Nov 01, 2013 11:38 PM EDT
It's the season of engagements! It seems like so many couples are taking the next step towards 'I do.' From Lauren Conrad, to Naya Rivera, Scarlett Johansson, Ginnifer Goodwin, Ashley Tisdale, Ciara, and Kim Kardashian, many stars are planning to become blushing brides. But based on 2014 wedding trends, they might wanna lay off the blush a bit.
Following the minimal makeup trend we've been seeing since the summer and well into the fall, the bridal trend for 2014 is natural. Professional makeup artist, Jules Cardozo-Marsh agrees. With twelve years' experience, Jules has worked with countless brides and some of the world's biggest brands, including Guess, Puma, and L'Oreal.
Jules explained the look many brides will be sporting down the aisle to Beauty4Media. "The 2014 bridal look is all about effortlessly chic, effervescent beauty: enhancing a bride's best features so she looks and feels like the most gorgeous version of herself when she walks down the aisle."
Now while we have a whole set of tips on how to achieve the best nude makeup for that barely there bombshell look, the real key to this wedding trend is naturally great skin.
"In order to achieve the naturally beautiful look that so many brides are asking for, I give my clients proper instruction on health and skincare so that by the time their wedding comes around, they really are glowing," the makeup artist explained.
We couldn't agree more. Among the crazy wedding planning, skin care should be top of mind for every bride. And the beauty of it all, besides the flawless complexion you'll have? A skin care routine can cost next to nothing using DIY facials, exfoliants, and emollients.
You don't have to spend a penny to look just as fabulous as a Hollywood star. Try a Hot Towel Treatment, Kitchen Cabinet Skin Care, Coconut Oil, Honey Masks, White and Green Tea, Neem, and Matcha natural skin care tips to see which works best for you and your budget.
Skin care is the true focal point for this latest bridal trend and the key to looking your best on the big day. "Beauty is much more than how a bride is made up," Jules said. "Plenty of water, a consistent skincare routine and, of course, that irresistible glow that calm and happy brides have on the happiest day of their life, all contribute to the overall result."
And keep the pampering going right until you're dressed in your wedding best! "On the day, I make sure they feel relaxed and pampered with a de-stressing facial and eye massage, and provide them with a mini touch-up beauty kit for peace of mind." Who knew preppering for a wedding could be this easy?
