by Stephanie Montes

Doing your own makeup for a special event can be a stress-inducing nightmare. That goes double when the festivities last several hours like at a wedding. The challenge is to apply makeup heavy enough to last all day but light enough so that you don’t look scary while the sun is still up. Not to worry. We’re taking the guesswork out of getting ready (and looking fab) by showing you how to achieve a daytime smoky eye that can be amped up once the hour gets late. Whether you’re the bride, a guest or just a woman with a packed social calendar, follow our lead and you won’t need a million products or a glam squad to look like a million bucks.
