If there’s one thing we find hard to find online, it’s wedding makeup inspiration for brides with dusky and wheatish complexions. Wasn’t there anything out there that was fresh, young and without the use of a maroon lipstick?!

We looked everywhere and spotted 9 Dusky Bridal Makeup Looks you need to look at. These brides looked beautiful and their makeup artists did such a fabulous job making them look like the best versions of themselves!

Bright Pouts

Pink Lipstick to Match the Pink Blouse & Bangles

Heavy bridal makeup for this dusky beauty with a red pout and fake lashes highlighting her eyes, while the eyeshadow was kept a beautiful metallic hue playing off the bright colour of her blouse.

Deep Lip Colour with Winged Liner

This bride chose an almost light bridal makeup look, with a lipstick shade that’s not exactly bright but not nude either. Her eyes have been kept fairly simple with only a winged liner adding some glam.

Pop of Orange on a Matte Base for Day Wedding

When a celebrity stylist gets married, she gets her bridal makeup spot on! We loved not only the bright orange Anita Dongre lehenga she wore to her day wedding, but also the complementing makeup – bright lips, the slightest hint of orange blush on the cheeks and matte nude eye makeup with only softly lined eyes. It was not too matchy-matchy, but instead understated in how it coordinated with the bridal outfit.

Focus on the Eyes

A Dewy Gorgeous Look!

Our favourite dusky bridal makeup look! This dewy style was achieved with glossy lips, luminous eye makeup that makes her eyes look big and bright, and highlighting.

Thick Kohl-Rimmed Eyes With Nude Lips

This is one of the looks created by celebrity bridal makeup artist, Namrata Soni, for 2019 brides. The bride’s eyes have been highlighted with generous amounts of kajal and a soft gold eyeshadow. A hint of blush and pinkish nude lipstick create the perfect finish.

The Perfect Reception Makeup

Another look created for the 2019 bride by Namrata Soni, this bride has lightly lined eyes with a reddish copper eyeshadow and reddish nude lipstick. The makeup artist’s expert touch in highlighting and lightly contouring make it a good one to pin for dusky brides!
