Your wedding day is the time to shine. Friends and family gather to celebrate your love and commitment to your one and only. With so much on your plate, the last thing you should have to worry about is your wedding make up. Use these tips to make dazzling your groom and guests a breeze as you present your best side to your new future.

This wedding season, there are four looks to make you into the glowing bride you’ve always wanted to be.

Be Bold
Dress up your luscious lips with a bright red to add a touch of old Hollywood flair to your big day. Remember to keep mascara and eyeliner neutral and subtle so your lips can steal the show. Wine hued shades are striking as well, and may work better with cooler skin tones. The blue tones in wine lipsticks have the wonderful added bonus of making your pearly whites sparkle. For the best results, use a lip brush and line your lips well and avoid sweeping on gloss. This will keep your pout popping all night. Whether red or wine is your color, your dreamy hubby won’t be able to take his eyes off your mouth.

Catch Their Eye
Dramatic eye make-up can say a lot to your future husband. It can remind him there is still mystery in Mrs. Right, and it will tell him he is marrying a woman with confidence.  The Smokey Eye technique is a timeless classic and suits all eye shapes.  The popular colour schemes at the moment are chocolate browns and for the more daring, even classic black.  With this look it is ideal to complement your bold eyes with a neutral or shimmering nude. Like wearing classic red lipstick, it is important to only highlight one feature dramatically and keep the rest of your makeup minimal.

Channel Your Natural Beauty
A beautiful touch; a pretty & natural Bride is always in style. This ‘Oh-so –soft’ makeup look is so easy to do! There is something magical about this look, it just works for everyone. Just add a touch of neutral shadows to the eyes using greys, browns and taupes and finish with some soft definition along your lashline using a darker shadow in the same tones.  For your lips, it’s all about adding just a hint of colour by dabbing on some of your favourite  soft lip colour then spotting a touch of gloss in the centre. Ditch the powder blush with this look and press in the remaining lip colour on your fingers onto your cheeks for a natural rouge.  A simple and elegant way to add glamour to your nuptial.

Colours of Autumn
Auburn colors work wonders, especially in highlighting hazel and blue eyes. Or think greys or neautrals for green and brown eyes.  If you want to go for the auburn look, pair it with a natural or peach toned color for your lips. These two make a fantastic couple, almost as perfect as you and your husband. If you want stunning eyes, but darker colors aren’t your thing, make your eyes pop with these simple steps. First, sweep the color across your lids, then lightly line with a black pencil, and finally, add a burst of color to the corners of your eyes. Wear this dazzling look with a natural or peach color on your lips to accentuate without over doing it.
