Classic Wedding Smokey Eye

Hello everyone! I wanted to share a super simple eye tutorial with you all today. Since it's wedding season, I've been doing makeup for a ton of brides. This look I'm going to show you is the perfect neutral smokey eye for any wedding. I get a lot of photos brought in of this exact same look so I wanted to show you how you can achieve it with just a few products! Enjoy!

The Tutorial

  1. Apply a loose pigment eye shadow to the inner corner of lid and half-way across lower lid.

    2. Apply a shimmery taupe shadow to the outer half of lid and blend into crease.

   3. Apply a medium tone brown to the outer corner of lid and slightly blend into the crease

  4. Apply a dark brown to the outer corners and blend.

  5. Highlight your brow bone with a light cream shadow.

 6. Take a black liner and tightline the upper and lower lash line.

 7. Blend the lower lash line with the dark brown shadow.

 8. Smudge a dark black eye shadow along the base of your top lashes for a soft liner effect.

 9. Apply a lengthening mascara.


Products Used:
  • Bare Minerals "The Truth" READY Eye Shadow Quad
  • Bare Minerals "Queen Phyllis" Loose Eye Shadow
  • Rimmel ScandalEYES Waterproof Liner (Black)
  • L'oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara (new find- love it!)

I absolutely love doing wedding makeup. Knowing that I get to make a bride feel extra special on her day is an awesome feeling! This look isn't only for wedding, I use this for a lot of proms and various special occasions. It's my go-to smokey look and it looks great on everyone!

I hope you enjoyed!
Until next time...
