Surprise! We’ve got another amazing guest on the Henkaa blog today talking about the best wedding makeup looks for each and every one of you beautiful brides-to-be. Stephanie Daga from the Blush Pretty team is our go-to makeup guru here at Henkaa, and we’re so excited to have her do a guest post on the blog.

This is the first instalment of a four part mini-series where Stephanie will be sharing her expert makeup tips with us every Thursday. So make sure to check back with us to stay on top of the latest makeup trends.



As we all know, in both the fashion and beauty world trends come and go…and then come and go again. Some trends, we welcome back with open arms and others, well, not so much.

When it comes to bridal beauty, we believe the best wedding makeup looks are the ones that read beautiful, polished, and classic. They steer clear of copying every step of the current trends, (Instagram Brows, anyone?) and stands the test of time year to year, and from bride to bride.

Here are our top three wedding makeup ideas.


#1 Wedding Makeup Look | The Statement Lip

A classic red lip is the wedding makeup look that never goes out of style – it can be worn with jeans and a tee, your LBD, and of course, your wedding gown. This look transcends decades, and while variations of the lip colour may be modified to suit one’s skin tone, personality, and style, the details remain the same: flawless glowing skin, a softly shaded eye with crisp defined winged liner, and defined cheekbones. Not feeling red? No problem. Test other bold shades like fuchsia, violet, or deep wines. There’s a perfect shade for everyone!


#2 Wedding Makeup Look | The Subtle Smokey Eye

Smokey eyes are definitely the most effective way to take your everyday beauty from casual fab to wedding day gorgeous! The key to executing a smokey eye that you’ll love every time you look back at your wedding day photos is to keep the colors soft and well blended. Instead of aiming for a hard black all over the lid, soften it up by using deeper shades of grey and mauve; or perhaps soft browns and champagnes which look wonderful on a fair complexion. You’ll get all the drama of a dark smokey eye, but all the ease of a wedding makeup look that transitions from ceremony to cocktails.


#3 Wedding Makeup Look | The Bridal Glow

Skin is in…especially when it’s glowing and healthy! The last wedding makeup look we love is one that focuses on flawless glowing skin and flushed cheeks. While the eyes and lips remain defined in neutral shades, it’s the peachy shade of blush, or the perfect amount of bronzer that sets off this look. The key tips here are to ensure a great foundation and concealer match, and let false lashes do most of the work with the eyes instead of heavy liner or shadows. Your lips can be defined with a lip pencil and filled in with a sheer lipstick to add the perfect, natural touch that brings the entire look together. It’s a recipe for a perfectly dewy and beautiful bridal makeup look!



When it comes to bridal makeup, the most important thing is to make sure that you feel beautiful! Tell your makeup artist what you like and what you don’t like, what works and what doesn’t work, and they will be able to create the perfect wedding makeup look for you.
