Prep Time: Exfoliate!
Use a gentle exfoliant the night before your wedding to ensure a smooth and flawless makeup application. love is Kate Somerville's ExfoliKate Gentle Exfolianting Treatment ($65).  It's gentle yet very effective!
Primer & Foundation
I primed Angela's face with Temptu's primer ($12 for 1 oz.) and then airbrushed her skin with Temptu's SB foundation in number 3 ($27.50).  If you aren't able to airbrush, I suggest using Armani Luminous Silk foundation ($60) and primer ($57).  
All About The Eyes
Your eyes should really "pop" on your wedding day!  One way to do this is by adding false lashes.  On this particular bride I used Ardell strip lashes 120 ($11.03) to give her that gorgeous wide-eyed look. Be sure to trim the false lashes before applying so that they don't hang past your natural lash line. All the eyeshadows I used come in Too Faced Cosmetic's The Natural Eye palette ($32.40).  This is a very flattering palette for most skin tones and comes with fun instructions for different eye looks. From this palette I used 'Silk Teddy'  from lash to brow and 'Cocoa Puff' in the crease. I then lined and then lined the eyes with 'Sexspresso'.
Lips & Cheeks
I applied MAC blush in 'Pinch O' Peach' ($25.64) to the apples of Angela's cheeks.  To complete her look I used Sonia Kashuk's Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Pinky Nude 09 ($7.59) to line and fill in her lips.  To give the lips a hint of shine, I  dotted on a bit of Sephora's Glossy Gloss in Pink Macaroon 11 ($12).
