Bridal Beauty Report from Fashion Week

Posted by Azure on September 20th, 2012

The 1970's-inspired hair and makeup at Issa London's Spring 2013 RTW runway show knocked my socks off! Issa's models donned perfectly painted red and pink lips, dramatic cat eyes, retro-inspired updos finished with tropical orchids, and sun-kissed complexions as if they just stepped off a fabulous yacht in Bora Bora. Every last detail was perfection! Gorgeous, no?!

But other designers delivered the pretty, too! And today, we share our favorite beauty looks and trends, perfect for your wedding day! So get your Pinterest trigger finger ready, and buckle up for a beautiful ride.

The tale of two lips... There are plenty of important decisions you'll make while wedding planning, and now we've got one more to add to the list! For Spring 2013, nude lips are back and better than ever, but classic red lips haven't gone away. So I've got to ask... barely there nude, or bold racy red, for your wedding day pucker?

Ballet beautiful... Christian Siriano's models inspired this trend, pretty as can be walking the runway wearing top knot ballerina buns, creamy pink lips, and fringed lashes on top and bottom (swept with brown instead of black mascara). The finished result is dreamy and ethereal, and would be lovely paired with a dramatic ballgown wedding dress.

All down 'dos.... Diane Von Furstenburg let loose this season with wavy, wind-blown all-down hairstyles (below) for her Fashion Week models. It's a gorgeous reminder that imperfection is beautiful!

Alluring eyes... Cat eyes dominated the catwalks this season, with liquid liner winged to perfection at Temperley London, Issa, Jason Wu, and many more!

Colorful lids... From sparkly blue, to neon yellow, to shimmery lilac, take a page from Monique Lhuillier and other covetable designers' books, and dare to wear color on your lids when you walk the aisle!

Wild updos... You've got to love Oscar de la Renta's funky beehive updos with pops of color mixed in! Maybe a little too offbeat for your wedding day, but inspiring eye candy none the less!
