All eyes on the bride! As you make your way down the aisle, let your eyes do the talking. Your wedding eye makeup look can be minimalist and simple or bold and glamorous, depending on your personal style. While the only two words coming out of your mouth should be “I do,” your eyes have the ability to convey countless emotions with just one look. But, what look should you choose?
When you’re looking at bridal beauty looks to inspire your own, the first thing you should consider is your eye color. Brides with blue eyes look best in neutral tones, like champagne and taupe, as well as coppers, corals, and bronze. Blue eyes stand out on their own, so you want to avoid overwhelming light eyes with dark eye shadow. Instead, enhance blue eyes with shimmery golds and cool-toned browns.
Looking for inspo? “When looking for bridal makeup inspiration, avoid using ‘bridal’ or ‘blue’ in the search, which can bring up outdated and overly made-up looks that aren’t fresh or modern,” advises makeup artist Tanya Bures. “Stick with words like ‘event makeup for light eyes,’ ‘red carpet makeup for light eyes,’ or ‘natural eyeshadow for light eyes.'”
