Just like fashion and decor, bridal beauty changes with the start of each season. If you are getting married in fall, you have much to be excited about when it comes to makeup! In need of inspiration, but don’t know where to begin? Start by checking out what’s happening on the runway and red carpet. There are some stunning makeup looks being showcased right now. But the real question is “How do they translate to the wedding aisle?”

Knowing that you’re busy enough already, we went ahead and rounded up the best fall wedding makeup ideas for 2018. From dramatic eyes to a natural rosy glow, we’re sure you’ll find something that will have you looking and feeling your best on the big day.

Gold Eyeshadow

Gold eyeshadow is a trend that is fast on its way to becoming a classic. A dusting of gold around the upper and lower lids creates a luminous effect that is universally flattering and works to brighten eyes. Finish the look with black eyeliner (we love the sharp cat eye featured here!) and lash lengthening mascara.

Get The Look: The Gold Eyeshadow Palette by Natasha Denona has gold in a variety of shades and textures.

Pretty in Pink

Pink is a color that just naturally comes to us. Think about how flushed your cheeks get on a crisp autumn day! We’ve been obsessed with monochromatic pink makeup and love that it is being embraced by wedding beauty experts. It’s soft, romantic and works with every skin tone. With countless options in the spectrum ranging from soft pink to rose to punch, the key is finding the right shade for you and running with it.

Get The Look: Achieve that wedding day glow with Urban Decay’s Rose Gold Shimmer.

Smoky Eye 

We definitely notice that our fall and winter brides want to incorporate more dramatic elements into their wedding decor. For beauty, this means a bold return of the smoky eye. A subtle lip and cheeks keep focus on high impact eyes. For a toned down alternative, consider taupe, one of this season’s ‘it’ colors.

Get The Look: Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide On Pencil Set offers a trio of colors (blackest black, deep brown matte, and dark eggplant shimmer) so you can play around!

Classic Red Lip 

A classic red lip never goes out of style. From crimson to ruby to brick in finishes of satin, matte, and glossy, the options are endless so take your time finding the right shade that works with your complexion. For a look of timeless glamour, pair a rich rouge lip with shimmering champagne eyeshadow, a crisp sweep of eyeliner, and mascara.

Berry Shades 

Berry colored makeup takes a beautifully dark turn once the temps cool off. Mixing romance and drama, berry is perfect for fall brides who want to make an intoxicating beauty statement. And with shades ranging from pink to mauve to wine, it suits all complexions. For an ultra pretty wedding day look, pair a plum lip with barely there eyeshadow and lush lashes.
