Natalie Portman 

The Look: "Palette of neutral shades of color"

Perfect for: "The sexy bride."

Get the look: "This look is for the bride who is not afraid of makeup. It's 'the works' done the right way and using the right palette. The brows are perfectly groomed, which is such an important step for a bride since brows frame your face. On the eyes, use a plum liner on the inner top and bottom lids, and remember this is a real smoky eye with plum shades so use it on both the top and bottom. Apply lots of mascara to the top and bottom lash lines. On the face, apply bronzer and layer with a blush in a plum/mauve tone. Finish lips with a pale sheer gloss."
