Eye makeup suggestions for navy blue bridesmaids dress

Recommended Posts

My best friend since 2nd grade is getting married to my cousin early this summer and I am trying to figure out what to do for eye makeup. I want it to be pretty and subtle, but also match the occasion. Our dresses are navy blue lace and my eyes are an amber brown color, that turns almost hazel when I wear contacts. I was thinking of just doing a neutral eye makeup look that goes with my eye color ,but any suggestions would be appreciated.

Wow! That is going to be so fun having your best friend be a part of your family :) I think your idea with neutral tones is a smart one. But you can jazz it up by choosing shades that have some shimmer to them. Maybe you can use neutral browns/bronze for your lid and under your brow, and a maroon or some other pop of color on your crease.

 

I love the Urban Decay Naked palette... it comes with several different shades to choose from and will give you a couple of bright color choices as well.

I would do a neutral eye in browns like you were planning to. I watched the above video and absolutely love MAC Painterly paint pot now. I would use something like that on the lid with MAC Soft Brown in the crease and a light beige highlighter on the brow bone.

 

But I would also wear a navy eyeliner with this brown look. I think that would compliment your dress. I don't know exactly what shade your dress is but here are some navy eyeliners to choose from:

Thanks everyone for all the fantastic suggestions, I like the neutral colors with a navy liner idea. How similar is the CS Revealed palette to the UD naked palette? I am asking because I have the Revealed palette, Thanks!

Make your eye look bigger, go for a pencil eyeliner as it tends to be softer. Smudge the line with your finger so that it looks more natural than a straight line.

    • 10 WAYS EYELINER CAN MAKE YOUR EYES LOOK BIGGER Faking bigger eyes is a covetable makeup trick that just about every guru has mastered. Although we can’t promise a magical doe eyes at the drop of a hat, we can give you some easy, foolproof ways to make your own eyes bigger and brighter using only eyeliner and mascara (no shadow necessary). Ahead, find ten simple looks that use eyeliner and a tinge of mascara to get those rounder, enviable eyes. How To Prep 1. Dab on lightweight eye cream to hydrate. Focus only on the area under the eyes, not lids (as this will cause makeup to smear). The cream should absorb quickly and leave your skin feeling smooth but not greasy. Try Lancôme Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Lifting And Firming Eye Cream. 2. Apply a color corrector to neutralize dark circles. Pick an orange-based corrector and apply with a small brush. Make sure to go up to the lashline, as well as the inner corner of the eye to lighten the dark area by the nose. Let the color sit on your skin instead of blending in. Try L'Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit. 3. Pat concealer directly on top of the corrector. This will virtually erase any darkness and create a smooth, clean palette for your eye makeup.  Use your ring finger to blend the concealer carefully. We recommend the Maybelline New York FaceStudio Master Camo Color Correcting Kit for this step. 4. Keep concealer from sliding away throughout the day with powder.  Choose a translucent powder, like the L'Oréal Paris Hydra Perfecte Loose Powder and lightly dust it all over the face.See More :  WINTER EYE MAKEUP TUTORIALS FOR BROWN EYES   How To Get The Look Shimmery Bright
