The bridal beauty trends for 2017 are all about naturally chic looks. Brides will look to enhance their best features with discreet yet effective styling.

On 2017 bridal collection catwalks make-up and hair has taken a step back with gowns given the prime focus. The more elaborate the gown, the less intense the make-up and the simpler the hairstyle.

On the catwalks the main bridal beauty trends for 2017 have been…

2017 Wedding Hairstyle Trends

Polished Braided Chignons and Face-Framing Halos

Stylish and romantic. Achieve this look by using dry texture spray, crimping and then brushing out, before starting to braid.

Relaxed, Effortlessly Tousled Hairstyles

The runways are full of ‘done-undone’ styles. Think boho waves, slightly messy updos and gentle strands framing the face. Contemporary and laid-back hairstyles go well even with more elaborate dresses. This is perfect if you’re thinking of modern fuss-free bridal hair.

A Braid Maze

Fuller and bigger looking chignons but a sleek, fuss-free front keeping all the action at the back.


Nothing too structured, and frayed around the face to complement the natural features.

2017 Bridal Make-Up Trends

Minimal Lips

Rosy lip stain is enough for the soft, romantic look. I often use a dusky, rosy lip pencil to fill out the lip and top up with tinted lip balm to add a subtle, moist finish. This gives a gentle lip colour.

Gentle Smokey Eyes with a Fresh, Natural Face

Keeping the eyes focused with a smokey look to make them stand out while giving the skin a soft-focus radiance.

Radiant and Dewy Skin

Achieve bridal dewiness using highlighters and sculpting products. My favourite is Hourglass Illume Sheer Colour Trio in Sunset. This makes the skin glow with a healthy radiance and does not overpower with too much shine.

Subtly Defined Eyes

To keep the minimal make-up trend going, natural hues of brown on the eyes creates subtle definition. You must use black mascara however, as brown mascara doesn’t give as much effective definition.

Good luck planning your 2017 wedding and enjoy trying out the latest make-up and hair trends.
