For the day:

eyes Pearly taupe eyeshadow on the upper lids and a touch of gold on the lower lids are subtle enough for the day and lend glamour for the evening.

skin Lightly dust highlighter on the brow bones, nose bridge and chin to create a delicate sheen.

lips GregO toned down the rest of the makeup to enhance the sensuality of luscious burgundy lips, which complements a darker skin tone and evokes sophistication.

Tip! “Try Urban Decay’s All-Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray and Dior’s Glow Maximizer Primer for lasting makeup,” says GregO. 

For the night:

LVC Bridal 18K white gold diamond rings, from $899 (top) and from $699 (bottom). 

eyes Switch to a darker eyeshadow for the evening. Brides with darker complexions should try warm metallics like bronze and gold, says GregO. “They flatter your skin and add extra sparkle to your look.” A blend of lighter rose gold and darker gold eyeshadow also create depth and dimension.
