23 Wedding Makeup Ideas For 2023 Brides

Wedding season is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to start your bridal prep. When it comes to your wedding makeup look, there is no right or wrong, no rules and no guidebook, which low-key makes picking a look for the big day even harder. You’ve got to look back at these photos and memories forever (no pressure) so we need to make sure that you a. feel comfortable, b. feel like yourself and c. feel beautiful.

Whether you fancy a classic dewy, skin tint moment with a nude lip or want to amp up the drama with a subtle smoky eye and a red lip, we’ve done some digging and found the best bridal makeup looks- that are going to help make your decision a whole lot easier.
