Elle Fanning shows us just how sweet a makeup look can be, Olivia Munn takes things down a moody path, and Blake Lively offers a classic take to glamour. Take inspiration from them for your own wedding beauty with the tips below!

Elle Fanning at the New York Special Screening of The Neon Demon: If your idea of perfect bridal makeup is as feminine and sweet as lace and bows, look no further than Elle Fanning's glowy, pink look. To achieve the look, prep your face with radiance-boosting primer, then even out your skin tone with a light coverage foundation. Keep your brows natural, simply brushing through them and filling in any sparse places (a very youthful look), and use a rose gold or champagne-colored eyeshadow all over your eyelids. A few coats of mascara on the top and bottom lashes, and the eyes are complete. Next, use a highlighter to accentuate your natural glow, hitting all the high points of the face, and use a bright pink cream blush all over your cheeks. Finish the look with a bright pink lip stain covering the lips thoroughly but not too precisely, so you have that easy 'popsicle stained' effect.

Olivia Munn at the 42nd Annual Saturn Awards: Play up all your features and give your bridal beauty some edge by emulating Olivia Munn's moody red carpet look. First prime the skin, and then use a light-coverage foundation with mica or other glow enhancers in it — that way your skin glows, but doesn't get oily throughout the day. Next, contour your cheekbones with a coral-hued bronzer, and highlight under your eyes and down the center of your face. For the eyes, use a gray kohl eyeliner and line the upper lashes, then smudge it into place under the lower lashline. Next take a copper-colored eyeshadow, and apply it to your upper lid — blend it directly over the gray liner under your lower lashes. Finally, apply a few coats of mascara to the upper lashes only. Complete the look by using a matching raspberry lip liner and lipstick for a bold shock of color.

Blake Lively at the world premiere of The Shallows: If it's classic glam you want for your big day, it's no surprise that Blake Lively is just the lady to show us how it's done. Start by using a full coverage foundation, and then contour the face using highlighter and bronzer. Add an additional pop of coral blush right on the apples of the cheeks. Brush through your brows and fill them in with a pencil or powder that matches your natural hair color. Create a classic brown smokey eye using a palette of brown shadows, and a brown eyeliner. Apply a strip of false lashes and follow that with mascara on the upper and lower lashes. Pop some highlighter in the inner corners of your eyes and swipe on a glossy pink lip, and your wedding day makeup look will stand the test of time.
