Wedding Makeup Ideas That Won't Leave a Dry Eye in the House
If we were to give just one piece of advice to brides looking for inspiration for their wedding day makeup, it would be to stay true to your look. We’re all for kicking it up a notch (in fact, we think it’s an absolute must), but now isn’t the time to reinvent the wheel. Go for natural wedding makeup if you’ve always been an au naturel gal, though you might opt to swap your trusty CC cream for a buildable foundation that lets your freckles peek through. On the other hand, if you’re one to bust out the false lashes for the opening of an envelope, consider this a prime opportunity to bring on the drama with your wedding makeup. The best wedding makeup will showcase the bride in her very best light, whether it’s playing up sparkling blue eyes or accenting mile-high cheekbones with the perfect pop of blush. We’ve gathered a bouquet of wedding makeup ideas that will help you look your best on your big day. Just make sure that fiancé of yours comes prepared with a hanky in his pocket—he’s going to need it.
