For this fresh, radiant look, local makeup artist Erin Ashley focused on the bride's eyes by contouring shadows and finishing with a sleek dark liner and false lashes. Here, Erin shares her pro tips on how master gel liner.

-Use a thin angle brush to pick up some gel liner and apply it to the waterline and along the upper and lower lash lines.

-Smudge the liner with a bullet brush, then apply MAC shadow to the lower lash line with the same brush.

-Apply false lashes such as Andrea #33 to complete the look.
