Bridal Fashion Show 2018: Wedding Makeup & Hairstyles

It was a busy and fun weekend doing wedding makeup and hair for the Elegant Bridal Show at The Springhaven Club in Wallingford, Pa.

The ballroom at Springhaven is full of natural light and beautiful views from the many windows surrounding the room. There are two stone fireplaces that add a rustic charm to the space. They offer an amazing raspberry brie d'oeuvre. Yummy! And the cake sample 
from SophistiCakes Bakery was to die for!

The salon where I do makeup, skin care and nails, Styling Point, did the makeup and hair on four models for highlight of the bridal show, the bridal fashion show. Angel Bridal was the bridal shop who supplied the gorgeous bridal and bridesmaid dresses.

All of our hair stylists and makeup artists at Styling Point have years of experience in bridal work and keep up on the latest wedding trends. I did the makeup on two of the models. My colleague did the other two models. The hair and makeup were done at the same time because it's just crazy getting the models finished in time to get dressed and ready for the show. It's always a time crunch!

My first model had young beautiful skin and never leaves the house without her eyebrows done! A bit of caramel colored foundation evened out her skin tone. I used cream, peach, black and shades of brown eye shadows, black eye liner and black mascara on her eyes. Then, I patted on a little glitter over the eye shadow for a nice sparkle. Rose blush and a shimmer highlighter accented her cheeks. A mauvy pink lipstick topped with highlighter looked perfect on her lips.

Her hair was curled, back combed and woven into a elegant up style. Andrea created this style.

My second model I did also had beautiful skin. A creamy colored foundation evened her skin tone. I used cream, black and shades of brown eye shadow, black eye liner and black mascara for her eye makeup. The brows needed a little filling with brown brow powder. A soft pink blush, a hint of bronzer and highlighter gently contoured her cheeks. A nice rosy lipstick and lip liner made her lips look fresh and pretty.

Her hair was very long. A team of two hair stylists worked together to get her hair curled before being braided and woven into an up style. Lori created this beautiful style.

This model also had long hair. Her hair was loosely curled and styled into a braided up style. For her makeup, her eyes were accented with smoky eye shadow and her lips were a soft mauve.

The next long haired model wore a pulled back curled down style with a clean and fresh makeup. Her skin had such a fabulous luminous glow very little foundation was needed.

Pantone Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet Decorating and Makeup Ideas

ultra violet
The Pantone Color of the Year for 2018 is Ultra Violet. Ultra Violet is a beautiful blue based purple, a blue violet. It represents the vast night sky sparkling with stars and planets to spark our creativity and inspire us to reach for the stars. The Pantone Color Instutite is a color research and color information center. It's a color matching system used fashion, interior design, art, product manufacturing and more.

I'm long time fan of the regal purple. I wear it on myself with clothes, makeup and nail polish and decorate my home and gardens with it. It pairs quite well with green in home decorating just as it does in nature.

One of my favorite table settings was a purple and green theme for Easter a few years ago. Little pots of blue violet pansies wrapped in lavender tissue paper, lilacs in small crystal vases and candles in shades of green made a fresh springy centerpiece for the table.

The walls in the dining room were hunter green then. Now they are Sherwin Williams Wallflower, a mauve lavender shade of purple.

I highly recommend it. It's so bright and cheery! It really brightened up this room located in the eastern corner of my house.

If you want more drama than lavender with your purple paint, here are a few Ultra Violet purples to try:

Purple paint may be too much for your taste. You can always add touches of purple with pillows, throws and nick-nackery.
