A year in review: beauty

By Bride and Groom 22 December 2017

As Bride and Groom looks back at the year that was, journalists Jessica and Alana have reminisced about their favourite bridal hair and makeup styles from 2017.

Jessica’s top beauty looks

Romantic curls are a bridal staple and this year was no exception with Goulburn Valley brides letting their hair down.

While glamourous bright lipstick hues had a moment, the nude lip proved it is also here to stay. 

Valley Bride Breeanna Hicks opted for classic curls complete with a vintage inspired headpiece adorned with beans and sequins.

While when it came to makeup she kept her wedding day look elegant with a pop of red lipstick.

Letting her natural beauty shine through Valley Bride Kirsten Oughton went for barely-there-makeup for her wedding to Michael.

She pared a nude lip and dark eye with Hollywood waves for a touch of old-world style.

Bold lips pack a punch and Valley Bride Celeste James made a statement with a stunning shade of plum.

To match her roaring 1920s inspired, hand-beaded gown she wore a jeweled headpiece with relaxed curls.

Alana’s top beauty looks

Bold brows have been a stable of 2017, and Valley Bride Dani Emmett ensured that her face was perfectly framed on the day, paired with minimalistic eye makeup.

A rosy hue on her lips caps off the look which compliments the bride’s sun kissed skin and laidback and relaxed wedding.

Drawing inspiration from her romantic blooms, Valley Bride Emily Gemmill opted for a romantic hint of rosy pink on her lips, tying in her luscious flower head piece.

A hint of gold on the eyelids added a shimmer to the overall look which was worn with the bride’s straight, on-trend bob.

For Valley Bride Morgan McLeod it was a return to the 1920s with the bride letting her hair down with some classic roaring 20s curls.

Peach tones on the cheeks and lips gave Morgan a burst of colour and drew attention to her beaming smile on the day.
