10 Bridal Makeup Ideas and Top Tips for Going DIY
Thinking of doing your own wedding makeup? We asked leading beauty experts for their tips for going DIY. Whatever your style, this is how to do your bridal makeup, including beauty looks to inspire you and the products you need to know. You just need to find a combination that works best for you. While it is advisable to hire a professional, you could still do your makeup and get the best results.
Elegant Wedding Make Up
If you are looking forward to making a statement, elegant wedding makeup is the way to go. If you wish to have a more dramatic wedding makeup, opt for thick full eyeliner and lashes along with smokey brown hues. If you have bigger eyes, you can make them pop by running a pencil eyeliner along the waterline.
For smaller eyes, however, you should just go for a liquid eyeliner with a flick. To enhance the dramatic theme, choose nude lips. Bold lip makeup styles may be overwhelming for your canvas. You can now finish up by dusting the frame of your face lightly with bronze.
This will help compliment the deep tones of the eyeshadows.
Natural Wedding Make Up
If you do not wear makeup often, natural wedding makeup looks are the way to go. The best natural wedding makeup ideas will only enhance your natural features and won’t change the way you look. The best natural wedding makeup ideas will ensure all-day longevity.
This way, you won’t need to worry about evening wedding makeup. One of the best ideas, in this case, is dewy skin and neutral eyeshadows. Avoid colorful smudging after the ceremonial kiss by sticking with a nude lip.
For the perfect natural wedding makeup inspiration, consider flushed cheeks, feathery brows, and nude lips.
Colored eye makeup look
The colored eye makeup look is just perfect for you if you want a statement eye makeup look for your big day. The statement eye makes you look elegant in your white wedding dress and make your face looks catchier even when you’re standing afar off from the camera.
Well if you are confident of yourself and bold enough to flaunt your natural beauty without makeup, then you can try this makeup look. No makeup look is now a trending bridal makeup idea after the royal wedding of Ms. Meghan and Prince Harry. However, before you can have a no makeup look make sure that you have your skin is moisturized.
Gold bridal makeup
Gold bridal looks are timeless and elegant for classic brides who want their photos to always reflect the joy they had on their big day. Use a face primer to prepare your face for the makeup look and so that the gold matte powder can stay and last long even under sweat. Make sure that the gold matte powder is evenly applied on your face, and then make your eyelashes more elegant with a matte liquid mascara. Working on your lips, you can have a natural pink or nude color lips to complement the golden bridal look.
Cool Smokey Eyes & Matte Shades
Classic smokey eyes are a timeless way to make a statement on your wedding day. There are various ways you can achieve a stunning look. For instance, you could go for a gorgeous blend of shimmery and matte shades.

Savage eye shadow palette
Opting for a monochromatic makeup palette with creamy brown shadows and a matching lip colour, gives the complexion a soft definition.
Try teaming matte flawless skin with a slick of gloss across the lips (we love Glossier's Lip Gloss, FYI).
