5 Makeup Looks to Try for Your Wedding

Deciding on a makeup look for your wedding can be complicated. Do you want a look that is more simple, or something more dramatic? What colour do you want your lipstick? How long is it going to last? How heavy should it be?

While some brides do choose to do their own makeup, hiring a makeup artist can help to reduce some of the stress on your big day. With a professional waiting in the wings to give you a touch up before all those big moments (walking down the aisle, family photos, in between outfit changes), you wouldn’t have to worry so much anymore. So long as you know the exact style of makeup you want.

So if you’re stuck and can’t decide, ahead are 5 different makeup looks to inspire you for your wedding day.

1. Flushed

It may surprise you to know this but some makeup artists recommend being a little more heavyhanded with your blush for your wedding day. It will show up better on your photos, regardless of the photographer’s style of editing.

2. Red Lip Classic

A loud pop of colour can add more dimension to your face, especially if you’re going light everywhere else. Make sure to ask your makeup artist for kissproof lipstick, you wouldn’t want to leave a mark on your husband’s face!

3. The Boss Babe

Who says makeup has to be soft and feminine? If you and your husband are hustlers and the kind to go after what you want, let your attitude shine through with a heavier makeup look. A smoky eye paired with slicked back hair leans a little more severe than regular wedding makeup, and is perfect for any rulebreaker!

4. The Barely There

Not all of us like to wear makeup on a daily basis. Sometimes it’s better to go au naturel! If you are a bride who doesn’t really like to wear a lot makeup, a good makeup artist, like our friends over at Makeup Maestro, can help to enhance your natural beauty without caking too much of it on.

5. Dewy Dumpling

A dewy makeup look may seem at odds with oily skin—just about every other bride is cursed with it—but a healthy glow will help you to look more youthful and fresh faced, no matter how little sleep you had the night before. And if you’re on the other end of the spectrum with Sahara Desert dry skin, the extra moisture will be a welcome change!
