So it’s time to decide on a makeup look for your bridal party, or maybe you are a guest at a wedding, and you need ideas. But with so many gorgeous ideas out there, where do you even start? Any time you dress up, you always want to look your best. Finding what colors work well together and which colors clash is key.
MAKEUP FOR TAN DRESS
Lip color choices are endless, for a fresh look use a neutral nude or pink. For a more intense pout go for a berry or apple color. On your eyes, lean more towards gold, brown, dark purple, and pink shades. Add gold highlights to your checks to bring out a glow on your face.
MAKEUP FOR LIGHT BLUE DRESS Bridesmaid makeup looks for light blue dress start with shades of pinks and champange, or cool toned browns and pearl. For a day time wedding, choose pinky browns and a lipstick color of neutral pink. Olive and darker complexions go after peachy browns with a lip color of neutral nude. For a night time wedding, go for smokey cool toned browns and a neutral lip.
MAKEUP FOR MINT GREEN DRESS
Mint green dress calls for more earthy tones like light pinks, nudes, and browns. A pink mauve tone nude lipstick to top your look off. To add color: gold in center of eyelid, matte light green in the outer corner of eye, with white shimmer around the inner corner of your eye. Tip: When adding an accent color, never go with a matchy color.
MAKEUP FOR BLUSH PINK DRESS
A neutral bridesmaid makeup look compliments a blush pink dress. Add warmth with a golden hue or grayish shade for a cooler look. A smokey eye of pink and brown adds a little dramatic flair that will look good in pictures. For lips go with a nude lipstick with a peachy pink lipgloss on top to add shine.
MAKEUP FOR CORAL DRESS
Coral dress is perfect for a late spring or summer wedding. It adds color to your pictures and goes nicely with an outdoor theme. Plus, girls have a tan that time of year to compliment the coral dress. For eyeshadow, a gold shimmer peachy pink all over your lid and brown as your accent color. If you have a pale complexion, a golden peach blush with hints of gold highlighter while a darker complexion add a brozner to bring out your tan. As for lips, a nude lip or match the color coral of the dress.
MAKEUP FOR ROYAL BLUE DRESS
Royal blue stands out and looks good on most skin types. For a fresh look, go light on the makeup with either a coral or soft pinks and browns. On lips, go bright with red or neutral pink. Add some metallic silver and brown on your eyes for a more dramatic look.
MAKEUP FOR BLACK DRESS
Honestly, any makeup looks good on a black dress. If your dress has a lot of sequins, go either light on eyes and bold on lips or reverse. If your dress is plain, then play up both your eyes and lips. Classic red lips are always popular. Add a smokey eye and you have a dramatic look. Tip: get metallic eye shadow in either silver or gold for night time. It will add flair to your look.
MAKEUP FOR PATTERNED OR BEDAZZLED DRESS
It is time for your dress to shine! While you should still look gorgeous, your makeup choices should be less bold to avoid any clashing. Glitz and glam up all you want, but chose more natural nude colors.
