Get wedding-ready with these makeup ideas

The wedding month of June is coming up soon. You know what this means: time to trade your bikinis and flip-flops for formal gowns and heels. Aside from the changes in your wardrobe, you'll need to update your makeup look as well to match the occasion. Natural-looking makeup is usually the go-to look for bridal beauty, but it's definitely not the only option. You may be a guest, a member of the entourage, or the bride herself, and you'll want to say "I do" to these beauty ideas regardless of the role you play on the big day!

Monochromatic Makeup

Using shades from the same color family gives your makeup a unifying overall theme. This is no big secret in the bridal beauty industry, and most artists have a go-to set of colors already. Pinks, plums and browns are the most used because they're the most flattering. For a summery touch, try peach or peachy-pink shades.

When done properly, monochromatic makeup can have a dreamy effect, which will definitely look great in photos!

Relaxed Smokey Eyes

The smokey eye look is most commonly associated with nights out in the club and looking on with a smoldering stare. But for those who want to wear it to a wedding, there’s always a way of toning it down to make it appropriate for even an early-morning ceremony. Opt for a color that isn’t as harsh as flat-out black. How about bronze or even purple? Don’t forget to pair it with a nude lip or MLBB to balance out the primary feature you’re defining.

Everything About Adele

Winged eyeliner has already become Adele’s signature look. She may pair it with light or contoured lids and nude or bold lips, but the precision liner game is a constant. The resulting photos are timeless, be it in color or in black-and-white. Cop her siren style with perfectly winged liner, on-fleek brows, and false lashes. If you're prone to crying (it'll be hard not to when Make You Feel My Love comes on), make sure to use waterproof makeup!

 A Korean Level of Dewy

The hallmark of Korean makeup is a youthful and glowing look. Isn’t that pretty much synonymous to bridal beauty? It starts with a beefed-up skincare regimen for well-moisturized skin. If you don’t have the time to lay the groundwork, work with sheen and shimmer to simulate that fresh-faced vibe.

Try on a colored shimmer shadow for your lids, then add fine beige shimmer to the inner corners of the eyes and on the lower lashline to brighten up those peepers. Gloss-touched lips are the oh-so-kissable option, but avoid sticky formulas if you’ll be doing a lot of smooching! You can still strobe, but select a highlighter or illuminator that has fine shimmer and work with a light hand.

Loved the looks above? Get Pinterest-happy so you have more pegs to show your makeup artist and, if you're the bride, it pays off to have a trial session beforehand. Should you choose to do your own makeup, start practicing your application techniques and collecting the right products to ensure that everything stays on even if you party the night away.

Will you be attending weddings this June? Which look/s will you be trying on?
