Contouring is a way to show off your face, enhance your cheek and look flawless. If you are thinking of going heavy on the eye makeup, go soft with your lip colour. Silver eye makeup looks stunning and highlights your eyes. Take a soft shade of pink for your lips to complement the silver. Also make sure you have impeccably groomed brows.

3. Pink and Rose Gold Eyes

Pink and rose gold are an amazing match.

You want to feel extra special on your big day and with rose gold eye makeup, you definitely will. Rose gold adds shimmer and with pink blended in too, it will match your lip colour and maybe even the theme of your wedding!

4. Smokey Winged Eyeliner

Smokey eyes are sexy.

Many girls have smokey eyes for their daily makeup and when you have to decide on your bridal makeup, you don’t want to feel uncomfortable and bare. You will compare your bridal makeup to your daily makeup and you will feel less special, so you might as well go for a look you love and are familiar with. Go for a smokey winged eyeliner look to create the intensity. Add false lashes to add to the look. Team with a little dash of glitter. Add a subtle touch of dark eyeshadow to underneath your eyes.

5. Sparkly & Smokey Eye Makeup Look

If you are having a sparkle themed wedding, and are looking to incorporate this into your makeup, this one is for you.

There is no need to wear jewellery when you have gold makeup! Unless you want to wear your jewellery, it will team your makeup. Glitter can make us feel glamorous and goddess like. These are feelings we need on our wedding day. Make your eyes shine with this striking gold glitter.

7. Soft & Neutral Makeup Look

Many brides opt for a natural makeup look. Soft colours with neutral tones are ideal for brides. Rosy lips, shimmering cheeks all add to the fresh look.

Kim Kardashian has made this makeup technique as popular as ever. It has been around for many moons but it’s trending now. To achieve this cut crease style, use a spoon to ensure you have the outcome you need. Add a shimmering champagne eyeshadow that looks divine and blend with a dark purple and peachy colour.

9. Soft Brown Eyes + Neutral Lips

Let your natural beauty speak for itself.

Brown has a softer look over black. Black can often be too harsh so for a softer appearance, go for a brown eyeshadow and lightly apply to your eyelids. Team with a nude lip colour.

10. Soft, Glittery Glam

Adding glitter on your wedding day can be that subtle extra lift you need.

This soft, glittery eyeshadow looks delicate and sparkles. No need to add big false eyelashes as you need to stick to the softer presence. Apply a light coat of mascara for the finishing touches.

    Love all the looks but it’s kind of crazy that every single makeup look is of a Caucasian women. Women of every cultural background should be represented here. There are so many of these looks that could have featured women of other shades.

    I agree with Shay ; although all of these looks are beautiful and so are the women wearing them but it only represents one race; I’m Afro-Latina and I these looks are not a representation of me.

    Always someone bitching somewhere about how an ad or commercial does not represent there ethniticity or there culture or there religious beliefs, or there political views. WTF! Can we not just enjoy an Fing book or movie or commercial or news story without worrying about all the rest of the shit?
    I’m a Caucasian female with Italian, German, Irish, and British roots and yeah I enjoyed this ad for eye makeup!

    Bonnie no one cares where you’re from. You are rude. It would be nice if there were a few different skin tones because the fact that every single model has every color eyes but brown makes it kind of difficult to get a good idea on which color looks best for brown eyes. You know. The dominant eye color. Meaning more people have brown eyes then not. So yea this post is accurate and you’re just annoying. Also you’re fighting with a post from 2016. Don’t you have anything better to do? Go take your Caucasian Italian German Irish British entitled a** to therapy. Cause you need it. Spare anyone who has to deal with you.

    I am also Caucasian and a mix of a bunch of roots…but I represent a brand of white people that agree other skin tones and ethnicities should have been included in this article. The fact that you enjoyed this article but condemn people from a different color for pointing out it is very non inclusive means you have some personal problems with your uppity righteous close minded bland skin tone. Go tan somewhere and bleach your hair and join the barbie doll collection. Actually, even Barbie dolls are becoming more inclusive so I can’t even say that. Just take a big sit down and shut up.
