Picture this: your big day is finally here. The moment you've been dreaming about since you were a little girl is literally right around the corner. Your #wedding day!
The doors open. You see your groom (and you're hoping he'll cry to make for good pics #amirite). Your groom sees you. But instead of him looking at you in awe, he's looking at you in shock.
Because you look NOTHING LIKE YOURSELF. You messed up by asking your makeup artist for the drag queen makeup instead of the soft, natural bridal makeup. Oops!
Sure, your cheekbones look unnaturally high and your nose is contoured so much that it looks as skinny as a toothpick, but let's be real here...your groom wants to marry YOU and loves the way YOU look--- naturally.
So, let's check out 4 of my all time favorite natural #bridalmakeup looks that I LOVE doing on brides (and that your groom will love, too!).
1) Soft Greys
First of all, #LaurenCurtis is like the prettiest person in the world, so let's be real here, any look will look great on her.
But the focus here is the long, full lashes and the bright glowy look.
White eyeliner in the water line helps make the brightness of the eye pop, and a set of full wispie lashes make this look probably my top choice!

2) Reds and Camels
Surprisingly enough, the eyeshadows used here are reds, oranges and browns. Who would have thought to use red eyeshadow, right?!
This look is GORGEOUS for Summer and Fall.
You can see that the stylist paired this look with dark green, and I couldn't think of a better color to pair this with. If you have this color in your wedding, you've got to do this #makeup look.
3) Golds and Browns
This is a full-proof look that will literally look good on everyone!
The #makeupartist who created this look made the lid bright with shimmery cream colors and then kept the dark brown in just the outer corner.
This technique makes the eyes look bigger, and who doesn't want bigger eyes?!
4) Eyeshadow for Eyeliner
This is one of my favorite looks because it is SO soft.
The eyes are super natural looking because instead of eyeliner, the makeup artist used dark brown eyeshadow for eyeliner. Whereas regular eyeliner would look harsh, this creates more of a soft, smokey look.
So, so #pretty.
Bottom line, make sure you look like YOURSELF on your wedding day. All four of these looks are natural, timeless and #classy. The key to makeup is not to make you look like a different person, but to enhance your already natural beautiful features that God gave you!
You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you. -Song of Songs 4:7
