The bridal makeup is meant to add a finishing touch of elegance and style to the already beautiful look of the bride. Even though they say that when a woman is in love a smile is the only thing she needs to have on her face, on the big day a woman needs to be flawless and a makeup applied properly will only compliment the eyes.

Our next lines are dedicated to those brides-to-be who have blue eyes and who are looking for a bridal makeup that will suit them best. If you will not let yourself entirely in the hands of the makeup artist, then there are a few basic things you need to know before opening the makeup kit. And the first and foremost thing you need to do is to take a look in the mirror and establish the exact shade of blue that your eyes bear.
Only after you have had this established you can open the kit and look for colors and shades. Now the second most important thing that you must know is that blue eyes are quite pretentious, therefore it is necessary that you pay some extra attention to the intensity of the color(s) chosen. And the third and last thing you need to have in mind before applying the makeup is the bridal look you are aiming for. Having said that, let us consider some ideas.
Many blue eyed brides decide upon the smoky eyes. Indeed it is a very effective and attention triggering type of makeup, but it suits a bold and (slightly) tanned bride better than a shy, pale-skinned one. Furthermore, it is recommended for sophisticated hotel weddings rather than for outdoor garden ones. For those that have already settled their wedding location somewhere under the blue sky our suggestion is to go for warm, soft shades that will help you gain a more natural aspect. To be more precise, nuances of peach, cream or golden are the ones to look for.
On the other hand, avoid colors such as blue or green as they will create an unpleasant contrast with the already intense color of your eyes. It would also be a good idea to use shades of bronze or light shades of pink, especially if you are blonde.
One last piece of advice implies that you should not exaggerate with any of the colors you decide upon; blue eyes are a statement of beauty by themselves, therefore, there is no need for you to overdue with the makeup in order to make them stand out.
