12 Bridal Eye Makeup Looks That Will Make You Glow

Bridal makeup is in a class of its own. It’s beautiful and glowy, or at least that’s the aim. Getting it right can sometimes be challenging, especially when you don’t have the inspiration you need.

Well, that’s what we’re here for! We’ve put together some of the most gorgeous bridal eye makeup looks to help make your special day perfect in every way!

We’ve included tips on how to DIY each makeup look making it more economical for you. Who doesn’t love to save money?!

1. Sultry Smoke Eye Look

Fan of the fox eye makeup look? Well here’s a way to incorporate that into an elegant wedding look. It’s a soft, bronze smokey eye with a nice kickback around the edges of your eye’s outer corners.

If you’re doing this by yourself, try practising with a regular brown smokey shade. Once you’ve perfected that, you can brush on the wing as the last step. A look like this is edgy, yet has a demure quality to it.

To keep it that way, make sure to keep your brown colours in the light to medium range. You can really swap the shades for any colour you want- just keep them all the same tones!

2. Copper Eyeshadow

This eye look is beautiful, striking and not too difficult to copy! It focuses mainly on enhancing the eye shape. And just like in the example, it works wonderfully mesmerising on almond-shaped eyes.

To achieve this, skip the wing from the last look and opt for false lashes that get wispier on the outer eye corner. Line the liquid liner to cover up any glue lines.

The glittery bronze eyeshadow on the lower lash line projects a contemplative aura. It gives a lovely sophisticated look, perfect for your wedding day!

3. Wide-Eyed Peach Eyeshadow

I love how minimal and simple this eye makeup is. It’s a lovely look that helps smaller eyes appear bigger. This works best for those with deep creases, but others can get away with a cut crease to imitate depth.

What you’ll be practising for this bridal eye makeup look is mainly the winged liner. Draw it thick towards the outer corner and reduce it to a thin stroke. A winged eyeliner makes rounded eyes look more almond in shape.

4. Gold Smoke Bridal Eyes

No eye makeup look ideas would be complete without a smokey eye! This smokey eye is perfect for those with golden skin tones. The gold highlights really help to bring out the eye colour and flatter the skin.

Add some thick eyeliner for the full dramatic effect!

5. No Makeup Makeup Look

Gigi Hadid as usual looks as beautiful as ever and although any makeup look instantly looks beautiful on her, this look will flatter most people! And it’s perfect for brides, all that’s missing is the veil and white dress!

This look is ideal for those who want a natural looking no-makeup-makeup look. Subtle yet classy!

6. Sparkling Silver Bride

This beautiful sheer metallic eyeshadow look is perfect for those who like a little glitter and sparkle in their life. Also, anyone can achieve this look, it doesn’t get much easier!

It’s bold without using too many colours or shades. Ideal for an outdoor wedding, particularly an ocean-themed one, your sparkly eyes will match the sparkly sea!

To make this look less one-dimensional, notice how she’s done a bit of defining brown eyeshadow on the edges of the silver one. It gives the illusion of deep-set eyes.

7. Flushed Goth

I’ve been invited to one too many weddings where the themes lean on non-conventional. It’s not so uncommon anymore for brides to opt for an anti-white-themed wedding.

If that’s you, I bet you’ll want to stay away from the typical nudes and no-makeup makeup look. This eye makeup could be right up your street with its splash of purple!

This makeup look is fun and beautiful, and it can be done with any colours you can think of! Don’t forget to add some highlighter to your inner eye corners. It’s that subtle detail that makes this look wedding-friendly.

8. Cherry Smoke

For our hot pink fans out there, here’s bold wedding eye makeup that really coordinates with your persona. I can picture this on a bride walking down a garden aisle surrounded by pink flowers.

This makes an eye-catching makeup look. The bright pink honestly isn’t too loud, but bold enough to let your guests know who’s about to live happily ever after;)

9. Ocean Vibes

Blue perfectly complements brown eyes and makes them pop. Aside from that small detail, it’s a bold, yet glamorous look. I’ll admit, it’s not so weddingy but IMO, it would look stunning in contrast to a white dress.

It’s perfect for an outdoor wedding where your eyes will match the sky! And if you plan on photos by the beach, these eyes will complete the look!

10. Complementary Colours

Did you know that using complementary colours creates a beautiful contrast that makes your eyes stand out? This makeup look does exactly that!

Blue and orange are complementary colours and look at how beautiful it makes her eyes appear! When using complementary colours, you don’t need to go for a bold, pure colour. Go for a softer in-between one and it will work just as well.

11. Neutral Gold Glam

This is one of my favourite looks yet, it’s elegant, classy and totally beautiful! With its shimmer in the middle and matte smokey in the corners, it would make every bride feel and look amazing!

Don’t forget the soft eyeliner and the fake lashes. This makeup look is all about the eyes stealing the show and you’ve got to admit, it is breathtaking!

12. Smokey Smoke Eyes

If you love a smokey eye then you will love this look! The trick with this look is to leave the rest of the face natural so that all the attention goes to the eyes!

Smokey eyes look hard to do but in reality, with a little practice anyone can get it right! Start with a matte base colour all over your lid, then move on to the smokey shade in the corner. Top it off with a neutral shimmer in the middle of your eyes and some strong black eyeliner.

Don’t forget to wing it! To complete the look apply your fake lashes and put some mascara on your bottom lashes.
