3 flawless makeup color palettes for your wedding

It wasn’t until I got married and a professional makeup artist worked her magic on me that I became a ‘makeup girl.’ I’m a total convert now and truly believe in the power of makeup to enhance your natural beauty and make you feel your most glamorous.

The wonderful ladies at Makeup For Your Day held a little contest this month: choose three inspiration boards (from here) and create looks to coordinate with them. Kerri Kunsman, one of the artists at Makeup For Your Day, won and it’s easy to see why! She’s here to present her three looks along with the inspiration boards that inspired them:

1. Peach & Gold

From Kerri - “I was inspired by the Peach & Gold inspiration board because it is the perfect balance between sweet southern peach and glamorous gold.

For a charming and elegant daytime wedding look, peach tones pop on the lip and cheek while an apricot and gold shimmer on the eye with a natural brown liner will make your eye color stand out. Paired with a low, tousled, and whimsical bun, this classic bridal look is stunning!”

“This Great Gatsby wedding inspiration board is a modern take on a timeless classic. For this stunning look I’ve chosen a neutral smokey eye with deep browns and golds along with a dramatic black liner. The matte burgundy lip coincides with the trend this year, making your teeth appear whiter and setting the scene for a lavish soiree.

Bold brows also complement this season’s trends and modernize the vintage 1920s thin brows. Nude blush placed on the hollow of the cheek and pink blush on the apples create a slimming contour effect. Coupled with a beautiful polished side swept finger wave, this look is sure to get the Leonardo DiCaprio in your life to say I do!”

3. Black & Gold

“I was inspired by the black and gold wedding inspiration board because of the classic and luxurious elements that are perfect for an elegant evening wedding. For this look I’ve paired a light smokey eye with a highlight of gold in the inner corner to draw attention to the eyes and open them up, with a pink cheek and a glossy pink lip. The pink used has violet undertones to compliment the golden surroundings and add a splash of color.

I also used a black gel liner to create a winged effect on the eye, drawing the shape upward and adding a little bit of drama to complete the evening look. Combined with a low, polished chignon with volume in the crown, you will be sure to win your groom!”

  1. Love these! The makeup is perfectly tailored to each board.

  2. These ladies obviously know their stuff! So many great makeup recommendations, I’ll be bookmarking this one!

  3. Oh, I love the peachy one! I wish I knew more about makeup application. I still haven’t the faintest clue how to use primer, foundation, and all that scary stuff. I just stick to lipsticks, luminizing moisturizers, eyeshadows, and mascara, which I feel like I can’t botch too horrifically. I would love to have the talent of expertly applying makeup!

  4. Such a creative post!

  5. Ohh, I love this! What a great idea to choose makeup based on an inspiration board. I would have never thought of that, but it makes so much sense! How fantastic :-)
