10 gorgeous make-up looks for every kind of bride

Instant inspiration for whatever look you’re going for on your wedding day


At a glance, you may think that there’s not a lot of variety to be found when it comes to wedding make-up, but that’s not exactly true. While wedding make-up is usually all about looking your best without overdoing it, different women have different features which they’d prefer to focus on and highlight on their big day. Here are some of our favourite wedding-appropriate looks.

1. Highlighted cheekbones with lush lashes

Eyes are the primary focus of this look, thanks to the addition of a pair of fluttery lashes.

2. Rosy lips with bold eyebrows

A subtle look which lets the bride’s natural beauty and her perfectly-groomed eyebrows shine through.

3. Metallic eye with nude lip

The lips take a backseat in this beauty look, while the light-coloured eyes are enhanced with cat-eye eyeliner and metallic eyeshadow.

4. Natural look with shimmery eyes

This look is extremely subtle, with just a few hints of shimmer and blush to give the bride a healthy, glowing look.

6. Extreme cat-eye with bronzer

Take the cat-eye to the next level by going all around the eye and coming to a point at the tear ducts, but then it’s best that the rest of your make-up remains relatively simple.

An ultra-subtle look for those lucky enough to have perfect skin and only need the merest of touch-ups to look their best.

8. Bold eyes and bold lips

If a full face of make-up is your go-to on a daily basis, there’s no reason to change that on the big day while looking gorgeous and classy.
