The cheeks can be finely defined with a tan or rose-colored blush and the lips can be kept nude or enriched using a vivid red or orange lipstick shade.

Natural makeup

Use a light skin foundation, natural looking blush, nude lipstick or lip-gloss and a simple coat of mascara.

Vintage style makeup

Vintage Style MakeupThis elegant style complements the current summer bridal trends perfectly. The simplicity and grace of this makeup style is remarkable and suits every bride perfectly. Enhance your eyes using a neutral eye shadow and define your eyes using eyeliner. Besides, smokey eyes can never go out of style.
