Traditionally, the month of June is the perfect time to get married because of the goddess Juno, who is said to be the protector of women in all aspects of life. We’re well into the month, and weddings are happening here and there. Which only means one thing: bridal inspiration is everywhere.
While some brides wish to have glamourous looks complete with elaborate eyeshadows and intensely pigmented lippies, others just want it fresh and effortless-looking. And we don’t blame them. After all, natural is said to be the new extraordinary because it tends not to overpower the wedding dress and reveal the bride’s beauty more.
If you’re a fan of natural beauty looks, here are some of the celebrity wedding looks to take inspiration from.
Actress-turned-Duchess-of-Sussex Meghan Markle and makeup artist friend Daniel Martin agreed on a minimal look for her wedding with Prince Harry. She donned the right thickness of the lashes, a few strokes of blush to almost none, and a subtle amount of pink colour on her lips.
Actress Priyanka Chopra was a fresh, blushing bride when she tied the knot with musician Nick Jonas in their Western wedding. Except for the fuschia lip colour, her makeup was overall natural, which was complemented well by her relaxed hairstyle. One of our favourite celebrity wedding looks to date, for sure.
Song Hye Kyo
Korean actress Song Hye Kyo has effortless beauty that just shines through, so the decision to keep her wedding makeup to a minimum was the right choice. Hues of coral subtly touched her eye creases and cheeks while her hair was simply tied up in a bun, achieving a clean and very elegant over-all look.
Filipino actress Solenn Heussaff can sport a total glamourous look if she wants to, but she went the opposite direction during her wedding. Aside from a bit of smokiness on her eyelids, Solenn kept everything looking neutral and natural.
Taiwanese-Hong Kong actress Shu Qi wore eyes that were slightly smokey, cheeks that had a soft touch of blush and lips that had a hint of shimmer during her wedding with actor-director Stephen Fung. Of all the celebrity wedding looks we’ve featured, it was the epitome of natural as it was paired with her practical but still marvellous H&M bridal gown.
