Mad About Wedding Makeup

Contouring, lashes, waterproof, all-day wear, pencil, liner, highlighter — navigating makeup on a daily basis is hard enough as it is; but add a white dress, photography and hundreds of fixated eyeballs, and well, it takes on a different dimension.

Some tips to consider regarding wedding-day makeup:

1) Schedule a makeup trial, or two or three — however many it takes to get the look you’ve imagined. You don’t want any surprises on the big day, especially when it comes to your face.

2) Don’t be afraid of bridal makeup. Chances are it will appear and feel heavy at first, but we can assure you it won’t look that way to your groom, guests and in pictures. Think of yourself as the lead actress in a play. Offstage the makeup is dark, but on stage it’s just right.

3) Wear false eyelashes. They’re worth it.

4) Have fun! Makeup is an extension of your wedding-day look. Play off your theme, dress, color palette and more. Play it safe or be completely daring. Most importantly, just be yourself.

Here are some jaw-dropping makeup looks:

FRESH-FACED BEAUTY: If au naturel is what you’re going for, opt for this pretty pink approach. It’s subtle but has enough definition to make perfect photographs.

JUST PEACHY: We love pale peach lips and cheeks paired with smoky shadow and cat eyeliner — a stunning recipe for a hint of demure drama.

FALL-TIME FLIRTY: If you’re hosting an autumnal bash, pay homage to the season’s famous bronze palette with cappuccino eyes and rust lips and cheeks. (And urge your photographer to snap some shots in the leaves. You’ll blend in seamlessly!)

 ROSY ROMANCE: Dare to be bold yet still feminine? Raspberry lips, plum eyes and rosy cheeks make for a romantic combination.

SOPHISTICATED GLAM: Black tie calls for smoky eyes, defined brows and a deep magenta pout, which is especially striking with a tousled up-do.
