Just as a wedding dress is a totally different garment than any other formal gown, wedding makeup belongs in a category of its own too. Every bride has her own unique aesthetic and personality, and on your wedding day, you want to make sure that the makeup just enhances the best possible version of who you are naturally. We've all seen what bad makeup looks like (come on, remember that one cousin?), but as it turns out, nailing down a natural, timeless look that reflects your individuality is shockingly difficult.
Whether you're hiring a professional to do your wedding makeup or are taking on the job yourself, having photo references to inspire you is key. So we did the work for you and combed our favorite beauty Instagram accounts to find the best wedding makeup of 2017. Scroll through the photos below to find 10 looks worth saying "I do" to.
This hot pink lip and luminous skin is on the bolder side of bridal, but we are obsessed. Try Tarte's Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick in Popsicle ($21) to re-create the look.
Dewy, nude-y, glowy, flawless. This romantic makeup look is a thing of beauty.
A berry-nude lip and turquoise bottom liner have just enough personality for an edgy bride while remaining elegant enough for a wedding day.
You'd never think marigold eye shadow would work for a bridal look, but we are kind of obsessed with this. Not into the orange? Swap it out for a rosy color, like Make Up For Ever's Artist Shadow Eyeshadow and Powder Blush in Tea Pink ($21), for something a little quieter.
For a sultrier bridal look, we are big fans of a warm brown smoky eye and nude-pink lip.
Classic bridal beauty, perfectly executed. This champagne eye and slightly glossy neutral pink lip scream wedding day.
