This season bold, bright colors are popping up everywhere from eye shadows, lipsticks, nail polishes, clothing, handbags and shoes. Not all brides are fans of color and for these brides - less is always more. Some brides prefer the "barely there" nude makeup. The nude makeup look is a classic one that will never go out of style, but it has been revised. Creating the nude look this season is all about giving the bride an illuminated face. Her skin should look hydrated, natural and fresh. No heavy blush and definitely no heavy contouring. This is a great look for a destination bride because the dewy look always works best at a beach wedding instead of a matte face and lip.

So now you are a glowing bride on your wedding day!
