New beauty looks – what should you experiment with for your wedding?

Wedding beauty

When it comes to your wedding, you may feel most comfortable with a tried and tested makeup style. Yet your wedding can actually be a great time to push the boundaries and experiment. Read on for our tips when opting for a more unique, bold makeup look.

Experiment with the help of the experts

One of the best ways to play around with a new makeup look is by enlisting the help of a makeup artist. Although that can mean the assistance of a qualified beauty professional, the guidance available on Youtube from makeup gurus and from beauty blogs is invaluable too.

Many professional makeup artists have their own makeup channels and offer pointers, beauty tips and step by step tutorials. These are a great place to start if you are looking for expert advice and to experiment with new looks without the excess costs.

Experimenting with different looks beforehand, with the help of Youtube beauty gurus, is a great way to try out different creative and glamourous looks before your wedding day. Goss Makeup Artist is one such YouTube channel, run by professional makeup artist, Wayne Goss. Wayne offers lots of practical tips and also undertakes makeovers, that you can easily follow along and try out for yourself.

Many brides also like to experiment with makeup artists in real life. Makeup artists can introduce you to a new world of different beauty looks and they will have the experience and talent to help you find the most flattering look for you. They can be a great option for getting you out of a beauty rut, while also making sure that you don’t go overboard or end up with a look you’re unhappy with.

A bold lip


A bold lip is a wonderful experimental makeup choice for a wedding day. A bold lip brings life, colour and glamour to a bride’s look. For a flattering bold lip, match your lip to the season, your hair and skintone. If you have a warm skintone, go for orange and bronze shades of reds. If you are paler, opt for blue-based pinks and reds. As long as you get the base right, you can experiment with a number of fun, playful colours.

Wines and berries are beautiful shades for fall, bright pops of pinks and peach are ideal for springtime and summer, and red is a classic all year round. Play around with different shades at a beauty counter to discover the ideal lip colour for your wedding day.

A smokey eye

Bold eye makeup

A smokey eye or bold eyeshadow choice is a creative option. There are a number of outstanding colours on the market – why not go for a brighter eyeliner for a fun, yet understated look?

Woman Getting Married explains how to get it right below:

“One of the more standard looks here is the smoky-eye. When paired with a red lip, the result has the classic Old Hollywood glamour look. Chic, but not without drama. Plus, a smoky-eye can be done with so many different colors (we’ve even seen purple!), making this one of the more versatile looks for brides seeking drama.”

A new look

Your wedding day is a great time to push the boundaries and to find the beauty look that is most flattering to you. Don’t be shy about trying something new – you might just find an exciting and dramatic style for your special day and beyond.
