Whether you’re walking down the aisle this spring or will be attending a wedding in the near future, we’ve rounded up the perfect beauty looks from our favorite It girls to inspire you for your next big occasion. From sultry and bold-lipped (like Jenna Dewan Tatum and Miranda Kerr) to “barely there” beauty (as seen on Emilia Clarke), there’s something for everyone. Keep reading to find the right look for you.
If you’re a lover of pink, look no further than Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for your inspiration. On multiple occasions, she’s mastered the art of pink lips, cheeks, and eyes, which makes for a flawless, feminine beauty look. A monochromatic pink scheme is also the appropriate route to take when you want a more colorful version of an all-natural look.
If you’re not a fan of heavy face makeup (i.e., getting your contour on), then try a subtle pop of color. Lightly dust your favorite shade across your cheekbones for a natural yet glowy look, à la Jessica Chastain.
Up for a bit of drama? For fancy evening weddings try a golden smoky eye and strong brow inspired by Jenna Dewan Tatum.
Go for a golden glow while attending a beach or garden wedding ceremony. There’s nothing more fitting for the occasion than emphasizing your sun-kissed skin.
“No makeup” makeup is the perfect choice for a laid-back wedding with a rustic vibe. You’ll want to stick to a neutral palette to achieve this look.
If you’re not one to shy away from a little color and love a standout lip, follow in Miranda Kerr’s footsteps. This is the perfect way to execute a timeless look for a classic occasion.
For formal black-tie celebrations, go for something classic, polished, and glamourous. Here, Kerry Washington's eyes did all the talking with an ultra-defined liner and bold lashes—an elegant match for dressy attire.
