Fairest of them All is your 2022 Source for Top Bridal Beauty Trends
Loose waves are a top bridal hair trend in 2022. This elegant hairstyle can be worn as loose waves down the back or can be pulled into a ponytail.
Chignon buns and a classic updo are also going to see a lot of play this year, either pulled tight or loose with texture and curls, this look is timeless.
Highlighting your cheekbones and temple with soft peaches and pinks will give brides a natural rosy glow and it looks gorgeous with smokey eyes, a classic bridal look.
Color palettes range from grays and browns to soft plums. Go as dark or light as you wish.
Nude-shaded eyes with full lashes is another look to try and adding a bit of shimmer to your eye makeup will make your eyes pop. Try using a soft silver or pearl to achieve this look but remember, a little goes a long way.
A soft pink or natural-colored lip will finish any '22 wedding look, especially when topped with a small amount of transparent lip gloss for a bit of shine.
Pro tip: Consider incorporating a dash of your daily personal style into your wedding look, from your signature shade of lipstick to a favorite accessory incorporated into your hairstyle. And no matter what - make sure you always do a trial run before your big day!
