Using the color palette of cherry blossom trees to do the makeup of the bride and bridesmaid is a perfect way to compliment cherry blossoms incorporated into your wedding ceremony. Using soft pinks, purples, creamy tones and browns, you can easily match the natural beauty of cherry blossoms. Make sure not to overdo the makeup, because you want your look to look as naturally beautiful as the cherry blossoms!
