• Every girl dreams of her wedding day, but not every girl dreams of over-the-top wedding makeup. The smoky-eyed, lash-heavy Kim Kardashian route just isn't for everyone, which is why we've collected these gorgeous wedding makeup ideas perfect for showing off your natural beauty, rather than your face full of makeup.

    Choose a watermelon pink lipstick in a matte formula that'll last all day, and pair it with fresh, semi-matte skin and mascara.

    To emphasize eyes without shadow, line the upper lid with black liquid liner, widening the stroke as you reach the outer corner of the eye.

    Offset a soft, well-blended smoky eye with a sheer nude lipstick, or make like Angelina and opt for a clear gloss.

    Dewy, glowing skin looks gorgeous on its own, so let it shine by adding a touch of black liner along the inner rims of eyes for definition.

    For a complexion that's dewy but not shiny, use blotting papers rather than powder when you've finished applying the rest of your makeup.

    Nothing brightens up your entire face better—or faster—than a vivid hot pink lipstick in a hydrating satiny finish. We love BITE BEAUTY High Pigment Pencil ($24, sephora.com) in Corvina.

    A soft pink blush paired with a sheer, shiny neutral gloss on lips is simple and classic.

    When wearing an otherwise soft, neutral makeup look, be sure to fill in and groom brows to anchor the face.
