The eyes of a bride have their own vocabulary. They can reveal hints of her deepest thoughts in just one look. They can reflect joy, mischief and sadness all at once. The beautiful eyes of a bride are not meant to be ignored, but to be adorned in the most celebrated way possible. The reason behind a bride's exquisitely attractive eyes is not just the anticipating look of a new life, but also the play of gorgeous eyeshadows that adorn it. Eye makeup for brides isn’t all just about elaborate ideas for bridal makeup though, it's about creating a balance between what suits the bride and what's in trend.
Generally, bridal makeup is on the warmer sides with foundations of browns and reds topped off with glittering goldens.

As the winter bridal season begins, brides are embracing cool-toned colours for both their outfits as well as their makeup.
