The Biggest Bridal Beauty Trends Of 2018


With the royal wedding behind us (and still fresh in our brains), we're officially in nuptial mode. While this time of year is always considered wedding season, there's something extra-special in the air thanks to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's big day. To keep the momentum going, we're gonna talk all things bridal beauty. We've scoured our sources for the biggest trends in hair, makeup and nails that you can expect to see all season long. So, brides-to-be, listen up!


Hair Combs

This old-school hair trend had a moment during fashion month in February, but it's back in full force for brides this spring. Opting for a vintage hair comb or a more modern version is a great alternative to the traditional tiara.


Messy Updos

This trend is not exactly new, but worth a mention thanks to its staying power. Slightly undone updos serve as the perfect understated complement to power style moves like a vibrant lipstick or extravagant accessory.


Tousled Waves

It's all about volume—and lots of it—this year. Tousled and teased is the way to go these days, as opposed to the more defined and proper ringlets of the past.


Extra Highlighter

What better day to get your glow on than your wedding day? Highlight everything from your collarbone to your shoulders and show it all off.


Glossy Lips

We knew the day would come when matte lips would be a thing of the past, and that day is here. Glossy pouts are shining bright this wedding season and ready to be smooched at the altar.


Long Lashes

Larger-than-life lashes are what 2018 brides are all about. Now whether you opt for mascara, falsies or extensions is entirely up to you. Just make sure your lashes are long and full!


Champagne Nails

For a slight metallic sheen, this nail color is actually beautiful for brides and their bridal party. Cheers to that.

Light Pink Nails

It'll be an interesting day when light hues of pink are no longer the go-to nail look for brides-to-be. Until then, we'll bask in their dainty beauty.
