With this look, you pay close attention to enhancing your natural features. There’s a carefree, bohemian spirit involved here which is perfect for a more organic vision.

Defined eyes with an accentuation using light eyeshadows with a shimmer. Filled in with powerful brows, and a light, coral lip make this fall-inspired combination quite masterful.

Light Smokey Eye

This look is a bit more dramatic but still subtle in terms of makeup. A light, evening-inspired smokey eye, some falsies for your eyes to pop in photos and a natural lip is a quintessential bridal look that every woman can rock and feel confident in. For more formal events, this is a go-to.

No-Makeup Bridal

If you’re more into a “no-makeup makeup look,” then this is a beautiful example of how to follow suit. Everything is enhanced but in a way that’s delicate and romantic. Use natural tones to bring out your own features.

Maybe you’re more daring and want to get a bit more glammed up on your big day. If so, think about doing natural makeup and then adding a bold lip to finish off the look. This is an especially perfect route to take for those with a more retro vision.

Natural Lip & Glam Eyeliner

A lot of women love to enhance their eyes, and that’s exactly what you’ll want to see in your photos. Define your eyes with a darker shade and bring out your natural blues, greens, browns, or hazel beauties. Finish the rest with a natural lip and peachy glow.

Light & Bright Natural with Glow

Sometimes a glowing finish is all you need, especially for casual, destination affairs. The highlighter will become your best friend and there are so many different kinds to choose from. Golden, blush-tones, silver, and even ones with full-on shimmer.

Natural Sun Glow

There may be times that you want less of a shimmer and more of a summertime glow. If so, take some notes from this sunshine-inspired look. Use bronzer to highlight and contour and complete your look with natural brows and lips.

Light Smokey Eye & Cheek Contour

Here’s a lighter, smokey eye to grab some inspiration from as well. This is a great example of how you can take your daytime look and just plump it up a bit more for the celebration. Go just a little heavier on your eyeliner and contouring shadow with attention to your cheekbones.

Natural Dramatic

We love this more glam beauty as well. All of the colors are natural but taken up a level. This is the way to go for more formal events or just when you want your features to pop a bit better in photographs. A heavy top liner, emphasized brows, and a pouty lip is really the perfect trio.

Glam Eyes with Natural Lip

And finally, here’s the most glam look of the list, when it comes to the eyes. It’s a great blend of both dramatic and natural features. A skin-tone lip and some emphasized eyelashes can be a stunning combination for all kinds of brides to wear.
