Summer Brides Wedding Makeup Inspiration

We’re in the midst of the upcoming summer wedding season and brides everywhere are looking to nail their most perfect look for their big days – and it’s down to me to make sure that you make the right choices to create a beautifully modern look.

Radiate natural beauty

Light pinks, barely-there nudes, coppers and rosy cheeks create a beautifully, uncomplicated summer look, with boho-braids as a perfect match. A dash of highlighter in the inner eye add a real pop while keeping the whole look effortless. I am obsessed with the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita palette at the moment!


Makeup doesn’t need to just be for the face! With some cleverly applied bronzer to shoulders, collarbones and décolletage, you can achieve an incredible summer radiant glow. I use NYX Matte Body Bronzer for a flattering, natural finish.


Summer brides need a lovely, natural glow but some of my brides are concerned they will need a heavy coverage to achieve this. This is definitely not the case! A buildable, tinted moisturiser offers a light alternative, such as Charlotte Tilbury’s Healthy Glow, which is called “summer in a bottle”. Adding a fantastic highlighter such as ICONIC London Illuminator pulls it all together.

Bright lip

If you’d prefer to keep your look completely natural, that is perfectly fine. However, you can add a unique pop of colour. This look really needs the expertise of an MUA – I will be sure you help you select a shade that flatters your skin. I love Lady Danger from MAC.

Don’t forget to check out my post on keeping your makeup fresh on your wedding day! You can team this beautiful summer makeup with boho waves and a bridal hair accessory to really set off the look.
