Bridal make-up trend: simplicity
What are some of the make-up trends you’re seeing in bridal?
This year the make-up trend is classic, simple and natural. Many brides in 2012 are opting to stick with soft colours as opposed to 2011’s brighter and bolder colour choices. Simplicity is the general theme this year.
False lashes have always been very popular with brides and their bridal parties, and 2012 is certainly no exception. Although this year’s make-up choices are softer and more natural looking, lashes are definitely not being left out. Single lashes remain the most popular choice for many brides simply because they look very natural and are very easy to maintain.
Bridal hair trend: softer up’dos
What are some of the hair trends you’re seeing in bridal?
2012 has certainly been the year of the softer less put together up’do or hair style. Many brides are going with a style that doesn’t require a lot of attention or hairspray. Looser curls and messier looks are definitely the trend.
Prepping for the big day? How early do you recommend a bride get prepped for these services?
Generally, brides should color their hair one week before the wedding. Waxing, manicure and pedicures, eyebrows should all be done the week leading up to the wedding.
What should a bride pack in her emergency makeup & hair kit?
A bride’s emergency makeup and hair kit should consist of the following:
- Tissue paper – for those of joy
- Oil control blotting pads – to help eliminate oil and shine in the t-zone area
- Lipstick – for touch up’s
- Heitman Cosmetics HBalm lip balm – to help keep lips soft as well as seal in lipstick colour
- Hair serum – to help eliminate any fly away hair
Do you have a favorite bride moment/story from your past work?
I don’t think I could select a favorite bride or one story. All of the weddings I have worked on (and there have been many) have all been very special in their own unique way. I am always honored when I’m asked to work on someone’s wedding. Being a part of a milestone event is certainly something I take very seriously. Although all brides are unique, I always seem to share one very similar moment with all. It’s the moment when the bride tells me that she feels very relaxed in my chair. She lets out a big exhale and just enjoys her moment with confidence and ease. This is the best moment of all.
