Choosing the Best Wedding Makeup

This one little decision is literally ruling my life at the moment.

Not only are there so many choices BUT how do I know what look I want captured for the rest of my life.  Whew, big decision right?  I know that I'm putting way too much emphasis on this little detail but lets recap a couple things: One, I am beyond obsessed with makeup and two, my wedding colors are the color shadow trend of the summer.  (Turquoise, indigo, yellow and coral.)

So, yes, this decision is important.

Since we're not having a formal wedding (think vintage backyard picnic theme) I know that ultra classic makeup isn't the look I want.  On that note, here are a few samples of makeup "themes" I'm tossing around my head.

Sigh, this look is absolutely gorgeous!  Yes, I know that less is more but man, there's something so edgy in the idea of me sporting this look while in my lace wedding dress.  Hmmmm.

Peacock Trend

Though the "peacock" isn't playing too heavily into my theme (aside from my shoes, sash and jewelry) I am really liking the idea of wearing some peacock-inspired makeup.  Not only would my blue eyes pop but it adds just the right amount of shimmer.

Traditional Vintage

I know I said I wasn't traditional but I do like the classic bright lips BIG lashes look.  Of course, my lips would be fuchsia and not red but still, this look could also really work.

Love the bold cheeks!  Actually, love this whole look.  I know that less is more on your wedding day and really think that this makeup style promotes that saying.

Simplistic Style

Could this be the vintage, simplistic, natural look I have been after?  Could be.  I must say, her bangs are really what makes this look work.  (Lucky for me I do have big bangs...)

What is your favorite wedding makeup look?

  2. i was obsessed with makeup for 14 months straight before my wedding day... when I finally found the person to do it, I had a trial with her first, describing my dress, my theme, and the feel I wanted... i opted for big eyes, with lots of individual fake lashes... i loved my makeup on my day... but I didn't enjoy the stress of finding the look and the person to do it :)

    1. Hi Lucy, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who is obsessed with my day-of makeup. Your look sounds beautiful!

  3. I vote for simplistic. It looks awesome with the bangs, and still gives you the big lashes and fuchsia lips you've been wanting.. without the added drama or "traditional" feel of vintage.

    1. I'm starting to agree with you about the last pic. I'm thinking it might be the way to go as well

  4. I think neutrals always look good for a wedding and you could add a sexy red lip for the evening?
