The Biggest Bridal Beauty Trends 2020

While the move towards minimalist beauty is nothing new, there's been a particularly strong shift towards pulled-back makeup looks this past year—especially in the bridal world.

Gone are the days of heavy contour, Instagram brows, and a solid matte lip. Instead, brides are opting for makeup and hair that enhances, rather than conceals, their natural beauty on their big day. Using Meghan Markle's refreshingly minimal bridal look as inspiration, this trend has since become a fixture for the modern bride with no sign of slowing down.

Here, we round up the best beauty trends for a 2020 bride.


Barely-There Base

Instead of packing on the full coverage foundation, let your natural skin shine through with a luminescent sheer foundation for your big day. Apply concealer to areas you need a little more coverage.

Rosy Glow

Stark highlight is out, and a rosy glow is in. Add an illuminating pop of colour with a cream blush rather than powder for a warm natural look.

No-Care Hair

We're seeing everyone from Meghan Markle to Hailey Bieber sport the messy, no-care low bun on their wedding day. However, this look works for any style as long as your hair is loose and slightly unkempt.

Full, Fluffy Brows

Full, fluffy brows are the new sharp carved brow. This soft yet powerful brow look is sure to make a statement for any bride.

Bronzed Eyelids

Ditch the taupe bridal tones in lieu of bronzed eyelids for a glowing neutral look that compliments any eye colour.

Lip Tint

A glossy tint is the perfect way to add a bit of colour to your lips without wearing an opaque lipstick. Try a red or nude tint to tie together your bridal look.
