Beach Bridal Looks For 2018 | Sarah Garnier

Sarah Garnier, one of the top rated Hair & Makeup Artists in Riviera Maya Mexico, shares with us her expert advice and bridal beauty trends for this year. Beach destination brides planning to say I-do under the tropical Mexican Sky, please read on.

Q. Sarah, what are the bridal hair and makeup trends for 2018 and which of them are more suitable for beach weddings?

A. For a beach wedding, you need to consider two key factors: it’s very likely to be windy and humid!. So lets always keep in mind these factors when choosing the perfect trends for a beach wedding.  

Makeup 

-A fantastic trend that began in 2017 and continues, is the strobing technique which uses illuminators to highlight and define the face. Another fantastic trend we love is the glow & dewy skin like showcased at Reem Acra’s fall 2018 catwalk. This trend definitely suits our weather and makes your skin look fresh and healthy!

-For 2018, bold eye-brows is THE trend! Since the model Cara Delavigne wowed the New York fashion week with her full eyebrows look, we fell in love with the trend! Powerful well-defined brows lift the structure of your face, open your eyes and frame your features! So don’t be afraid to let your brows grow!! (Monique Lhuillier, Reem Acra shows)

-Consider matte brown for your eyeshadow and liner… Two of our favorite versions of the brown eye makeup trend was at the Alberta Ferretti & Marchesa and Naeem Khan runway shows. Models walked the runway with red lipstick and a warm bronze eyeshadow, get the look and be inspired by our beautiful bride!

Hair 

– Braids have always been popular with the Riviera Maya brides, and this season the braids invaded the bridal catwalk  (Claire Pettibone, Theia, Kelly Faetanini, and Della Giovanna shows) where it was proved there’s so many ways to wear them!. In crown for example as seen at Temperley London show. 

– For all the buns lovers, the elegant Low loop stole the show this year (example: Carolina Herrera catwalk) and it is also the perfect hairstyle for the Riviera Maya weather! 

– Lace and bow for accessories. At the bridal shows, the color of choice was black, for the Riviera Maya the perfect colors would be ivory, pink or sand! 

Flower crowns are beautiful and were our brides’ favorite trend in 2017;  for 2018 perfection can be achieved with just a couple flowers paired with a beautiful chignon.

Q. Which hair & makeup bridal trends of the past do you think should remain in 2018 and which should go?

A. It’s hard to say that a trend should go; it depends on each bride’s look (natural, sophisticated) and what she decides to wear on her wedding day (dress, accessories). The best choice is to “adapt the trend to each bride”.

Braids and beach waves are timeless and work perfectly with our weather. So those two trends are keepers! And this year our brides will be wearing them texturized like the hair backstage at Monique L’huillier.

For a beach wedding, Flowers as a hair accessory is always a good idea! and there are so many ways to wear them. White orchids were the flower of choice at Lela Rose.

If you are a bun lover, instead of the side bun, the low loop is a must have for 2018!

Q. Sarah, how many years have you been in the industry? Do you remember how many brides have you beautified?

A. I’ve been working as a hair and make up artist for about 15 years and 8 years in the weddings industry. I don’t recall how many brides I’ve worked for (maybe 100 per year), however, they are all special to me! Every bride is different, and it’s always a fun experience.

Q. Can you give us a price range for hair & makeup and what’s the best way to reach you?

A. Prices vary depending on the location and the number of services. We have special bridal packages, group packages and single services (just hair or just make up). You can contact us by e-mail: sarahgarnier@ymail.com or our website www.sarahagarnier.com

Gracias Sarah!!! We hope you all find this info very helpful, and remember, adapt the trends to your style and personality.
