Sofia Vergara Won't Be Your Traditional Bride

by Jodie Layne

Sofia Vergara doesn't care about following tradition for her wedding, and she's starting with her makeup. Thanks to an interview with People, we've found out that Sofia Vergara's wedding look is going to be more sexy and smoldering than pure and natural when she ties the knot to actor Joe Manganiello. “Personally, I know that I don’t like the natural look that some brides do. I’m 43, I don’t really need to look like a virgin getting married,” Vergara told People at a CoverGirl event on Sept. 23.

Although it sometimes seems like there isn't such a thing as a "standard wedding" in 2015, the "natural" look does tend to win out from my experience. I think it's pretty rad that so many brides just want to look like themselves on their weddings, but "looking like yourself" doesn't have to mean forgoing fun colors or a smoky eye. For Vergara, looking like herself means working her trademark makeup look.

“I want to look sexy. I want to look great. I want to look good and [wear] something that I know is going to look good in pictures. I know I’m going to do something that will make me feel pretty and well put together," she told People.

There are as many ways to wear a look that feels natural to us as there are women in this world, and this is a good reminder of that. Here are just five times Vergara proved sexy makeup is her thing.

A white dress and a bold lip pair really well here.

See? Smoky eyes, dramatic lashes, and a rich red or berry lip are kind of her look — so what else would she wear on her wedding day?
