The lighting… The glow… The goddess-y sheen! Oh how we love the sun-kissed bridal look.
Golden Bridal Goddess Makeup & Hair… It’s all about bronzed skin, highlighter, gold eyeshadow, and shimmery nude lips—it’s sensually perfect and oh so right for the Summer bride. These glowing looks serve as major bridal beauty inspiration.
“O, Sunlight! The most precious gold to be found on Earth.” Take a cue from the golden sun and try this natural gold dusted eye makeup look for your wedding. Because when it comes to bridal makeup, “Instagram makeup” might be fun to scroll through and look at, but walking around, let’s be real, it can be a bit much. This is the perfect amount of something bold and gold that you can wear without it overwhelming your dress and jewelry. Remember to offset the golden hues of your eyes with an iridescent white-gold highlight on the inner corners of your eyes.
If you look to the runway for golden goddess inspirations, there are plenty of chic styles, from romantically rumpled braids to delightfully mussed chignons. And adding a laurel wreath gold leaf headband will dazzle your bridal hairstyle even more!
Step it up from the classic “blushing bride” to a modern “bronzed bride” with a shimmery, yet photo-ready look. A bronzed all-over finish makes your body and face the perfect canvas for your modern day bridal goddess look.
Gold does not have to be confined to just your eyes. A golden lip is an unexpected way to make your bridal look your own. Dab on to the top center and beneath the bottom lip to highlight and create a fuller look with serious shine. Mix a touch in with golden lip-gloss for a shimmer.
This is definitely a bolder look, but so beautiful in its own right. From classic Grecian goddess to trendy temptress, there is a diverse range of golden makeup styles for all brides.
