Planning a wedding is no easy task, but the last thing you should worry about is how you’ll look. When your big day comes, all that should be painted across your face is a smile and whatever makeup you feel confident in. We’ve put together some of our favorite makeup tips and tricks for any bridal style.
Winged Eyeliner and Red Lips
A timeless classic is a winged eye and red lip. This gel eyeliner by Essence will create a subtle or bold wing – whatever style you’re comfortable with. The best part? It’s waterproof, smudge-proof, and comes in multiple colors.

Pastels, like this lilac palette from Lancome, are beautiful as well. Lilacs especially work best with brown eyes since it brings out the gold in them.
Coralista by Benefit is the perfect shade that gives you both color and highlight at the same time. Plus, it smells amazing.
Speaking of adding a glow to your face, highlighter is a staple. Whether you like a subtle glow like the Living Luminizer by RMS Beauty, or more in your face like Champagne Pop by Becca (any shade from Becca works, too), no one will be able to take their eyes off you.

Mascara is always a wedding makeup staple (especially waterproof!). Better Than Sex by Too Faced is cruelty-free, vegan, and gives your lashes lift and fullness. There’s also a drugstore alternative to it as well: Loreal Voluminous Lash Paradise.
You don’t want to forget a setting spray, especially if your wedding is in the summer and outdoors. Not only does the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water prep and prime your face for makeup, you can use it throughout the day to refresh your makeup.
