Nude Wedding Makeup

Nude Makeup Wedding

The simple bridal look will never go out of fashion. It’s perfect for brides who want a natural look or those who want to avoid heavy makeup lest it clashes with their jewelry. Contrary to what some people may believe, nude makeup doesn’t have to be boring. It can enhance your natural beauty and favorite features.

Everything depends on your skin tone, and you should choose colors that compliment your skin. Start by creating a flawless complexion and then add some light blush on your cheeks. As for the lipstick and eye makeup, you don’t have to use only neutral colors such as beige. Try various tones of rose or peach lipstick.

Shimmery Eyes

If you’ve always dreamed of a fairy tale wedding, we suggest you try out this look. Nothing can make you feel like a princess quite like shimmery eyes. You can choose a color that you like, depending on the color of your eyes. If you want a bit of that retro look, you can try gold eyeshadow. Don’t worry, as gold shades are trendy again.

In fact, your wedding is one of those rare occasions where it’s natural to have such a glamorous makeup. The most important thing is to keep the rest of your look simple. It’s the way to achieve an elegant and glowing look. Add nude lipstick and mascara, and you’re ready to go!

Bonus Tip: Don’t exaggerate with jewelry. Massive shiny earrings are great, but they don’t work well with this look. If you don’t want to forego your favorite earrings, try some of the other makeup looks as suggested here, especially those that focus on the lips instead of the eyes.

Romantic Makeup with Pink Lips

Pink lips can look very elegant and romantic. If you’re one of those girls who have a ton of lipsticks, you can experiment with this look and find the tone that looks best on you. If you’re wearing a simple white dress, near any shade of pink lipstick can look perfect. Choose the best hue according to the season and the color of your skin and hair.

Bear in mind that you should choose a long-lasting lipstick and try it out before your wedding. It’s essential to make sure it won’t fade over time, just in case you forget to reapply it. The good thing is that today many brands make lipsticks that are supposed to last long. We’re sure you’ll look gorgeous and get many compliments!

Bonus Tip: Different shades of pink lipstick are perfect for light, medium, and deep skin tone. There’s a perfect pink tone for everyone, and maybe you just haven’t found yours yet. Feel free to experiment with various pink shades until you find one that flatters your face.

Winged Eyeliner

Winged eyeliner looks fabulous on any woman, but many people don’t think of it as simple wedding makeup. If you love the way eyeliner looks on you, there’s no reason to not wear it on your special day. In fact, perfectly winged eyeliner is the quickest way to feel like a glamorous movie star. However, it’s essential to not overdo the rest of the makeup.

Winged eyeliner combines well with neutral colors, such as beige or light pink. Choose nude lipsticks of those colors. For the eyes, you can create a subtle smokey eye effect. However, avoid using heavy eyeshadows as you don’t want to look tired on your wedding day. As they say, less is more sometimes.

Monochromatic Pink Makeup

If you love everything pink, there’s no reason to hide that part of your personality. You deserve to feel like a princess, at least for a day. When skillfully combined, monochromatic pink makeup can be one of the best simple wedding makeup looks. Pink makeup can look refreshing with a simple wedding dress, for one.

Of course, you shouldn’t combine overly bright shades of pink. Remember that you can’t go wrong with subtle and light pink hues. You can choose your favorite tones from a monochromatic pink palette and play with them until you find that perfect look. Just don’t forget to blend them nicely.

Bonus Tip: Monochromatic pink makeup is perfect for girls who have a simple white dress. If your dress is light pink or yellow, this may not be the best option for you. However, we suggest you try it out before the big day and see what it looks like together.

For a long time, red lips have been unfairly neglected in simple makeup wedding looks. Most brides are going with neutral pastel tones these days, but if you’ve never worn that kind of makeup, there’s an alternative. If you have your favorite red lipstick and you know it’s fabulous on you, don’t even think twice!

Red lipstick is a sign of elegance, glamour, and confidence. It has the power to improve your mood as soon as you put it on. Just make sure not to overdo the rest of the makeup, especially your eyes. And you’re free to choose whether you want to underline your eyes or lips.

Our recommendation? Subtle eyeshadow and simple looks. One final touch of mascara and you’re ready to shine.

Strong Brows and a Peach Lipstick
