For any bride, choosing a summer wedding is a choice based on scenery and making sure it’s the experience of a lifetime. When it comes to weddings in general, there are a few things that guest will always remember: the dress, the hair and the makeup. Choosing the perfect makeup for a summer wedding can be tricky for a bride, especially because the need to go overboard doesn’t necessarily apply here. Summer bridal makeup doesn’t require a bride to think over the top, but gives her the opportunity to embrace the simple and natural look. If you can’t decide on the makeup look you want for your wedding, fear not, for we’ve gathered our favourite summer bridal makeup looks to get you feeling inspired for your big day.
Gold is never a bad idea
This flawless look screams summer with its bold but tame gold lid, paired with a baby pink lip. A bronzed blush will also give you that perfect summer look because what’s a summer look without a bit of tan?
Neutrals are a girl’s best friend
Neutrals are the epitome of every simple makeup look, as the colours are basic and not too striking. Of course, any neutral colour can be dramatised for effect, but you can feel safe knowing that you won’t be overdoing it.
Embrace your feminine side
There’s no denying that soft, baby pinks are very feminine. Pink shadows have the ability to soften the face while adding a sense of elegance and gentility that every summer bride is looking for.
Get a bit fancy with a wing
Achieving the perfect winged liner requires dedication, persistence and a soft, gentle hand; everything a summer bride strives to be. Winged liner can add a more playful and youthful aspect to your summer bridal look with its cat-eye effect.
All eyes will be on you, so give your guests something to remember with a bright, bold lip. A classic red or bright fushia shade make the perfect choice here.
Glitters and shimmers are girl’s best friend
Any summer look would be incomplete without a glow or shine that’ll have you glowing on your big day. Embrace your natural, bridal glow with a some gold or silver shimmers to really seal the deal.
We’ve left it for the end to give one of the biggest warnings we can give a bride, which is to practice your makeup. You want to know exactly what your makeup artist/friend/self are capable of doing with your look. You want to make sure your makeup matches your wedding aesthetic and the image of yourself you had on your wedding day. You should have at least one practice application before the big day so you can test out looks and you should make sure that you test out your whole look, which means hair as well. You don’t want any surprises on your wedding day!
