7 Gorgeous Fall Wedding Makeup Ideas That Are Anything But Boring

May and June may be popular months for tying the knot, but the fall season is undoubtedly one of the best times to have a wedding. The brisk weather means you don't have to worry about your makeup melting or hair frizzing and, depending on where you live, you could have the dreamiest backdrop of orange and red leaves. Plus, fall bridal beauty trends are so darn beautiful.

With fresh trends on the horizon, and more room to play with darker colors, brides tend to choose from a larger pool of ideas for their makeup. Finding that inspiration can be difficult — especially when you have an entire wedding to finish planning while trying to enjoy the last days of the summer — so we're here to help.


We've rounded up our favorite fall bridal looks from Instagram, both new trends and classic looks, ahead.

Rich, Moody Liner

If you want to add a pop of color, without getting too bold, opt for deep purple, navy, or forest green. It's fun, yet subtle, so it won't steal the thunder from your overall bridal look. You can sport it as a subtle swoop...

The Winged-Out, Smoky Eye

Or smoke it out. After all, it's the perfect time to go all out with deep colors that feel softer than black and more fun than brown.

Berry Lips

There's no better time to go for a rich berry lip than fall. Once you find your perfect shade, you'll probably want to wear it well past your wedding day.

Bronzy Glow

Your summer glow might be faded by the time your fall wedding comes around, but no worries — that's where makeup can work its magic. Factor in bronzer and an all-over golden highlight to instantly recreate your sun-kissed glow.

Mono Nude

Sure, nudes work for every season, but we recommend you go a little darker with neutral tones in the fall to create a warmer finish. If you're really into the color, you can make the look monochromatic like seen here.

Liquid Liner + Red Lips

This combo is certainly timeless and can work with almost all dress styles. Plus, with lower temperatures, you don't have to worry about your black liner melting off before the reception even starts.

Orange Makeup

Orange makeup doesn't have to look pumpkin-y (even if it's fall), just as Margot Robbie. With a well-blended, soft shade, you can get score this trendy look.
