Top Trends for Bridal 2015 Beauty

Brides are now considering since it is their special day they want to simply look like their best selves, instead of looking too overdone with elaborate makeup techniques. 2015 bridal makeup is kept very natural and well blended. The hair is styled down more than up. If hair is styled up then it’s loose and relaxed.


Soft Eyes: Silver metallic eye shadows, nude shadows, and matte shades are very popular for bridal eyes.

Lips: Lips are either kept light with a soft pink or make a statement in red or a powerful pink.

Thick Brows: Years ago brides opted for thinner brows, but for 2015 bridal brows go bold.


Relaxed and Romantic Hair
: Bridal 2015 hair simply flows in bountiful waves and curls giving brides a relaxed look.

Intricate Braids
: Either one large braid or small braids that wrap around the head or bun. Braids communicate romance and on her special day- romance is all a bride wants!

Curls and Waves: Bridal hair is barely ever kept straight. To evoke the romantic look every bride wants on her special day, waves and curls are usually styled into the hair.

Classic Bun: The bun, either positioned on the crown of the head or as a low bun, is remaining a staple through 2015 for bridal hair trends. Update the look by adding a simple braid to the side of the head and tuck it away into the bun.

French Twist: Another staple for bridal beauty that still holds true in 2015. Add floral decals around the top and sides of twist for an enchanted feel.

Top Trends for Bridal 2015 Fashion

Less Lace: More netted and sheer materials for a barely there effect.

Mesh: Mesh materials are becoming popular for special occasion gowns. Silver mesh dresses resemble what a knight would wear under his armor, an intrinsically royal look.

Tulle Overlays: Detachable tulle overlays allow the bride to wear the overlay during the ceremony to add drama then she can remove the overlay for the reception like the one designed by ERSA to reveal a simple flesh toned lace dress adorned with crystals and pearls.

Illusions: Sheer material over the décolleté and arms; illusions cover the usual exposed parts of a body in a dress for a more refined bridal look.

Boleros: Usually made of lace or fur, are a cropped over piece for a wedding dress that covers otherwise exposed shoulders.

Floral inspirations: Floral patterns sewn into the dress, like the long train with rose petal decals from Escala Berazza. Or layers on the dress structured to resemble particular flowers.

Long Veils: Simple, long veils ranging from white and off white with just an outline of lace trim.

Birdcages: Ultra glamorous shortened versions of a veil that sit on top of the head and covers just the face. Most brides are wearing a veil for the ceremony then a birdcage for the reception.

Pockets: Some bridal dresses like the ones from Anne Barge featured bridal dresses that have pockets sewn in. This is great for the bride who wants to feel relaxed and comfortable on her special day.

Deep V Cuts: Bridal dresses plunged with deep V’s on the neckline and on the back exposing the bride’s bare back.

Color: True white colored dresses are coming becoming more popular for 2015. Two-toned dresses and blush tones are also in demand. Brides are becoming more daring and opting for a colored bridal dress.
