It's wedding season!

Wedding season: makeup & beauty tips for guests

If you've been invited to a wedding, here are the three most important beauty questions you need to be asking yourself before the big day!


What are you going to wear? It's a simple question, but the answer depends on what kind of wedding you're attending. The clue, if you can't ask outright, will usually be in the invitation:

Chic and sophisticated? Obviously, avoid all-white (you're not the bride) and all-black (this isn't a funeral, or Paris) ensembles. That said, there's nothing wrong with an on-trend monochrome outfit. Horizontal stripes are the most flattering, but if they're too thin you'll look like you're wearing a hologram in the photographs.

Bohemian or beachy? A maxi-dress is always a good idea if the wedding is going to take place outside. Team it with a pair of wedges and a firmly pinned-on hat and you're good to go.

Trendy? If you're worried about not looking 'cool' enough, stick to a simple dress in one color, then show your personality through the accessories. Try a chunky graphic cuff and a fun clutch bag.


Once you've decided on your outfit, makeup is the next most important aspect of your look. Our top two are the subtle smoky eye and pop of color:

Subtle smoky eye. Using a grey or brown-toned eyeshadow, give yourself a light smoky eye and a couple of coats of mascara. For your lips, keep them neutral in a nude or natural hue.

Pop of color. Keeping your eyes very natural-looking (mascara and a thin line of kohl under the eye) means you can afford to choose a really bold color for your lips! Bear your outfit in mind when picking your shade.

Top tip: don't forget the waterproof mascara!


When it comes to hairstyle, a lot of it depends on whether you're wearing a hat/head-piece or not. Our favorite wedding guest hairstyles that we've seen so far this season have included pretty half-up hairstyles and, of course, braids.

Now all that's left is for you to have a wonderful day with friends and/or family!
