I also second Lcturner 3, doing the little things on your face like lightly filling in your eyebrows and adding a bit of blush may sound tedious and costly, but they add just that little bit more definition to your face and give it a bit more dimension. Also if you stick to brands like Rimmel, Covergirl and Maybelline, it shouldn’t cost much at all. Another way to save money on makeup is to reuse products for different parts of the face i.e. I often use brown eyeshadow to fill my brows also, and I just used a small angled brush to do that, just to make sure that my brows look neat. If you’re feeling really daring, you can even use a light shimmery (not green or blue, obviously) eyeshadow as a highlighter, and just pop it on the top of your cheekbones very lightly, to make them more pronounced. Also just little things, like you don’t have to go all out crazy doing winged eyeliner, but just grabbing an eyepencil and smudging it into your lashline will make your lashes look thicker and make your eyes stand out more. I know it all sounds crazy and over the top, but it’s the sort of stuff that will make your features really stand out on your wedding day, and if you use drugstore makeup, and re-purpose some of the products it shouldn’t be too costly either.
