Wedding Makeup Trends to Try
1. Dewy Skin and Nude Tones
While the bold looks will forever remain a classic, everyone is slowly becoming obsessed with the dewy skin. Since it’s the most sought after makeup at the moment, it’s the perfect look to recreate for the big day.
Nude lips complement best with a dewy face but you can experiment with various eye shadows as well. Curate eye catching and slay worthy looks with SAPPHIRE’s extensive range of cosmetics.
2. Glass Skin Base and Kohl Rimmed Eyes
Everyone is replacing full coverage with glass skin for a fresh-faced appearance. Pair your look with kohl-rimmed eyes to achieve that traditional twist and dab a creamy highlighter for that shiny effect!
This look will perfectly match all your ivory and pastel outfits and is ideal to recreate for both daytime and nighttime wedding looks.
3. Gently Sculpted and Blushed
Brushed up brows and rosy cheeks make for a great minimal look. Shimmery pink tones on the lips and eyes with gentle sculpt and soft contour makes for a gorgeous snatched up glam for anyone who wants to nail a subtle yet trendy look.
Mauve pink lips with shimmery eyes, and a bit of smudged eyeliner, provides just the right amount of glam which will look great on every skin tone.
4. Glammed Makeup with Statement Blurred Lips
When in doubt, go full glam with dramatic eyes and neutral or bold lips! If you are a makeup maximalist then you will love this glam makeup wedding look with some false lashes and dark eye shadow. Exude confidence with statement lips emphasizing your radiant contoured skin!
To achieve the blurred lips effect, simply dab some lipstick on your lips and get the result. This look is perfect for all your pre-wedding festivities and even the main events. Make sure to use cream-based products and prep your skin well to make your makeup long-lasting.
5. Juicy Skin and Glossy Pout!
Matte lips look fine but the lipstick cracks over time and lips begin to feel dry! Ditch the matte and be a gloss queen with SAPPHIRE’s lip gloss. Glossy lips look luscious, plump and fuller, which is why they are perfect. And while you’re at it don’t forget to have a natural, glowy sheen skin that looks quite natural with dark underlined and defined eyes.
Trending Wedding Nail Designs and Ideas
One of the little details that can make a big difference on wedding day is your nails. And even though we know you’ve got hefty tasks to complete besides a manicure, glammed-up nails are equally important to subtly complement your ensemble.
There are a bunch of different ways you can play with your nail art during this festive season. Turn to these five wedding nail ideas for inspiration. After all, that fourth finger on your left with the engagement ring will be getting some severe spotlight!
1. Strawberry Milkshake
Manis like glazed donut nails, ultimate Barbie pink nails, aura nails and lip gloss nail trends have indeed become the talk of the town but more recently ‘strawberry milkshake’ nails are reigning supremacy. This trend requires minimal effort and will give you a highly manicured look perfect for attending a summer wedding, these are perfect. Start off with a white base, then apply your pink nail or juiciest berry shade paint away from the cuticles. You can even opt for sheer pink hues for that milky appearance. Finally, seal the deal with the top coat!
2. Cinnamon Glaze Nails
A soft glossy look, combining natural hues with a shimmery finish, cinnamon glazed nails are delicate and look magnificent! Start off with a natural shade of brown from SAPPHIRE Nail Polishes as the base paint and then top coat it with a semi-sheer chrome paint for that glazed look. Double coat it to achieve the perfect glazed feel!
3. Chrome French tips
Firstly, if you are going to opt for long nails or short wedding nails for the wedding, make sure your nail shape accentuates your overall look. Simple and sleek milky white, French white lines are an easier way to play with the usual French tip look. However, you can go for some wedding nail art with gel polishes using a striper brush to outline the tip. Then, don’t forget to seal the design with a top coat.
4. Minimal Manicures
Forego the nail trends and opt for minimal nail inspo! Choose from our varying range of nail colors, depending on what best matches your aesthetic. From classic red to gold or silver the options are endless!
5. Chocolate Brownie Nails
Think: chrome meets rich brown. These are the perfect autumnal nails and for good reason. The rich brown colour brings a gradient of hues that look ravishing. Explore our shades of browns to find your best pick!
