Bridal Eye makeup is more than just about shadow and liner-it starts from a good foundation, like the wholeBridallook itself. For longer lastingmakeup, and a clear canvas, foundation or ideallyEyemakeupprimer should be applied to the whole of the lid-this will give something for the shadows and liner to stick to, and give extra lasting power.
Airbrushing a base for theEyesis another great way to get a flawless base-in fact airbrushing the entire foundation forBridalEyemakeupis highly recommended.BridalEyemakeupis all about looking good in the flesh, and in photographs. For the photographs, the application ofmakeupneeds to be heavier than normal, but this doesn’t have to mean looking overdone.
There are three main area that need extra attention-the brow bone, middle lid, and inner corner of theEye-these are the areas that need to catch the light, and if done correctly, will makeEyes look defined, multi-dimensional and shining in pictures, and of course in the flesh.After applying theBridalEyemakeuplook, take some of the same highlight color as used on the brow bone and dab it into the center of theEyelid.
This will not be totally visible to theEye, but the reflective pearlescent particles will catch the light in a photo and make theEyelook wider and brighter.Using the same highlight color again, dab it into the inner corner of theEye, over the tear duct. This can be blended a little along the bottom lash line as well.
In photographs this will also counter any tendency forEyesto disappear into a dimensionless shape, as the points of reflective material at the three key areas will catch the light and bring theEyesalive.Although a full set of lashes doesn’t appeal to everyone, having some additional ‘oomph’ in the lash department is essential for a formalBridalEyemakeuplook.
If you can’t do at a full set, then a couple of well-placed individual lashes as the outer corner of theEyewill widen and give a more dramatic make-up look.If these points are taken into consideration, thenBridalEyemakeupcan really be the centerpiece of theBridallook-creating not only a beautiful bride in the flesh, but a beautiful bride in the flash-and seeing as though you will be looking at the pictures for years to come, both are equally important.
