Eyes are easily the most noticeable and attractive part of your face. Like the poets say, eyes are the gateway to our soul and reflect personal style. For years, brides have been experimenting and trying out new bridal eye makeup looks. There are a lot of options to choose from, whether it’s a traditional brown smokey eye, or something nude and minimalist. You can go for colored lenses, thick eyelashes, bold brows and what not. The list goes on and on!
But figuring out your eye shape is important to bring out the best of your eye looks. Like creating an outspread outer V can spruce up round eyes with a wider, elongated look, while down-turned eyes can be offset well with a skybound wing liner. Lighter eye shades and highlighted inner corners help lift smaller eyes while smudged looks can sensationalize narrow ones. This makeup concoction can also easily be personalised according to your facial features, outfit colour, skin tone and even eye color.
Ultimately, there are endless ways to nail those perfect bridal eye makeup looks and WedAbout has curated some of the best ones we spotted lately and a wide range of eye makeup styles that you can pick for your big day.
