Here comes the... WHAT, WHO IS THAT AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH MY WIFE (TO BE?)
What makeup look you decide to have on your wedding day is absolutely imperative. I mean after all.. it's your face. So, I compiled 3 of my absolute favourite bridal eye-makeup looks that suit ANY bold lip if you so desire.
Ps: You'll notice most of these look's are created with individual lashes to accentuate the look.
1. THE SUBTLE CAT EYE

The thought of a cat eye may seem scary to the 'no-makeup' wearing bride-to-be's, but is one of the more subtle techniques. This look is created with a gel liner or creme shadow smoked out with an angled brush to create the cat eye, defining the crease with a neutral/not too dark shadow and highlighting certain where necessary.
Using a gel liner/creme shadow creates a soft, blurring effect making your eyes look a little more mysterious and romantic, rather than using liquid liner, which creates more of a sharp, pin-up appeal.
Recommended eye shape: Most eye shapes will rock this, but especially those with larger eyelids/deep set eyes.
2. THE HALO EYE

SUN-KISSED. BRONZEY. SULTRY. SMOKEY. COOL. OKAY YEP. THE HALO EYE IS MY JAM.
WHAT IS IT?
It's essentially a halo of eye-shadow around your eye, using warm browns or cool browns to compliment your complexion.
This is my personal go-to eye look for myself, I usually use just one bricky-y coloured shadow, then smokey it around my eyes to make my blue eyes POP, and intensified in my crease to define my eye shape. To make the look go from grunge to insta baddie, I use a highlighter in the inner corner, brow bone and centre of the lid.
3. THE HALO UNDER-WING EYE

This look is essentially a combination of a 'halo eye' and 'cat eye'.
I don't know the technical name, but in the meantime, I'm gonna call it the 'Halo Under-Wing' and guess what? Kylie ABSOLUTELY nails it.
A neutral shadow is blended upwards into the brow bone, giving the eyes a lift, then a darker shadow is blended is a subtle cat eye fashion, towards the edge of the eye, blending upwards.
A CLOSER LOOK
It's so subtle, and intensity is up to the bride.
If you want to rock a bold lip I would keep away from dark browns or intense colours, if you're going nude and blushy all over then crank up the intensity!
This eye look is SO underrated.
So there you have it!
These are my go to looks for brides, they are so flattering and timeless.
