White is a neutral colour that has an element of joyfulness to it. It can be styled in countless ways and almost every girl has a white dress in their wardrobe – be it a formal shirt, a graphic T-shirt, or a long gown. Although white dresses are super chic, sometimes your outfit and the look can go wrong if you wear too much or no makeup at all. Since the colour gives you plenty of options to play with, getting the makeup right can get tricky and overwhelming. If you’re planning to wear a white dress and thinking of experimenting with some makeup looks, you have come to the right place. We are here to help you achieve what you can call the perfect makeup for a white dress, and make a beautiful style statement in multiple ways.
1. No-makeup makeup look
If you are someone who loves a natural ‘no makeup’ look, here’s what you can do. Start with a dewy primer to add a luminous glow to your complexion. We recommend that you skip the foundation and directly apply the concealer for a natural finish. Try the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool to find the ideal concealer shade for your white dress makeup look. To make your cheeks look flushed and fresh, add a tint of colour, apply the tiniest amount of blush to the apples of your cheeks. Go easy on your eye makeup and try to keep your eyes simple and almost bare by coating your eyelashes with a mascara. Since you want a simple makeup for your white dress, you can keep your lip makeup subtle and use a tinted lip balm to enhance your natural lip colour.
2. Monochrome look
Monochrome makeup helps you play around with a lot of different shades to create magic, and it’s universally flattering. Start this look by doing your face makeup as always and then add a pop of coral to your cheeks with the Maybelline Fit Me Mono Blush – Coral. To take things up a notch, you need a stunning eye makeup for your white dress. Pair the Maybelline New City Mini Eyeshadow Palette – Brooklyn Orange with the winged eyeliner look and let your eyes do the talking. Finish off your white dress makeup look by lightening up your lips with a coral lipstick.
3. Smokey eyes
Keep your base makeup simple and add a quotient of glamour by highlighting certain parts of your face with the Maybelline Facestudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter. Start your eye makeup by shaping your eyebrows. Take your makeup to the next level by opting for the Maybelline Nudes Eyeshadow Palette and creating the smokey eye look. Finally, define your eyes with a kajal and finish the look with a red lipstick.
4. Colourful eyes
Start by keeping your base subtle and go for the vibrant green eyeshadow from the Maybelline New City Mini Eyeshadow Palette – Central Park Brights to create a show-stopping eye makeup for your white dress. You can go a mile extra by using the navy blue eyeliner on your lower lash and pair this look with a fuchsia lipstick to have fun with contrasting colours.
Almost everyone owns a white gown as it is evergreen and always in style. Give a dramatic effect to your white gown makeup by creating the cut crease eyeshadow look. To achieve this look, apply a brown eyeshadow to the crease of your eyes. Follow this step by using a brightening concealer across your eyelid and cut your crease in a clean semi-circle. Pair your eyeshadow with a kajal, and lift and sculpt your lashes using a mascara. For the lips, you can opt for a pink lipstick.
Apart from these ideas, you can always play around with various colours and shades and Maybelline is here to help you get that perfect look, which you can call your signature makeup for a white gown. If these looks sound overwhelming and you’re not sure enough, here’s what you can do. Use the Maybelline Virtual Try-On tool and experiment with different face, eye and lip products from the comfort of your home. This tool helps to make the process of finding the correct makeup a lot easier without you having to spend a penny. Now that you are confident, rock the white dress in style and have all eyes on you.
