Weddings, there’s nothing like them. From the planning to the actualization, so much goes into your big day. While each and every wedding is completely unique, one thing that seems to be pretty neutral across the board for brides with blue eyes is their desire to look natural, only better through the enhancement of makeup. Since you’re likely already making so many decisions in preparing for your big day, we thought we’d take it upon ourselves to help out with step-by-step instructions for an easy makeup look for brides with blue eyes. While we can’t be there on your big day to do it for you, we can share the step-by-step technique for creating it yourself. Ready to test this blue-eye approved makeup look for yourself? Keep scrolling for the beauty equivalent of your rehearsal dinner—just make sure your makeup bag is stocked with plenty of eye shadow and mascara!
Wedding Makeup for Blue Eyes Tutorial
Follow our instructions below to take your wedding makeup to the next level. The bronze eye shadow shades will help complement your blue eyes so that they really stand out on your big day.
What you’ll need:
Fluffy eyeshadow brush
Tapered blending crease brush
Flat eyeshadow brush
L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quads in Because I’m Worth It
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Black
L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Waterproof Mascara
Get the look by following these simple steps:
Step 1: Prime your lids. The first step in your wedding makeup routine should be applying a little bit of eye makeup primer to your eyelids. Primer can help create a smooth base for the rest of your makeup application.
Step 2: Start with your second lightest color. Use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to blend the gold eye shadow (the second from the top left in your quad) into your crease. Make sure to start off very sheer so as to not overwhelm your lid with color. Remember, this starting layer is meant to just serve as a base for your other lighter and darker colors.
Step 3: Add dimension to your crease. Blend the third color down from the top of your quad all the way down to the outer edge of your eye before swooping it up into your crease using your tapered blending brush. Don’t take it all the way into your inner corner. Instead, stop about two-thirds of the way to avoid a hooded effect and encourage a soft smoky eye. Once there’s no more eye shadow on the brush, move in small circular motions to blend it up into your crease and just beyond.
Step 4: Continue to create depth with your next darkest color. Still using your tapered blending brush, apply the darkest color of your quad into your crease. Make sure to leave your inner corner blank to help create a brighter appearance.
Step 5: Highlight the center of your lids. Dust the lightest color of your quad onto the center of your lids to help create an eye-popping look.
Step 6: Highlight your inner eyes. If you want to further brighten the appearance of your face, dust some of that same light color into the inner corners of your eyes.
Step 7: Buff your lids out with a fluffy eye brush. Put your tapered crease brush down and use your fluffy eyeshadow brush (sans eye shadow) to blend all of your colors for a seamless transition between each.
Step 8: Apply black eyeliner. Smudge black pencil eyeliner into your upper lash line. Don’t worry about creating a super-straight line across your lash line. Instead, take a tight-lined approach to create definition while minimizing the look of wearing eyeliner.
Step 9: Blend dark brown eyeshadow overtop your eyeliner. Use a flat eyeshadow brush to buff the dark brown eyeshadow into the black eyeliner to create more natural-looking definition for your eyes. Flick up a bit at the end so that the color along your lash line can blend with the eye shadow a bit. Once you’ve finished lining, use a tapered eyeshadow brush to buff it all about more for a seamlessly blended neutral eye look.
Step 10: Apply voluminous mascara. Once coat of mascara or two, it’s up to you!
Once you’ve completed your eye makeup, it’s time to move on to your face makeup. That’s right, when it actually comes to your big day and creating this blue eye-approved makeup look, be sure to start with your eye makeup first and then follow it up with your face makeup. This way if there’s any fallout from your shadow, you won’t have to smudge your concealer, foundation, powder or highlighter trying to dust it away.
Now that you’ve decided on your makeup, it’s time to nail down your hair look. To help you along the way, check out our article, 3 Wedding Updos That Are Totally on Trend for 2018.
