Gown? Check. Shoes? Check. Venue? Check. Flower arrangements? Check. If you’re getting married this summer, you’ve probably gone through your wedding day to-do list more times than you can count in order to ensure that everything is set for your big day. But, in that list full of seating chart adjustments and song choices, did you remember to decide on your wedding makeup look? Although you might be in love with your simple, everyday makeup routine, your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime experience where a little extra thought can go a long way. After all, just think about all the pictures you’re about to be in, don't you want your eye makeup to look even more amazing than usual when it's captured on camera? That's what we thought! So, before you reach for your go-to makeup products, take a peek at our 15 bridal makeup ideas for summer 2019 that are perfect for walking down the aisle and saying “I do.”

BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOK #1: SMOKY CUT CREASE

Ready to show off your blending skills? A dramatic cut crease can add just the je ne sais quoi you’re looking for to complete your wedding day look. Heavier than traditional bridal makeup, a smoky cut crease with a beautiful ombré effect on your lids is the something special your look needs. The best part? You can do it with any colors you choose! The trick to making it smoky is to choose an eyeshadow palette that includes one darker shadow for added depth.

BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOK #2: MONOCHROMATIC MAKEUP

Instead of trying to figure out which makeup shades will look best together on your complexion, why not take a hint from one of this year’s biggest fashion trends and go for a monochromatic makeup look? Whether you choose to go all blush, all plum, or all coral—the trick to nailing this single-color makeup look is to apply it onto your lids, lips, and cheeks to tie everything together.

BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOK #3: SHIMMERY CHAMPAGNE LIDS AND LIPS

Your wedding day is the perfect time to pop bottles—and to emulate your favorite celebratory beverage with your makeup look. Combine shimmery champagne and pale pink shadows, such as the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Little Beige Dress and the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Mademoiselle Pink, and you’ll be rocking a gorgeous look that’s totally cheers-worthy.

BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOK #4: SPARKLING LOWER LASH LINE

Embrace the gorgeous upside-down eye makeup trend by coating your lower lash line in a light shimmering shade, such as the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Paris Beach. The light color will help open up your eyes for a brighter look, while the shimmering effect will perfectly complement the sparkle in your eye.

BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOK #5: BEAUTIFUL IN BERRY

So, you’re not about to wear red down the aisle but you’re looking for a pop of color that’s not your everyday pink either? Think about adding a little bit of berry to your bridal makeup look. By lightly blending a berry shadow—like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Glistening Garnet—into your crease, you’ll be able to achieve just enough definition without going overboard. Pair it with berry-tinted blush and a slightly darker berry lip—try the L'Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in I Enjoy—and you’ll be berry beautiful.

BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOK #6: WELL-RESTED IN WHITE

Let’s be real: There’s about zero chance that you’re going to be able to get a good night’s sleep before your big day—really, the excitement will be at an all-time high! But just because you didn’t get a great rest doesn’t mean you have to let everyone know it. With a swipe of white eye shadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Petite Perle, blended onto your lids, inner corners, and along your lower lash lines, you’ll be able to create a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed look. Pair it with a pale pink blush and lip for a beautiful, natural-looking statement.

BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOK #7: NEUTRAL SMOKY EYE

You can never go wrong with neutrals, or a smoky eye. All you need is a multi-colored neutral palette, like the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Scented Eyeshadow Palette, to combine the two for one amazing look. Simply start with an all-over dusting of the shade that’s closest to your skin tone, followed by a darker shade blended into your crease and a medium shade swept across your lids. Next, add a touch of pale shadow just underneath the tail of your eyebrow and at the inner corners of your eyes for a lifting and brightening effect. Once you’ve roughly placed all of your shadows, make sure to blend fully so as to get rid of any noticeable lines. Finish your look with a coat of mascara and a rosy lip, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick Shine Lipstick in Burnished Blush, to balance and complete your look.

BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOK #8: ROSE GOLD EYES

Want to steer outside the norm but still keep things subtle? Look no further than rose gold eye makeup. Not only is this look a serious trend for brides all over, it also perfectly conveys the warmth that goes hand in hand with summertime. Paint your lids in a rose gold hue, then pop a medium brown shade into your crease to blend the color out and add definition.  

BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOK #9: YOUR SHARPEST WINGS

Who said you can’t add a little drama to your wedding day eye makeup look? A sleek, sharp wing takes even the subtlest eye makeup look to the next level without going too far. Just be sure to use a liquid eyeliner that will allow you to get a precise, smooth line, like the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Liquid Eyeliner in Black.

BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOK #10: BUTTERY SKIN

Dewy, glowing skin is all the rage for 2019. And what better day to get your glow on than on your wedding day? Enter buttery skin—the latest makeup trend that’s all about creating the look of skin that’s as smooth as butter. It’s the perfect way to represent how you’re glowing on the inside, on the outside! Here’s our article, Buttery Skin is the Next Big Makeup Trend, for all the details on how to get the look.

BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOK #11: PASTEL PINK

Another on-trend makeup look? Pastel pink! Give yourself an all-over flush on your wedding day with baby pink lids, cheeks, and lips. You can use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Always Pearly Pink, L’Oréal Paris True Match Blush in Baby Blossom, and L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in I Create to get this soft, romantic look.

BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOK #12: GOLDEN EYES

You know what they say—everything is better in gold. Paint your lids with a golden hue for a look that’s worth a million bucks. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Crushed Foils Metallic Eye Shadow in Gilded Gold on your lids, bringing the same hue along your lower lash line for an added touch of luxe.

BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOK #13: GLOSSY LIPS

Lip gloss is making a serious comeback, so consider giving your lips a glossy boost on your wedding day. To do so, paint your pout with a shade from the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 8 HR Le Gloss line.

BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOK #14: PRETTY IN PEACH

Another popular hue, peach is a beautiful shade fit for any blushing bride. Walk down the aisle wearing subtle peach eye makeup paired with a pretty peach pout. Want a step-by-step tutorial? Here’s How to Wear Peach Eye Makeup.

BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOK #15: BRONZE EYES

We’d argue there’s no makeup look that says summer more than bronze eyes. First, swipe the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Amber Rush onto your lids. Then, define your crease with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Bronze Taupe. Finish the look with a swipe of liquid liner along your upper lash line and a few coats of mascara.

HOW TO APPLY YOUR BRIDAL MAKEUP

Now that you have a better idea of the main feature of your wedding day makeup look, whether that’s a shimmery lid color or a popping lip, it’s time to think about your complexion as a whole. Below, we’re sharing seven steps for your bridal face makeup routine.

STEP 1: APPLY PRIMER TO START

Before applying any makeup to your face, it’s a good idea to start with a primer. Using this product can help create an even base for makeup application, as well as ensure that your look stays in place while you dance the night away with your new spouse. To apply, smooth the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Lock Makeup Primer dot by dot in a gentle circular motion all over your face.

STEP 2: DAB ON COLOR CORRECTING CONCEALER

It’s your wedding day, which means there’s no room for skin issues to get in the way of your big bridal moment. Luckily for you, you can help neutralize the look of redness, under-eye darkness, dullness, and discoloration with color-correcting concealers. The L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Color Correcting Crayon comes in five colors: yellow to hide blue or purple areas, green to neutralize redness, peach for dark circles on those with fair to light skin tones, bisque for dark circles on those with light to medium skin tones, and orange for dark circles on those with medium to dark skin tones. Use your shade(s) of choice sparingly, then blend out.

STEP 3: USE A LONG-LASTING FOUNDATION

When it comes to using foundation on your wedding day, you want it to look seamlessly applied without being overdone. And you also won’t want it to smudge or smear! That’s why it’s a good idea to opt for a longwear, buildable foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight, so that you can work your way up to your ideal coverage. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender to buff the foundation onto your face, building as needed.

STEP 4: BAKE YOUR MAKEUP

No, we’re not talking about doing anything in the kitchen. Rather, makeup baking is all about setting your concealer to help create a brightening effect and make your makeup last longer. Just think of your favorite celebrities’ red carpet looks and you’ll get the idea. For this technique, apply a liquid concealer, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer Waterproof, Full Coverage, in a shade that’s lighter than your skin tone in upside-down triangle shapes underneath your eyes and down the center of your nose. Add a dab on your chin and a smidge on your forehead, too, and be sure to blend the concealer out using a makeup blender. Then, gently pack loose powder—try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Sweep & Lock Loose Setting Face Powder—over top of your liquid concealer. Once you’ve finished doing that, allow your makeup to “bake” for 10 minutes. While you’re hanging out, this is the perfect opportunity to fill in your brows or do any other last minute wedding prep before it’s time to dust off the powder.

STEP 5: CONTOUR FOR CHISELED-LOOKING FEATURES

To help give your face a bit more definition, use a cream-based foundation or concealer to contour. Pick a one of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Foundation Shaping Sticks in a hue that’s two shades darker than your skin tone and apply it to the hollows of your cheeks, temples, the sides of your nose, and your jawline. Be sure to blend it all out (using your makeup blender) for a seamless finish.

STEP 6: HIGHLIGHT, HIGHLIGHT, HIGHLIGHT

Next up, a gorgeous glow! All you have to do to achieve a semblance of radiance—apart from being as thrilled as you already are—is to pat on some liquid highlighter, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator. Blend it along your cheekbones and on the tip of your nose for just enough luminosity. This highlighter is available in three shades: Golden to enhance peachy or yellow tones in warm skin tones; Rose to enhance peachy, pink, or blue tones in neutral skin tones; and Ice to enhance pink or blue tones in cool skin tones.

STEP 7: SEAL YOUR LOOK WITH SETTING SPRAY

Now that you’ve completed applying your face makeup, you definitely want to help make sure that it lasts through the reception, right? That’s where setting spray comes in! This should be the last step in your bridal makeup routine. Just give your face a spritz of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray to seal in your final look. Hold the bottle eight to ten inches away from your head and spray four to six times in an X and T motion.
