You want to learn how to apply wedding makeup for the eye properly and I'd love to teach you. Whether it's for a wedding or not, good eye makeup application will take the same form and it's not difficult. It just takes practice.
I'm going to give you the basics here and add some free eye makeup tips too.
The eyes are the most expressive part of the face and skilfully applied makeup will accentuate them, bringing out their best points and hiding the weakest. The trick is to learn to apply all your eye cosmetics accurately.
Every stroke counts - whether you are aiming for a simple 60 second miracle before you rush out in the morning or layers of colour and luscious lashes for an event such as a wedding.
Eye liner is used to accentuate the shape of your eyes by emphasising the borders of the eyelids and providing a contrast between the dark eye liner and the white of the eye. It should be applied after eye shadow.
For a subtle effect, use an eye pencil or gel eye liner in the same colour, but a darker tone, as your shadow. Dot the colour all along your upper lashes and just below the lower ones. Blend or smudge with a sponge or cotton bud to get the desired effect.
The eyebrows are an important part of how to apply wedding makeup for the eyes and will bring strength and expression to your face. If yours are in good shape they will balance your features and provide a frame for your eyes.
Use a small brush to brush your brows into shape and get rid of any excess foundation or powder on them.
To define your eyebrows, fill them out or prolong them, use an eyebrow pencil with a sharp point in a colour to tone with them.
Start at the inner corner of the eyebrow and use short, light, upward strokes as you work towards the middle. Then from the centre of the eyebrow to the outer edge, use the same kind of feathery strokes but tip them downward a little.
Finally, to apply wedding makeup try a small amount of eyebrow fixer or brush on some clear mascara for a quick and easy 'stay in shape' solution.
Mascara is one of the top three beauty products us girls just can't live without! Waterproof mascara is useful for weddings but non-waterproof ones are usually easier to remove so better for everyday use.
For thick fluttery lashes, close one eye and brush your favourite volumising mascara wand down from the roots to the tips. Then open your eye wide and brush the top lashes from underneath, again from roots to tips. Then with your eye open, work from roots to tips on the bottom lashes. Repeat for the other eye.
Especially for weddings, keep the look fresh and romantic by curling the upper lashes before applying another layer of mascara.
