Runway Report: The 3 Biggest Bridal Makeup Trends of the Year

Runway beauty looks don’t always translate to real life (though, how cool would it be if we all rocked the sequined eyebrows from Chanel’s Fall 12 show?!). Bridal runway beauty looks, however, are a different story. Designers like Oscar de la Renta, Monique Lhullier, and Naeem Khan don’t tend to go the aspirational beauty route when Bridal Fashion Week rolls around each year—a too-crazy makeup look detracts from the wedding gown, after all.

Now that Bridal Fashion Week has drawn to a close, we caught up with lead makeup artist Daniel Martin (he keyed the makeup looks for Naeem Khan, Christo, Kenneth Pool, and Amsale), and asked him to share the top makeup trends he saw this season, as well as his top makeup picks for any bride.
