Your Guide To The Ultimate Bachelorette Party Makeup

A bachelorette party is one of the bridal events that many women look forward to most besides the wedding itself. It's an opportunity to celebrate your upcoming nuptials with your closest friends, bridal party, and family. The best thing about them is that there's no one way to do a bachelorette party; it all depends on how you want to celebrate. Multi-day blowout, a weekend away, or one big night out — you have options for your celebratory event.

But all the options might seem overwhelming when you're trying to figure out what to wear, how to do your hair, and what makeup to do. Your bachelorette party is a great time to experiment with beauty and get cute pictures to remember the experience. When planning your bachelorette party, don't forget to also plan your bachelorette makeup looks when deciding what to wear or pack. Get inspired by these makeup vibes for your bachelorette party events, and you won't need to hire a glam squad to recreate the looks.

Sipping drinks at a winery

Go for a soft day makeup look with a more natural touch. Keeping the makeup light will ensure it looks good when you're outside, especially on a particularly hot day. Use a light satin foundation or tinted moisturizer for an even skin tone and a little bit of blush and highlighter to create a natural glow. Keep eye makeup light with pink, peachy, or nude eyeshadow and fluffy lashes and brows. A tinted gloss that doesn't transfer is a must when you'll be having a few glasses throughout the day.

Going dancing

Elevate your night out look with bold colors and a little bit of edge. If you're going to spend the night dancing with your girls to celebrate your upcoming nuptials, you deserve to go a little wild. Make your eyes the center of attention with a statement color like blue, purple, or red. Add a classic wing and length to your lashes with mascara or falsies. On your face, opt for a light foundation and a little contouring, but be sure to use a strong setting spray so you don't smear while dancing the night away.

Sailing on a boat cruise

Whether you're chartering a private boat or doing a cocktail cruise, you're going to want cute pictures, so your makeup is going to have to stand up to wind, water, and sweat. Keep it light on your face and eyes with tinted moisturizer and a sheer SPF. A sheer shimmery eyeshadow will catch the light and give you a little glam. Use waterproof eyeliner for a minimalistic wing and waterproof mascara to define your lashes. Finish with a waterproof setting spray to keep it all in place.

Dining at a fancy restaurant

Splurging on a fancy meal is a must during your bachelorette party. For this event, you can lean into full glam and really get dolled up. Prep your face with a primer to keep all the makeup in place before adding foundation. You can do a full face of contour and highlight that will make you look like a VIP. For your eyes, you can't go wrong with a classic smoky eye technique with grays and blacks or browns and golds. Line the inner corners and lower lid and choose long, dark eyelashes.

Watching a cabaret or show

If you're going to a cabaret, drag show, or any other kind of show, you can get a little more creative with your makeup. This is the event to try out the colors you might not use often or try new color combinations. Purples, blues, greens, and yellows are all statement colors for eye makeup. Add glitter or sequins to give a fun detail. Use colored liners to create bold graphic patterns and fun shapes. Bold lips and highlighter are two more great ways of adding color to your look.

Exploring a city

You never know where a day of exploring will lead you. If you're wandering around a city, you need a makeup look that's versatile. A natural barely-there makeup look is ideal for the kind of days when you might check out a museum, go sightseeing, or find cute shops to walk around. Start with a base of a primer, tinted moisturizers, SPF, and concealer. Add a dewy glow with a glossy highlighter on the high points of your face. Use a brow gel, a little mascara, and a natural-colored eyeshadow. An optional lip tint adds a pop of color.
