I recently had the chance interview Rick DiCecca on this summer's bridal looks. Let's take a peek into his view on beauty, the hottest bridal trends, and some of his favorite products
My career began after I finished art school, I decided to try my hand at makeup and after finishing my courses, I landed a job with a salon that specialized in brides.
2. What do you see are the trends for bridal makeup currently?
I have noticed 3 distinct trends recently in bridal that correlate with the trends I’m seeing in makeup on the runways. We are still seeing a version of the smoky sexy eye, balanced with a nude or beige lip.
I’m also seeing a classic American look with softly defined eye makeup and a sexy red lipstick.
The third trend is the bronzed look with soft definition luminous skin.
3. What is your favorite and how would you describe your signature look for brides?
I would say my favorite is the smoky eye balanced with a nude or beige lipstick. My signature look is a well defined eye, luminous skin and a sexy glossy lip.
4. What is the number one makeup mistake that brides make?
I would have to say the #1 mistake I see over and over again is using too much makeup and often the wrong colors. Remember that you want to look at these photos years from now and appreciate that you look like yourself…only better!
5. How should wedding makeup differ from every day makeup?
I think the biggest difference in wedding makeup from everyday makeup is the photography element. There has to be a few must haves with your wedding makeup such as concealer, foundation and illumination.
6. What are some of your favorite bridal products in your makeup kit?
Some of my favorite products that I use on brides are Double Wear Mascara, Double Wear Eyeliners in Onyx , Graphite and Bronze, Projectionist Mascara in Black. Nutritious Vita Mineral Foundations, Bronze Goddess Soft Matte Bronzer, Peach Nuance and Nude Nuance Signature Blush. Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in Crystal Beige.
We thank Rick for giving us insight on this summer's bridal looks as well as his take on bridal makeup, and know there will be beautiful brides to come!
