Here are some classic bridal eye makeup looks for any season:

Romantic: The look for romance is all about a soft approach.  Matte, velvet or satin textures create a soft romantic look.  Choose soft pinks, peaches, plums, taupe, burgundies, browns or grays for eyes.

The eyes: Start with a highlight in a soft matte or beige satin for your brow bone.  Contour the crease by using a soft pink-beige or taupe from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eye.  On the eyelid you could use a burgundy, brown or soft gray as the main color in a satin texture to give a little shimmer to the eye.  For eyeliner use a dark brown, deep plum or dark charcoal gray.  These colors give a sweet innocence to the eye.

Cheeks: Smash box bronzer in “Warm Beige”

Classic Vintage:  A vintage look has gained more and more popularity amongst brides-to-be.  A vintage look is a great look for beginners.  If you want to advance it to the next level, add a small cat eye to add a retro look.  For those who love old Hollywood glam this is the look for for you!


The eyes:  Start with a highlight tone for your brow bone in a light champagne or gold shimmer color. For crease color, contour with a soft peach or charcoal brown and define the crease well, by using a large blending brush like MAC cosmetic’s #227 brush.  For the eyelids you could use the same highlight color like a champagne or opt for a matte natural beige tone on the eyelids.

Eyeliner:  For beginners you could use a gel based liner with an angled brush to add a slight cat eye eyeliner and for advanced use a liquid pen.  Usually gel liners are water proof and not all liquid pens are water proof.  For weddings you want to consider water proof, water proof, water proof products!

Blush: Nars blush in” Dusty Rose”

Lip: To complete the look a matte red lip is the key to the Hollywood glam.  We like MAC’s” Ruby Woo”, a perfect matte red lipstick.

Beach Babe Goddess  Getting married on the beach or just inspired by the beach? Here’s a simple way to design a makeup look perfect for any beach babe goddess!

The eyes: On the brow bone for highlight use a sheer bronzed gold shimmer.  For the crease colors a copper, bronze, taupe or caramel will create depth from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eyes.  Pop the eyes with a bright gold or rose gold for the eyelids.  Use a rich brown waterproof pencil for the top and bottom eyeliner or a gel based liner with an angled brush for a more precise line.  To open up the eyes just on the inner corner of the eyes, highlight with a light shimmer beige using a pencil brush.

Cheeks: “Gold Deposit” from MAC Cosmetics.

Lips: Nude glossy lips, Try Kissable Couture “Innocence/ Creme Brulee”
