Every bride deserves to look flawless on her big day—and we happen to think her guests do too. But since you won’t have a professional makeup artist and frequent touch-ups throughout the evening to help you, we’ve rounded up five chic, easy-to-copy looks. No matter what kind of wedding you’ve been invited to, you’ll find one that suits the occasion, so click through to shop everything you need.
A seaside wedding calls for an understated palette that doesn’t look too harsh under the sunlight. “Our Lip Sheer in Twig, a pink-meets-beige color, looks gorgeous on everyone,” says Christy Coleman, Head of Creative Design and a fashion and celebrity makeup artist. “Our Eye Duo in Peach/Bronze is a matte pinkish-peach and a warm golden metallic with a hint of sheen that reflects light when you put it on, ideal for this outdoor venue.”
A wedding in the garden means your makeup should be fresh and pretty, just like your surroundings. “Combine our Cream Blusher in Hibiscus and Lip Gloss in Peony when you want a youthful, innocent look,” Christy says. The results—rosy cheeks and subtly shiny lips—are perfectly suited for the casual ceremony.
HOTEL/COUNTRY CLUB WEDDING
For nuptials taking place in a more refined setting, like a hotel or country club, opt for an appropriately sophisticated vibe. “Our Cream Blusher in Caramel and Lip Gloss in Buff are a cool, neutral pairing that transitions easily into evening,” Christy says. “Worn together, they offer a chic color combo.”
Invited to a metropolitan matrimonial affair? For a bold look that will pop in pictures, opt for our Eye Duo in Fawn/Night and Lip Sheer in Scarlet. “Scarlet is easy to layer for more color if you want a strong statement. However, it’s also a great shade for those who tend to shy away from red but want to wear more color on their lips,” Christy says.
If you’re attending a wedding at a vineyard—or some other slightly unusual location—celebrate the occasion with a twist on classic red or pink. “Our Cream Blusher in Umber and Lip Gloss in Sienna, which are earthy, brown berry hues, impart a natural, healthy glow, like you just went on a hike,” Christy says. Keep the focus on lips and cheeks by downplaying your eyes with Eye Duo in Pearl/Champagne.
