You’ll want to be sure your makeup only enhances your natural beauty. After all, you’ll be taking plenty of photos on your wedding day, and you want to look like you.


Getting Ready to Apply Your Natural Makeup



The first part of achieving your wedding makeup natural look is taking care of your skin. With a healthy skincare routine, your skin will be glowing and ready for your wedding.

Focus on moisturizing, hydrating, and being careful to put quality ingredients on your skin. Apart from your day-to-day routine, getting a facial before your wedding is a great way to ensure you’re fresh-faced for your photos!

Natural Makeup

Start your wedding makeup natural style with moisturizer and primer. Depending on your skin type, you’ll need to pick a product designed for dry, oily, or sensitive skin. Then apply your foundation–liquid foundations work best for a fresh and natural finish.



Use a small amount of concealer for a seamless look. But don’t go overboard! Using just a little to touch up here and there will look most natural. If you have freckles or other beauty marks, you might not want to cover them up.

Highlight Your Features

The next step for your wedding makeup natural style is to enhance your natural beauty.

Use blush to draw out color along your cheekbones. If you have darker toned skin, it’s best to not go all-out with blush, but a subtle shade will draw out your natural undertones and give you a gorgeous glow. For those with fairer skin, choose soft but bright hues that complement your skin tone and give you a fresh, dewy look.

Pick neutral-toned eyeshadows and use eyeliner optionally if you really want to draw out the color of your eyes. It’s also a good idea to brush out your brows and lightly fill any gaps with pencil. With mascara, lighter-skinned brides should choose browns and beiges, and darked-skinned brides should choose deeper shades like charcoal. Avoid any color that’s too intense for your skin, since that spoils the natural look!



For your lips, be sure to moisturize to exfoliate your skin and keep your lips looking plump and healthy. Select a shade of lipstick or gloss that’s two tones darker than your natural lip tone.
