Elegant Bridal Makeup

This is a timeless and elegant bridal look that is perfect for any season or makeup personality. It defines the eyes without being too dramatic and the skin looks flushed and healthy. Super full lashes add a romantic touch, and they'll make your eyes stand out in photos. Most of my brides request variations of this look, but it's also perfect for any special event or evening out.

1. Prime the eyes to ensure crease-proof, long lasting shadow application, I used my Urban Decay Primer Potion.
2. Smudge on a base of white pencil to keep the eyeshadow colors looking light and romantic.
3. Press a matte cream colored shadow onto the lid and all the way up the brow bone.
4. Blend a matte light brown shade into the crease to softly add definition.
5. Deepen the outer corner of the crease with a matte dark brown shadow for added depth.
6. Highlight the center of the eye and the tear duct with a pearly shimmery shadow to brighten the eyes.
7. Line the top lashline with a black pencil and blend it with a smudge brush. Add a matte brown shadow over the liner to keep the look soft.
8. Add mascara and add false lashes if you wish. For this look I glued on individual lashes to keep them looking naturally full.
9. Smudge a bit of dark brown matte shadow along the outside edge of the bottom lash line and highlight the inner half of the bottom lash line with a shimmery champagne shadow.
10. Finish the look by filling in the brows to frame the face. I used my Anastasia Brow Wiz in 'Medium Ash'.
