Glitter can be a girl’s best friend, especially on her wedding day.

Glitter on your eyes, as well as your lips, will definitely stand out. This is makeup look is soft and girly. As you can see, you don’t need to use bright colours to sparkle.

12. Smokey Brown Cut Crease

Add a dramatic stare by having winged eyeliner and cut crease look.

This is a heavier look compared to your standard bridal makeup but it’s whatever you feel comfortable and special with during the day. Every bride is different so don’t be worrying about whether this is too heavy, it’s your day and you make your own rules. This cut crease looks perfect in brown.

13. Glitter Lower Lash Line

Instead of having glitter on your eyelids, try adding it to your lower lash line.

It can be hard to find a perfect red lipstick at the best of times, let alone for our wedding. You need to be confident that it will stay on all day, but there are so many different brands out there, so do not worry. Being a fan of red lips can benefit your wedding in many ways. It can tie in with your theme and it can be a vintage inspired look. Applying red lipstick can sometimes be tricky so practice before your big day. To ensure that your red lips last all day, ensure you apply a thin layer of primer or foundation to your lips before you apply your lipstick and drink from a straw during the day. Before you walk down the aisle, check your teeth to make sure there is no lipstick on them! Keep your eyelids simple and glitter free. The emphasis must keep to your red luscious lips. Use a red lip liner to make your lips look bigger and fuller.

16. Sparkly Eyes with Long, Voluminous Lashes

It’s all about the eyes.

When your husband-to-be looks into your eyes, he will think he’s the luckiest man alive. Make him stare at your gorgeous eyes by having sparkly and voluminous lashes. If you’re uncomfortable with false eyelashes, maybe you could think about getting eyelash extensions a few days before.

17. Makeup Look for Brown Eyes

Brown eyes look incredible with brown glitter eyeshadow.

Make sure you use a brown eyeshadow for underneath your eyes and slightly smudge to add effect.

18. Sparkly, Romantic Eyes

Wearing glitter for festivals and other events can be simple.

Wearing glitter for your wedding can be a different story. You need to think about the colour, the texture, will it go with your dress, your wedding theme and even your lip colour. This sparkly, romantic look will go with any dress and all you have to think about is your lip colour. Go with a nude lip-gloss or a nude matte lipstick.

19. Wedding Makeup Look for Brunettes

Wearing shades that suit our hair, is vital to our style.

We love this style for brunettes. Glistening eyeshadow in this tone complements dark hair. Dark eyes and dark hair goes together so well with shimmering eyeshadow.

20. Smokey Glam

When it comes to your wedding day, anything you want goes.

If you want smokey eyes on your day, you will have smokey eyes. Getting married is a big step and you need to feel yourself and comfortable all day. Take a look at this gorgeous, glamourous, smokey eyes look. Your face will look flawless and sophisticated all day. If you decide on doing your own makeup like Kate Middleton did on her day, make sure you get as much practice in as possible before your big day. The more you practice smokey-eyes, the more you’ll be at ease on your wedding morning. We all know what happens when our makeup doesn’t go according to plan on a night out, think about how you’ll feel if this happened? You need to iron out any creases that you have beforehand so if you come across any makeup problems, you’ll know what to do and stay calm.

    Love all the looks but it’s kind of crazy that every single makeup look is of a Caucasian women. Women of every cultural background should be represented here. There are so many of these looks that could have featured women of other shades.

    I agree with Shay ; although all of these looks are beautiful and so are the women wearing them but it only represents one race; I’m Afro-Latina and I these looks are not a representation of me.

    Always someone bitching somewhere about how an ad or commercial does not represent there ethniticity or there culture or there religious beliefs, or there political views. WTF! Can we not just enjoy an Fing book or movie or commercial or news story without worrying about all the rest of the shit?
    I’m a Caucasian female with Italian, German, Irish, and British roots and yeah I enjoyed this ad for eye makeup!

    Bonnie no one cares where you’re from. You are rude. It would be nice if there were a few different skin tones because the fact that every single model has every color eyes but brown makes it kind of difficult to get a good idea on which color looks best for brown eyes. You know. The dominant eye color. Meaning more people have brown eyes then not. So yea this post is accurate and you’re just annoying. Also you’re fighting with a post from 2016. Don’t you have anything better to do? Go take your Caucasian Italian German Irish British entitled a** to therapy. Cause you need it. Spare anyone who has to deal with you.

    I am also Caucasian and a mix of a bunch of roots…but I represent a brand of white people that agree other skin tones and ethnicities should have been included in this article. The fact that you enjoyed this article but condemn people from a different color for pointing out it is very non inclusive means you have some personal problems with your uppity righteous close minded bland skin tone. Go tan somewhere and bleach your hair and join the barbie doll collection. Actually, even Barbie dolls are becoming more inclusive so I can’t even say that. Just take a big sit down and shut up.
