Wedding season has arrived. Whether you have an invitation to a glitzy black-tie event or beachfront affair, you want to look your best. (After all, chances are those candid group shots will wind up on Facebook!)
With my beauty advice, you’ll have gorgeous, no-smudge makeup all evening long. Just because you don’t want to outshine the bride doesn’t mean that you can’t look fabulous.

1. Fake It
Weddings are celebrations, so what better time to ramp up your look with lush false lashes? They’re affordable — I use the $2 kind from the drugstore.
If you feel like the look is too bold, cut the strip in half with small scissors and apply them on the outer corners of the eye. Or apply a few individual lashes. Grasp them in tweezers, dip them in glue and stick them on the lash line. If you’re a newbie, I recommend using the white glue, which dries clear. And have some tissues on hand to wipe away the excess.
Still can’t manage it? If you buy the lashes at a makeup store, such as Sephora or Mac, a makeup artist will usually apply them for you free of charge.

2. Get A Little Glimmer
The secret to celebrities’ glow: iridescent lotion.
To create the look, mix your foundation with a little shimmery lotion. Then dust your entire face with a translucent powder, which will set your makeup without covering up that gorgeous sheen.

3. Go For The Gold (Or Silver)
Nothing makes a glamorous statement like silver or gold eye shadow.
When I work with celebs for red-carpet events, I wet my eye shadow brush before dipping it into the shadow. And instead of swiping it across the lid, I pat the brush into the skin. This helps set the shadow into the skin so it won’t budge. It also creates a wet, shiny look that’s perfect for evening events.
If you want a subtle look, apply light-colored shadow with a little sparkle in it to the inner corners of the eyes. This opens up your eyes and makes them look bigger.
4. Be A Bronzed Beauty
You can go from pasty to perfect with one application of bronzer gel. Adding a fake tan will also create the illusion of looking leaner.
One of the most common beauty blunders is not blending your makeup into the neck, which creates an unsightly line. Make sure that you blend your face makeup into the bronzer so you’re the same color all over.
5. Don’t Forget To Touch Up
To stay fabulous, freshen up your make-up a few times throughout the night. I recommend packing travel-size versions of the following items:
A pack of tissues. Use them to wipe away smears and blot your lipstick.
Powder. Use one that’s a shade lighter than your skin and blot it on sparingly. This will keep your complexion from looking muddy.
Cream stick blush. This formulation has staying power, and the small tube is easier to tote than a powder compact.
Teasing comb. To keep your hair from falling flat, take a handful of hair at your crown and back-comb it. Flip your head upside down and spray it with hairspray — you’ll score instant oomph!
