Easy Makeup Looks for Wedding Guests

You got the invitation to your friend’s wedding. How exciting! You bought a new dress and shoes and that eye candy bag you always wanted, but when you got home you realize that you have no idea what type of makeup goes with your new outfit. Should you do a smokey eye and red lips or just go with a more bare look? You don’t want to upstage the bride, but you also want to look good. If you’re having trouble figuring out what kind of makeup look a wedding guest should wear, we’ve got you covered.

Focus on Your Eyes

A beauty look focused on eyeliner can transform your entire face in a very big way, but without upstaging the bride or looking like a member of the bridal party. To achieve this makeup look, apply a bold black gel eyeliner along your upper lash line. We love this Bobbi Brown gel liner, because it makes lining your eyes like a pro really easy. Apply a dab of lipstick in a subtle pink color. This blush nude shade by Tom Ford goes perfect with your liner. Complete your look with a skin luminizer for radiant, glowing skin.

Play up Your Lips

For this look the focal point are your lips, so the rest of your face should have as little makeup as possible. Start with a fresh-face (glowing skin is the best beauty trick) by applying a multitasking tinted moisturizer like Clinique’s BB Cream which works as a light foundation and helps your makeup stay longer. Dab shimmery champagne eyeshadow to your upper lash line and wear

bright lips to complete your look. We love this fuchsia shade by Yves Saint Laurent.

Give Subtle Makeup a Try

An all natural subtle makeup look is perfect for a wedding guest to her friend’s big day. Start by adding a rosy blush like this one from Dior that matches the color of your cheeks when they’re pinched. Sweep a metallic eyeshadow along your upper lash line to make your eyes sparkle. Finish the look by applying rosy lipstick. That’s all you need for a glam, sophisticated makeup look.
