Bridal Eye Makeup Tutorial – Red and Bronze Bridal Look From 88 Palette


Hi beauties πŸ™‚
It’s wedding season and I thought of doing a simple bridal look, you can check out one recent bridal look done by Ana here. I chose red and bronze because these colors are the central colors that any bride wears on her special day. So quickly get started with the look :-

  • Step1: Prep up your eyelid

I started off with applying a concealer and blended it onto the clean lid. Then I used a skin colored shimmery e/s all over the lid starting from the inner corner upto the eyebrows.

  • Step2: Apply eyeshadows

I used the e/s no.2 & 3 (refer the products used image) and placed it in the center of the eyelid blending it both inwards and outwards but focusing it mainly at the center only. Then using a big fluffy brush I used e/s no.4 on the crease area just to get the socket more defined.

  • Step3: Create Depth & Highlight

Then to add more depth and precision I drew a line on my socket area using a black e/s and an angular brush , then blended the line. After the blending is done, I again highlighted the brow bone using no.1 e/s (on the inner corner and on brow bone).

Then I curled my lashes and used two coats of mascara, made a thick winged liner and filled in my waterline with a kohl.

Important points:-


  • Avoid using foundations with spf, they donÒ€ℒt go with flash photography.
  • As bridal makeup is always expected to be dark and convincing, and required to stay for a long long time, I would suggest any of you (bride-to-be) to get your eyes done first rather than getting the face base done. This is because working with eye shadows (dark or shimmery) may ruin your foundation. Once youÒ€ℒre done with eye makeup, you can clean out all falls with a cosmetic wipe, then get the rest of your face done.
  • Its essential to get a e/s base which will hold onto your e/s for very long hours without creasing.
  • Use false eyelashes only if you have tried them before, else you might feel quite a lot of weight on your eyes because of so much makeup + false eye lashes too.
  • Use concealer very well to hide any blemishes on your face and around your eyes to hide puffiness/blemishes/dark circles etc.
  • Because your makeup artist will use a lot of shimmery stuff on your face, therefore Use a matte face powder or a translucent powder to set your makeup.
  • DonÒ€ℒt go for very dark blush, because your eyes would be heavily done + your lips will be heavily loaded with lipstick so as to last long. Just opt for a slightly contoured face, with very light blush and highlighted cheek bones.
  • For lips, first line them using a similar lip pencil matching the lip shade you want to apply. Fill in the lips with the lip pencil, blot it using a tissue, then fill in your lips with the lip stick, then again blot it, again re-apply the lip stick and blot it. Finally apply the lipstick and youÒ€ℒre done. Using a gloss would not be a good idea, because lip glosses donÒ€ℒt last long + you wonÒ€ℒt be able to reapply the gloss while sitting on the stage πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
  • Use long lasting smudge proof kohl for your water line, or you can even use gel eyeliners, they donÒ€ℒt smudge, donÒ€ℒt irritate the eyes, are waterproof and last for hours.
