Your wedding day is one occasion you want to go all out with the outfit, the jewellery and most of all, the makeup! And even if you aren’t too skilled as far as applying makeup goes, you know your makeup artist can ace any bridal look that you aspire. Talking about eye makeup, many of us are fans of the smokey eye look, and ladies, going by what we’ve seen on our stunning real brides, your wedding day is the perfect occasion to flaunt this. Here are some of the best bridal smokey eye makeup we spotted… Take some inspiration if you’re a soon-to-be bride or are to attend a wedding soon.
1. Glam gold

2. Half and half

3. Pretty in pink

4. Dark and dreamy

5. Mesmerizing Matte

The matte gold eyeshadow that extends into a brown on the outer corners is a nice twist to the smokey eye look, isn’t it? Finish up with a fine stroke of winged eyeliner and you’re good to go.
6. Bring on the bold

7. All that glitters is gold

8. Edgy excellence

9. Basic black

And why we say that is because it’s an all-black look that she went for - black eyeshadow until the crease. We also see multiple layers of mascara that go wonderfully with this eye makeup style. She balanced out her look by going for soft pink lips and a very subtle cheek tint. We give her a thumbs up!
10. Shimmer and shine

Those ultra arched brows and shimmer on the eyelids, that extend into multiple shades of brown eyeshadow on the outer corners is a look any bride would want on D-day. Also, we love that there is a coat of that sheen on her black eyeliner too!
