8 Easy-To-Copy Makeup Looks That’ll Please Everyone In The Bridal Party

So, you’re going to be a bridesmaid. Whether it’s your first time walking down an aisle or you’ve lost track of how many bachelorette parties you’ve organized, the universal plight is the same: How do you find a wedding-day look you want to wear that fits into the exact dimensions of the bride-to-be’s Pinterest board?

While we can’t help in choosing the mandated bridal-party dress — color, style, or cost — we can help in finding the perfect bridesmaid beauty look, something that will make you feel like the best version of yourself as you glide down someone else’s rose petal-dusted aisle. Ahead, find eight stunning (and super-simple) makeup looks that fit any wedding aesthetic. These are sure to please you, everyone else in the party, and — most importantly — the bride.

Even if you’re not dressed to the nines — in bright-pink feathers and Tiffany jewels — you can match Kendall Jenner ‘s dreamy makeup look for your friend’s summer wedding. All you need is a liquid liner, a neutral shadow, a pink lip gloss, plus a cool, messy updo.

If your dress is any shade close to lavender, consider a blurred eggplant shadow à la Gemma Chan.

You’re not doing any kissing at the altar, so why not stand up there with a glossy red lip?

And if cherry-red lipstick isn’t your style, a deep-rose balm or stain (like Natalia Vodianova’s) feels just as sexy, without making a huge statement.

A thick wing of black eyeliner feels edgy, but still keeps with the romantic wedding vibes when paired with a nude lip and a hair bow.

When the bride is going fresh-faced on her wedding day, your look can also be au naturale — just make sure to follow a strict pre-wedding skin-care regimen.

For a bridesmaid look that will last through several champagne toasts and multiple trips to the dessert table, take a note from Yara Shahidi. Makeup artist Emily Cheng used Bobbi Brown’s Luxe Matte lipstick in Burnt Cherry to get this rose-mauve look.

If your hair is pulled back into a tight updo, the focus is all on your makeup. Try going for something soft, like a peach lipstick and a bronze eyeshadow, as seen on the stunning Kate Bosworth.
