Whether it’s a simple signing at city hall, in a sprawling field with flowers in your hair, or at a big banquet hall with a cathedral veil and a pipe organ, chances are if you want to get married at some point, you’ve thought about what your dream day would look like. Because even if you’re nowhere close to legally binding yourself to someone else, there’s no harm in curating the perfect wedding Pinterest board filled with crafty centerpieces you’ll probably never actually glue together.

And since Pinterest is the place where fantasy lives of all kinds are built, it’s the place we go to find out what’s trending in search for brides-in-planning, too. Beauty-wise, the platform’s data, and analytics show us that the products and photos people are pinning actually translate to six stunning makeup trends that can inspire any bride, regardless of the locale or aesthetic. Check them out, and how to make them fit your own personal style, ahead.

If there’s any day you don’t want to worry about smudged lipstick, it’s your wedding day. Ditch the touch-ups and stick to a long-lasting, nude gloss that will stay shiny even after several rounds of Champagne toasts.

You want radiant skin on your wedding day, the kind that means your guests won’t even be exaggerating when they inevitably tell you you’re “absolutely glowing.” Good skin-care preparation will definitely help on that from, but for a final-touch dewy finish, you’ll want a good highlighter.

No surprise here, brides want lashes, lashes, and more lashes. If you’d rather not opt for extensions or falsies, a pro-approved mascara will get the job done.
