Proof That Bare-Faced Brides Rule

If you don't wear much makeup regularly, the idea of having a fully-airbrushed face on your wedding day can be daunting. But, there's no rule that says you have to wear dramatic makeup for your wedding. (And, if a makeup artist tells you that you must wear dramatic makeup so you look good in pictures, consider that news anchors and actors manage to look good on camera without the help of fake eyelashes.) If a natural makeup look is your style, let these almost-bare-faced brides inspire you.
Launched in 2012, Lover.ly aims to make the dog-eared folder of magazine clippings a thing of the past for brides-to-be. The digital wedding channel, which makes the planning process a more simpler one, is bringing everything from charming real weddings to expert advice on all things bridal right to R29.
