The brides who refuse to wear makeup on their wedding day

“When my husband first met me, I had not had my bath, but he saw and fell in love with my natural look. So, who am I supposed to be making all that up for on my wedding day?”

When it comes to choosing your wedding day makeup, there is an overwhelming choice of looks. There’s the classic romantic look, the glamourous red lip and cat eye, the natural bronzed look and many, many more (just check those YouTube bridal makeup tutorials).

But there’s one look that you hardly ever see on brides, which is becoming increasingly popular: the no makeup look. That’s right, your bare face, with no makeup whatsoever.

THE BEST FACIALS FOR BRIDES

Just last week, a picture of Bisola Umoren, from Lagos, Nigeria, was shared over 1,000 times on Twitter, with many praising her natural look.

The bride explained that when her husband fell in love with her, she was sporting a natural look, and she didn’t see why she should change that on her wedding day.

She told Naji.com, When my husband first met me, I had not had my bath, but he saw and fell in love with my natural look.

“My hair was due, my face looked way older, I was even tying nylon on my hair when he came to me on that fateful morning, yet he loved what he saw. So, who am I supposed to be making all that up for on my wedding day?

DELICIOUSLY ELLA'S BEST BEAUTY TIPS

“I’m not the make-up type. I don’t even wear earrings or like to drop my hair. I don’t like any form of inconvenience or discomfort on my face, my neck and entire body.

“It is not a church thing, it is just me and my personal decision.”

Since then, many brides have posted their own #nomakeupbride selfies, and we have to say, you don’t need makeup to look stunning and radiant. Take a look below…
