Make sure your make-up 'pops' on your wedding day with a look that makes a statement in a subtle way.

1. Carrie Jessup of CLJ Make-Up

"My bride, Kelly, was inspired by the Old Hollywood sirens that were the epitome of glam and sophistication. A flawless base is key, so I smoothed out the skin with stick foundation and set into place with pressed powder. I then warmed the skin with just a touch of bronzer, followed by a pop of colour to the cheeks. To create a classic smokey eye, I kept the inner corners of the eyes nice and bright. I then shaded black shadow from the outer corners of the eye, blending towards the centre. I finished with a classic winged liner and individual lashes. This look wouldn't be complete without a bold red lip."

2. Sally Orchard of Orchard Make-Up and Beauty

"I used airbase foundation to give a flawless complexion. The eyeshadows were a selection of browns and a vanilla pigment by MAC. I used a gel liner from Illamasqua in black above and below the eye and slightly smoked it to create a wing. The false lashes, Whispies, were from Ardell. I finished with Bare Again by MAC on the lips."

3. Tricia D'Costa

"English bridal elegance: I started off with Eve Taylor of London skincare and followed with NARS Radiance Enhancing Face Primer. I blended Lancome Teint Idole 24hr Foundation 02+03 shades to match the bride's skin tone. For her eyes, I used Laura Geller Baked Eye Stripes in Cinnamon Strudel and applied a touch of Stila Moonlight eyeshadow to her inner eye. I finished her face with NARS Laguna Bronzer and NARS Blush in Orgasm. Finally, I added Lancome Rouge in Love 240m to her lips and a spritz of Urban Decays All Nighter make-up setting spray."

4. Charmaine Gittens

"Brides ask me if it would be a good idea to go for a bold lip on their wedding day. There is so much to think about: will the lip colour stay put, will it transfer onto or stain the dress? However, there are fabulous long-wear lipsticks out there giving you the freedom to rock a bright lip colour. I used MAC lip pencil in Ruby Woo and lip colour, Editorial Reds Palette in MAC Red."

5. Love Moi Makeup

"A statement red lip is a timeless bridal make-up look, especially when paired with flawless skin and dramatic winged eyeliner. Add fluffy, natural looking false lashes to frame the eyes, then try a matte Hollywood-red on the lips - ensure you use a lip liner to get a perfect outline. Keep eyeshadow natural, and blush subtle, and let your lips do the talking."

6. Gemma Martin

"To create this beautiful natural look I started by building up a soft, dewy yet flawless complexion with Illamasqua Skin Base. The eyes were emphasised with a brightening base and natural smoke (MAC's Blanc Type and Satin Taupe), a delicate eyeliner, lashings of mascara and natural brows. A pop of natural blush and subtle highlighting finished off with rose pink lips (MAC Please Me)."

7. Sian Sayer of Make Up by Sian

"This bridesmaid requested a neutral look that was fresh and glam. The false eyelashes and highlighted areas - achieved with Becca Cosmetics Champagne Pop - really enhance this. I used MAC full coverage foundation and Laura Mercier setting powder, before highlighting her cheekbones with NARS in Orgasm. For the eyes I used MAC shadows in Naked Lunch, All That Glitters, Texture, Soft Brown and Handwritten, with Bobbi Brown black gel liner to define."
