Perfect your wedding makeup look with these 5+ tutorials

Life is filled with big moments, but your wedding day will be one of the few you remember all your life. A lot of thought and preparation goes into picking everything from the venue to the dress, and choosing a makeup style can be equally complex.
One of the best ways to select a makeup style is to consider where and when the wedding will take place. Outdoor weddings, whether held in spring or summer, call for natural colors and a radiant finish. Evening weddings are often more dramatic, so full-on glam is an option then.

No matter what you're planning, do a full dress rehearsal to practice your makeup routine. The big day is never a good time to test an untried look or product.
To get started, check out these tutorials.
Luminous with lashes
Achieving a bright-eyed bridal look doesn't have to be complicated. Skip the bold eye shadow and heavy eyeliner; instead, focus on opening up the eye area. This tutorial shows how to create a soft but glamorous look by using false lashes. The rest of the makeup is subtle, which draws all attention to your pretty eyes. Get the tutorial here.
Perfectly peach
If you have a spring or summer wedding planned, then draw inspiration from all the blooming trees. This romantic peaches-and-cream makeup look uses unifying eye, cheek and lip colors and is set against a dewy foundation. Start with hydrated skin, and apply a luminizing primer to achieve the best results. Get the tutorial here.
Eyes on the bride
With so many matte neutral eye shadow palettes to choose from, natural bridal makeup is more popular than ever. For this natural look, use a sequence of warm neutral shades to give the eyes dimension. Don't worry if your eye area has discoloration; a layer of cream shadow will hide it, and a duo of concealer under the eye will brighten any darkness. False lashes create further drama, so pick up a really good pair for your big day. Get the tutorial here.
Beautiful in burgundy
Evening weddings always call for a little extra drama. Although pink and rose are always in fashion, opt for deep burgundy eye shadow for your nighttime gala. This look draws attention to the eyes but remains balanced because the lip color is subtle. Add some false lashes (or eyelash extensions, if you prefer) to complete this glamorous bridal look. Get the tutorial here.
You're making me blush
When people talk about the "look of love," they're often commenting on a bride's radiance. This makeup look uses neutral, peach and pink tones to create a lit-from-within glow. There's no need for liquid liner, false lashes or heavy lipstick because natural tones and a glossy lip make for a fresh and naturally beautiful look. Get the tutorial here.
Beach bride
Outdoor weddings are hopelessly romantic. If your special day calls for sand and surf, keep things simple and opt for a natural makeup look. Play up the natural beauty of your eyes by using a trio of neutral eye shadow colors. Bronzer and blush should enhance your appearance without looking too obvious. And since you'll be kissing more than just your groom, select a hydrating lip treatment that adds shine while keeping your lips moist and plump all day. Get the tutorial here.
