How To Choose A Wedding Veil That Matches Your Wedding Makeup

How To Choose A Wedding Veil That Matches Your Wedding Makeup

There are so many things to think about when you’re getting everything organised for your wedding, and there are some things that you might not think about at all – either you didn’t realise they were important, or you just forgot because there are so many other things to think about.


Take a deep breath and try to relax. Remember, your wedding day is important, but it’s also meant to be fun and something you look back on with positive feelings, so don’t get too stressed and just take one thing at a time. For example, your wedding veil; if you’re having one, you’ll want to pick one that matches your wedding makeup so the whole look comes together how you want it to, and with that in mind, here are some things to think about.

What’s Your Makeup Style?

The first thing to do when you’re looking at ways to make sure your wedding veil matches or complements your makeup is to think about the makeup style you want. For example, you might want a ‘barely-there’ kind of look, or perhaps you’d prefer something that’s bolder and makes a bigger statement – it’s down to how comfortable you feel and what you prefer, as everything should be when it comes to your wedding.


Once you know what kind of makeup you want, you can start looking for veils that work well with that style. If you look at Lace and Favour, for example, you’ll see there are many different types of veil, each one something that could work with a specific type of makeup – soft and romantic, modern and edgy, and so on. If the two things can work on the same level, it makes things easier and also ensures you get the look you love.

Match Fabrics And Textures

Think about the type of makeup you’re going to wear, and then you can look at veils that match or perhaps mimic the look of that makeup through the fabric and texture. For example, you might have sparkly makeup, which means you can opt for a sparkly veil. Or perhaps there’s a hint of colour to the makeup, and you might be able to find a veil that has the same kind of delicate colouring to it (remember, veils might be traditionally white, but they definitely don’t have to be, and shouldn’t be if that won’t work with your theme).


If you can find one thing that links the veil and the makeup together, you can feel happy with your choice, and on top of that, you can take that one thing and extend it so that everything you choose for your wedding has the same look.

Do A Trial Run

It’s always a good idea to talk to your wedding makeup artist about their ideas and give some of your own and schedule a trial run, where different makeup looks can be done and you can choose what you love the most.


When you schedule that makeup trial, why not have a range of veils with you? You might be able to borrow some or rent them, or you might need to buy more than one and send everything except the one you choose to go with your makeup back to the shop. Doing this kind of trial run means you won’t have any nasty surprises on the day, and you’ll be able to experiment properly before committing to any particular look.
