of tulle, glamorous silks, satins, ruffles and intricate lace that graced the shows. Bridal beauty trends this year from the top designers – Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de la Renta, and Vera Wang included. When these couturiers recently hit New York to reveal their collections I not only became obsessed with what I saw on the runways (soft colors, dramatic ruffles, and sheer everything), I couldn’t wait to share with my brides the elements that will inspire their bridal looks. So take a peek at my favorite new looks from the hottest names in bridal, and check out the wedding beauty trends I am spotting now.

The Look: The fashion world was all aflutter last week as designer Monique Lhuillier presented her frothy confections of white lace, tulle, and satin floating down the runway. The models makeup looks were very dreamlike, ultra-feminine and sensual with different textures, ranging from shimmer to matte with sparse shimmer to pearly in shades of pretty peach with iridescence and taupes with coppery shimmers. I am enamored by these luscious looks. Continue Reading…

What Is Going On Now In The World of Bridal Beauty?

THE BIG TRESSES TREND

Natural bridal makeup looks outranked the bolder beauty looks that I have created so far this season. As far as hair, it seems that we’re experiencing an 80’s hair revival. Monumental manes in general are back but, this latest tidal wave is coming in a rich, deep brunette hue. The blonde-centric editorials and ads have been infiltrated with dark-coiffed models like Cheryl Cole, who is probably most recognized for her luscious, dark chocolate brown hair locks. She looks radiantly gorgeous in this pic (I can only imagine how many cans of L’Oreal hairspray this hairstyle took!) and now you too can have luscious brunette tresses. Because our brides are definitely worth it, we would like to show you too how you can show off your sultry side.

 

Today’s hottest bridal hair is very brunette and very big bombshell beauty.

Should I Or Shouldn’t I Wear False Eyelashes On My Wedding Day?

Lashes! Should I or shouldn’t I wear false eyelashes on my wedding day?

Accentuate Those Big Beautiful Eyes On Your Big Day!

 

Long and lush lashes will always be in. So yes, using them to accentuate those big beautiful eyes on your big day will make the big difference of night and day in your photos! The best part is if they are put on correctly you’ll still have them for your honeymoon. After all, eyelashes are an infallible, eternal method of seduction and they can never be long enough.

I know that in most cases, looking “fake” is a bad thing, but as many of you brides know, an exception to this golden rule are your eyelashes. With lashes, the bigger the better. False eyelashes provide a dramatic way to add length and volume to your natural lashes and enhance the entire look of your eye makeup.

I love to apply lashes on my brides. The individuals (clusters), half lash or wispy lashes are perfect for my brides who want to look like themselves but, with a little extra something. False eyelashes always complete the whole look on your wedding day even for brides that want look very soft and natural. You should know that even my most beautifully blended smokey eyes would look somewhat incomplete if they were created without adding those long, gorgeous lashes. Therefore dear brides, wearing false eye lashes will definitely make your eyes look more beautiful. There are so many styles out there in the world of lashes – if applied correctly they can look natural and stay in place. I have never had a bride cry so much that her lashes come off.

False eyelashes have gained popularity not only among the celebrities but also among brides. Available in various styles, colors, and sizes, false eyelashes instantly give a mysterious and alluring look to your eyes by making the eyelashes look longer, thicker and fuller. Continue Reading…

In Honor of the Royal Wedding…

The date of the Royal Wedding – Friday, 29th April – is inching ever closer… How will Kate Middleton’s makeup measure up to history?

Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton – Just a little powder to kill the shine would have not  hurt here…

It has been reported that she will be doing her own makeup on the big day, however, she has decided to take private lessons with a professional makeup artist. I applaud her for this decision at least. I always inform my brides that if they insist on doing their own makeup for their weddings,  that a lesson or two is crucial to a photo ready look.

With 1,900 guests in attendance and the eyes of the world set to be upon her, Kate Middleton’s ‘bridal makeup look’ will be scrutinized in fashion magazines and the web for months to come. Wouldn’t you want your wedding day makeup to be absolutely flawless? I hope Kate practiced everything she learned in her makeup lessons and I hope that she will not be so nervous that she forgets everything! A little back up assistance wouldn’t hurt though,  especially for the touch-ups. Good luck Kate!

Brides throughout history have used makeup to enhance their looks. Royal Brides of the past used cosmetic formulas that were also used in aphrodisiacs. However, vanity was still an issue, so cosmetics still had a place on the face. The ancient Romans believed a woman without paint is like food without salt.

Moral of the story… Most women think they know how to do their own makeup. They’ll do it every day and they’ll think it looks good. But what you see face-to-face, and what the camera sees, are two different things. Hiring someone with a professional makeup background who understands how makeup reads in a photograph is an advantage.

If you prefer to do it yourself… Learning how to create a photo ready makeup look is a valuable skill that will empower your beauty and self confidence on your big day and any other time you want to create a special look for your self.
