A glam makeup look is characterised by a strong contour, pronounced brows, and lots of lashes. This is a fun makeup look especially if you want to play-up your features, and have some fun creating a look which translates to camera. Don’t forget to finish off with a nude lip before heading out the door.

5 Versatile Makeup Looks For Brides

Old Hollywood

Use colour to your advantage with a bright, matte lip for your wedding day. Since the lips are probably the main part of your makeup look, keep everything else muted down. A clean, fresh makeup base is a must-have so don’t forget to use a good primer to avoid an oily t-zone.



Although most brides prefer layers of makeup on their wedding day, go for something a little less high-maintenance to show off your natural beauty.

A light, powder foundation is a great option since it still lets your freckles show through in the wedding photos. Finish off the look with a cute pink blush on the cheeks.


Smokey eye

Who can resist a smokey eye at the best of times? This classic look was worn by Kim Kardashian on her wedding day, and is a classic look for brides.

Since the eye makeup can be quite heavy, keep everything else toned down and make sure to use liquid products. They melt seamlessly into the skin, and can be easily touched-up for photos.



For a natural look with a twist, why not try metallic eye makeup? It’s ideal for brides with green and blue eye colours, and is so quick and easy to achieve if you’re on a budget.

If you do suffer from oily eyelids, use a primer in conjunction with a cream eyeshadow, and remember to set your makeup with a translucent powder.
