    Bridal Eye Makeup Tips

    Right Color for Eyes

    There are a few things to consider when choosing what eye shadow colors to wear on your big day. They have to suit your skintone, go well with your dress, bouquet and everything else you chose for your wedding. You also have to feel comfortable in it, but avoid trends or wearing too much makeup. Remember that you will have to look at your wedding pictures for the rest of your life so it doesn’t matter whether a certain look or color is in at the moment, you want to opt for something classy and timeless that will look beautiful in the years to come as well. Simple and natural looks would be best but if you love colorful makeup like me, you can always use some soft pink or gold on your eyes (or you can opt for a bright lipstick instead).

    Makeup Artist

    I don’t think there is anything wrong with doing your makeup yourself, but unless you’re knowledgeable about bridal makeup and how looks photograph, it’s best to hire a makeup artist for a wedding. That’s because bridal makeup is different from everyday makeup. On your big day, makeup needs to be waterproof and tear-proof so your face won’t look like a big mess if you shed a few tears. In addition, your makeup should look good both in the flesh and in pictures. A professional makeup artist knows how textures and product turn out in photos and will make sure you won’t look greasy, shiny or bad in them too.

    Apply Waterproof Eye Makeup

    It goes without saying that you want your eye makeup to be entirely waterproof. Yet if you don’t think you’ll cry probability are your eyes will get a bit damp and misty. You don’t want to risk walking down the passageway with eye makeup running down your face.

    Eyeshadow Primer

    An eyeshadow primer is mandatory on your wedding day. You don’t want spend time to make your eyes look beautiful only to find out a few hours later that the eyeshadows have creased, the eyeliner smudged and everything is fading away. Your makeup needs to stay put and perfect for the entire day and a makeup primer will help you achieve just that.

    False Lashes

    Although a full set of lashes doesn’t appeal to everyone, having some additional ‘oomph’ in the lash department is essential for a formal bridal eye makeup look. If you can’t do at a full set, then a couple of well-placed individual lashes as the outer corner of the eye will widen and give a more dramatic make-up look.

    If these points are taken into consideration, then bridal eye makeup can really be the centerpiece of the bridal look-creating not only a beautiful bride in the flesh, but a beautiful bride in the flash-and seeing as though you will be looking at the pictures for years to come, both are equally important.

    Eyebrows

    Often overlooked, eyebrows frame the face and make you look polished. Doesn’t matter how good the rest of your makeup is, neglecting your eyebrows will ruin the overall look. If you’ve never done anything to your brows before, I strongly suggest you to book an appointment to have them done professionally. An esthetician will be able to find the perfect shape for you and explain how to take care of them. If you decide to have them waxed or threaded, go at least a week before you wedding, which will give the redness time to subside and go away in time for your big day. If you have sparse brows, fill them in with an eyeshadow that matches their color exactly. You can also use an eyebrow pencil to do the job, but powders usually look more natural.

    Try Several Looks

    Are you unsure about what makeup to wear on your big day? Try several looks in the months or weeks before your wedding so you can decide which one you like the most and better suits you and the overall theme of your wedding. If youíve decided to hire a makeup artist, always do one or more test runs with her. That way you can tell her exactly what you want, or if you donít she/he can offer some valuable advice. In addition, by doing test runs, you will also find out how long a look lasts on you, replace products that turn out to smudge or fade soon on you and see if any of the items used on your face causes an irritation or allergy.

    Donít try with New Makeup Products

    Whatever look you decide to wear, donít use any new makeup (or skincare for that matter) product that youíve never used before on your wedding day or even a few days before it. There is always the risk, albeit small, that a new product may cause an irritation and make your eyes all red and swollen. Trying new products a few weeks in advance will make sure that even if a bad reaction occurs, youíll have plenty of time to treat it.

    Mascara is Waterproof

    Start by curling your eyelashes and then apply two generous coats of mascara. Make sure that the mascara you are using is smudgeproof and waterproof so that it wonít travel everywhere on your face and ruin your makeup if you cry or the weather is too hot and humid. As with all the other products, test the mascara well in advance. It doesnít matter if the mascara claims to be waterproof, thatís not guaranteed that itíll withstand tears and humidity and you donít wanna find out it doesnít fulfill its promises on your wedding day, do you?

    Shimmer Eyeshadows

    Even though I adore shimmery eyeshadows and the way they make my eyes sparkles, they arenít ideal to wear on your wedding. Shimmery eyeshadows, especially those that are very frosty, can look very greasy and shiny in photos. And you donít want that, do you? Instead opt for matte shades as those are the ones that photograph best. But if you still insist on wearing some shimmer on your eyes, then apply a white or peach eyeshadow with only a hint of shimmer on your browbone to illuminate the eyes and use a matte shade on your crease as this will add more dimension and definition to your eyes. And remember to blend well as any harsh lines or mistakes will be visible in pictures.

    Re: Bridal Eye Makeup Tips

    After applying the eye makeup look, take some of the same highlight colour as used on the brow bone and dab it into the center of the eyelid.One of the most popular eye makeup looks is the smoky eye. You can see this on the big screen and in magazines.
