Every bride wants to have her something borrowed, something blue, something old, and something new, but it can be hard to fit all of that into your bridal look. Perhaps your mother lent you a pair of her earrings, and your grandmother has a special brooch that you attached to your bouquet. Obviously, your dress counts as something new, so all that leaves is the something blue. Rather than trying to tie that into your obviously not blue wedding bouquet and theme, add a touch of blue to your makeup with our something blue makeup ideas.
There are so many something blue makeup ideas, you may have a tough time deciding which one to use. Luckily, there is something for every style.
1. Nail polish
You may not consider that makeup, but we are definitely keeping it in our list. You could go with a classic French manicure but with blue tips for a beautiful twist or you can just go with a pale baby blue color for the full nails.
No, you’re not having flashbacks to middle school. Your makeup artist, or yourself if you’re talented in that area, can create a wonderfully bridal look using a pale blue to make your eyes really pop or a bright and bold blue option that will instantly capture everyone’s attention.
Add a minimal bit of blue, just enough to follow tradition by using a slim blue eyeliner. Use it to add a pop of color to your upper lids or top and bottom.
With all the different options out there in makeup, you had better believe that they have a blue mascara as well. This is the least dramatic way to wear blue makeup and still get points for the tradition, without pulling away from natural makeup styles.
