Amy’s Top 5 Bridal Makeup Looks for 2023
01. SMOKEY EYES & SHEER SHIMMER
While shimmer and sparkle have always been a part of the bridal makeup scene, letting the shimmer be sheer and opaque has become extremely popular. It will give a softer, ethereal effect, creating the perfect bridal eye look!
Want to add a bold element? Delicate embellishments such as rhinestones, pearls or a bold eyeliner color will help add that pop of something special!

02. NATURAL BEAUTIFUL FALSE LASHES
False lashes are always in, so don’t be afraid to rock them on your big day! They are a statement that adds depth and truly completes your eye look. Natural to medium individual and strip lashes are soft and offer enough fullness to ensure your eyes pop in photos. Don’t worry, your makeup artist will be able to recommend the right style for you!

03. GLOSSY LIPS & BOLD COLORS
Brides, I’m such a huge fan of this trend and love a gorgeous glossy lip! Think shiny and sheer coverage in shades of soft pink and peach. Your makeup artist will be able to help customize and choose the perfect shade just for you. If you are a bold bride, consider a stunning red lip (which pairs perfectly with a minimal makeup look).
PRO TIP: Using lip masks will hydrate and prep your lips for the perfect gorgeous pout on your big day. Make sure you chat with your artist about having your lip color to touch up with throughout the day!

04. CLOUD SKIN
Skin is in my friends! The Cloud Skin trend is stunning and gives a complexion that glows and looks soft and velvety. It’s a beautiful balance of radiant and matte finishes that gives you a romantic glow from within. By using luminous primers and lightweight foundations your skin will look and feel like skin, which is a win for every bride!
Don’t forget about the rest of your body as well! As an alternative to getting a spray tan, use a self-tanner like NuSkin’s Sunright Instaglow. It works with your skin tone to give you a natural looking tan that is streak free, transfer proof, glowing and gorgeous!
05. SKIN CARE
Take it from me, your artist wants you to pamper yourself and take care of your skin! Having a skincare routine leading up to your wedding will help you achieve a smooth and radiant complexion. The more hydrated your skin is, the better your makeup is going to look. Girl, you’re getting married – it’s okay to spoil yourself!
Start by establishing a daily cleansing routine. One way to easily do so: the Lumi Spa. This is the number one cleansing device on the market and is a personal favorite of mine! It gently cleanses your skin and cleans your pores, while also helping to boost collagen levels and give you that youthful glow. Talk about your own personal spa treatment at home! Combine that with a gentle toner, and face oil/moisturizer, and you’ll start to see results with regular daily use.
If you’re looking to update your skincare routine, I have the perfect Luxe Bridal Skincare bundle put together just for you! Snag yours at the link above and enjoy a discount on me.
