When we see bridal makeup, we usually notice that makeup artists follow a fixed pattern when it comes to eyes and lips. While eyes are usually kept ranging from soft browns to golds, a darker shade is always preferred on the lips. But if you’re a new age bride and the thought of experimenting with your wedding look has crossed your mind, don’t look back! There’s a lot you can do in terms of colours and shades when it comes to your makeup, especially the eyes. Learn how you can transform your eye makeup with just opting for some unconventional eye shadow shades that are not usually used in bridal makeup…
 

Blues, purples and deep mauves

Blues, purples and deep mauves

When you think about blues and purples as eye shadow shades, you might be thinking floral sundresses, beaches and cocktails. Yes, these are tropical shades typically used as holiday shades most of the time. But these shades can work beautifully when blended with some gold to create a stunning eye makeup look. And if your wedding/reception outfit has any of these colours, nothing like it! The Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette in Royal Persia has rich, pigmented shades of blue, purple and pink that can even be mixed and matched to create wonderful shades!

 

Smoked greens

Trying out new shades that don’t really fall in the bridal zone is not much of a big deal. If you pull it off with confidence, you can rock anything! One such uncommon eye shadow shade is this gorgeous smoked out green that’s part of the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Palette – Gold. This is a shade that looks flattering on a variety of coloured outfits and suits most skin tones too. We also love this palette as it can singlehandedly take you from day to night with light and dark blending/transition shades present in it. So, you don’t have to change your entire eye makeup look from one function to another, just add a dark transition shade and you’re done.

 

Glossy pinks and oranges

We’re so done with seeing glitter eyes everywhere, especially on weddings! Are you tired of the same trend too? Agreed, they look gorgeous, but you’re the bride and you need to stand out. Let all things glitter take a backseat on your wedding and opt for glossy lids with pops of colour instead. We personally love the pinks and oranges but you can alter the shades according to your outfit too! You can use the same Lakmé Illuminating Eye Shadow Palettes to create this look. Want to try something out of the box? Try the holographic glossy eyes to complement your pastel lehenga (if you’re wearing one)!

If you’re getting hitched then have a chat with your makeup artist and try these different eye shadow shades on your makeup trials to see what suits you best. So, go ahead and have fun with colours on your big day!
