Beautiful Autumn Bridal Make-Up

September 15 2016

" Summer is long gone and September is now in full swing, which means only one thing: Autumn is on the way! Which is why today we’re talking about gorgeous Autumnal bridal make-up. "

When I think of Autumn I think of warm brown shades, rich berry tones and dusty oranges, and I think these particular shades work beautifully for wedding make-up. You can create a wonderfully dramatic bridal look or something subtle and natural. Take a peek at our Autumn bridal make-up ideas…

Beautiful Berry

Autumn is a fab excuse to pull off a statement lip – but one with a twist! Although you may love a bold red lipstick, why not consider something with hints of plum or blackcurrant? A dark berry lip is the perfect way to reflect the season, and it’ll look seriously romantic. Berry lipsticks are on trend this year and it’s so easy to find a shade that matches your skin tone perfectly. You can also go down any route with your eye-make up – why not opt for dusty rose eyeshadow to compliment your lipstick, rather than to overpower it! Our Persephone Vintage Birdcage Veil looks fab teamed with a statement lipstick – all you need now is a sophisticated flick of eyeliner.

Smoky Eyes

Dark, smoky eye make-up is perfect for an Autumn or Winter wedding. Blend grey and black together for a dramatic aisle style – you’re guaranteed to turn heads. If you want something slightly more understated, use an assortment of brown, cream and gold eyeshadow. Keep your lipstick understated so that your eye-make up makes the statement. Looking to ‘wow’ as you walk down the aisle? Then check out our Skye Lace Hair Vine – the vintage lace motif is oh so elegant, and is made for this bridal make-up look!

Go Golden

While sparkly silver is perfect for a Winter wedding, gold is simply made for Autumn. Opt for for a variety of golden eyeshadow including champagne gold and even rose gold! Compliment with a few dashes of highlighter along your cheekbones and under your eyebrow – you’ll be glowing as you make your way down the aisle! Golden shades are bound to make you feel luxurious, and our Rose Gold Sienna Headband is the perfect finishing touch. This look is made for the glamorous bride-to-be!

Autumnal Orange

Orange may not be the first colour that comes to mind when you think of bridal make-up, but it can work beautifully if you get it right. Blend warm orange eyeshadow with a dark brown shade – the combination of colours will really make your eyes stand out. Finish the look off with nude brown lips and a dash of peach-toned blusher. The Margaux Rose Gold Horseshoe has delicate cream and rose gold accents that will look fab in your wedding bouquet – and it’s the perfect match for this make-up style! Opt for rich red and orange wedding blooms.

Keep It Natural

It’s important that you look and feel like ‘YOU’ on your wedding day, so if you usually keep your make-up understated it’s best to keep it that way on your wedding day. A few lashings of mascara and a subtle rose red lip will look beautiful. Highlight your cheekbones with berry blusher for a healthy, fresh-faced look. This bridal make-up style is simple but still works perfectly for this season. You can never go wrong with natural nude shades! Looking for something sparkly for your hair that is also subtle? Our Louisa Hair Comb adds just a touch of glimmer, which will work wonderfully if you’ve opted for an minimalist bridal style.
