Jennifer Garner has a rosy outlook, Lupita Nyong'o embraces bright colors, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead pairs smoldering and romantic together.

Jennifer Garner at the premiere of Miracles from Heaven: Brides who love a rosy hue, but don't want to go overboard, can take a cue from Jennifer Garner's subtle pink makeup. For the eyes, begin with a kohl pencil and line the top and bottom. Then create a warm smokey effect with brown shadow on the upper lid and below the lower lashes. Next apply a warm pink shade above the crease at the base of the brow bone and blend. Use highlighter above and below your brows to accent them fully, a light pink, matte blush on the cheekbones, and light pink gloss on the lips to continue the rosy color trend.

Lupita Nyong'o at the opening night of Eclipsed: Go bold at your wedding, or rehearsal dinner, for a fun and modern twist on bridal beauty! Lupita Nyong'o shows us how: First line around the eyes to make them pop, and add an electric blue liner at the upper lash line. A liquid formula is best for creating a precise, bright line like this. Under the lower lashes, swipe a shimmery blue eyeshadow, to further accent the eyes, but not detract from the real star — the upper liner. Then, ignore that 'bold lips or eyes, but not both' rule and use a bright orangey-red lipstick for some additional "wow." For the skin, you can never go wrong with a luminous foundation that lets your skin show through.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead at the New York premiere of 10 Cloverfield Lane: Lest you think that a smoldering eye is only apropos for nighttime celebrations, check out Mary Elizabeth Winstead's lovely beauty look, which is perfect no matter what time of day you're saying "I do." For the eyes, tightline the upper and lower lash lines, and then wet an angled brush and apply a bright, midnight blue shadow right below the lower lashes — use more than one coat if needed to get the desired intensity. Dab a highlighter or a shimmery white shadow in the inner corner of the eyes and apply plenty of mascara to finish the effect. Then, by keeping the skin glowing and using baby pink on the lips and cheeks, you can give everything a light, romantic touch. Perfect for the springtime bride!
