Wedding Ideas for Amazingly Beautiful Makeup

wedding ideas for bridal makeup

Brides are constantly looking for wedding ideas and especially bridal makeup tips. On your wedding day you will be photographed hundreds, possibly even thousands of times. You want to look your absolute best, while still projecting a look of natural bridal beauty. It can be a tough balance to strike. If you are hiring a professional, be sure to schedule a consultation and trial before the big day. If you’re doing your own makeup, do a dry run (or two, or three) before your wedding. Experiment with different products, and be sure that you’ve covered every eventuality. If you are breaking out from the stress of the wedding, or have bags under your eyes from lack of sleep, know in advance what you’ll do. If you’re still deciding on your look, here are some great wedding ideas for perfect bridal makeup.

Ethereal Beauty

Thinking blushing bride or woodland nymph. Many wedding ideas for decor centre on an outdoorsy or ethereal theme. Your makeup can match! Think flawless, glowing skin with a dewy appearance. The key to this look is to make sure that you know how to fake flawless skin if you don’t have it – and few of us are that lucky! Find an amazing concealer, and be open to using different products for blemishes, uneven skin tone, and under eyes. A good highlighter can also make a big difference. If you have never used a highlighter before, be sure to look around for a good one and practice, practice, practice. Use a soft, pinkish blush and soft pink lips to finish off this look.

Wine Lips and Golden Eyes

This look isn’t for everyone, but if your wedding ideas include a fall wedding, consider this glamourous, autumnal look. A dramatic cranberry or wine shade on the lips paired with eyes done in a golden shadow. You can play with the eyes to find the right amount of drama for you. Use a subtle black liner to define your eyes once you’ve applied the shadow. For the lips, find the perfect wine shade and consider using a liner for a totally matte finish. You need to add some dewiness to the skin to balance out a matte lip (otherwise you’ll look totally 80’s) so use a good highlighter or dab some face cream over the makeup to give your cheeks a little bit of shine.
