Blue Eyes – Bridal Makeup Trends
Smokey Eyes; Often times looks best on blue eyes. Since the darker shadows and liners make the eye pop, it gives your face a very sexy/mysterious look. Also, the depth of your blue give makes the dark look softer. Instead of dark eyes on dark shadows, this can become beaty.
Shimmers; Since your eyes already sparkle by themselves you’ll want to be selective with shimmer shades. You’ll want to avoid sandy brown shimmers, as well as blues. The best shimmers for blue eyes would be, pink, oranges, dark yellow, purple, and reds.
However, since this is for your wedding day you’ll want to go with neutral shades. Golds are a great way to make your eyes pop. Use a warm burgundy in the crease and a light white in the inner corner.
Colors; Blue eyes stay away from blue colors. Matte colors look amazing against your eye color. So, don’t be afraid to go in with some way purples or flat yellows. Matte black is also gorgeous & a flat brown can look beautiful with some red lips.
Brown Eyes – Bridal Makeup Trends
Smokey Eyes; Most brides want to get that smokey look on their wedding day. However, with brown eyes you’ll want to keep the centers lighter. With brown eyes if you go to dark your eyes will blend in with your shadows, giving you a beaty eye look. Which, on your wedding day is not ideal.
Colors; The great thing about brown eyes is that you can pretty much pull off any color you want. Although green isn’t the ideal color for brown eyes, you wont have to worry about that on your wedding day.
Shimmers; Like colors, you can’t go wrong with shimmers. Since brown eyes pop less you can build them up using various shimmer techniques and styles. Use large glitter pencils to bring out the shape of your eyes, and light shimmers to bring a subtle glow to your face.
