Let Your Personality Shine with These Bridal Makeup Looks
There are a million things brides stress over before their wedding day — sending invites to guests, arranging pre-nuptial photoshoots, and preparing the menu, among many others. If there’s one thing you shouldn’t worry about, it’s nailing your wedding makeup look.
Yes, it can be tricky and overwhelming, especially since there are many styles and beauty trends to choose from. You also want your makeup to match your wedding dress and withstand the Orem weather.
To help simplify your selection, here’s a round-up of the most-requested makeup looks that make any beautiful bride shine on her special day.
1. Natural Look
The last thing you need on your wedding day is worrying if whether your makeup will stay on and look fresh all day. Natural makeup is ideal for those who want all-day longevity as it focuses on dewy skin and neutral, warm shades. You can stick with a sheer foundation, a nude lip, brow gel, and a layer of cream blush for a pretty, flushed finish. Aside from eliminating the need for regular touch-ups, a natural bridal makeup look will also highlight your features, ensuring that you are the best version of yourself when you walk down the aisle.
If you get in your dress and realize your natural makeup isn’t quite enough, pump it up with a strip of false lashes and a light wash of bronze eye shadow.
2. Glamorous Look
Not everyone wants to look like a natural, blushing bride. If you want to look glamorous on your wedding day, the key is to keep things fun and flirty, but still relatively soft.
If you never leave your house without a blinding highlight or a sharp contour, choose the features you love the most and focus on building those up. Make your brows bushy and natural. Apply thick coats of mascara and use copper or bronze eye pencil along your top lash line for a sultry touch and extra depth. Match your lips and cheeks to the tones of your eye shadow for a seamless finish.
3. Bronzed Look
Bronze tones will always be a wedding favorite due to their smoldering yet natural finish. Not only do gold and copper feel festive and expensive, but they also provide your skin with a healthy and glowy look.
For your wedding day, try an illuminating primer, glittery champagne eye shadow, a metallic lip, and pops of highlighter. To finish off your look, work your bronzer along your face’s frame, into your cheekbone, along your hairline, and along your jawline.
4. Classic Look
If you don’t buy into the latest beauty trends and want to look timeless on your special day, a classic makeup look is perfect as it will never go out of style.
To achieve this look, you can’t go wrong with an elegant cat-eye and red lips. If this is already your everyday look, glam it up with a cheekbone highlight. Opt for simple eye makeup with earth-toned mattes and don’t overdo the bronzer. You want your natural features enhanced, not masked.
Sure, choosing a wedding makeup look can be a daunting task, but it’s much easier compared to hunting down those missing RSVPs and arranging your seating chart. With a plethora of makeup ideas, you can beautifully complement your bridal gown and theme while letting your personal style shine.
