It’s 2017 and we’re just so excited for another brand new year with brand new wedding ideas and trends to check out. But before we jump into all that’s new, here’s a roundup of all that we loved last year. We dug into our bridal files to bring you some of the most fabulous beauty looks from last year. Each of these brides stunned us with their flawless and glamorous makeup and even if we tried hard, we swear, it wasn’t easy to look away! Check out these 10 bridal beauty looks of 2016 that are just too pretty.
1. The winged eyeliner

But more than that, it was her classic vintage eye makeup that was anything but ordinary. A soft smokey effect, heavy mascara and extended winged eyeliner made this look one of our favourites.
2. Pinks & Reds

The shimmering pink eyeshadow fades into grey and the bold eyebrows add all the extra drama. Finishing off the look was a blood red lipstick and a bindi to match.
3. Golden girl

Lots of metallic gold glitter, tonnes of mascara and a defined eyeliner made the eyes completely stand out. Bold red lips and a tiny bindi made the bride's face pop and completed her traditional yet glamorous bridal look.
4. Fresh and fabulous

5. Eyes like that!

7. Glitter and gold
