“No-makeup makeup” is having a moment in the bridal world. This natural makeup look is perfect for the bride who wants to look like herself on her wedding day—just a little more polished and glowy.
To get the no-makeup makeup look, you need to start with a clean, hydrated face. Ask your Makeup Artist to use a light foundation or BB cream to even out your skin tone, and conceal any blemishes as needed. You can add a touch of colour to your cheeks with a rosy blush. For your eyes, always opt for a nude eye shadow palette and apply a wash of colour over your lids. You can even add definition with some mascara, and ask to fill in your brows if needed. Lastly, choose a nude lip gloss or lipstick.
This type of makeup look is all about achieving natural-looking results, so don’t be afraid to go easy on the products. The goal is to enhance your features without looking like you’re wearing too much makeup.

When it comes to dewy makeup, there’s no better way to add a touch of romance than with pink lips. This season, we’re seeing a lot of brides opt for a more natural look, and pink lips are the perfect way to achieve it.
It is perfect for a soft and romantic look. For this look, you should prep your lips with a hydrating lip balm. Then, ask your Makeup Artist to use a nude lip liner to outline your lips and fill them in with a pink lipstick. We love MAC’s “Pink Plaid” or Nars is the best for this look. For an extra touch of glamour, add a touch of gloss in the center of your bottom lip.
To keep your makeup looking fresh all day long, amidst ceremonies and events, set your foundation with a setting powder and make sure to touch up your lipstick throughout the night.
Smokey Eyes, Nude Lips

Achieving a bold eye with nude lips is one of the hottest trends in bridal makeup. This look is achieved by applying a heavier hand to the eye makeup while keeping the lip colour light and natural. The result is a stunning, dramatic look that is perfect for the modern bride.
To get this look, you need to start by applying a primer or concealer all over your lids to create a smooth canvas. Then, ask your Makeup Artist to opt for a dark eyeshadow to create a smoky effect on your lid and crease. For extra drama, you can always ask them to extend the shadow slightly beyond your natural crease line.
Do not forget to line your eyes with a dark pencil or liquid liner. Also, you can extend the liner slightly beyond your natural lash line for added drama. Finally, remember to keep mascara in your touch-up bag as you might need it for this look.
For your lips, ask them to keep the colour light and natural by opting for a nude lip gloss or lipstick. A peachy nude shade will complement most skin tones and will help balance out the boldness of your eyes.
