It’s been a big year for new and innovative wedding makeup looks! And now it’s your turn to turn the spice up. It can be quite confusing to pick a style you like but if you know you want to play around with bold colours and statement looks then here are some amazing ideas to help you out.
Orange You Glad?
Okay, we know orange shades are scary. But everyone can pull them off if done right! Hear us out. There’s nothing like a good ol’ bold orange lip with muted or neutral makeup, you’re bound to glow. But, an orange lip might be a little much for some, and that’s fine!
Go for a sunset shadow look instead. Play around with yellows, oranges and burnt siennas to create a stunning orange eyeshadow look. Use a saturated orange shadow, and blend it with a light yellow and burnt brown shadow, add a little glitter to make it pop some more!
Stand In (Lip) Line:
Y2K looks are back, and how! One of the easiest and yet show-stopping trends is the bold lined lips. And honestly, you could do this one by yourself! Use a darker lip liner and top it with a lighter lipstick shade to fill in your lips. It’s simple, elegant and bold. Define it by cleaning it up with micellar water or concealer so it stays looking sharp all day.
Colour Me Pastel:
Anything pastel is gorgeous, so why not your make up? Pick a pastel eyeshadow that matches your outfit and create your look with this colour as the focus of your look. Pastel pinks, purples and blues are bright, playful and flattering.
Create a Smokey eye and top it with a pastel shadow and a little glitter action. If you want to keep the pastel look without committing to it too much, use a pastel eyeshadow as a bright inner corner highlight to make your eyes pop.
Get Graphic About It:
Graphic eyeliners are to die for! And what better day than your wedding to experiment with an elegant yet bold graphic liner look? How you do it is your choice! But, if you’d still like a recommendation, we’d suggest going for a 60’s inspired winged liner look in your choice of colour or just stick to the plain old black. This is a look that’s always chic yet simple.
Gloss It Up:
Editorial looks are hard to get but the gloss look is quite easy to achieve. To stay true to this trend, don’t just stop at lipgloss. Use gloss on your eyelids, cheeks and highlights. You’re bound to glow and look absolutely trendy. For your eyes, you can use a simple glitter shadow layered with gloss and pair it with a dark glossy lip. If you want to add just a tad bit more gloss, apply your highlighter and top it off with a light layer of gloss.
All heads are going to turn when you walk in, just how it should be on your big day! If you’re confused what look is right for you, head over for some assistance at the Femina Flaunt Studio.
