Makeup is an art, there is no denying it. But you can make this art a little more attainable by keeping a couple tips in mind. One such way to demystify the art of makeup is to take eye color into account. Certain techniques complement certain eye colors, so by familiarizing yourself with the ones catered best to your eye color, you immediately increase your chances at a beautiful wedding makeup look!
Wedding makeup for brown eyes:
1. Apply transitional color to crease
The transitional color is perhaps the most important color for your whole wedding makeup look. Select a brown eye shadow with a red undertone. You will apply it on the crease as a transitional color.
2. Intensify with dark color on outer corners
Use a dark brown eye shadow on the outer corners of your eyes to produce intensity.
3. Put ivory on inner corners and brow bone
Use an ivory tone for the inner corners of your eyes and brow bone. This light color will open up the eye and make the whole look brighter.
4. Apply metallic color in center of eyes
Find a metallic for the center of your eyes. This eye shadow can be any metallic color, just make sure it’s opaque and preferably anything with a yellow or champagne undertone.
At this point, you have applied all your eye shadow and just need to blend the shades together.
6. Apply eye liner to lower rim
Apply a redish-nrown eye liner on outer corners of your eyes, both to the inner rim and bottom lash line.
7. Apply eye liner to top
A black eye liner will again serve as an intensifier, making the whole look pop. Use this eye liner on the upper rim and to the top of your eyelid.
8. Use tons of mascara
Apply several coats of black mascara to both top and bottom lashes. False eye lashes are optional, but effective.
Wedding makeup for blue eyes:
1. Cover entire lid with complementary color
Select a color opposite from blue on the color wheel, or any bronze, brown, or navy blue. Apply to the entire eye lid up the the crease.
2. Apply transition color to crease
Select a brown color with a red, maroon, or plum undertone. Use windshield wiper motions to put this color in the crease of your eye.
3. Apply transition color below eye
Use that same transition color and apply to the bottom of eye. Stick to the outer eye, about a third of the way in.
4. Use the original color on the rest of the bottom
For the other two thirds of the bottom of the eye, use the original color.
5. Highlight the inner corners
Make your eyes pop even more by place a pale yellow color in the inner corner of each.
6. Apply eye liner
Use a dark brown eye liner for both the top and the bottom of your eyes.
7. Apply mascara
Opt for a black mascara over a brown one, as the contrast will make your eyes pop even more.
Wedding makeup for green eyes:
1. Work a light brown into crease
Set a base color on your eyes with a matte brown color along the crease of each eye.
2. Highlight brow bone
Use a bright white color along the bottom of the eyebrow.
3. Use coppery color on lower lid
Pack this eye shadow color on the entire lid below the crease. Also, smudge this color on the lower lash line.
4. Apply eye liner
Select a dark purple eye liner and create a winged look. This hue will appropriately contrast the color of your eyes.
5. Use eye liner pencil in water line
Select a black eye liner pencil and apply to the waterline. This step helps to further open up the eyes, particularly for larger eyes.
6. Apply mascara
Generously apply mascara to the eye lashes. Add false eye lashes if you so desire.
