From editing down guest lists to dealing with postponements and cancellations, COVID-19 has made wedding planning pretty difficult. If you’re a bride-to-be, kudos to you for sticking it out and finding unique — and safe! — ways to celebrate your love. Even if the day will look a little different than you thought it would, we’re here to make sure that there’s no change of plans when it comes to your wedding beauty look. Whether you’re a DIY-er through and through or are simply trying to limit your exposure to others, we’ve rounded up the best bridal looks on Instagram that you can recreate on yourself for the big day. 

Blushing Bride

Achieve the ultimate blushing bride status by recreating this look by @allbridesnewyork. Using Maybelline New York Cheek Heat, gently dab the pigment along your cheeks with either a brush or your fingertips for a rosy glow.

Romantic in Red 

Just because you’re wearing all white doesn’t mean you have to shy away from color. Amp up your look with a bold red lip, like the one seen here by @laureneddymakeupartist. We recommend using the NYX Professional Makeup Lip Lingerie XXL Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade Stamina for a long-lasting swipe of color that accentuates your natural lip shape and makes ‘em look even fuller. 

I Dew

We’re obsessed with @michelletrifenamua’s dewy-looking skin. If you are too, turn to the iconic Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation for medium coverage and a radiant glow. For an extra hint of shimmer, add the Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer to the high points of your face and thank us later.

Glossy Glam

If you’re all about the lips, this simple yet sophisticated look by @beautyonlocationnj is exactly the inspo you need. The NYX Professional Makeup This Is Milky Gloss should be your go-to for a product that lasts through hours of smiling and smooching.

Marry Me in Monochrome

Do you have a color that looks so good on you that you receive compliments every time you wear it? If so, monochrome makeup should be on your radar. In this look by @ivssglam, the warm hue of the eyeshadow and the matching dark cherry lip (try the L’Oréal Paris Les Nus by Color Riche Lipstick in Nu Artistique) work in harmony for a result that is all things trendy and romantic.
