Minimal makeup or no-makeup makeup has been a massive trend for years, and it continues to dominate the scene this season. And since Megan Markle shined in her wedding with minimal makeup, its popularity as a bridal trend has grown significantly. The look demands and reflects confidence and freshness. To allow your skin to glow naturally and reduce the makeup presence to the minimum, you need to take extra care of your skin a while before the big day by exfoliating and moisturizing it well.

The latter gives a bolder look than waterlining. If you prefer to break the edginess a bit, go for unfinished eyelining; it’s also quite trendy. And for extra glamor, add a white eyeshadow, shimmery or matte, to the inner corners of your eyes; it would chase away any signs of tiredness from your eyes.
