Wedding Hair and Makeup Ideas from Celebrities

Hairstylists and makeup artists discuss the celebrity styles that brides are requesting for their wedding day, and how they tweak those (sometimes insanely over-the-top) looks for a "real world" wedding.

Natalie Portman
Your makeup artist thinks: Classic, natural, understated makeup

"I think a lot of brides like Natalie's style because at special events she just looks like an enhanced version of her everyday self," says DC makeup artist Carl Ray. "To re-create her look for a bride, I start with a tinted moisturizer, play up the eyes with soft brown eyeshadow, individual faux lashes, and lengthening mascara, and do a pinky-mauve lip. For an evening wedding, I might make the eye stronger; for a daytime wedding, I'd keep it soft."
