Wedding makeup trends 2024

Looking to jump on the 2024 wedding makeup trends you should know about? Whether you’re a bride-to-be, a bridesmaid, the bride’s mother, or a guest, there are plenty of new makeup trends for all the ladies! 

Think about monochromatic accents with ombre pouts and balletcore beauty, which has been looking to be the year’s top trend since we first saw it on Hailey Bieber. In short, 2024 will focus on a more minimalistic makeup look that focuses on pre-wedding beauty and flawless skin while adding a unique twist to take your makeup to the next level. 

Let’s look at the beauty and makeup trends that will set the wedding makeup space by storm in 2024 so you can hire a makeup artist to recreate these fantastic looks. Keep scrolling and find the gorgeous looks for all the newlyweds coming down the aisle this year.

The Natural Glow Makeup 

The one makeup that isn’t going anywhere in 2024 is the glowy makeup. We think brides will want to see themselves in the mirror and the wedding photos and be happy that they have a more natural glow instead of an overdone look. Celebs like Sofie Richie and Barbara Sprouse have recently nailed the look, and we know many brides-to-be will be channeling the same natural look. 

The natural glow look fits perfectly for brides getting married in the summer or on destination islands like Bali. Brides can easily achieve this makeup with proper screen prep and the right foundation. The bride-to-be can easily achieve this “less is more” makeup approach with a simple skin prep the night before your wedding day. Patricia Lejeune, owner of a Makeup Artistry in Florida, says that all it takes to achieve this look is a good exfoliating and moisturizing routine.

Pops of Red

If you’ve been strolling on TikTok recently, you may have heard of the Red Nail Theory that has recently been trending, and for a good reason. Makeup and bridal experts say that the color red won’t go anywhere for all the 2024 brides; from the tip of their shoes to the shades on their cheeks, we think we’ll see more red woven into every bride’s beauty checklists. If you’re worried about red being too bold, you can incorporate it into your bridal look by softening or blurring it to create the perfect color flush. 

Red is a timeless hue that symbolizes love, sensuality, and passion, so it’s for any bride looking to lean into a bold bridal look. Another way of embracing the reds on your wedding day is by adding them to your nails! Even though the French Manicure is pretty, brides who are more true to themselves will lean into daring colors such as red even more. This includes celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian, who embraced the red French tip look for her wedding. 

Balletcore Beauty 

This term might be new to you, but ballet core beauty is shaping up to be the hottest trend for bridal makeup in 2024. It’s the perfect “soft girl” look that’s been exploding all over social media on stars like Sofia Richie and Hailey Bieber. 

Simply place the blush on the apples of your cheeks along with the bridge of the nose, giving brides a youthful look. Use creams instead of powder as we love a good cream blush, highlighter, and bronzer for a more natural look that blends perfectly with the skin. 

This is a whimsical trend that’s perfect for brides looking to pull off the feminine prima ballerina vibes, radiating elegance and charm when walking down the aisle. Add peach or rosy blush colors with cool-toned shadows and glossy pink lips to achieve this effortlessly beautiful style. Remember to complete the look with a sleek ballerina bun. 

Ombre Lips 

We can expect to see a lot of ombre pouts as gleaming, two-toned lip colors in the bridal beauty spotlight in 2024. Think of a modernized 90’s aesthetic with a slight gradient finish. Top celebs like Rihanna Beyonce, Megan Thee Stallion, and Priyanka Chopra have embraced this bold style, combining a soft shade of neutral lipstick color at the lip’s center and gradually fading into more vibrant colors along the edges. 

The ombre lips are perfect if you want a supermodel-worthy look on your special day. It’s a wedding makeup trend that emerges from a darker lip color while blending with a more neutral color near the lip’s center. Remember to finish the look with a bit of gloss! 

Monochromatic Magic

Bold and vibrant colors need to make way for monochromatic looks, as they are here to steal the spotlight in 2024. Kendall Jenner and Emma Watson have been spotted with the makeup trend, radiating a warm, earthy tone that seamlessly blends across the eyes, cheeks, and lips. On the other hand, Sabrina Carpenter and Hailey Bieber usually pull off the Strawberry Girl Summer makeup. The result is an effortlessly gorgeous appearance that elevates your natural beauty. 

The bride-to-be looking for simplicity and timeless elegance will love this trend that allows you to embrace your unique features on your wedding day. Try using a bronzer on your eyes and skin to achieve this look, and top it off with a smudged-in brown liner with nude brown lip liner and gloss. 

Final Thoughts 

The year 2024 is ushering in a fresh wave of wedding makeup trends that promise to redefine bridal beauty with a focus on simplicity, elegance, and individuality. As you plan your wedding makeup for the year, consider these trends to ensure that you not only look stunning on your special day but also stay ahead of the curve in the ever-evolving world of bridal beauty. 

Whether you opt for the natural glow, pops of red, balletcore beauty, ombre lips, or monochromatic magic, remember that the key is to choose a trend that resonates with your style and enhances your natural beauty, ensuring you radiate confidence and elegance as you walk down the aisle.
