Here’s How Kaley Cuoco Achieved Her Fresh And Natural Wedding Day Makeup Look

Kaley's look is surprisingly affordable!

Over the weekend, “Big Bang Theory” actress Kaley Cuoco married professional equestrian Karl Cook surrounded by family, friends and their growing brood of animals.

Their romantic nuptials, which featured fabulous flowers, designer duds and even horses, may be out of reach for the rest of us (as her wedding planner showed):

However, the actress’ down-to-earth beauty look is as affordable as it is beautiful.

The best part is that you can get her look with affordable products — some you might already have on hand, and others are easy to find at drugstores, or Ulta and Sephora. Cuoco’s makeup artist, Jaime Greenberg, shared every step with People, from skin prep to finishing touches she used to create Cuoco’s wedding day glow:

Healthy complexion

Healthy, moisturized skin is key for lasting wedding day makeup, especially a natural look like Cuoco’s, Greenberg told People. She relied on SkynIceland’s HydraFirming Eye and Face Gels and La Mer moisturizer to prep the star’s skin. La Mer is definitely a luxe product — a 2-ounce jar goes for $325 — but you can do this at home with any creamy moisturizer.

Greenberg created a flawless complexion with Cover FX’s Blurring Primer and CoverFX Power Play Foundation. “The primer is fantastic because it keeps everything in place and takes down any unwanted shine,” she told People.

Then she made the star shine even brighter with Cover FX Rose Gold Custom Enhancer, and added a pop of color to cheeks with Cover FX 24K Gold and Rose Gold Highlighting Palette.

Bright Eyes

With skin covered, she went on to accentuate Cuoco’s big bright eyes. She curled her lashes, applied Burt’s Bees Nourishing Mascara (which is only $13!) and added trimmed Ardell demi lashes. She did one more application of the mascara after that, Greenberg told People.

Then, she defined her lash line with Burt’s Bees Nourishing Eyeliner Pencil in Soft Black and added a golden sparkle from Cover FX’s highlighting palette.

Natural Lips

After eyes, lips were another focal point. Greenberg used a trio of Burt’s Bees products.

She started by hydrating with Burt’s Bees All Weather SPF 15 Moisturizing Lip Balm. (Who doesn’t have at least one stashed away in a purse?) Next, she swiped Burt’s Bees Matte Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands followed by Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Niagara Nude on lips for a hint of custom color. The lip combo rings in at around $20.

Greenberg is clearly a fan of the brand: 

During the last few days, Cuoco has generously shared snaps of their gorgeous wedding. This horse even stole a kiss from the bride on her wedding day:

And the newlyweds looked like they had a blast:
