Neon eyeshadow might be too bright, and a black smokey eye will smudge down your cheek before the reception, but a swipe of turquoise glitter liner — as seen on writer/director Janet Mock — makes a tasteful beauty statement that will stay put all night long.
No matter how many personalities you have in the bridal party, there are two things everyone can agree on: bold, feathered brows and a good nude lip.
Even if you're not dressed to the nines — in bright-pink feathers and Tiffany jewels — you can match Kendall Jenner's dreamy makeup look for your friend's September wedding. All you need is a liquid liner, a neutral shadow, a pink lip gloss, plus a cool, messy updo.
If your dress is any shade close to lavender, consider a blurred eggplant shadow à la Gemma Chan.

And if cherry-red lipstick isn't your style, a deep-rose balm or stain (like Natalia Vodianova's) feels just as sexy, without making a huge statement.
A thick wing of black eyeliner feels edgy, but still keeps with the romantic wedding vibes when paired with a nude lip and a hair bow.
When the bride is going fresh-faced on her wedding day, your look can also be au naturale — just make sure to follow a strict pre-wedding skin-care regimen.
For a bridesmaid look that will last through several champagne toasts and multiple trips to the dessert table, take a note from Yara Shahidi. Makeup artist Emily Cheng used Bobbi Brown's Luxe Matte lipstick in Burnt Cherry to get this rose-mauve look.
If your hair is pulled back into a tight updo, the focus is all on your makeup. Try going for something soft, like a peach lipstick and a bronze eyeshadow, as seen on the stunning Kate Bosworth.
