Choosing the right makeup for your wedding day can be especially difficult, particularly when it comes to your eyes. The main thing is to make sure you look and feel like yourself because it's YOUR big day, after all!
Back in 2011, Kate Middleton reportedly did her own makeup so that Prince William would recognise his bride as she glided down the aisle to meet him. This is an idea that every bride should bear in mind, whether doing a little DIY or getting some help from a makeup artist. For eye makeup, this means sticking to the kind of makeup look you usually wear, only an enhanced version of it.The natural look
For those of you out there who don't really wear eye make-up, fear not, you don't need to plaster on cosmetics like a Kardashian just because you're getting married. Brown mascara and a hint of kohl along your upper lashline are all you need to help define your eyes. If you want a really natural look, leave out the kohl.The polished yet understated look
For anyone who feels like something a little more detailed, a subtle cat-eye look is always an option. We're not talking huge flicks at the outer corners of your eyes, merely a small, fine line that slightly surpasses the point your eyelashes stop. This will add a slightly playful feline touch to your look that is at once very girly and a little bit sexy.The smoky look
Going back to Kate Middleton, a very light smoky eye look can also work with a bridal makeup look. Just a hint of eyeshadow on your eyelids, blended outwards slightly at the corners, adds a more three-dimensional aspect to your eye makeup without looking overdone. Pale greys and silvers are best as they aren't too sombre. Just remember that less really is more!
Top tip: Whichever eye makeup style you choose, make sure you use a waterproof mascara. You never know when all those gloriously happy emotions might get the better of you!
