Have you been keeping up with our Bridal Fashion Week coverage this season? Twice a year, all of your favorite bridal designers showcase their newest wedding dresses and we're right there for all of the action, bringing you gorgeous gowns to fawn over and exclusive peeks behind-the-scenes. If you have been following our editors along, you probably have already saved a wish list of wedding dresses for your 2019 wedding. But inspiration for your dream dress isn't the only thing to take away from Fall 2019 Bridal Fashion Week. All the beauty inspiration 2019 brides need was walking the runaways this season!

Whether you're newly engaged or are preparing for your fast-approaching hair and makeup trials, these new beauty trends are just the place to start when it comes to choosing your hair and makeup look for the big day. Unsurprisingly, a few trends this season were inspired by Meghan Markleahem, the Duchess of Sussex—and her May royal wedding. We spied bandeau hairpieces on models at the Reem Acra and Berta runway shows, à la the duchess's Diamond Bandeau Tiara. Luminous skin was also very in, with designers and makeup artists exchanging matte makeup for a gorgeous, allover glow. And if you were thinking of switching up your everyday look for your wedding in an oh-so subtle way, consider trying a center part—one of this season's major hair trends.

So what are you waiting for? You have beauty trials to plan for! Keep scrolling to see our favorite wedding hair and makeup trends from Fall 2019's Bridal Fashion Week.

No-Care Hair

Is that you, Meghan Markle? It should come as no surprise that following the royal wedding, where the Duchess of Sussex rocked an undone bun, intentionally messy hairstyles are in. "It’s a messy bun, we call it," Markle's wedding hairstyle Serge Normant told Brides. "Messy in a controlled way, making sure it doesn’t become a whole mess after a few hours!"

From windswept locks to loose waves to face-framing tendrils, there are dozens of ways to replicate this relaxed and effortless look for your wedding, as shown by the models of Bridal Fashion Week.

Rosy Hues

From burgundy to just-bitten berry, washes of rosy hues popped up on the faces of models at several runway shows this season. For example, Inbal Dror featured classic ruby lips and the smiles at the Lela Rose presentation were tinted in an ultra-feminine pink. Meanwhile, Hayley Paige had the cheekbones of her models splashed with a punchy hue, and the models at the Willowby by Watters show were done up in dusty rose. See all the pink pouts and flushed cheeks below.

Center Parts

Sure, we understand if you want to give your everyday look a little something extra for your wedding day. But going from blonde to brunette or suddenly shedding six inches of hair is so not the way to go. However, a new part in your hair can change up your style, while still keeping true to you. As seen all over the Fall 2019 Bridal Fashion Week runways, the style can be kept either super sleek and pulled back or more voluminous for an effortlessly cool look.

Luminous Skin

Matte foundation? We don't know her. This season, we were practically blinded by luminous complexions. And this isn't just ye olde cheekbone highlight; this is a gorgeous, allover glow. Exchange your pressed powder for a foundation with a dewy finish—we love Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation ($48, available at Nordstrom) and Maybelline's Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation ($8, available at Ulta)—to replicate this trendy, luminous look.

Bandeau Hairpieces and Headbands

Photo by Collin Pierson

Another Meghan Markle inspired trend? You don't say. This Bridal Fashion Week, tresses were accessorized with beautiful bandeaus and glittering headbands, which bring to mind the Queen Mary Diamond Bandeau Tiara that the Duchess of Sussex donned for the royal wedding. The trend definitely isn't as princess-y as your typical tiara, but these wedding hair accessories definitely have a regal air about them—one that's wholly modern and so 2019. Thinner, unembellished headbands were also cropping up this season, giving off sleek and minimalist vibes our '90s hearts couldn't help but love.

Bronzed Lids

Bronze is first place in our eyes. This season, eyes were awash in bronzy eyeshadow shades. And whether lids were coated in metallic or matte brown hues, the shadows always seemed effortless, never overdone. Think of it as a smoky eye, simplified. Ever flattering, this eye makeup will complement almost any bride-to-be's wedding day look. Try the bareMinerals Gen Nude Eyeshadow Palette in Latte ($29, available at Nordstrom) for a similar effect.

Fab Fringe

Dare we say, bangs are back? Face-framing fringe was all over the Bridal Fashion Week runways, and we can't wait to see it start to make its way down the aisle in the coming year. It's a bold, chic look and one that comes in a million and one styles—short and blunt, long and wispy, tousled and boho, all of which were seen at this season's bridal shows.

Winged Liner

If Bridal Fashion Week is any indication, brides will be channeling Brigitte Bardot in 2019 with flirty winged liner. Whether you go bold with a thicker line or with a subtle, come-hither flick, this eye makeup look is undeniably sexy and striking. Haven't mastered liquid liner just yet? At the Lazaro show, the winged liner look was replicated with easy sweeps of charcoal shadow.

The Bold, The Beautiful

Remember when all the brides were dotting their hair with dainty buds of baby's breath? Consider the style wilted. This season, we saw bold and beautiful hair accessories aplenty. With towering headpieces, larger-than-life hats, and oversized blooms, it'll be the bigger the better when it comes to wedding hair accessories in 2019.

Eye-Catching Eyebrows

You can thank Cara Delevingne: It's been a good few years now since bold brows have been trending, but this eyes-up-here look isn't going anywhere. Just check out at the models at Bridal Fashion Week who rocked gorgeously shaped brows on the Fall 2019 runways, from the strikingly thick to the expertly angled.
