15 Celeb #StyleCrushes to Channel for Perfect Bridal Beauty

Between the dress, the locale, the menu and the guest list, wedding planning can be exhausting. Fast forward to one month before and you haven’t even thought about the rest of your ensemble. You realize everyone’s going to be staring at your deliriously happy, (probably) tear-stained face, so you’ll probs want to have some makeup on (yes, even you boho babe ;). If you have no idea where to start, read on to find your preferred wedding style (rustic + woodsy FTW!), or your celeb style crush (Reese Witherspoon obvs), and voilà! — beauty tips and tutorials for your makeup artist or for your stellar DIY self.

 

FOR THE ROMANTIC BRIDE

Like Hilary Duff, you see yourself on your wedding day in a cloud of tulle and a sweetheart neckline. Channel her romantic look with a soft smokey eye of blended pinks and browns and an almost-nude pink lip. You’re swooning just thinking about it, aren’t you? (via Cupcakes and Cashmere)

 

FOR THE SUN-KISSED BRIDE

You prefer to spend your time lounging on the beach and working on your tan — your goal is to always look as bronzed as Minka Kelly. Your preferred vacay destinations must be in close proximity to the equator. Play up any glow or the last vestiges of your summer tan with a bronzed, golden look for your big day. (via Brit + Co)

 

FOR THE COUNTRY BRIDE

Miranda Lambert is your soul sister, and you’re totally drooling over the style of her nuptials to fellow country singer Blake Shelton. Just because you’re having a rustic wedding, doesn’t mean you can’t add a dash of sass with pumped up eyelashes and a natural lip. (via Rev Beauty)

 

FOR THE ELEGANT BRIDE

Forget the trends, you want something fairytale timeless ala Jessica Biel’s wedding to Justin Timberlake in 2012. This light and simple look will make your eyes pop and add a fresh pink glow to your face — chic bridal beauty at its best. (via B.Loved)

 

FOR THE RETRO BRIDE

Your beauty inspirations hail out of the last century, including stars like Audrey, Marilyn and Jackie — and the current celebs who channel them. Mad Men star Jessica Paré is the perfect modern muse, with bold brows, a cat eye and a strong red lip. (via Tiny Touchups)

 

FOR THE VIXEN BRIDE

You don’t leave the house without black liner, a bold brow and BIG lashes, just like your style icon Kim Kardashian. It’s your signature look and you stick to it, even on your wedding day. So after you’ve flawlessly contoured your face, it’s back to not-quite-basics with this foxy makeup look. (via Storyboard Wedding)

 

FOR THE BOHO BRIDE

From maxis to bell bottoms, you’re all about that vintage vibe. Basically you should have been a flower child. You’re using your big day to make a statement about your love for nature and all things ethereal. Clearly Nicole Richie is your spirit animal. We love the earthy vibe the smudged undereye shadow gives her, and we know you will too. (via Elle Leary Artistry)

 

FOR THE DARING BRIDE

The rest of us were content to leave blue eyeshadow in the ’80s but not you, and not Ginnifer Goodwin. You’re ready to throw traditional advice about avoiding bold color in your bridal beauty look out the window. After all, what better way to make sure you don’t forget your something blue? (via Refinery29)

 

FOR THE OUTDOORSY BRIDE

Your reception is taking place: A) on the water B) in the mountains or C) in the woods. And so you love Leona Lewis’s subtle incorporation of greenery into your makeup (see, it alll ties in ;). You’re def keeping your venue in mind when you decorate, so why not keep it in mind with your makeup, too? (via Brit + Co)

 

FOR THE MINIMALIST BRIDE

Forget spending hours in the makeup chair, you want to look effortlessly chic and dewy on your big day — basically the way Reese Witherspoon looks all the time. Make your guests think you’re lit up with happiness, not highlighting products ;) (via Brit + Co)

 

FOR THE GLAMOROUS BRIDE

Whether playing Olivia Pope or strutting up on the red carpet, Kerry Washinton‘s wardrobe and makeup always live up to her glamorous self. If you think stilettos are perfect casual lunch footwear, demure wedding makeup just isn’t going to work for you. Go for gold (or silver) with a metallic eye (via Keiko Lynn)

 

FOR THE INDIE BRIDE

Crazy planning timeline or not, your wedding day is nothing to worry about. Like Anne Hathaway, your dress is going to steal the show (a to-die-for non-traditional number) so why stress about your makeup? Go for something soft and pretty and everything else will fall into place. (via Ruffled)

 

FOR THE ROCK ‘N ROLL BRIDE

You spend your days rocking neon hair and leather, and your evenings crooning at the local amateur night. Obvi a plain white dress and subtle makeup aren’t working for you. Let Gwen Stefani‘s pink punk locks of yesteryear inspire your entire bridal look with the lips to match. (via Rock N Roll Bride)

 

FOR THE BUDGET BRIDE

You’re already dropping big bucks on your big day, and you do your makeup successfully every other day of your life. You got this, especially since you can create Carrie Underwood-level bridal beauty using all drugstore products. More money for the dress and the honeymoon! (via Claire Ashley)

 

FOR THE CLASSIC BRIDE

You’re all about channeling the traditional blushing bride look on your big day. Classic beauties like Kate Middleton are your dream inspo. You may not have designed your dress with Alexander McQueen, but you can still be royally gorgeous! (via Brit + Co)

 

BONUS! FOR THE ZOMBIE BRIDE

Whether you’re actually hosting a zombie apocalypse-themed wedding (we’d be down), or you’re justing prepping for Halloween early, we know just how to get you undead-glam. Sally Skellington will be so jealous. (via I Spy DIY)
