The moment you lock eyes with your significant other at the altar is something you’ll remember for the rest of your lives. While everyone is looking at you, your eyes are fixated on your soon-to-be partner, and, for a moment, it’s like you’re the only two people in the room. Your wedding eye makeup look is an important piece of that vision, one that will soon be a cherished lifelong memory.
For the brown-eyed beauties out there, you’re in luck. Brown eyes can pull off just about any eye look, from the most dramatic to the most demure. But being spoiled for choice doesn’t necessarily make the process easier. If you’re not sure what look to go for, take a cue from the professionals and use your eye color as a guide.
“I suggest sticking to something that is comfortable and authentic for every bride—the wedding day isn’t necessarily the time to try a new trendy or bold makeup style,” says makeup artist Alexandria Gilleo. “For your wedding, you want to stick to a classic, beautiful makeup look that will be forever seen as timeless and radiant when looking back on your photos. Take into consideration the time of year, your dress, the overall style you are going for, and have clear communication with your bridal makeup artist on how to best achieve your beauty goals.”
