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.

    • This Advent Calendar sounds amazing!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
    • I am going on a No Buy (replacements only) in January and February. My goal is to pay off a credit card of $140 (accounting for interest, I will need to pay off around $150), and to use up my deluxe sample sized beauty items. The same resolution I have every year, but this time it's different. I'll be paying off the last in a very long series of mini debts I had in my debt snowball, after two years of paying things off. After that I'll be going into a different phase, working on larger debts. Also, I am starting with far, far fewer sample beauty products than I used to, having used so many up in the last two years.  It's exciting, getting to the end of this phase. I'm going to be going through my samples in the next two weeks and getting ready! It's a good way to start the year, with smaller goals and easier wins. 
    • Do you like card games? for example poker?
    • Advent calendar: Day 8 - Bright red nail polish - Polish was so easy to apply, and lasted well. I got several compliments on it.  Day 9 - At the Heart of Pine Trees Holiday Shower Gel - a fresh orange scent with a soft wood note.  Day 10 - Apricot body scrub.  Day 11 - Hydrating micellar water.  Day 12 - Plein Soleil Perfume - I love the perfume! It is tuberose with a hint of cardamom, to evoke travels to the East.  Day 13 - At the Heart of Pine Trees matching body lotion.  Day 14 - Mango Coriander Shower Gel.  I've been feeling the pressure of the holidays this month! I've been frustrated, because I have not been able to make progress on paying my credit card off by the end of the year. It's looking like it's not going to happen. I wanted to pay it off by the end of the year just because of perfectionism. Since it was the last in the series of smaller balance debts in my debt snowball, I thought it would be nice to have it done by New Year's Eve and start January with a larger goal. After having a relaxed day (I went to the park for a walk and saw baby deer!), I finally thought of something that made it okay to defer that goal a bit. I realized I won't be finished with my mini beauty products by the New Year either. I have far fewer than in past years, but I'll still have some to get through. I always had the concept of using my mini sample products and paying my smaller debts (the easier goals) and after that was through, I would use up full sized products while paying off larger debts. After thinking of that, I felt it would be okay to make a new plan and give myself January and February to pay my last small bill ($140) while using up the mini products. Then in March I can begin work on larger debts and larger products! I did achieve all of my 2019 New Year's Resolutions, and paid off five credit cards this year, and I'm very happy with that. I'm not going to go on a shopping spree and buy myself a lot of things with credit cards, but I do need to make it through Christmas!       
    • I think Makeup brushes are a base for makeup, especially for this set of makeup brushes, highly recommended.
