1. Even if you don’t normally wear much makeup, on your wedding day, start with a good foundation to leave your skin looking flawless in photos. Blend it into your skin using a large, fluffy brush.


2. For a fresh twist on the traditional smoky eye, try purple shadows instead of the usual grays and blacks. Brush lilac shadow all over your lids, apply a darker shade in the creases, and then line your eyes with violet pencil.  


3. To balance the dramatic eye makeup, complete this sultry look with a berry lip color applied straight from the tube; try Covergirl Outlast Longwear Lipstick in Plum Fury.
