Now, if only I could plan a second wedding :).

Look 1: Classic Beauty

A Classic Beauty look can complement any hairstyle or dress, but would look especially beautiful with a strapless, form fitting gown. The goal is to look like a polished version of yourself.  For the eyes, I used a light beige shadow on the lid and a medium brown in the crease. I lined the eyes with a black gel liner and used individual lashes to bring out the eyes. I used a muted pink on the cheeks and a mauve lipstick to complete the look.

 Look 2: Bold Beauty

A bold lip and winged eyeliner are a great option if you’re looking for a bit more flair to match a stand out dress, like the ombre feathered frock above. I let the makeup and dress do all the talking, and tied my hair back in a soft updo. I also added some white eyeliner to the inner waterline to make my eyes look bigger.

Look 3. Glamorous Beauty

For the last look, I was smitten by the high neck and lace detail of this gorgeous dress. To complement the glamour of the dress, I did a smokey eye in browns and golds with long lashes. I also added highlight and contour for more dimension since my hair is pulled back, and I finished the look with a fleshy lip color.
