The latest hair and make-up trends for 2022

Pink wedding dress What are the latest wedding hair and make-up trends?

"Brides-to-be are now opting for more natural-looking skin. This is ideal for those who don’t wear much make-up and can be created by layering products such as oils and serums before applying foundation. Carefully placed highlighter will catch the light in the right places giving your skin a youthful glow. A soft natural hairstyle will complete this look, either soft curls with half pinned up or a low bun with loose tendrils. A sultry eye can help add something a little bit extra to a more natural look. Using soft brown matte eyeshadows with an added touch of shimmer on the lid can make a difference. This could then be finished with a nude lip. Softly contoured make-up can show off your cheekbones. This can still work with a more natural look by keeping the cheeks radiant with a cream rouge and a touch of highlighter.

"Hollywood glamour is also popular. Beautifully sculptured waves with simple nude eye make-up and a statement lip colour can look incredible.

"Lashes and brows are still a big focus. Not everyone is blessed with luscious long lashes, so sometimes we need a little help. If you’re planning to have individual lash extensions, it’s a good idea to try them first to make sure you’re happy with the finished look. An alternative option is to have lashes applied on the day by your make-up artist, which you could try out when you have your trial. Nicely groomed brows will help shape your face and make your eyes stand out, so make sure you have them tidied! Any eyebrow shaping or lamination should be done with plenty of time for any skin irritation to calm down.

"A new trend is the ponytail. When dressed with the right accessories, this can look elegant and effective. Simple, large plaits with loose tendrils, dressed with a hair vine is also becoming more popular for the year ahead.

"Make sure you use the time before your wedding to experiment with different ideas so that you can approach the day knowing that you are comfortable with the style you’ve chosen."
