Were always covering the latest and greatest bridal trends on the Wonderland blog, and today were covering bridal hair and makeup trends of 2017-2018! So, what are brides pinning and bringing to life this season in the beauty industry?
Now more than ever, brides want to look less done up, and more like themselves. An amped up version of themselves, if you will. A classic bun, whether it be high up on your head or lower down on your head is what were hearing a lot more brides doing. Keep it simple and keep it classy.
Its sad for us to report that flower crowns are officially out. As much as we loved the flower crown trend over the summer, its not a trend that will be making an appearance in the upcoming bridal season. Replace flower crowns with babys breath or other flower embellishments instead.

Just because flower crowns are out, doesnt mean we cant still get our boho on. So, what is a tousled wave? Think Gisele Bundchen and Blake Lively hair. Effortless looking waves that bring body and volume to a brides hair all day long. This is a great trend for brides. Bridesmaids traditionally love to throw a braid or two in their hair. Whether it be a fishtail braid, french braid or small braids throughout tousled hair, braids will never go out of style.

Brides naturally glow on their wedding day, but were seeing more and more dewy brides thanks to the latest and greatest beauty hacks and trends emerging out there. Not only does a dewy look plump hydrated skin its also a marked sign of youthsomething we all want.
With every dewy bride comes a love for highlighting. Take those rose-flushed cheeks to the next level with a touch of highlighter to complete your bridal look. Highlighter brings an automatic Instagram filter to your face, and who doesnt want that? Our favorite highlighter comes from Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Spring/summer was all about bold pops of color, but as we enter into the fall/winter wedding season, were hearing more and more brides opting for a nude lip! Originally, a nude lip was applied to downplay bigger makeup moments like a smoky eye or lengthy lashes, but nude is taking center stage this season.
We cover a lot of topics on the Wonderland blog and today, we stepped a little bit out of our comfort zone, but not without some help from Gizella of GEMakeup Artistry and Hair. Our bridal stylists and brides have been working with Gizella for about 3 years now, and its safe to say she knows her stuff!
GEMakeup Artistry and Hair offers on site makeup/hair services for any special occasion, so we knew Gizella was just the person to interview. Here's what she had to say about the latest and greatest makeup trends of the season.
- Nude Lips
"This past year has been all about the fresh, dewy skin and soft smoky eyes. The colors most commonly asked to be included in brides color palette was a light champagne for the lid and a burgundy hue for the crease. Most common photos shown were that of Blake Lively, Miranda Kerr and of course Carrie Underwood." - Gizella, GEMakeup Artistry and Hair.
