Step 8: Set the foundation with translucent blotting powder, to help keep makeup intact without altering the shade.
Step 9: Apply matte shadow all over the lid in a natural, creamy shade, then apply a deeper tone in the crease and outer corners of the eye to create shape and depth.
Step 10: Apply a sheer satin shadow in a shade of your choice to bring some color and pop to the eye on the lid using a fluffy blending brush to ensure it is placed sparingly. Shadows with a slight pearlized finish bring a nice pop to the eyes, but overdoing it can be too overpowering.
Step 11: Place a line of gel liner along the upper and lower lash line to create definition, making it thin near the inner corner and gradually thicker toward the outer corner. Line the inside of the eye, as well. This line is extremely budge-proof and will stay in place even if the eyes are watery, which is perfect for brides.
Step 12: Brush on a long-wear mascara with a disposable mascara wand.
