7 Wedding Makeup Trends to Rock in 2023

 Are you planning to tie the knot in 2023? If so, you might be wondering what are the hottest wedding makeup trends for the upcoming year. Whether you want to go for a natural, glamorous, or edgy look, there is something for every bride in this list of 7 wedding makeup trends that will deliver!

1. Brides with Pearls, Crystals and Gemstones

Fantasy makeup is all the rage, and it’s thanks to the catwalks that accessories like pearls, crystals or gemstones have appeared on wedding makeup looks¹. These delicate details add a touch of sparkle and elegance to your eyes, lips, or cheeks. You can choose to go subtle with a few gems on your inner corners or lash line, or go bold with a full-on rhinestone lid². The key is to balance the rest of your makeup with soft colors and a flawless base.

2. Colored Eyeliner

If you want to add some color and fun to your wedding makeup, why not try a colored eyeliner? This trend is perfect for brides who want to make their eyes pop and express their personality. You can choose from a variety of shades, from pastels to neons, and apply them on your upper or lower lash line, or even on your waterline. You can also experiment with different shapes and styles, such as winged, graphic, or smudged¹. Just make sure to use a waterproof formula that will last all day.

3. Glass Skin Effect

Wedding makeup trends for 2023 have moved towards natural looks, especially with respect to the coverage of the skin, with viral trends like dolphin skin (luminous and with a glowy finish) or glass skin (crystal skin), which is why many makeup artists are betting on this for upcoming wedding looks⁴. Glass skin is a Korean beauty trend that involves achieving a smooth, poreless, and translucent complexion that reflects light like glass. To get this effect, you need to prep your skin with hydrating and brightening products, such as serums, moisturizers, and masks. Then, apply a light-coverage foundation or tinted moisturizer that matches your skin tone and blend it well. Finish with a subtle highlighter on the high points of your face and a setting spray to lock in the moisture¹.

4. Tint Trend for Brides

Another way to achieve a natural and fresh look is to use tints on your lips and cheeks. Tints are liquid or gel products that stain your skin with a sheer wash of color that lasts for hours. They are ideal for brides who want to avoid touch-ups and look like they are blushing from within. You can choose from different shades of pink, peach, coral, or berry, depending on your skin tone and preference. The trick is to apply them quickly and blend them well with your fingers or a sponge before they dry¹.

5. Bright, Holographic and Metallic Eye Shadows

If you are feeling adventurous and want to make a statement with your wedding makeup, you can opt for bright, holographic or metallic eye shadows. These eye-catching shades will add some drama and dimension to your eyes and make them stand out in photos. You can choose from colors like purple, blue, green, gold, silver, or even rainbow hues. You can also mix and match them with different textures and finishes, such as matte, shimmer, glitter, or foil¹. The key is to blend them well and use a primer or concealer to make them last longer.

6. Cherry, Brown and Rose Lips

When it comes to lip colors for brides in 2023, there are three main trends: cherry reds, brown nudes, and rose pinks⁴. Cherry reds are classic and timeless shades that suit any skin tone and add a pop of color to your look. Brown nudes are modern and chic shades that complement any eye makeup and give you a sophisticated vibe. Rose pinks are romantic and feminine shades that flatter any complexion and give you a soft glow. You can choose from different formulas and finishes, such as matte, glossy, creamy, or sheer³.

7. Eyelashes, Always Centre Stage

No matter what wedding makeup trend you choose for 2023, one thing is certain: eyelashes will always be centre stage¹. Long, voluminous lashes will enhance your eyes and make them look bigger and more expressive. You can achieve this effect by using mascara, false lashes, or lash extensions. Mascara is the easiest and most affordable option, but you need to use a waterproof and smudge-proof formula that will last all day. False lashes are more dramatic and customizable, but you need to apply them carefully and use a strong glue that will hold them in place. Lash extensions are the most expensive and long-lasting option, but you need to get them done by a professional and take care of them properly.

As you can see, there are plenty of wedding makeup trends to choose from in 2023. Whether you want to go for a natural, glamorous, or edgy look, there is something for every bride in this list. The most important thing is to choose a trend that suits your style, personality, and wedding theme. And of course, don't forget to have fun and enjoy your special day!
