Put down that pumpkin-spiced latte and drink in what celeb make up artist Stacey Frasca, Studio 28 Cosmetics owner and partner with Jesamondo Salon & Spa, has to say about bridal makeup trends for fall. With all eyes on you, your big day beauty is everything. Here’s what you can expect to see walking down the aisles this autumn.


The look for brows are soft, feathery, and well groomed. Thick and dominate brows of last season are out. Brow powders, clear brow gels, and spoolie brushes are used to create this brow and keep them soft but full.


This season’s looks are fresh and youthful. Rosy beiges and pinks and plums are very current and complement most skin tones. These colors detract from under-eye darkness and create cheekbones, so you don’t have to use heavy contour.


They’re definitely bold this season! Red is always a classic and never goes out of style, but the new richness of burgundy, brick plums, and crimsons are keeping brides on-trend for 2015. A touch of metallic gloss with these new rich tones softens the look for brides who are a little less daring.


A bronze lid is the new smokey eye for bridal makeup. Heavy, dark shadows used to create smokey lids are out. Bronze is the new black.


A well-defined eyeliner is also a beautiful and popular trend this season, using felt-tip liners and gels. A strong cat eye shape is out, especially considering this season’s lips are strong.


Metallics are in! Touches of metallic makeup are beautiful for bridal makeup this fall season. A bronze lid with a metallic finish or a crimson lip with a touch of a metallic gloss are gorgeous looks for the brides having their weddings close to the holiday season.


Lashes are lush and wispy this season, to complete the look of soft brows, well-defined eyeliner, and bold lips.
