Some brides go for a natural “best version” of themselves for their wedding day makeup.

I would do a few practice runs if you’re doing it yourself and see what you like. If you for a bold lip, be sure to stash some with you on the day of so that you can reapply it throughout the day.

Using a rosy pink blush on your lids really brings out blue eyes, plus looks natural and glow-y 🙂

Ive always loved the bold lip with the natural light eye. If I were going to do that look I would put a neutral shadow with maybe i hint of sparkle so its soft and a black liner and mascara.  

Maybe do a fluidline/liquid liner and maybe throw in a few lashes at the end, just for fun.

oh and by sparkle, you all know i do not mean glitter!!!! ew

I have blue eyes, fair skin, and red hair (don’t let my profile pic fool ya…its old!) and I often do the bold lip look.  I recommend matte shadows. 

I’d use a pale vanilla, lash line to crease, and then sweep a slightly darker soft brown color over the lid.  You’ll end up with the lighter color popping in the corner of your eye and on your browbone, thus opening up your eyes.  I’d also do a fat cat eye line on the top lid (liquid liner is best, but if you’re uncomfortable with it then use pencil) in either black or dark brown.  I’d also add fake lashes and a fair amount of mascara (Definicils by Lancome is my favorite…you can layer it and it doesn’t clump).  Use the blush sparingly, but appropriately, making sure to dust a bit across your t-zone as well. 

And best advice that anyone can give?  PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE.  You can NOT expect to do one trial run and then replicate it.  You need to do this look multiple times, and experiment with different things.  Try it out, and have your SO take pictures so you can see how it will photograph as well.  If you use a mattifying powder you have to make sure that it won’t photograph poorly, and make you look heavily made up, as can sometimes happen as a result of the oil absorbers in the make-up.  Good luck!  Hopefully we’ll get to see some pics of your trial runs!
