When I asked one of the best in the business Kaitlin Chapman to give us her hair & makeup pics for the coming season, I got an unbelievably speedy reply. It is no surprise really as Auckland based Kaitlin knows exactly what’s hot, and has a very impressive portfolio to back it up. I love that the latest looks are not only wedding perfect, but I have also been inspired to play around with my own everyday hair and makeup after drooling over the pics below! I will let the lovely Kaitlin take it from here…
Whether you want your hair out in tousled waves paired with a sexy smokey eye or hair in a nice structured bun with a beautiful soft makeup, we have you covered! We all have our preferences when it comes to the hair and makeup we choose on the biggest day of our lives, and frankly if you are not the hair and makeup type of gal it’s hard to explain your vision to your hair or makeup artist on your trial.
I have seen pages and pages of hair and makeup looks over the years however this season I am drawn to these pictures below! Some are the most common hair and makeup references I receive from my brides, others are images I just can’t take my eyes off.
What hair styles are hot this season?
This season I’m seeing a lot of hair ups, soft, un-structured up dos either to the side or centred at the nape of the neck and nothing too sleek (one thing I get asked often!) flower crowns are huge! Think ‘boho’ as your inspiration. Fresh flowers or a flower crown incorporated gently into your style or alternatively a hair piece made with the fabric of your gown or something special to you.
I am seeing a lot of braids this year too in not only the bridesmaids hair but brides too. You can definitely get creative with these.
What makeup looks are hot this season?
Makeup looks this season are a little similar to last. Achieving the perfect flawless base is key. I’m loving Soft hues of browns, bronzed complexions and a thick set of false lashes. Something a few of my brides have opted for this year is a subtle eye makeup and a bold lip. Using just a flick of eyeliner to define the eyes and a bold pink lippie (MAC girl about town has been a huge hit!) so fresh and elegant.
