Wedding guest: makeup

How to do your makeup for attending a wedding - wedding guest makeup ideas!

How to do your makeup for a wedding? We put together our top tips to help you bring your whole wedding beauty look together! As a wedding guest, in general we recommend focusing on playing up either your eyes OR lips - that way you won’t look over-the-top or upstage the bride. Go with a bold lip and light eye makeup, or vice versa. Another option is to do an overall soft/natural/pretty look with light colors. Or lastly, you could go all-out glam with a full face which is appropriate for certain settings such as a fancy evening wedding.


Want to play up your lips? See great examples here - pink, red, burgundy, and orange are all options.



If you want to go with a bold eye, here are great examples. How about a bronze smokey eye, purple eyeliner, or a strong black wing?



Soft, feminine makeup is really nice for a wedding guest outfit. You could go with a very minimal no-makeup type of look if you like, or you could do a look that’s especially goddess-like and ethereal.



Going to a fancy black tie affair (or just love lots of makeup)? Try a glamorous makeup look with bold eyes and lips.
