The third step implies the application of one or two coats of mascara, from lash roots to tips, in a zigzag movement. Do not use too much mascara for your lashes, otherwise, they will seem vulgar and loaded! For more intense look and for the effect of bigger eyes you should contour the interior of your lower eyelids with a white eyeliner pencil.
The fourth step, in getting the right day makeup for your wedding, is choosing a natural colour for your lips. Therefore, choose the colour of the pencil close to your lip contour. Then, start contouring your lips from the middle to the outside. After contouring, apply the same pencil over the entire lip, which will provide a good grip for the lipstick.
In the end, add a little colour on your cheeks with a suitable blush or with a tan powder. Finally, apply the lipstick with a lip brush for makeup and for a bit of shine, use a transparent gloss!
