Dream dress and shoe? Check! Perfect bouquet? Check! What’s next?
Your Cinderella look isn’t quite complete until you get a fitting facebeat for your big day.
You thought finding the perfect wedding gown was the most stressful part of wedding planning? Wait until you have to find the perfect bridal makeup look that says classy, but also all-eyes-on-me, without being too bridezilla. A bride’s choice in makeup says a lot about her personality, and should, at the core of it all, enhance the beauty that you are.
First things first, as I’m sure most brides already do, make sure that you have images of makeup looks you’d love to recreate. The experts who’ll handle your wedding glam will be able to advise you on specific looks that will compliment your face type that fit into your overall aesthetic, but it’s still a great idea to have a rough idea as a starting point.
1. Natural Glam
You can never go wrong with an all-natural, minimalistic look and embrace your natural beauty. For brides going for a no-makeup look with minimal, sheer coverage, this is the perfect look incorporating a subtle palette on your eyes with a hint of mascara, making for the perfect look for an outdoor, earthy ceremony. Recreate this gorgeous look to celebrate stunning, flawless skin.
2. Classic Look
For a distinguished look that you can pull off in a daytime or evening wedding, go for this gorgeously timeless classic look. Pair it with a statement winged liner for a striking look. Keep it classy and sophisticated with a stunning look that’ll look great, whatever your wedding theme.
3. Dramatic Eye
This dramatic eye is the perfect look for a modern wedding with ultra-defined features so you look like a stunning painting. Play around with your colors to complement the bold cat eye.
4. All Glammed Up
Dark tones that add depth are our idée fixe, with thick curled lashes to crown your gorgeous eyes. Go all out with this voluminous look to make sure everyone’s attention stays on you with fluttering false lashes and dramatic eyeshadow.
5. Vintage Glam
This is a gorgeous look for a vintage girl. Rock this stunning smokey eye that’s grounded and natural with a perfect blend of neutral earth tones and keeping the smoke contained to the outer corner of the eyes.
6. Smokey Eye
To nail the perfect smokey eye and sultry look, grab a brush and buff out your dark matte black eyeshadow in a wing motion, then finish it off with a gel or liquid liner to top it all off, blend it all over the lid and underneath the lower lashline. A charcoal-hued eye takes center stage, regardless of what you decide to do with the rest of your face. Get the perfect dramatic smokey eye for a heavily embellished look, and don’t be afraid to play around with colors, metallics or rosey tones to compliment the sassy look.
7. Romantic Finish
To achieve a look that molds the epitome of bold and romance in one, try the Soft Glow with the perfect eyeshadow-liner balance. The depth provided by the liner subtly adds to the eye corners paired with the light palette is a definite YES from us. This is an effortless look that lets you still look, well, like you, with a dash of charm.
8. Sweeping Cat Eyeliner
Turn heads with this absolutely gorg! Look with a dramatic, winged liner and complimentary, dark eyeshadow. Go for rich tones, velvety browns and dark hues to bring out your eyes and smudge it out a little for that WOW factor.
9. Soft Glow
More of a bohemian girl and looking for a style that keeps it sassy but subtle? This is the perfect look for you! Keep it simple and chic with a soft look and light mascara. Blend in the liner until it’s soft and subtle.
Your makeup will look incredible with a little (or a lot if you’re bold) golden touch! Catch every light and go with a dazzling, gilded bronzed eye, with just enough shimmer to compliment the rest of your face. The metallic touch adds the little drama, making you look like a million bucks!
11. Gradient Look With Ombré Eyeshadow
Deep earthy brown tones and sleek eyebrows are a match made in heaven, giving you a blended look of romantic and bold in one.
12. Gilded Eye
If you’ll be having an evening wedding with chandeliers and all the trimmings, this is THE perfect look, with a bronzed eye look to keep you glowing all night long. Pair with defined eyes and long lashes for a dazzling entrance.
13. Retro Look
Let your eyes take center stage with sultry tones to bring out a dreamy, retro look.
We love this soft glam with a pop of shimmer. Gold eyeshadow and graphic liner harken back to the golden age of glamour. This look begs for a dash of bronze eyeshadow to add to the retro feel.
14. Winged Eye
Anyone else thinks a winged eye just screams sass? For our sassy brides that aren’t shy to embrace their diva side, this is the perfect look to go for. Use a gel or liquid liner to get perfectly defined lines with this look, drawing the wing all the way to the tail of your eyebrow. For a distinguished look, with or without a complimentary dramatic color on the lids, this is a stunning look to say “I do” in.
15. Full Brows
Thick, full eyebrows are quite the statement on their own, bringing out the definition of your face and creating a stunning look. Whether you let them take center stage or pair them with a complimentary, dramatic eye makeup is up to you. One thing’s for sure, you’ll look absolutely stunning.
16. Matte Look
Enhance and embrace your feminine energy with this gorgeous look that gives your eyes a vivacious flair. Keep things toned down with a matte look and dark tones to complete the look and that’ll have you looking your best. We love this sophisticated look for an elegant wedding. Muted earth tones and a deep-brown eye are a heavenly match for defined brows.
17. Glitz and Glamour
For our balsy brides that love the spotlight and aren’t afraid to take center stage! If you can pull off a dramatic eye anyday, why go any different on your big day? Step out in full glam mode with all the extra bits. A bold eye, voluptuous eyelash, defined brows, and sexy, gradient eyeshadow. We’re pulling all the stops with this look, and your guests will love it.
18. Light and Flirty
For an effortless look that says girly and playful, this is the look for you! Crown your eyes with a simple lash line definition and lightly buff it out, accompanied by a generous amount of mascara to top it all off. This doe-eyes look will make you feel like the prettiest girl at the ball as you walk down the aisle.
19. All Out Drama
Not scared of a little drama? Make a statement that leaves none of your guests wondering who the center of attraction is with a massively bold look with intense liners and dark eyeshadow palettes. Go all out to achieve that WOW factor with buffered liner at the corners and a little shimmer if you please.
20. Bold, Voluminous Lashes
A bold eye is a MUST if you want to achieve the glammed up bride look. Get your eyes to “pop” by adding a debonaire touch to your look by enhancing your natural lashes. Whether you pair this with an equally dramatic eyeshadow or keep it at just the voluminous lashes look is sure to make a statement on its own.
