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.
