I have a lot to say here, but my colleagues below address many of the most important topics, so I’ll keep my advice to coloring.
Think soft, springy and sweet. Rosy peaches and soft mauves are always flattering — go for your natural color but two shades brighter. For the perfect blush application, smile and focus on the round apples of the cheeks.
Apply a soft, champagne tone all over the eye. This is classic and elegant, and works for all skin tones. You can also highlight cheeks and brow bones with this color, but make sure to go for a satin finish rather than a glittery one. Too much sparkle on a bride can be distracting. Line the eyes with black, buffed out for softness and use several coats of black waterproof mascara.
Give your hair and makeup a couple of test runs and take digital pics. Have a friend or two help you and give honest feedback. You want to look your very best. Remember that you will likely be nervous on the big day, so give yourself plenty of time and a relaxing place to sit.
