Kate Beckinsale gets glowing, Eva Longoria exercises her right to lashes, and Elizabeth Olsen is understated and stunning.

Kate Beckinsale at the Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2017 Cruise Collection Show: If it's a gorgeous, glowing effect you want for your wedding day makeup, check out this stunning look on Kate Beckinsale. Skin is perfected with a full coverage foundation, and warmed up with pink blush. Get that luminous finish with plenty of highlighter along the high points of the face, and use a shimmery light pink gloss. On the eyes, use a bronze and brown eyeshadow palette using the darkest shade on the outer corners of the eyes and in the crease. Use a metallic bronze hue on the upper eyelid and under the lower lashes from the middle of the eye to the inner corners. Put a touch of highlighter in the inner corners to keep the look bright, swipe on a little mascara, and you're done.

Eva Longoria at the Los Angeles Film Festival Premiere of 'Lowriders':
If it's full, bat-worthy eyelashes you love, Eva Longoria is always serving major inspo. To recreate her look, start with a full coverage foundation. Then, highlight and contour, making sure you put plenty of highlighter along the bridge of the nose. Shape and fill your brows to get precise lines, and then start on the eyes. Tightline the upper and lower lashlines with a black kohl pencil and apply several coats of mascara before applying a strip of long, dramatic faux lashes to the upper lashes. Use a palette of gray eyeshadows to create a smokey eye, focusing the darkest shade in the outer corners and underneath the lower lashes. To finish things off, line your lips with a nude pencil and then swipe over a nude-colored gloss.

Elizabeth Olsen at the Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2017 Cruise Collection Show: If you typically don't wear a lot of makeup, but want to add a little bit of edge and glamour to your nuptials, try this makeup look modeled by Elizabeth Olsen. Use a light coverage foundation or BB Cream to let your natural skintone and radiance show through. Add just a touch of bronzer (choose a shade just one or two shades darker than your skin) along your cheekbones and brush through your eyebrows, filling in any sparse places lightly. Swipe a light bronze eyeshadow on your eyelids and right below the lower lashline, and apply two coats of mascara. Finally, use a glossy mauve lipstick and enjoy your subtle approach to glamour.
