Whether you're a YouTube experimenter or you like to stick to the basics, you've probably pondered your bridal beauty look by now if you're getting married in 2019.

Of course, your hairstylist and makeup artist will know exactly what to do once you have your inspiration, but if you don't feel inspired yet, we've got you covered. Check out some of the hottest beauty trends—literally, you'll look hot—for 2019, below.

1. Fancy Accessories

From barrettes and bows to clips and clasps, this is the year of the high-fashion bridal hair accessory. (Psst—this trend is perfect for you if you don't picture yourself wearing a veil.)

2. Sun-Kissed Skin

Heavy contour is out. Instead, achieve the sun-kissed look with matte bronzer and highlighter. (Or, plan a prewedding "earlymoon" to a warm and sunny locale. Just remember the sunscreen.)

3. Pastel Hair Hues

Whether it's ombré, rainbow or even gray (yes, really), soft and subtle hair hues are taking over. May we suggest Pantone's 2019 Color of the Year for your nuptials, bold brides?

4. Gloss and Shimmer

We know, we know—you've been hearing about matte-everything for years now, but it's all about glossiness right now. Add a little shimmer and shine to your bridal beauty look via your lips, lids or both. (Glossier Play's new glitter gel is all the rage right now for a reason.)

5. Slicked Back 'Dos

You can pull off this look no matter your hair length. Whether it's a sleek pony or a coiffed bob, this trend is all about pulling your hair back away from your face (making it all the more easy to look in your partner's eyes at the altar) and letting your gorgeous skin and cheekbones steal the show.

6. No-Makeup Makeup

It goes without saying that stunning skin never goes out of style. Take a cue from Duchess Meghan by letting your natural glow and skin—freckles and all—take center stage.

7. All Blush Everything

Blush isn't just for your cheeks anymore. Pink-toned makeup—from your lips to your lids—is romantic, feminine and flattering for all skintones.

8. Windswept Waves

There's something sweet and sultry about slightly tousled hair that looks like it's been blowing in the breeze. Get the look by pulling your hair half-back with a braid or a messy (yet polished) bun.
