"Boho is all about glistened skin that looks radiant while using minimal products," explains makeup artist Bina Khan. "The eyes should be soft with a bronze tone, and the liner can be smudged out. Boho makeup is softer, more celebratory, and has a mood to it. It’s romantic and layered and leans on artistic expression rather than creating a 'look.'"
Want to achieve this natural, soft look? We rounded up our favorite romantic boho makeup looks to serve as inspiration for your own wedding-day beauty.
Soft Lips and Dark Brows
This bride nailed the natural boho look. Her gleaming skin pairs beautifully with the rich pink tones of her lipstick to achieve an illustrious look.
Pretty in Pink
The classic boho style is all about looking effortless and free-spirited. Blush is very on-trend, and this look is completed with a soft and gentle flush.
Green With Envy
We're jealous of this beautiful bride, who flawlessly pulled off a green wedding dress and a seamless boho look. Her makeup was an extension of her natural features while allowing the dress to be in the center of the spotlight. The overall look paired well with the backdrop of the Utah desert.

Warm-toned natural makeup looks flawless and lends a sun-kissed, natural glow that stuns in the desert. Recreate the look by applying a loose mineral foundation as a base—it is easy to apply, and most brands even include SPF.
Pop of Red
A natural look can still be paired with a pop of red. The makeup here includes a soft and smooth complexion, as well as a subtle smokey eye and a gorgeous red lip.
