Now let’s say you’re a daring bride who likes to try out unconventional looks; if that’s the case, this smoky copper eyeshadow and nude, earthy lip is a pairing that not everyone can pull off, but if you can, you should go for the gusto!

Our pro-planner tips:

  1. Be sure to do a test run, or “dress rehearsal,” of a few looks with your make-up artist and hairstylist before the big day
  2. At your make-up and hair “dress rehearsal,” snap photos in indoor and natural light to get a feel for how the make-up will hold up in pictures on the big day.
  3. Get comfortable with your look! Brides look the most beautiful when they are comfortable, so if you don’t wear full faces of make-up often, opt for something lighter for your special moment.
