Be a stunner on your wedding day!

There is nothing more heart-fluttering than knowing that your fairytale wedding is well on its way. Doing that tear-jerking walk down the aisle to meet your spouse-to-be coudn't be any more exciting. But before all that wedding magic happens, we all know a ton of preparations must be made to ensure that the ceremony is exactly how you dreamed it would be. And planning for the big day can be quite a stressful task: there are venues, decorations, guest lists, and catering to prepare. Not to mention that you have to plan your entire wedding look, too.

Coming up with the perfect bridal makeup look is as important as picking out the perfect dress, what with all the picture-taking to immortalize such a momentous day. We believe that the key to shining on your wedding day is by picking a look that’s faithful to your taste and personality. But of course, that’s easier said than done. Luckily, we’ve prepared some bridal makeup looks to help you if you’re lost or indecisive! But before that, here is a list of tips to boost your wedding day glow!

3 Tips to Ensure Glowing Skin on Your Wedding Day

1. Take care of your health!

Sleep enough hours, drink lots of water, and maintain a healthy diet, because it will show if you haven't.

2. Give your skin a break.

Stop experimenting with different skincare or makeup products the couple weeks leading to your wedding and stick to a routine that you know already works for you!


3. Pick the right makeup artist.

This one’s a bit tricky, but make sure you do your research on any prospective makeup artists—ask friends, look for reviews, check out the artist’s previous bridal work, and never decide on a whim. Remember: they're going to be responsible for how you look in those wedding photos you'll keep forever!

Now, onto the makeup looks! Scroll down to see 10 bridal makeup inspirations to help you choose your very own look for your wedding day.

10 Wedding Makeup Look Ideas for Every Kind of Bride

1. Natural and glowing

This wedding look has been all the rage for brides, and we’re obsessed, too! This look enhances and refines your features, creating a natural lit-from-within look that’ll reflect your excitement for the day.

2. Rose-colored lips

One of the most important parts of the wedding ceremony? The kiss! A rose-colored lip color will make you look extra kissable. We love how this shade is universally flattering and fits perfectly with any eye look, so you can go as bold or as natural as you want!

3. Peachy sparkle

This look is for the ones who love to glow all over! Ask your makeup artist to pair a peachy shimmer on your lids with similarly colored blush and lipstick. It’s a monochromatic look with just the right amount of dimension, and it will keep all eyes on your bright peepers.

4. K-beauty inspired

Can't get enough of K-beauty? Well, this look takes its cue from our favorite Korean celebs! It has all the key characteristics of a classic K-beauty face: shimmer, soft eyeliner, and glossy gradient lips. This would look especially fresh for garden-themed weddings!

5. Blushing bride

A "blushing bride" look is all about that romantic flush. Mimic it by making your blush the star of look, and don’t forget to add some highlighter and lightly contour to define those cheekbones. For a sunkissed look, swipe some blush across your nose bridge, too!

6. Doll eyes

Deliver the look of love by enhancing your gaze! To get that doll-eyed effect, create a rounder eye shape by focusing your mascara on the upper lashes, and only lightly defining your lower lashes. For added definition, pick your wispiest pair of falsies! Lastly, make sure to pick a lip that’s not too nude—you don’t want to look pale in photos!

7. Toasty nude

For an option that's a bit more glam, try out a warm bronze eye. Create a lifted eye look by fanning out that color upwards and towards your temple. Don’t forget to bronze up and highlight the high points of your face to achieve that fresh bridal glow!

8. No-makeup makeup

This look is for the true minimalist—perfect for those who are the most comfortable with less. Go for a thin base, groomed brows, and a soft wash of color on the lids. Add subtle falsies, a little blush, and some tint on your lips and you’re ready to wow with your natural beauty!

9. Something blue

A modern take on the "something blue" wedding tradition, we know this look will be popular among brides who are the life of the party! To make the blue pop, keep the other tones on your eyes and lips in a complementary shade, such as the warm orange used here on Kris Bernal. But of course, you can opt for a different pop of color, too! We recommend picking one that matches your wedding’s color palette.

10. Bold lip

Nothing screams classy than a bold lip. For this look, use a lip liner and lip brush to keep the edges of the color clean and crisp. Keep the look cohesive by either lightly tapping that lip shade on your cheeks as blush, or adding a bit of that color on your eyes, like in this example. Don't forget to use a transfer-proof formula to avoid leaving some color on your future spouse’s lips, or worse, your dress!
