Softly highlighted cheeks: With a thousand cameras pointed at your perfect visage, there’s no denying that luminous and beautifully highlighted cheekbones can complete any bride’s makeup. Turn to a glowing complexion and cheeks strobed with gold highlighter. Meanwhile, a delicate pink pout and defined black eyeliner can instantly bring your face to life.

Glimmering golden lids: There’s no rule that you can’t experiment with colourful eyeshadow on your wedding! Start off by creating a beautiful smokey eye with smudged grey and copper shadows, and then complement your eyelids with voluminous false lashes. The addition of pale pink blush and rosy pink lips allows your striking eyes to truly stand out.

Rich violet and red shades: To complement an olive or tan complexion, define your upper eyelids with dark pink and light red eyeshadow, combined with grey. Use black liquid liner to bring the focus to your lids, and apply false lashes or lashings of black mascara. For a slightly exotic look, turn to bronzer, contoured cheeks and soft purple lipstick.
