It’s officially one of the most popular times of the year to say, “I do.” Whether you’re saying the words yourself or standing alongside your BFF, we can probably predict the color you'll be wearing: blush. Of course, such a stunning color—for a blush bridesmaid dress or a blush wedding dress—calls for a flawless beauty look to match. Not sure where to start? Grab your makeup bag and take a seat to learn the best wedding makeup to go with blush bridesmaid dresses and blush wedding dresses.
Wedding Makeup for a Blush Bridesmaid Dress
Walking down the aisle prior to your gal pal in a blush bridesmaid dress? Read below for a step-by-step makeup look that complements this trendy hue.
Step #1: Perfect your complexion
To start your wedding makeup look, you’ll want to prime your face prior to applying any other makeup. A makeup primer will help blur any imperfections, as well as increase the lifespan of your makeup! As a bridesmaid, you’ll want to have a radiant glow to match the happiness you feel for your BFF on their special day. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Makeup Lock Primer. Then, apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation, which has medium coverage and a radiant finish, to perfect your complexion. Buff your foundation out using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender.
Step #2: Add some color
Once you’ve given yourself a flawless foundation (pun intended), it’s time to add some color to define your features. Since the color of your bridesmaid dress is on the softer end of the spectrum, you’ll want to stick with soft makeup colors. First, use the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Bronze It Bronzer to contour your face. Apply it to the hollows of your cheeks, temples, jawline, and sides of your nose. Then, pop the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush Makeup in Bashful onto your cheekbones for a natural-looking flush.
Step #3: Grab your eye shadow
For your eye shadow, you’ll want to create a subtle pink and brown smoky eye. Use the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Avenue Des Roses to do just that. First, take either pink shade on a flat eye shadow brush and pack it onto your lid. Then, use the medium brown shade to define your crease. Blend the colors together using a fluffy brush—we don’t want any harsh lines on your friend’s big day. Finish your eye shadow by applying the lightest shade to your inner corner, blending it out to the center of your lid.
Step #4: Line your eyes
Take your eye makeup up a notch with the help of a little eyeliner. First, apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Nude to your waterline. This will create the appearance of well-rested, bright eyes. Then, apply the L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Ivy along your upper and lower lash line to define your lashes without creating an overly harsh contrast (which a black eyeliner could do).
Step #5: Coat your lashes
Complete your eyes by applying a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara—just in case you tear up seeing your BFF walk down the aisle!
Step #6: Paint your pout
You’re almost done! When it comes to your lips, you want to steer clear of any popping shades while sticking with a formula that will last throughout the night. Use the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in I Empower to coat your lips in a peachy pink hue.
Step #7: Seal the deal
Now that your wedding makeup look is complete, spritz the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray over your face to maintain a “just applied” makeup look all day and night!
Bridal Makeup for a Blush Wedding Dress
Need a wedding makeup idea for your special day? Don’t fret—we have you covered. Follow the steps below for a makeup look that's perfect for your blush wedding dress.
Step #1: Create a flawless complexion
Your wedding is all about you—and a day that’s centered on you calls for a perfect complexion. First, prime your face using the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi-Shake and Glow Dew Mist, which will give you a radiant glow that’s fitting for a bride-to-be. Then, smooth the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight over your face. This foundation has a long-lasting, full coverage, sweat, water, and transfer-resistant formula, meaning it’ll last from the first look to the last kiss of the night.
Step #2: Contour your face
Your wedding day calls for a contoured face, so grab your bronzer and get to it! Apply it to the hollows of your cheeks, temples, jawline, and sides of your nose. Finish your face makeup by applying the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Blush in Tender Rose onto the apples of your cheeks.
Step #3: Define your brows
You can’t walk down the aisle without brows on fleek! Use an eyebrow mascara, like the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara, to create a naturally thicker-looking brow that won’t look overly dramatic.
Step #4: Apply your eye shadow
It’s time to get down to business. For your wedding makeup, you want to use your eye shadow to accentuate your natural beauty. We love the look of a bronze eye with a blush wedding dress. First, apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Crushed Foils Metallic Eye Shadow in Diamond Dust onto your lid. Then, pop the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Bronzed Taupe into your crease. Drag that same color along your lower lash line for a subtle, sultry touch.
Step #5: Grab your liner
When it comes to lining your eyes on your wedding day, you want to create a smooth, sleek, and small wing on your upper lash line. Use the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise™ Liquid Eyeliner in Black for this step.
Step #6: Amp up your lashes
No doubt, you’ll want long, voluminous lashes for this occasion! Apply a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Waterproof Mascara Blackest Black for an instant lash-lift effect that will stay put through any mid-vow tears (happy ones, of course).
Step #7: Color your lips
Paint your pout in a wash of pink with the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature, Lasting Matte Liquid Lipstick in I Create. The lasting formula will ensure your lip look survives all those newlywed kisses.
Step #8: Set your makeup
You’re almost done! Grab the face mist you used to prime, and spritz it over your face to seal in your makeup and give your visage a natural, dewy glow.
