Many brides start thinking about how their wedding-day makeup will look the day they get engaged. While there are plenty of options to choose from, you might want to consider a beautiful boho style. It's a perfect style to complement a beach or desert wedding, and emphasizes a warm and natural look.
"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 and soft style ? 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. Bold brushed up brows complete the look.
Pretty in Pink
The classic boho style is all about looking effortless and free-spirited. Blush and a light pink lipsticks completes this look 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.
Can’t make it to the beach before your wedding day? Don’t worry, some highlighting powder or a soft bronzer can create that same sun-kissed glow. Khan recommends adding rosehip oil to your foundation and sprinkling in a favorite champagne highlighter to achieve this look.
This beauty looks like she walked out of a fairytale with her neutral but glowing makeup, star-shaped earrings, and loose waves. The nude lip is the right hint of color against her natural look.
A Touch of Glam
Do you know what else goes well with Mexico, the sun, and tequila? A glowing bride who has nailed the boho look! Her soft orange and pink-toned lips are a nice crossover between boho and glam.
Embrace a Red Lip
A red lip is not off the table for a bohemian bride. At her Palm Spring wedding, this bride chose a deep raspberry hue to bring a bold touch to her beauty look.
A warm and rosy flush anchors this beautiful beauty look worn by a bride for her wedding in Columbia. Strong brows and a similar bronze-hued eye look pulls this elevated yet natural look together.
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.
A natural look can still be paired with a touch of shine. At her small ceremony on the beaches of Oregon, this bride applied eyeshadow to give almost a glossy look in a dusty rose hue. The look was balanced with a pink-red lip shade.
A boho bride wants to look like herself on her wedding day, but she also wants to shine. For a fun disco touch like this bride did at her Panama wedding, have your makeup artist apply glitter as highlights to your cheekbones and on your eyes.
A pair of lashes can really elevate your eye shadow and eye shape. This gold shimmery eye shadow, coupled with thick lashes, complements the rest of the soft look.
