Natural Wedding Makeup Inspo
The No-makeup look has evolved into a raging beauty trend which is being eagerly copied by modern day brides who wish to rock minimalism Modern day ladies are going ahead with minimal makeup to radiate their true glamour under the camera. It’s simple, it’s classic, and it’s the one thing that works for everyone. If you are keen on sporting such a look on your big day while still taking the breath away of your beloved, then here are a few tips you need to incorporate in your makeup routine:
A foundation can help you blend away all signs of redness and imperfections while proceeding with the natural wedding makeup. However, you need to be cautious about not going overboard with application of the same. The trick to getting flawless-looking skin with minimalist makeup is to apply foundation only to the parts of your skin that really need it. From there, blend into your face with a flat foundation brush to keep the product light and natural. Keep your bronzer natural, matte and only a slightly deeper shade than your skin tone. A damp sponge can be used for nailing a much more sheer finish. You can procced with mattifying makeup if you wish to avoid excess shine which might get further accentuated under the lights.
Coming to eyeshadow, it is always advisable to stick to neutral tones for your natural wedding makeup and add a subtle hint of black or brown liner to the upper lash line for that extra definition. You can even coat your lashes with generous layering of mascara or maybe even try out false lashes for that dramatic look.
For inspiration on how to perfect natural minimalist bridal makeup, think feathery brows, flushed cheeks, and nude lips… Resist the temptation to skip your brows — this is a great way to take a minimal makeup look to the next level.
It is imperative to opt for pink and peach blush tones if you wish to nail the natural wedding makeup in an effortless fashion. Excess contouring is a strict no-no if you wish to keep it simple as it might give away your makeup tricks under broad daylight. You can however highlight the middle of your nose and top of your cheekbones for that dewy glow.
The colour of your lips need to be kept as much close to your natural lip tone as possible. Go for a lip stain or lip liner to fill in your lips and follow it up with satin or matte finish lipstick in nude color shades. This can help the colour in lasting for long even if you get into some serious action with your beloved.
Glam Wedding Makeup Inspo
Not everyone wants to be a natural, blushing bride. If you don’t ever leave the house without a sharp contour or a blinding highlight, choose your features you love the most and focus on building those up (even if that means all of them).The glam bride loves wearing dramatic makeup on a daily basis and her wedding will be no different. Glamorous wedding makeup can be sexy, metallic, and perfectly dramatic. The trick is to keep to either dramatic eyes or lips with little other visible makeup .A deep smokey eye with shades of golden bronze or charcoal are great options to bring the bridal glamour. So yes, there’s a way to wear glitter that feels not only glam but also bridal. With the rest of your makeup kept wedding-classic your eyes can become the playground for experimentation so winged liner, fluffy false lashes and perfectly lined plump lips will all be a requirement for the glamorous bride’s primping routine leading up to her big debut. Love playing up your lips? Skip the sheer gloss and try a pigmented liquid lipstick (it’ll last longer through all the kissing and eating, anyway).
Bridal Smoky-eye Makeup Inspo
When it comes to wedding day make-up, we’re big advocates of the ‘less is more’ technique. But getting married is a pretty big deal and no look says sultry and seductive like the glamorous smoky eye. Smokey eyes adds a mysterious, sexy, and feminine look and creates sophistication in your bridal makeup. Smokey eyes are timeless, this type of makeup suits any face and always looks great, so it’s not surprising that almost every bride chooses it for her big day. A bride, in her pristine white dress with a slightly edgy, shimmery, smokey eye is such a beautiful, modern bridal look. You are sure to dazzle like a diva. Its not only classy, but with a little bit of twist and experiment with colours, you can become every bit the trend setter bride you aspire to be. Smokey eyes add an instant dose of glamour but can make you look insanely gorgeous. There are tons of idea for smokey eyes dramatic dark ones with black, dark brown, burgundy and navy or softer ideas with gold,tan,copper You can also still achieve romantic smoky eye makeup without it looking too heavy or dark for your special day – think metallic bronze and silvers
Classic Bridal Makeup Inspo
If you don’t buy into trends and want something that’s going to feel timeless no matter when you look back through your wedding album, you can’t go wrong with a classic cat-eye and red lip. If this is already your signature look, stick with it but maybe bump up the lashes or add a cheekbone highlight to glam it up. A timeless, elegant bridal look will never go out of style.
Matte Wedding Makeup Inspo
If you’re not a glitter queen, don’t feel like you need to be just because it’s your wedding day (it’s the number-one day to feel comfortable in your own skin!). A full-matte look can be just as glam and extravagant as its shimmery counterpart—just play up the eyes with shadow and liner, and go a bit deeper on the contour for the ultimate effect. Bronzer and a nude lipstick complete the neutral, sexy matte wedding look. Equally important: Keep blotting papers in your clutch (or, realistically, your maid of honor’s clutch) to prevent shine during photos.
Glowy Wedding Makeup Looks
Not only do copper and gold feel expensive and festive if you’re having a winter wedding, but they also give skin a really healthy, glowy look when dusted over your cheekbones.
Try a glittery gilded eye, a metallic lip, or a gilded highlight in powder formulas, versus cream or oil, so your look will last all night.
However you decide to do your makeup, make sure that your wedding day look is one you love. If you’re enjoying yourself, looking happy and in love, you won’t be able to help being absolutely beautiful.
