I think one of the most important things is to have beautiful eyes for your wedding. It will express your style even more romantic, exotic, sexy or classic. It’s really amazing what make up can do. For example, with wedding make up you can make small eyes look bigger, change the shape of the eyes or make your eye colour stand out more.
What colour should I use?
Many women find it difficult to know what colours to choose for their wedding make up. The best way to make your eyes stand out, is to choose the contrast color of your eye colour. For blue eyes, different shades of brown, golden and silver colours and beige are very pretty. For green eyes I would recommend shades of pink, purple and rusty tones. Try it, it looks really nice. Then again, for brown eyes I must say almost every colour works. You can mix and match the colours as much as you want, personally I usually use at least 3 colours together. One lighter colour, one mid tone and one darker tone for contrast and conturing the eye.
As you see, there are lots of colours that matches for you wedding and that’s another good reason to always do a trial before your wedding day to try what color scales will suit you best and moreover what you feel most comfortable in.
Glitter or matte for your wedding?
Often I get the question if one should use glitter or matte colours for the wedding make up. I would say for the photos, matte looks best but adding a little sparkle. Too much glitter can reflect too much from the flash. Something I use on almost every bride is false eylashes it makes the eyes stand out even more and goes so well with any wedding style and for the photos it looks amazing! You can either have full strip lashes (there are lots of different varieties) or you can use individual lashes that usually is just being applied on the outer corners of the eye. For example, if you have round eyes and want more of an almond shape, or if you are after a vintage look these lashes looks the best.
