It is an old saying that the “Eyes are the window to the soul”. I believe that beauty radiates from the eyes. Most brides request an eye makeup that emphises the eyes for their wedding day. Eyeshadows is one of the most captivating and fun elements of makeup that puts an accent on the eyes. Creating this elegant makeup look for Valentina I used a mix of neutrals and rosy tones to achieve a sophisticated yet oh-so-bridal look. Eyeliner also helps to transform your everyday makeup to something a bit more special to enhance your eyes. Along with eyelashes and eyebrows, eyeliner helps frame your eyes, making them look defined in wedding photos. For Valentina I opted for a waterproof black gel liner that doesn’t smudge or run, which is great for a wedding day and can withstand some happy tears. Winged eyeliner begs for a heavy lash line. If you are on the fence about using faux lashes, remember that your eyes will look more complete in photos with the addition of some natural looking fake lashes. The other option for brides is individual false lashes which are very light, and when applied properly, the final result simply enhances the natural look of your eyes.
