Bridal Makeup Tutorial: Brown and Gold Smokey Eye

Bridal Makeup Tutorial: Brown and Gold Smokey Eye

Bridal Makeup Tutorial: watch it on YouTube – HERE

Most of you already know that I’m getting married this year; I cannot even begin to describe my excitement and I am literally counting the days :) In preparation, I’ve decided to start trying different makeup looks to see which one I like the most for my big day, so I filmed this tutorial so you guys can see what sort of thing I’m thinking about. I’ll probably have someone do my makeup on the day, just to take the stress off my hands, but it’s nice to know beforehand exactly what I want.

So here is a makeup look that I absolutely love, especially for brides with olive skin and brown eyes. It consists of a brown and gold smokey eye with a little bit of dark plum/purple, and flawless, glowing skin. I’ll probably have something very similar to this on my Wedding day :)

Tell me what you guys think! I’d love to hear your opinion and suggestions. Leave a comment below telling me if you think I should do my own Wedding makeup! :)

    Thank you, Claudia! I’m still playing around with the looks, but I’m sure it will be something very similar to this, as these are the colours that flatter my skintone the most :) x

    Thanks, Holly! I thought this is the one look I can afford to give myself some time blend all the eyeshadows properly :)
