Getting married and stuck for makeup ideas? Well, you're in the right place. The thing is, so many people will say to you, You want to look the like the best version of you on the day, and while that's undeniably true, that's not code for the same classic soft smoky eye and rosebud lip. You may go all-out with your makeup look on the daily, or a strong liner flick might be your staple. So yes, your wedding makeup should show off your best you, one that your nearest and dearest know and love, but we are all different. Which is why you'll find 14 wedding makeup ideas below that span all tastes, from wallflower to classic to extrovert. Then simply show your chosen look to your makeup artist who can adapt it to suit you.
If a classic liner flick is your go-to, then go with it on your big day. Here, it's worn with a monochrome look, which means that the colours on the eyes, cheeks, and lips are all from the same world—in this case, a peachy pink. Try Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner ($22). It won't budge.
These pink glitter lashes look almost otherworldly.
In this rich caramel tone, the floating liner drawn in along the eyelid crease adds dimension and definition to the eye area without taking over. It's kind of beautiful.
A rich, metallic purple smudged under the waterline adds a pretty detail to an otherwise classic and understated makeup look. Re-create it with Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Waterproof Eye Pencil in I-90 Iridescent Pop Purple ($21).
A dewy complexion and pearly highlighter paired with a wash of pink blush make for the perfect understated makeup look. Get that flushed-from-within look with Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Pale Pink ($26).
A light daub of silver eye shadow on the center of the eyelids brightens the eye area and will give you an ethereal effect. Why not pair with a gypsophila headband like the model?
Work with your skin tone and hair color rather than against them. Here, the toffee shadow under the eyes and flushed pink cheeks are perfectly placed. Mascara optional.
Getting married in winter or just prefer a more opulent look? This ombré lip that's darker in the center adds instant drama while the wash of purple on the eyes keeps it looking soft.
Who says your liner flick has to be black? Get inspired by rich jewel tones like this deep rich teal blue.
Don't want to be keeping one eye on the whereabouts of your lipstick? Opt for a clear or pink gloss instead. Try BareMinerals Gen Nude Patent Lip Lacquer ($19).
Love highlighter that's sheeny, not shimmery? Add highlight to the skin with Nudestix Nudies All Over Face Colour Glow in Illumi-Naughty ($30).
Want to show off your creative side? Face crystals are a pretty way to do just that. You can take inspiration from this look and scatter around the eye, or use them closer to the lash line for a subtle sparkle of embellishment.
