Makeup Ideas For Wedding Guest

Determining how to do your makeup when you’re a wedding guest can be a challenge. You want to look good for the hundreds of photos and videos that will be taken, but you also don’t want to go for a look that is too flashy for the special occasion. The key to achieving the best makeup look for a wedding is all about finding the right balance.

You can choose to play up one feature on your face (eyes or lips) or go all out with a soft glam look. If you’re struggling to pick the perfect makeup look to pair with your outfit, we can help. Read on for the best seven wedding makeup ideas you can rock at the nuptials coming up on your social calendar.

1. Glowy, Bronzed Skin

We know — glowing skin is something you want every day, not just when you’re at a wedding! So feel free to wear this to any occasion, but especially to those special events. Reach for a long-lasting foundation or foundation alternative that gives off a dewy finish, such as the L'Oréal Paris True Match Hyaluronic Tinted Serum


For an extra lit-from-within look, use the L'Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer before layering on your foundation or follow up with a few strokes of a shimmery bronzer like the L'Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Bronze It Bronzer.

2. Nude Eyeshadow

For a classic, timeless eyeshadow look, opt for nude eyeshadow shades. The L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude comes with 10 different eye shadow shades in three finishes: shimmer, matte, and sheen. Play around with the hues that complement your skin and eye color best for an alluring wedding makeup look. 


3. Pretty Pastel Eyeshadow

Pretty pastel hues aren’t just for bridesmaid bouquets — they also make for a great eyeshadow look for guests. For a pretty pastel pink, try the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Mademoiselle Pink or the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eyeshadow in Avenue Des Roses. If purple is more your style, go for the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Violet Amour.


4. Dramatic Lashes

Lashes can elevate your entire wedding look in seconds, so make sure to use a mascara that can help you build big and bold eyelashes.

Reach for the L'Oréal Paris Air Volume Mega Mascara, Lightweight Mega Volume Washable in Blackest Black, which has an air-whipped formula that works to create mega volume without weighing down your lashes. Its double bristle brush captures, separates, and coats every lash from the root to the tip for thick and fuller-looking lashes.

Editor’s tip: If you’re worried about tears or messy mascara streaks, reach for the L'Oréal Paris Air Volume Mega Mascara Waterproof, Lightweight in Black. It has a silky formula that will glide onto your lashes easily and won’t flake, clump up, or smudge throughout the day.

5. Understated Eyeliner

Save your dramatic winged eyeliner skills for another night and go for a softer eyeliner look instead. Reach for the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Black to tightline your eyes. Gently pull up on your eyelid to expose the upper waterline and fill in the space at the base of your lashes. This will help make your lashes appear darker and thicker.

6. Peach Pout

If you’re looking for a lip color that’s not too bold but also not bland, opt for a soft peach — preferably one with some shine to give your pout a plumped look. Try the L’Oréal Paris Glow Paradise Balm-in-Lipstick in the shade Peach Charm. This tinted balm keeps lips hydrated while giving a flush of color and a glowy finish.

Editor’s tip: Nude lips are also another wedding beauty staple. They pair well with almost any outfit and can be customized to your liking with a lip liner and lip gloss. Reach for the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Les Nus by Colour Riche Intense Nude Lipstick. The line features 12 flattering nude shades that are richly pigmented and non-drying.  

7. Purple Flushed Cheeks

The right blush can add the perfect amount of flush to your cheeks, creating a warm and youthful makeup look. Purple blush has been trending lately, and it’s a great choice for a healthy-looking glow. We recommend the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Radiant Satin Blush in the shade Berry — simply swipe onto your cheekbones and then blend out any harsh lines with a fluffy brush.
