1. Keep it simple. It’s your day and you want to look like YOU. Go for a glam smokey eye but keep the rest natural and pretty. Or if you want a red lip, go for soft shadows and a subtle smudged liner. When you look back at photos from your wedding day, you want to recognize yourself.

2. Stash a little powder and lip gloss in your maid of honor’s clutch or groom’s pocket. Those are the two things that always need to be touched up. You’re going to be running around talking to everyone, but your groom or maid of honor will be by your side for the entire evening. You’ll want to look fresh in all your photos, not to mention all the iPhone pics your friends are snapping.

3. WATERPROOF! Mascara and eyeliner are a must-have waterproof item for your big day. If the ceremony doesn’t have you tearing up, your friends and family’s speeches certainly will.

4. Try a lip stain under your gloss. With all of the eating, drinking and celebrating, you don’t want to risk being bare-lipped. Once you find your perfect hue, use a stain to make sure that color lasts all night, then just touch up with a gloss for a nice full pout.
