You would notice in the pictures, but its all up to you. I barely wear make up at all and on my wedding day I wore much less make up than alot of my guests, I only had foundation, mascara, eyeliner and lipcolor. I had no eyeshadow, no fake lashes and no primer or any sort. Personally if I were you I would were atleast mascara and alittle lip color, but You gotta do what you’re comfortable with though.

I would definitely notice if the bride was not wearing makeup, and I think you might regret it when looking at your photos later.  I would at least wear a some light eyeshadow and mascara, a little blush, and lip color.

I think everyone looks beautiful on their wedding day regardless if they wear a ton of make-up or not.

If you don’t want to wear any, then don’t! But I do think it might be a good idea to exfoliate and moisturize well the day of and maybe wear a bit of coloured lip balm. That way you look like the best/truest form of yourself. 🙂

I’d definitely be wearing makeup on my wedding day, even though my every day life I go without makeup for the most part, except on date night and out with the girls. Makeup doesn’t necessarily make you look like someone you aren’t, if applied minimally and correctly. Evening out your skincolor and covering blemishes does wonders, and still makes you stay true to how you really look.

I think if you are going to be most comfortable in no makeup, then dont wear any!! But I think if you usually wear makeup to special occasions, why not wear a bit for the specialist occasion. I think you will notice in pictures. Sometimes especially if pictures are taken outside you could look very stark or washed out. But again its your wedding day and you should do what you feel most comfortable with.

I completely understand wanting to not only look but also feel like yourself on your wedding day. That’s the reason I am doing my own make up, I don’t trust someone else to do what I really want. However, one of the main reasons to wear make up is because of pictures. Depending on the time of day, the light may or may not be better with make up. Even the smallest amount could make a huge difference in the pictures, even if in person you look relatively the same. I would suggest a light mineral powder as a foundation, with a bit of mascara. Your eyes will really pop in pictures with a small amount, and you won’t feel terribly made up. Hope this helps! Post pics of whatever you try! =)

@lessons: yes, i’d notice. arguably, the idea is you want to look like the best version of yourself. you’ve (universal “you”, not you in particular!) spent hundreds or thousands on a gorgeous dress and to pair it with a blotchy face would just seem unfinished. if you don’t like wearing makeup, i’d put a wash of a tinted moisturizer or bare minerals to make sure you have an even skintone, some blush, tinted lip balm, and neutral eyeshadow. wearing makeup doesn’t mean you have to put on gobs of foundation, eyeliner and red lipstick.

If you’re comfortable with it and want to represent yourself in truest form, then go for it.  I dont wear make up on a daily basis, but I definitely wanted makeup for the wedding.  I do like how I look with some on, I’m just too lazy to do it everyday.

I would at least wear a tinted moisturizer to even out your skin tone and maybe some cherry chapstick as nerves make some peoples lips colorless. I would also have some transparent powder on hand to control shine as sweating in your wedding dress can cause the shine to screw up your pictures.

If it’s going to be hardly noticeable, why bother? I don’t wear make-up and would feel a bit silly if I did so just for my wedding day. It woudln’t look right.

Do whatever you feel comfortable doing, and don’t let anyone pressure you into doing otherwise 🙂

.After the day is said and done you and and your husband will have your memories and photos of the day to look back upon, I know I alwyas loook washed out in pictures, and I would be said if that is how I looked .

I would use a tinted moisturizer, blush, and eye liner. Try to light light makeup in natural shades. Maybe bare minerals would be something worth trying.

I never wear makeup, but wore a little bit on our wedding day. You couldn’t even tell, but I looked like a flawless version of myself. Very little foundation, some eye shadow, and a tiny bit of blush. That was it!

I agree completely with @playingdaisy! Even if you dont wear makeup everyday it is nothing wrong with applying makeup to cover up blemishes and still looking “freshfaced” and very natural.

Here are some makeup looks I found that look very polished and beautiful but not caked on or fake:

Yes, people would notice. You will notice in your pictures.   

Without any make-up, I look like an anemic person on their death-bed. Not what I want to see when I look at my wedding pictures.

A good make-up artist can make you look like yourself, just slightly enhanced.  As my make-up artist said, it’s the natural, bare look that takes the most time and work, not the dramatic make-up.
