Get inspired and discover all of the possibilities so that you can look and feel your best walking down the aisle!
Dewy Makeup Looks
Brides are beginning to shift away from heavy foundations and intense contouring towards a more subtle look. Now, the focus has turned to fresh, dewy, natural looks that still provide the shimmer and definition to give a bride that angelic glow. Dewy makeup is all about accentuating the features you already have and letting your natural beauty shine through! For brides interested in a dewy look, try out makeup brands like Glossier.
Metallic Gold and Green Shadow
Metallic shadows have been a look of choice for brides in recent years. A bold, brilliant eye can provide a focal point and a pop of color to complement a flowing white gown. Metallic shades can also be paired with matching jewelry for a more cohesive look. Metallics aren’t the only way to go, though! With a rise in natural weddings, many brides are shifting towards emerald and forest green shades.
For a bride interested in a natural look, bold lips can make a statement against a neutral base. Bold lips can be in many colors, not just the classic red, and can accentuate a bride’s beautiful smile! For some extra coordination, you may even consider choosing a lip color that coordinates with red, pink, or purple florals. If bold lips aren’t typically in your makeup arsenal, why not go all out for your big day?
Before settling on a makeup look, there are some things you may want to consider in order to feel confident on your wedding day. Here are a few tips for choosing the perfect look:
Take setting into consideration
Setting plays a huge factor in many brides’ makeup. At an outdoor venue, it is especially important to have a good primer and waterproof setting spray in case of bad weather, or, of course, for joyful tears. Think about the season of your wedding, your dress code, and your decor. All of these aspects can provide both guidance and inspiration for your wedding makeup!
Do your research
Don’t just take our word for what looks good, get out there and discover all of the possibilities! Create a Pinterest board, learn about potential makeup artists, and look for inspiration outside of the world of wedding fashion. Celebrities at red carpet events and social media influencers are just a few places to look for the latest trends in makeup.
Try before you commit!
Make sure to schedule a trial with your makeup artist before you commit to a look for your wedding. Once you try on a look, it may be completely different from what you had expected! Every bride is different, so be sure to find the right makeup look for you!
