Norfolk-based make-up artist Kirstie Barton-Grimley shares her insight into what's hot in the bridal beauty stakes for the year ahead.
She says: "The 2020 bridal catwalks have never looked so fresh and effortless. Undone updos, hair entwined with flowers, jewelled headbands and make-up with splashes of colour."
To help get you big-day ready, here are some of Kirstie's top trend alerts, tips and advice:
HAIR: Half-up and half-down, with loose beachy waves is still very much a trend for 2020. Statement flowers in the hair, bejewelled vintage pieces or beaded headbands are popular, along with relaxed braids flattened out. The bouffant, low pony tail with tendrils around the face looks very chilled and pretty. Add a ribbon tied low for hair that's fuss-free and out of the way so you can dance the night away.
MAKE-UP: The catwalks have been showing lots of dewy and glowing, hydrated, natural-looking skin. Colour's added with flushed cheeks and pink lips or berry shades to make more of a statement. Eyes are more nude with eyeliner in bold colours for the brave. Whatever style you like, here are my top tips to make sure you get the most out of your make-up trial:
DO research different bridal looks in wedding magazines, Instagram and Pinterest and take pictures with you so your make-up artist can visualise what you want.
DO ask as many questions as you like, even if they seem silly, as it will help build a picture of exactly what you're looking for.
DO ask for advice on how to improve your skincare routine in the lead up to the big day. We can recommend products to tackle any problems and treatments that might be beneficial.
DO keep an open mind and consider ideas your make-up artist may offer. We deal with hundreds of brides and different skin types and with the right consultation can help you look like the best version of you based on the best products, application and shades to suit your skin tone and eye colour.
DO make sure you have some top-up products for the day. I usually tell my brides to get their own lipstick colour, usually the same we've used at the trial or one very similar. I also recommend buying a translucent powder to use later in the day and for the evening celebration.
Above all make sure you find a hair and make-up artist you can bond with. It's one of the most important days of your life so you want people around you that make you feel relaxed in order to enjoy your wedding morning. Have a chat before booking a trial and go from there!
