16 of the Most Gorgeous Wedding Makeup Looks for Your Big Day

Getting married is one of the most joyful occasions ever! But, it can often get tainted by the never-ending list of chores and arrangements that need to be made. Lucky for you, I’ve been there and done that, and know how much time and effort goes into creating the perfect bridal look!

Will it be a smokey eye with a nude lip? Or neutral eyes and a base with a bright red lip? To help you get there quicker, we’ve brought you the best and most gorgeous wedding makeup ideas. There’s a bridal look for everyone here! From all skin shades and all styles, these ideas bring it all!

1. Flawless Nude Makeup

Do you love neutral makeup? Go for this stunning makeup look with a flawless base, neutral eyeshadow and a nude lip!

To add some wow factor finish off the look with flashy false lashes!

2. Muted Pink Smokey Eye

Match your eyes to your lipstick color with this pink smokey eyeshadow look. It’s a full-on glam look where everything tones beautifully, but it’s the bold black eyeliner that steals the show!

3. Au-Natural Bridal Glam

No-makeup-makeup looks are trending now and it’s easy to see why! Pretty and classy, it’s a makeup look you simply can’t go wrong with for the elegant bride and it’s a stunner on dark skin.

4. Matte Bridal Look

Not a fan of shimmery makeup? No fear, this matte look will steal the show! The pink shade flatters blondes, but would also work with other hair colors too!

5. Barbie Perfection

If you have blonde hair and blue eyes, get yourself a mild Barbie look. Go for a pink cheek tint, with matching pink lips!

6. Bronze Bride

Often golden skin doesn’t need much work in the makeup department. Add a touch of neutral colors and work on getting that bronzed skin glowing!

7. Princess Bride

With your once-in-a-lifetime wedding (or at least we hope!), go all out, with a fun and pretty princess look.

The key features here are the winged liner, the pink lipstick and of course, a princess needs a crown!

8. Fuchia Lips

A bride can get away with any look, it is their day after all! Have fun with your makeup and go for a bright and loud fuchsia pink lip!

Match the shade of blush to your lips to complete the look.

9. Golden Glow Wedding Look

Golden skin and golden hair? Pair it with a touch of pink to complement the colors perfectly! Add some inner eye highlighter to bring out the eyes!

10. Bold Brows

Pair your smokey eyes with bold brows. Keep the rest of the face neutral so that the eyes steal the show!

11. Matte Smokey Bride Look

Smokey eyes don’t always need to be intense. Go for lighter, more subtle shades for a sophisticated smokey look! Check out these smokey eyeshadow palettes to recreate this look.

12. Shaggy Brows Makeup Look

Give your makeup a natural beauty look with shaggy brows that just so happen to be all the rage at the moment! Keep the rest of the face minimal for a soft makeup look.

13. Cat-eye Bride

Do you love neutral makeup but want to spruce it up a bit? Go for a cat-eye with a fabulous flick for an instantly upgraded look!

Use the Urban Decay 24/7 Inks Liquid Eyeliners to get the eyeliner.

14. Glossy Lips Wedding Look

Transform thin lips to supple ones with a shimmery lip gloss. The natural shine gives the lips added dimension! Whether it’s a nude lip gloss or a darker shade, it will do the trick!

15. Tanned Bride

When you top-up on the tanner you actually don’t need that much makeup to look glamorous. This look is proof of that! Natural yet stunning, sometimes less is more!

My Thoughts

There’s no shortage of inspiration for wedding makeup looks because truthfully, any look works! It’s your day, you get to call the shots!

Whether that’s a bold and bright look or a subtle and natural look, it’s your choice, so go and have fun!

A small tip is to try out a few different looks because until you see it on you, you don’t really know how it will look! All too often, we think a makeup look isn’t for us, and then we try it out and look fantabulous!

These wedding makeup looks will give any bride that beautiful bridal glow!
