Going for gold
“You can ensure eyes will look big by using gold on the eyelid,” says celebrity makeup artist Cheryl Gushue. “Gold is great for hazel, green and brown eyes. Then, skip the liner. Curl your lashes and put on piles of mascara.”
“Keep lips neutral, but not too pale or they will look pasty. Fresh lips can start with a natural pinky tone.”
For glowing skin, Cheryl says the trick is to mix loose shimmer powder with foundation. Apply to your upper cheek and brow bone. “You don’t want the whole face to be glowy.
“Fresh, glowing skin and strong cheekbones are ideal for wedding photos.”

Silver is a great eyelid addition for women with pale skin tones or who suit cool colours. An example would be a bride with dark hair and blue eyes. Cheryl contoured under the cheekbones with a matte bronzer a couple of shades darker than the natural skin tone. “Apply blush to your cheek and then highlighter on top of your cheekbone in a pearly or champagne shade and sweep it up to the brow bone,” she says. Use liquid liner to extend the eye and bring out the lash lines.
