Tips for Gorgeous, Expressive Eyes
When it comes to Indian weddings, everyone knows that grandeur and boldness are everything. As a bride, when you consider different types of makeup for your eyes, the slightly heavier styles photograph well. Light or nude makeup does not usually complement bright and glittery Indian bridal wear. Since your eyes are the most attention-grabbing feature of your face, they need to be done with expertise to look expressive without seeming gaudy or tacky.
Though you likely have a makeup artist for your wedding, you might want to try these DIY makeup tips for pre-wedding events.
Begin with a base
A foundation primer for the eyes is very important to ensure the makeup lasts longer. Blend the primer foundation into your skin and let it settle for a few minutes. Next, spray water on the applied primer foundation. Use a cotton pad or a towel to gently tap the eyes. This gets rid of any excess primer.
Decide on the look
In the months prior to your wedding, experiment with different shades and weights of eye shadows. Choose colors that match or complement your bridal dress as well as your complexion. It is important to choose colors that enhance your skin tone. Some options to achieve the ideal look:
• Conventional dual-toned eyeshadow is always an option. To add traditional appeal, add a touch of glittering gold or silver eyeshadow just under the outer edges of your eyebrows.
• Light smokey eyes work well for many Indian brides and is usually the go-to look for an evening affair such as the reception.
• Make the eyes stand out with heavy kohl or eyeliner and mascara. Use false lashes to amplify length and accentuate the eyes. Finish the look with a high quality mascara.
In order for your eyes to truly shine, don’t forget about the rest of your face! To best highlight your eyes, the rest of your makeup should complement the look. Consider a soft pink or bronze blush to balance dramatic eyes. Lip colors can range from subtle to bold depending on the look you choose for your eyes.
