Pass the pink champagne, please! well, at least the eyeshadow take of it. Makeup artist Karen pops a soft wash of pink all over the upper lids, then adds eyeliner before pencilling in the brows. To finish, a luscious nude-pink pout.
For a more dramatic take on pink eyeshadow, extend eyeshadow upwards and outwards to give your peepers a lifted look. A darker shade at the outer corners and a lighter one on the inner corners creates more dimension. Don’t forget to blend!
You can rock silver eyeshadow without looking like Christmas came early. Go for more subtle pearlescent shine rather than full-on glitter. Makeup artist Sha Shamsi paired the look with plush, matte lips in a soft coral hue so it complements rather than competes.
To match her elegant celebration, makeup artist Sophia gave real bride Sze Min vibrant red lips with a touch of highlighter to glam up her look.

White eyeshadow instantly refreshes tired peepers and looks very chic. A little dark eyeliner adds more pop and then you have to have strong, polished brows. Enhance your glow with highlighter on your T-zone, and a hint of peach blush.
“Korean brides love pink,” says makeup artist Ginger Lynette. “It’s so feminine and adds a youthful charm.” For both the upper and lower lids, Ginger fused a light gold with a soft peachy pink, working both into the crease lines to add more depth. A small flick of eyeliner at the ends made the eyes all the more alluring. Finally, a glossy, bright rose-pink lippie for a glam finish.
There is nothing like statement eye makeup to quickly change up your look for the evening. Update the smoky eye with a flash of purple and silver. For Asian brides with small eyes or monolids, start with a darker hue at the upper lash line and then blend it upwards and into a lighter colour to make your eyes rounder and bigger. Balance the look with a nude pink lip.

High-shine, bright pink lips aren’t reserved for girly girls. Bring on a dose of sophistication with thick eyeliner (on the bottom lid, this tapers as you reach the centre of the eye for a widening effect), a wash of warm brown on the lids and a hint of shine on the inner corners.
Update a classic bridal look with a zesty pop of peach on the eyelids, glowing highlights, and a touch of sheen. Eyeliner and voluminous lashes create definition, while high-shine gloss on lips catches the light. Slick hair back into a chic chignon and dress it up with a floral headpiece.

For the more adventurous bride, consider a blend of two bright hues that’ll add vibrance to a white wedding dress, or amp up an evening gown in the same hues. Against fair skin with a rosy undertone, the lime and aqua hues really pop. Keep the rest of your makeup nude and neutral.
The secret to more sculpted cheekbones is blending, says makeup artist Grego. “Sweep an apricot blush, which is universally flattering, onto the cheeks, and then blend in a bronzy contouring powder from the temples to the cheek hollows with an angled brush.
To soften smoky eyes, use a bronzy gold instead of black or grey. If a brown smoky eye is your go-to, use an earth-tone palette of shades within the same family, so you can build a beautiful, gradated eye with ease.
Sweep a darker shade nearer your lash line then go lighter towards the brow bone. And instead of eyeliner, try eyeshadow for subtle definition.
