8. If a brown smoky eye is your go-to, use an earth tone palette that offers shades within the same color family, so you can build a beautiful, gradated smoky eye with ease. To complete the look, sweep an apricot blush (which is universally flattering) over your cheeks and a clear gloss onto your lips.

9. Try an overall lighter look to really show off your natural beauty (this is especially good for outdoor weddings) by keeping your eyeliner more intense along the outer corner of your eyes. Finish with a light pink cheek color and a soft, yet bright pink shade on your lips.

10. Pair a silver, smoky, fully lined eye with an apricot blush and a nude lip color for a stunning finish.

11. To create a well-rested look (because you know you won't catch a wink the night before your wedding), top your lids with white liner and blend it in so just a subtle hint is left. Then, trace your top lash line only with black liner and apply a peach cream blush to your cheeks and lips.

13. Even though it's your wedding day, you don't have to go all out when it comes to your makeup. If you prefer a no-makeup makeup look, pair a neutral taupe eyeshadow with a taupe lipstick and a touch of blush.

14. For a minimal makeup look, line your inner upper and lower lash lines, and pat some highlighter cream onto your cheekbones to amp up the glow you already have BECAUSE YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!

15. For a sexy look that's still subdued, create a smoky winged eye, skip blush, and apply bronzer on your cheekbones, then finish with a pale pink lip.

16. Smoky eyes don't always have to consist of charcoal or gray shades. Use a jade shadow to create the same effect but also throw some color into the mix. Then, apply a peach blush over your cheeks and a sheer pink gloss over your lips.

17. For a naturally beautiful makeup look that puts the focus on your lips, pair an orchid-colored lipstick with subtly lined eyes and peach blush.
