We love New York Fashion Week because it is not only great for some big-day dress inspiration, the runways are rife with crazy-gorgeous beauty looks for your "I dos" too! These presentations are the perfect opportunity for makeup artists to really push their craft and go for bold, enviable looks that even the most reserved bride might want to translate into her own celebration. Our Fashion Director Elle Strauss scoured backstage to find some of the most wedding-worthy beauty looks as the models got ready to walk. Her favorite? The bold red lip at Jason Wu! To learn more about this punchy makeup choice and how to get it for your own wedding day, read more below.
In case you didn't notice it right as the models walked down the runway, the inspiration for Jason Wu's show — glamour — was chicly, plainly stamped across the top of his show notes. However you interpret the word, shouldn't it be the go-to adjective for practically every bride when thinking about her big-day look? Jason's version — the kind of glamour that has an air of undone elegance — included ruffled gown after ruffled gown in gorgeous shades of cocktail-hour corals.

But what truly made the look was the girls' standout lip color. Makeup artist Yadim applied Maybelline's Vivid Matte Liquid in Rebel Red and layered a ruby red pigment over it, creating a rich, deep crimson tone. Paired with glowing skin, barely-there eye makeup and a simple, sleek bun, Jason showed us the prettiest way to do evening — and bridal — wear.
