Tips for Wedding Eye Makeup

Posted on

Wedding eye makeup is not only about shadow and liner. It begins from a good foundation, like the whole bridal look itself. For longer enduring wedding makeup, a clear canvas, foundation or ideally wedding eye makeup primer should be applied to the entire of the lid. This will give something for the shadows and liner to stick to, and give extra durable power. Airbrushing a base for the eyes is another great way to acquire a flawless base. Airbrushing the entire foundation for bridal makeup is much suggested.

Wedding makeup is all about having good look in the flesh, and in photographs. For the photographs, the use of makeup requires being heavier than normal, but this doesn’t have to mean looking overdone. There are actually three main areas that require extra attention. They are brow bone, middle lid, and inner corner of the eye. These are the areas that necessitate catching the light, and if done properly, will make eyes look defined, multi-dimensional and shining in pictures, and certainly in the flesh.

For the brow, you have to choose a highlight color that is reflective, but not glittery. A good pearl white or cream is wonderful. The highlight doesn’t require going along the whole brow bone. It just requires going in the area directly below the arch of the brow-this will draw the light to that area, making the brows look more defined, and giving the face dimension.

And for the middle lid, after you have applied the eye makeup look, then take some of the same highlight color as used on the brow bone and dab it into the center of the eyelid. This will not be completely noticeable to the eye, but the reflective pearlescent particles will catch the light in a photo and create the eyes look wider and brighter.

When focus on the inner corner of the eye, you can apply the same highlight color again, dab it into the inner corner of the eye, over the tear duct. This can be blended a little along the bottom lash line as well. This touch gives glow to the look, and gives a fresh feeling to the eyes. In photographs this will also counter any tendency for eyes to disappear into a dimensionless shape, as the points of reflective material at the three key areas will catch the light and bring the eyes alive.

If you take these points into your consideration, then wedding eye makeup can really be the centerpiece of your look that will create not only a beautiful look in the flesh, but a beautiful look in the flash. And it is seen as though you will be looking at the pictures for years to come, both are similarly vital.
