Tips on Applying Bridal Eye Makeup for Photos

Today's question is "what are some tips on applying bridal makeup for photos." 
 
My first tip is is to keep the palette neutral but with some really beautiful pops of shimmer bronze and deep deep browns. That way you still have a lot of emphasis and definition on the eye without putting too much color in it that can compete with whatever dress you are wearing for the occasion.
In the video above, you can see that our lovely model already has some bronze eye shadow all over. This instantly adds a kind of subtle smokiness.
  • Now, to really make this pop for the wedding we're going to add a black eyeliner near the lash line and then a little bit of a deeper dark brown eye shadow on top to smoke it out.
  •  First, you want to pull the eyelid back taut and if you are doing this on yourself, you simply look down towards the mirror and in tiny feather-like strokes, push this black eyeliner down towards the base of the eyelash.
  • Next, you want to take a very deep dark brown as you can see right here, I'm using this brown color from this palette and you're going to smoke it over that black shadow. As you can see, this really helps to soften the line and stop it from looking too harsh.
  • For added definition, just add a tiny bit of that dark brown underneath the outer corners of the eye and there you go, a simple classic yet defined look for applying makeup at a wedding party for photos.
