The hair and makeup looks that come off the Fashion Week runways are often innovative and phenomenal, but also quite exaggerated and excessive, which makes them hard to incorporate into an everyday look. But every now and then a few original takes on beauty show up on the runway that not only feel wearable but doable as well. The looks from the spring 2019 showcases were a combination of the two, some over the top, some attainable, but all worth your attention. Listed below are some of the best 2019 beauty trends you will be seeing everywhere the next season:

Fierce and feminine makeup

 

Soft and subtle looks appeared on the runway in more ways than one. Some designers opted for a smooth porcelain complexion paired with a monochromatic pale pink look, from a single-toned eyeshadow to just a hint of magenta on the center of the lip and a few coats of matching mascara to add a pop of color. Others chose delicate hues of lilac and purple in the form of subtle cat eye looks in order to accentuate the model’s eyes in the most feminine way.

Bold dark choices

On the other side of the spectrum, some designers went for dramatic, dark looks that make a bold statement. The smoky eye has been reinvented this season and it graced the runways in the form of daring, graphic eyes carefully smudged at the edges in order to achieve the iconic smoky look. A few unexpected black lips were seen, drawn on in a feminine shape and drenched in high shine lip gloss. A darkly romantic look and a perfect take on the usually strictly alternative black lipstick.

High shine nails in glitter and gloss

 

From practical ovals to low square tips, all kinds of manicure designs were seen on the runway this season, ranging in colors from simple neutrals to rich jewel tones. But one undeniable trend was surely the abundance of glitz and shine. Stunning high gloss finishes were all over the runways, along with mesmerizing glitters strategically placed on the tip of the nail, and even bejeweled nails and fingers showcasing various crystals and stones. So find some great nail salons nearby and welcome the new season with a fresh, trendy and incredibly shiny manicure.

Intricate temporary tattoos

Tattoos are not the first thing that pops into your mind when you think about high fashion, but they were gracing the runways this season in the most beautiful ways. Drawn on the skin almost as an extension of the elaborate lacing that embellished the designs, these tattoos were placed on the necks, shoulders and torsos of select models, creating a unique fashion statement. With the minimalistic body art trend holding its popularity to this day, these intricate designs propose a more elegant alternative to the usual simplistic line art tattoos of today.

Party-ready beach waves

 

A new take on the ever popular trend of subtle beach waves was introduced on the runways this season. The models’ hair was teased messily and curled into matte, windswept strands in order to create this effortless effect. The hairstylists truly played up the fluff and let loose hair strands hang rogue, trying to achieve this naturally beautiful vacation look of a model with soft and voluptuous hair who just got back from the beach.

Unexpected hair accessories

 

Hair accessories are gaining popularity this season as more and more designers opt for extraordinary embellishments. A large variety of accessories were seen, from face-framing headscarves reminiscent of Jackie O to beautiful velvet ribbons in mustard yellow and deep red which were perfectly positioned on messy buns and ponytails. But romantic florals strategically gracing the models’ hairstyles was the look that truly stole the show this season. Whether they were tucked into elaborate veiled updos or piled into loose lengths, these fresh flowers in various shades of crimson, fuchsia and peach instantly transformed the models into romantic fairytale characters.

9 Expert Tips for Perfect Wedding Day Hair

A wedding is one of the most significant milestones in anyone’s life. So, this goes without saying that you will want to achieve perfection on that day. It is true that most of us turn to the Pinterest for wedding day inspirations. You will find hairstyles for every type of bride there.

 

But getting inspirations and actually donning the perfect hair are two very separate things. Most of us have the tendency to go for rigorous dieting or a dedicated skincare regime before the wedding, but very few us give our tresses that much of a thought though our hair is equally important.

Your mane plays an important role in determining your looks and thus under no circumstances, you can ignore them. Here are some of the ways in which you can get the desirable hair of your choice on your big day.

  1. Cleaning Makes It Happy and Look Great – In order to remove the product and oil build-up, you should use a clarifying shampoo and that, too, not more than once a week for cleaning hair. You should also use the shampoo just the night before the wedding so that any style can be set.
  2. Keep Your Color and Cut on Schedule – You must go for scheduling a cut about two and half weeks prior to the big day which leaves time for it to grow back.  In case of hair color, you should try to keep up with a routine.  For the highlights, you can wait for about 2-3 weeks before the D-day for the touchup. You should also give some time for the colors to set in so that you can get the natural look on your big day.
  3. Don’t Rule Anything Out – There are a plethora of options to consider at the time preparing your wedding day hair. Just because your hair is super-curly, and you always wear it in a high bun does not mean that the soft finger waves are completely off the table. So irrespective of whether your hair is pin straight, loose, curly or body-waved or a combination of any or all of these, you can still get the hair that you dreamed of as the experts will be taking care of your hair.
  4. Maintenance – There are a lot of women who want to grow their hair longer for their wedding.  But it can happen that you grow your hair and on the D-day when you give your hair-stylist a picture of the style that you want, you realize that it is from the time when your hair was shorter and hence won’t suit you now. This is quite a common phenomenon and that is why your hair color and style have to be fixed about a month before your wedding and the last trim and color should be about 10 days before the wedding. You should never make any major changes to your hair before the wedding.
  5. Consider Keratin Treatments – It is tough to create a style that will last for more than 10 hours of day and night celebration, no matter how good your stylist is. If you hate to see the hair crease or get frizzy, you should consider going for keratin treatment about a couple of weeks before the wedding. This will keep the frizz down by straightening the roots.
  6. Don’t Use Any Leave-Ins, Conditioner or Oils – No matter how tangled, limp or frizzy your hair is and in spite of how tempted you feel to go for the leave-in treatments or switch to deep or oil conditioner you should just stay away from them on your wedding day. The second-day hair is best for holding styles. So, you can use these products about a couple of days before the wedding in order to get the desired results.
  7. Go for Hair Extensions – The clip-in hair extensions happen to be the best hair extensions that can be used, and they should weigh between 160-180 gms. Your head will feel heavy for anything more than that. You should choose a color that is closest to the hair or the hair endings. Before the wedding, you should prepare the extensions and so spray them and brush them every day. Otherwise, they will look fake and won’t look soft and beautiful.
  8. Be Flexible to Change the Hairstyle Through the Night – Every bride wants to go for a hairstyle that does not come in the way of their sight when they are walking down the aisle or exchanging the vows as they want to witness everything. So, ensure that the hair remains stable and settled during the ceremony. After that, you can try a fun updo or let lose the soft curls.
  9. Stay True to Yourself – Finally, it can be said that though for donning the perfect look you can seek inspiration from millions of magazines, movie stars and the internet, but at the end of the day your man has chosen you above everything else and this day is all about you. So, stay true to yourself and don’t change your look entirely. Bring out the best version of you but do not go for any radical changes according to the experts.

The above are some of the tips as suggested by the beauty and care experts who are also associated with reputed event management companies and know exactly which look works and which one doesn’t for any event.
