Jennifer Lopez’s Smoldering Smoky Eye
The world practically stopped when Bennifer 2.0 finally tied the knot, and it’s not hard to see why. Yes, J.Lo married Ben Affleck, which is all fine and dandy, but her wedding-day glam? Iconic.
According to celebrity makeup artist Nydia Figueroa, J.Lo’s bridal glam consisted of a smoldering brown smoky eye that is opaque but blended. “A great way to re-create this look is by using an eye shadow stick over and under the lids and blending it out with a fluffy brush,” she says. “[Lopez] also has black in her waterline to add some drama to this bridal look.” She specifically suggests Limelife By Alcone Enduring Eyeliner for her brides.
Kourtney Kardashian’s Gothic Glam
Kourtney Kardashian‘s Italian wedding celebration was the epitome of gothic glam, though her actual bridal makeup wasn’t quite so over-the-top.
“Kourtney’s makeup was classic and not overdone, which I loved,” Alexa Persico, makeup artist and and founder of Alexa Persico Cosmetics, tells Glamour. “To re-create this look, you want to lightly smoke out the eyes, using a shade of mocha and light beige shimmer, then add a touch of liquid liner for this classic look.” She also notes that a great way to get these tones is by using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam palette.
Paris Hilton’s Princess Vibe
Paris Hilton practically transformed into a Disney princess for her wedding day. And celebrity hairstylist Eduardo Ponce, who styled her bridal hair, said that the glam team’s overall inspiration for the look was “timeless.” “We wanted Paris to look fresh and chic,” he tells. “The dress is such a masterpiece we didn’t want to over do the glam.” To copy this look, focus on matte neutrals on the eyes and a glossy lip.
Gabrielle Union’s Luminous Glow
Gabrielle Union looked like a glowing goddess on her wedding day. To achieve the dewy-glow aesthetic, Persico suggests focusing on priming the skin with a dewy base, then setting the look with an illuminating spray for that extra sheen. “One of my favorite products to prep and set the face for a dewy look is the Alexa Persico Cosmetics Brighten Me Baby Setting Mist,” she says. “This gorgeous hydrating formula contains light-reflecting properties infused with rosewater, hyaluronic acid, and the healing nutrient niacinamide, that will leave the skin healthy and glowing.”
Sophia Bush’s Flawless Skin
Sophia Bush looked gorgeous as a bride, as expected. Makeup artist Afton Williams created Bush’s ceremonial glam with Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation, It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer, Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Powder Bronzer, and Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand in Spotlight. She then used Sigma Blushes in Pet Name & Pinkin’ for the cheeks, and amped up the highlighter with Super Glow from Charlotte Tilbury’s Nudegasm Face Palette.
Hailey Bieber’s Fresh Elegance
According to celebrity makeup artist Denika Bedrossian, she wanted to keep Hailey Bieber’s makeup fresh and elegant for her big day. “We chose warm tones to softly smoke the lash line of her eyes and a warm peach tone for the base of her blush,” she tells. “Hailey has such beautiful skin, so I didn’t need to do much but enhance her glow. We went with a warm neutral lip and a soft gloss to polish it off.”
Danielle Brooks’s Dewy Glow
To achieve Danielle Brooks’s gorgeous dewy glow, you’ll want to focus on skin prep. “To give the skin an amazing and smooth look, I love to use face oils to start. My favorite one for bridal makeup is the B3 Brush Beauty Balm Astraea Face Oil,” Figueroa tells , adding that you’ll want to opt for a lightweight foundation, as well. “A tinted moisturizer applied with the fingers or even a fluffy duo fibre brush will work great,” she says. “The Pür cosmetics 4-in-1 Tinted Moisturizer is great to plump, color-correct, and even out the skin without looking heavy.”
Kate Middleton’s Rosy Cheeks
According to celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg, the focal point of Kate Middleton’s bridal glam is the natural glow of her skin. “To re-create this, use cream products: Jamie Makeup Blighlighter in the Pink One and Clarins Natural Lip Perfector in Rose Shimmer,” she says.
Priyanka Chopra’s Pink Pout
Priyanka Chopra sported a perfect pink lip for her wedding to Nick Jonas, the exact shade of which was Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Créme in Boy Gorgeous. Unfortunately, this product has been discontinued, but Glossier’s Generation G in Crush and Maybelline‘s Super Stay Vinyl Ink Liquid Lipstick in Unrivaled are remarkably similar.
Meghan Markle’s Fresh-Faced Radiance
Meghan Markle’s look can be achieved with soft highlighter. “The Fenty Beauty Liquid Killawatt Fluid Freestyle Highlighter is beautiful for a soft or intense highlighted look,” Figueroa tells . “The Glossier Cloud paint is a gel blush and can be dabbed on the cheekbones for a flushed-from-within glow.”
Audrey Hepburn’s Classic Aesthetic
No list of bridal beauty looks would be complete without Audrey Hepburn’s classic wedding-day glam. Pay homage to the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star with a bold rep lip, such as Maybelline’s Sensational Lipstick in Red for Me.
Jasmine Tookes’s Vibrant Glam
Jasmine Tookes’s bridal glam was truly a work of art. Makeup artist Leah Darcy created the look, and shared a product breakdown on Instagram. The face-makeup portion includes: Hourglass Cosmetics Vanish Liquid Foundation, Vanish Foundation Stick, and Veil Translucent Powder, Fenty Beauty Pro Filtr Powder Foundation and Sun Stalk’r Instant Warmth Bronzer Beauty Bronzer in Mocha Mami, and Pat McGrath’s Divine Blush in Paradise Venus.
Ariana Grande’s Cat Eye
To cop Ariana Grande‘s classic winged liner look, Persico suggests using a long-lasting and matte liquid eyeliner. “You need it to create that elongated sharp wing, which is the star of the look,” she says. “Start by connecting your wing to your lash line in short, steady strokes. The firmer you press, the thicker the line will be. Keep in mind that the thickest point should be the corners of your eyes.”
Solange Knowles’s Bold Red Lip
Solange Knowles had some of the coolest bridal glam around, combining a minimalist no-makeup makeup look with a pop of matte red lip. Get the look with MAC Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Chili.
Ivy Getty’s Glimmering Gloss
Ivy Getty wore a dramatic smoky eye, peach blush, and shimmering pink lip gloss to nail this breathtaking look. To create a similar glossy finish, try Fenty Beauty’s Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer.
