Wedding Makeup and Hairstyle Inspiration from Celebrities

Kim Kardashian
Your makeup artist thinks: Smoky eyes, glowing skin, pale lips

"Kim's trademark smoky eyes and nude lips can translate into 'bridal' as long as you're wearing the right colors for your skin tone," says Denver-based makeup artist Carissa Passerella of Carissa Beauty. "Dark shadows can appear too harsh on a fair bride, so for her I'll use brown shades; for a girl with olive skin like Kim's, gunmetal silvers will mimic her look pretty closely. For a bride with deeper skin tones, I love using rich, pigment-dense plums and burgundy shadows. And while Kim's lips appear nude on camera, she's actually wearing some color, so I use a neutral peach—or, for a dark-skinned bride, a medium pink."
