Donning some light pink lipstick is a brave wedding makeup style, but it works beautifully. Especially when combined with subtle highlighting and contour on the cheeks, and simple metallic eyeshadow.

Pink & Red Colour Combo

Gradient Eyeshadow

Jazz up your wedding day look with some awesome gradient-style eyeshadow. Start with black at the corners, then gradually get lighter and lighter until you have a pale gold close to your nose. Accentuate your cheekbones and truly bring out your eyeshadow with matching highlighter and contour.

Glowing Cheeks & Outdoor Eyes

If you've got a very glamorous or complex dress, then this is a great look to complement it. You use bold colours in both your lipstick and eye makeup, along with a face that glows and contours in all the right places. It's the type of look you expect to see supermodels in on the red carpet.

Monochrome Pink

By using different shades of pink, you can create a monochrome wedding look that will kill it up at the altar. The subtleness of pink lipstick combines with eyeshadow and highlighter makes for a very natural and beautiful style.
