Five Great Wedding Day Looks to Consider

As your wedding day approaches, you’ll have to finalize the overall look you want, even after purchasing a gown. Your personal sense of style, along with the time of the wedding and the level of formality of the event can help you select a wedding look that you’ll love. Here are a few chic ideas to consider.

Natural and Radiant

If you want to go with the “no makeup” look, a naturally radiant face is ideal. You can achieve this by exfoliating your skin at least once a week in the months leading up to your wedding and using a moisturizer with a high SPF to prevent and treat fine lines and wrinkles. Getting regular facials before your big day will help you pull this look off successfully as well. You can search for salons such as use gentle ingredients and have your makeup done naturally for your wedding

Vintage Glamour

A “cat eye” and bold red lips are trademarks of old school glamor. If your dress has a vintage feel to it, this style will help complete the look. If you have warm undertones, choose a red lipstick with tinges of burgundy and bronze. For cool skin tones, a red lip that boasts bluer tinges is best. A smooth liquid makeup that gives your skin an especially youthful look works well, especially if you set the foundation with a translucent powder.

Autumn Beauty

Berry shades and bronze hues are ideal for an autumn wedding. Accent your eyes with eyeshadow in a deep gold shade to bring more attention to the top half of your face and use a foundation that deeply moisturizes the skin. This gives your face a healthy, dewy appearance and keeps your complexion from getting dry if you’re exchanging your vows outside. Finish the look with lipstick in a deep raspberry shade, which will pair well with similar colours in your wedding bouquet or decorations.

Summer Fun

A fun summer wedding look includes wispy and whimsical lashes, liquid bronzer, and a lipstick with a tan or pink tint to it. Long lashes that accent the shape of your eyes can be accomplished with using lengthening mascara or strip lashes. A bronzer with an iridescent quality to it is best for this look as well. Apply the bronzer to the apples of your cheeks, along with on your forehead and chin for a naturally sun-kissed look.

Subtle Yet Sultry

Keeping your makeup subtle and adding one eye-catching element can be creative yet elegant. For instance, if you choose to wear a smoky eye for your wedding, choose a nude lipstick and subtle blush so that your eyes will stand out. If you want your lips to be the main feature, select eyeshadow that is close to your skin tone so your bold lipstick will get all the attention.
Keep in mind that using a primer for your foundation, eyeshadow, lipstick and lipgloss is ideal for your wedding day. This keeps the makeup you’ve chosen in place all day long and makes for more flattering pictures. Don’t forget to select a quality waterproof mascara as well, so that your look will stay intact during emotional moments of the day such as exchanging vows or proposing a toast.
