While Bridal Fashion Week may provide us with wedding gown Pinterest fodder for days, let's not forget about the dreamy beauty looks it offers, as well! And with shows such as Lela Rose, Alfred Angelo and Marchesa already behind us, we know one thing's for certain: You don't need to wait until Fall 2017 to mimic these stunning wedding beauty looks.

Two big trends converge for this ladylike look: pink eyeshadow and monochromatic makeup. By matching your lids and lips with similar shades of pastel pink, you are creating a demure tone that is rounded out with full, youthful brows and a glowy complexion. Translation? Start a glow-inducing skincare routine and letting your brows grow in fuller today!
If you've ever thought about giving the flower crown trend a little added glamour, the geniuses behind Marchesa's look read your mind. By giving your hair adornment structure in the form of pearls, crystals and precious metal, you still get that floral vibe, but with much more polish. We also can't look away from the models' pearly inner-eyes. Wet an angled brush and then dip it into a shimmery white or platinum-colored shadow to get the effect.
Classic glamour with a modern twist was the name of the beauty game at Alfred Angelo. How exactly was it accomplished? Make sure your red lipstick has orange undertones and a semi-matte finish, make your cat-eye flick so thin it's almost geometric, and of course highlight, highlight, highlight.
Oh happy day! The outdoor, boho-inspired wedding of your dreams isn't going out of style any time soon, and Theia's show made that quite clear. Simply update those surfer girl tendrils by adding a healthy dose of volume (the new boho wave), and make sure your flower crown is one-part flower crown and one-part mermaid crown by integrating pearls, shells and sea stars into the florals.

Anyone who suggests that brides can't be utterly au courant when it comes to beauty needs to check out this show! Pink eyeshadow is sticking around as a trend in a big way, and brides can embrace it right along with the rest of the world. Two big tips: Keep your eye drops handy so there isn't a hint of redness in your actual eyes (no matter how much celebrating you've been doing) and keep the rest of your makeup subtle, so the eyes can really shine.
Lela Rose's girl is a nature-lover who knows the importance of minimalism. If that speaks to you, then her brand of healthy, 'just went for a run' beauty is probably what you should strive for on your big day! Think glowing skin, lips that are a bit redder than nature and very little eye makeup.
If your wedding day is all about fantasy, then perhaps your nuptial makeup should be, as well! That is the strong message from Rime Arodaky's runway, and we love it. Take your highlighting game to all new levels and actually make your lids and cheekbones take on a high-wattage shine. We suggest layering highlighters to achieve this—so think about using your cream stick, your powder and your liquid formula at the same time (we get giddy just thinking about it!).
