Makeup Trends 2012

What an amazing wedding season we've had this year so far! It's been so fun to be part of one of the most important days these couples will ever have together.

Blushing brides, crazy-fun bridesmaids and mothers of the brides have all been part of our year so far and we get excited for each new wedding because everyone is so unique and beautiful!

This year, makeup trends have taken a bit of a turn and we are loving it! Brides are thinking out of the box and letting their true selves shine through, and we see it reflected in their makeup styles too!

More than ever this year, we've seen lipstick make a comeback rather than just lip gloss and it's so much fun to play with more colour options and lipstick has the staying power advantage over lip glosses.

Also, lashes!! We've seen the most amazing lashes this year and we love when the girls get so excited when we show them their final look in the mirror complete with lashes. I would say 90% of the time we get the same response, "wow, they look so real!" Lashes can be as subtle as simply enhancing what you already have, or they can accentuate and make your eyes bold!

 Some colour trends this year have been golds and champagnes. So pretty, so classic, yet so much versatility. We've also played with bold eyes using carbon, coppers and greys.

We got the opportunity to do makeup for an amazing photo shoot together with The Southern Suite focusing on an organic theme and this beautiful green eye popped and added an earthy tone to the look.

We strive for each bride and their wedding party to walk away confident and excited about their makeup. Whether they wanted to just enhance their natural look, or go completely opposite of what they normally do. In the end, we want to see each beauty happy and excited to enjoy the amazing day ahead of them.
