The Best Wedding Makeup For Brunettes

Play up your natural features to look and feel your best on your wedding day.
by Andrea Fowler

Wedding makeup can be tricky—after so many years of being your own makeup artist, you know what you like and what works best. But for your wedding day you might want to try on a new look that complements your bridal style, and if that's the case, where do you even start? 

There are a few ways you can jump start a bridal beauty routine, but one of the best ways to figure out what you like (and what you don't like) for your day-of look is to gather inspiration to show your beauty pro. For brunette brides, start your search by identifying your skin tone and hair color shade and ask for their recommendations too. They're a pro for a reason! Here are 15 of our favorite bridal makeup looks for brunettes to get you inspired.
