Many brides start thinking about their wedding day makeup looks the day they get engaged. If you, too, are wondering what type of makeup look you want to rock on your big day, consider a beautiful boho 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, has a mood to it. It’s romantic and layered and leans on artistic expression rather than creating a 'look,'" she adds.
