Your wedding day is the time to be in the spotlight, so don’t let your makeup overwhelm your natural beauty.
Follow our list of eye do and don’t:
- Think seriously about hiring a makeup artist; everyday makeup is different from your wedding day needs.
- Take time to try a few different makeup artists and choose one who understands your personal tastes.
- Use eye drops if your eyes look red or tired on the day of.
- Get as much sleep as possible the night before the big day.
- Apply concealer to banish dark circles under your eyes.
- Use matte eye shadows (they won’t reflect light).
- Use an off-white matte shadow along your brow bone if you have light skin, or peach if you have dark skin, to illuminate your eyes even more.
- Blend well, especially at the corners of your eyes, since cameras pick up visible makeup lines.
- Define your brows with a pencil or powder that matches your hair color.
- Wear at least two layers of mascara.
- Use an eyelash curler before and after applying your first coat of mascara.
- Prevent makeup meltdowns by using a smudge-proof or waterproof mascara.
- Wear too much eye makeup.
- Change your eye color with colored lenses (unless you always wear them).
- Try to be too trendy.
- Use an under-eye concealer that’s too light for your skin tone.
- Experiment with eye products you haven’t tried before.
- Wear dark shadows like charcoal or dark brown.
- Wear frosted, shiny, sparkly shadow.
- Forget about your eyebrows.
- Tweeze your brows at the last minute on your wedding morning.
