Your No. 1 Makeup Trick for That Dreamy Wedding Day Glow
by Petra Guglielmetti, Glamour Magazine
So I have this board on Pinterest where I collect examples of perfect wedding makeup, and I suddenly realized that lots of these perfect wedding makeup photos have a certain something in common. Can you guess what it is?
Look at these examples, then see if you can guess the makeup trick that's helping make all of these ladies look so ethereal, glowy and wedding worthy.

One important detail these makeup looks have in common: a glint of pale shine at the inner corners of the eyes. Created with a light metallic shadow or liner, or some highlighter, this move not only brings light to the eye area for a look of wide-eyed charm, it also adds just a hint of fairy princess ethereal-ness to your makeup.
And actually, most of these makeup schemes also feature some shine on the bridge of the nose as well. That's not quite as intuitive as the eye shine — personally I always feel like making my nose totally matte. But as you can see here, putting a touch of strategic shine there completes that radiant-from-within feeling.
How many of you will have strategic eye-and-nose shine as part of your wedding makeup? What other makeup tricks do you think are especially useful for a wedding day look?
