Surrey and Sussex wedding hair and make-up artists share the top bridal beauty trends and detail how you can get the look
Hannah Louisa MUA
"The ‘no make-up bridal look’ is my current biggest trend. It seems to be what all the brides want at the moment and I love it. There's something about the natural flawless face that makes me excited. Finishing it off with a nude/pink on the eyes with eyelashes just makes for a great wedding look. Here at Hannah Louisa MUA we offer everything you need to make getting ready stress-free, including pre-wedding skincare advice to stop any unwanted breakouts on the wedding day. Top up make-up services are also available if you’ve got a long wedding day ahead, so you know you’ll look flawless into the late hours."

"Natural foundation, the 'less is more' make-up that will photograph beautifully but look very natural in person. In the picture, I used a radiance primer which gives a soft luminiosity under the foundation, and the blusher is a soft peach which adds to the natural appearance. I am certified in airbrush make-up, a technique that involves applying your make-up via an airbrush to give a flawless and weightless finish. You can cover any blemishes/redness easily without it looking heavy and it stays on all day, looking flawless but feeling as light as air."
"I provide a bespoke make-up and hair styling service, available to come to your home or venue. I always aim to enhance your natural beauty and create the best possible version of you."
"I’m passionate that my clients feel like the very best version of themselves on their wedding day. Feeling good gives you the confidence to own your look and totally rock it down the aisle. I would describe my typical style of hairdressing as effortlessly pretty with an editorial edge. Lots of my brides are enjoying wearing their hair down or partially down and I believe this trend will continue into next year, especially as V-necklines and backs of dresses are getting lower. It’s a look that can be tailored to flatter the individual and customised to echo the overall styling/vibe of the day."
"For Lauren (pictured) we gave her loose, delicate waves a romantic twist by leaving softness around her face and adding impact with some extravagant flower power in the back. A feminine look neither too neat nor too messy. Think princess bride with a structured dress and formal venue. It’s the little details that make the difference.”
"All brides want their make-up to last throughout the day. Many worry about becoming oily and patchy, or their mascara smudging. Instead of using your traditional foundation and brushes, I use a silicone based foundation that is dispersed through an airbrushing gun. The gun atomises the foundation and creates tiny particles. It leaves the skin looking flawless and radiant, and lasts through sweat and tears as it is heat resistant and non-stick. It is quickly becoming the make-up of choice for brides and bridal parties alike. On top of this, I usually use a MAC creamy blush for longer wear, and NARS ‘Laguna’ bronzer. I always finish with a pop of Anastasia Beverly Hills highlight to give a dewy, glowing finish."
"Glowing skin is key for bridal make-up and, with Meghan Markle’s minimalist, flawless glow at the royal wedding, is a trend that is sure to continue to influence brides into 2019. While current fashion make-up trends are focused on a heavy base with baking, contour and highlight, your bridal make-up should simply enhance your natural beauty and ensure you still look like you when you walk down the aisle."
"I am a make-up artist based in Reigate and I am passionate about working with you to achieve the perfect look for you and the bridal party on your most special day. I want you to feel amazing and for you to love looking back at your wedding photos. I am also available for engagement parties and photos."
