7 Bridal Eye Makeup Trends Of 2020!
#1 Natural/ Slightly Tinted:
For brides who believe simplicity is the best way to go on their D-Day, this bridal eye makeup will surely impress you. This kind of eye makeup involves putting on subtle, skin-like colors on your lids with a pop of mellow color here and there. The key is to form a good foundation and eye base so that the makeup blends in perfectly with your natural skin. It might look easy to nail, but ask the makeup artists who do it. Sometimes the simplest makeup looks take the longest time.
Another pro-point about this sort of eye makeup is it doesn’t need as many touch-ups and tends to last for a longer time than others mentioned in this list.
#2 Monotone Bridal Eyes:
A monotone bridal eye, as its namesake, is done using one color only. The color used generally matches with the outfit the bride is seen wearing. Some usual variations to it include adding a pop of glitter of the same color, creating a gradient or glam it up with slyly adding another color. It’s bigger sister is what became famous as a monochromatic makeup look - which basically means using the same kind of shade on your eyes, lips and cheeks.
We recommend going for this with an outfit that's the same shade all over. Carrying a single tone of color through all parts of your bridal avatar does give it a very interesting look.
#3 Brown/ Bronze Look:
An eye makeup look that suits the Indian skintone the best. Besides, it works best with brown eyes, which most Indians possess. A brown bridal eye makeup goes with all kinds of lehenga colors. If you are the kind of bride-to-be that wants a natural look but tinted eyeshadow, this eye makeup is the way to go! In addition, brown eye makeup also makes the natural beauty of your eyes pop out. Probably why Deepika opted for brown as a base shade for her wedding eye makeup!
#4 Halo/ Cut-Crease Eye Makeup:
The most glamorous out of all! Halo and cut-crease eyeshadows are the latest fad in the makeup industry. They are so alluring that some makeup artist’s take a separate course on them to master them flawlessly. Halo eyes also known as ‘spotlight eyes’ are basically blending in the eyeshadow properly and placing a lighter, brighter (generally glitter) shade in the middle of the eyes to create an intense eye look. Cut-Crease is an eye makeup in which the crease of the eyelids is cut using a different color eyeshadow with little to no blending. This adds depth to the eyes and makes them look more open. Have a look!
#5 Smokey Eyes:
The classic smokey eyes have found their way into the world of bridal eye makeup as well! They look classy, sultry and downright tempting. Probably the most sought-after eye looks of all time - both inside the wedding industry and outside. And we love it a lot too! We think all brides should go for it - if not for the big day than some other function. However, acing the perfect smokey eyes is not all MUA’s cup of tea, so we do advise you do proper research on the makeup artist’s skills and their previous brides before booking!
#6 Shimmery Eyes:
As a bride-to-be, you deserve to shine in all your glory. How about making your eyes shine a little brighter too. Shimmer or glitter eye makeup is ideal for brides who want to add a graceful oomph to their full look. There are so many ways to add glitter eye makeup - from dabbing just a bit to daubing it all over your eyes. Go for the one that suits your personality the best. You can hardly go wrong with glitter bridal eye makeup.
#7 Deep Kohled Eyes:
An intense kohled eye looks uber-chic and fits into the diary of a millennial, contemporary bride. It’s also Bollywood’s favorite kind of eye look and all the actresses carry it quite frequently. Lining both the lower and upper waterline of eyes is what Indians have been doing for ages. And for a good reason. This technique makes the eyes look bigger, brighter and more attractive. We absolutely admire this kind of eye makeup and after looking at these brides, you will too!
