Women with light, medium and dark/olive skin often have green eyes. These different skin tones have more to do with what color eye shadow you wear than the actual color of your eyes. So keeping that in mind, consider the following tips for stand-out eyes (in a great way) that will radiate the joy you feel on your wedding day.
Brides who have light skin and blond or red hair should stick with pale purples, teals, tans, taupe and peach shades of eye shadow.
Brides who have medium skin tones with brown, auburn or dark red hair will find their eyes are at their best when done in deeper purples, browns, taupe, coca, copper and darker teals.
And finally…brides whose skin is darker or olive, select shades in darker purple and plum, medium to dark green, dark browns and maybe even charcoal.
No matter what shades you use, gradually lighten the color from crease to brow bone, with the darker shades along the lash line.
White or brown eyeliner and mascara should be used with the exception of those with darker or olive skin. Women with these skin tones can use black or green for a dramatic effect. NOTE: If white eyeliner is used on the bottom lash line, gently smudge for a ‘smoky’ effect.
For the most dramatic of effects, a bit of gold or bronze shimmery eye shadow can be applied at the outer corners.
Blush should be in a peach or coral shade and blended well to give the slightest hint of color. It is always best to use cream blush. It has staying power and is easy to apply and blend.
The blush should be applied on top of concealer applied under the eye area and a carefully applied foundation to match your skin tone.
Lips should be done in a shade similar to your blush-peaches and corals. A bit of shiny, gloss will make them as kissable as you want them to be.
Finish your look with neatly brushed and groomed brows and translucent face powder.
