Hollywood and weddings are a match made in heaven.
This classic Hollywood style makeup looks elegant, glamorous and polished. A touch of glitter in the corner of your eyes, will add sparkle. Team this dramatic look with soft lips and a bronze blush.
2. SILVER EYE MAKEUP + SOFT PINK LIPS
Contour! Contour! This will be your perfect word!
Contouring is a way to show off your face, enhance your cheek and look flawless. If you are thinking of going heavy on the eye makeup, go soft with your lip colour. Silver eye makeup looks stunning and highlights your eyes. Take a soft shade of pink for your lips to complement the silver. Also make sure you have impeccably groomed brows.
3. PINK AND ROSE GOLD EYES
Pink and rose gold are an amazing match.
You want to feel extra special on your big day and with rose gold eye makeup, you definitely will. Rose gold adds shimmer and with pink blended in too, it will match your lip colour and maybe even the theme of your wedding!
4. SMOKEY WINGED EYELINER
Smokey eyes are sexy.
Many girls have smokey eyes for their daily makeup and when you have to decide on your bridal makeup, you don’t want to feel uncomfortable and bare. You will compare your bridal makeup to your daily makeup and you will feel less special, so you might as well go for a look you love and are familiar with. Go for a smokey winged eyeliner look to create the intensity. Add false lashes to add to the look. Team with a little dash of glitter. Add a subtle touch of dark eyeshadow to underneath your eyes.
5. SPARKLY & SMOKEY EYE MAKEUP LOOK
If you are having a sparkle themed wedding, and are looking to incorporate this into your makeup, this one is for you.
This looks striking but with subtle colours. The smokey-eyed effect creates a softer blended look for the upper eyelids.
6. GOLD GLITTER EYES
There is no need to wear jewellery when you have gold makeup! Unless you want to wear your jewellery, it will team your makeup. Glitter can make us feel glamorous and goddess like. These are feelings we need on our wedding day. Make your eyes shine with this striking gold glitter.
7. SOFT & NEUTRAL MAKEUP LOOK
Soak up the sun with this style at your spring or summer wedding.
Many brides opt for a natural makeup look. Soft colours with neutral tones are ideal for brides. Rosy lips, shimmering cheeks all add to the fresh look.
8. CUT CREASE
Cut crease is becoming increasing popular.
Kim Kardashian has made this makeup technique as popular as ever. It has been around for many moons but it’s trending now. To achieve this cut crease style, use a spoon to ensure you have the outcome you need. Add a shimmering champagne eyeshadow that looks divine and blend with a dark purple and peachy colour.
9. SOFT BROWN EYES + NEUTRAL LIPS
Let your natural beauty speak for itself.
Brown has a softer look over black. Black can often be too harsh so for a softer appearance, go for a brown eyeshadow and lightly apply to your eyelids. Team with a nude lip colour.
10. SOFT, GLITTERY GLAM
Adding glitter on your wedding day can be that subtle extra lift you need.
This soft, glittery eyeshadow looks delicate and sparkles. No need to add big false eyelashes as you need to stick to the softer presence. Apply a light coat of mascara for the finishing touches.
