There are so many things to consider and decide when planning out a full bridal look. When a bride thinks about their wedding dress, they may wonder what style or "look" of makeup they should wear to pair best with their gorgeous gown on their special day. You of course would want it to be flattering and also complimentary, something that enhances your natural beauty and doesn't take away or distract from the overall look itself. We have taken the time to carefully select what we think are some of the best makeup looks to pair with a few different wedding dresses to help you when deciding for your own big day.
For this soft and whimsical Wedding Societe layered ball gown, we feel a soft, light and natural makeup look would pair best. This wedding gown is ethereal and fun, the 3D floral lace detailing and wrapped tulle bodice/straps give this dress a very soft feel and you don't want anything too heavy or dramatic to take away from the gentle angelic beauty that this gown offers. A colorful veil or statement earrings can give you an extra fun pop if you are looking to add a little extra to this look.
For this divinely feminine fit and flare gown from Martin Thornburg, we recommend a brown smokey eye, something that brings out the warmth in your features. This gown is featuring a sultry semi-sheer corseted bodice with organic floral detailing and a seductive sweetheart neckline and separate long illusion lace bishop sleeves add a touch of romance to this stunning bridal look. We recommend keeping the makeup warm with defined contouring and highlighting to enhance to natural structure of the face to compliment the structure given in this spectacular gown.
Wedding Societe really put a lot into the details of this stunning boho gown featuring bell sleeves and daring low back. We think a unique and daring wedding dress such as this deserves a makeup look that is just as daring and sophisticated. We recommend a neutral smokey eye with dark lashes, defined brows and a rich pop of deep red or burgundy for lipstick. This makeup look would pair phenomenally with the elegant yet free-spirited design of this gown.
No matter which of these makeup looks you go with, or gown you say yes to, the most important part is that you feel beautiful, confident, and most importantly like yourself on that big day.
