Lauren Conrad at the 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards:
By ditching her signature winged eyeliner look, Lauren Conrad makes a big impact with a beauty look that is perfect for the bride who's planning a formal affair. First, even out the complexion with a matte, full coverage foundation. Then, apply a bright pink cream blush directly to the apples of the cheeks to add a level of sweetness to this otherwise sophisticated look. For the eyes, line from the middle to the outer corners of the upper and lower lash lines and apply several coats of mascara. Apply a highlighter to the inner corners and under the eyes slightly to keep the look bright instead of vampy. Define the brows heavily, but use a pencil or powder, so they maintain a natural look. Finish things off with a dark raspberry lipstick, and prepare to wow!

Ciara at the 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards:
For a radiant look that puts your complexion center stage, take your cues from Ciara. To give your skin some added luminosity, blend a radiance boosting oil into your foundation and apply them together using a beauty sponge. Add a touch more warmth and glow by contouring and highlighting with shades just one color darker (contour) and lighter (highlight) than your natural skin tone. Brush and fill in your brows, and apply a strip of faux lashes that are long and wispy. Smudge some gold eyeshadow at the upper and lower lash lines and complete the look with a pink matte lipstick that matches your natural lip color as closely as possible.

Emmanuelle Chriqui at the ELLE Magazine Women in Comedy Event:
If you want an effortlessly glamorous look, emulate Emmanuelle Chriqui's makeup. After using a lightweight foundation, add a touch of coral blush along your cheekbones. Then, highlight down the center of your face and the apples of the cheeks (overlapping the blush is just fine). Brush and fill any sparse places in your brows and line the upper lashline with liquid liner. Apply quite a few coats of mascara and add a bit of shimmering white or champagne-colored eyeshadow in the inner corners of the eyes, extending it slightly up into both lashlines. For the lips, line and fill with a bright berry lip liner and matching glossy lipstick. Voila! That easy bridal beauty is yours.
