When nailing down your wedding day beauty, it’s important to choose a makeup look that will be complementary to your natural features. For example, your eye shape and skin tone. You also want a style that will make your eyes pop – especially if you’re blessed with striking baby blues! The right makeup tones will not only enhance the colour of your iris but make your skin look healthy and bright. But which wedding makeup looks best with blue eyes? To find out, we went straight to our archive for some gorgeous looks created by the Make Me Bridal makeup pros at real weddings and shoots. If your eyes are your ‘something blue’, you’re sure to find inspiration here!

Blue eyes are enhanced the most by warm tones like coppers, golds, and warm browns. Black liner creates a glamorous look, while a warmer toned liner such as a deep chocolate brown, would have a more natural effect.

While matte eye shadows are especially flattering on blue eyes, shimmers can look great too, especially in warm shades. For a bridal look, gold champagne metallics are a beautiful look, especially with a bit of highlight on the inner corners of the eyes.

Light or white eyeshadow smoked out at the corners, paired with contrasting black eyeliner, will really make blue eyes stand out. Don’t forget beautifully filled and defined brows to complete the look!

Another option for brides with blue eyes is to opt for purple-grey eyeshadow hues. They particularly flatter lighter skin tones, so often work best on blonde-haired, blue-eyed brides.

To make blue eyes look wider, sweep dark shadow above your lash line to the centre of your eyes and pair with minimal liner on the lower lash line. Fluttery (but natural-looking!) false eyelashes complete the look.

A classic smoky eye is always a dramatic look for blue eyes, especially for brides with pale blue irises. For a more natural look, stick to lighter neutral tones.

Love a bold, retro lip? You’re in luck! A bright red lip can really set off blue eyes. Be sure to pick a red lipstick with blue undertones to get it right.

If you’d like something a little softer, a rosy pink lip is also a great choice as pink shades contrast prettily with blue. Another option is to pick up pink shades in your eye shadow.

Of course, soft, natural, no-makeup makeup is also a great option for brides with blue eyes. This look plays up the bride’s flawless skin, with a peachy golden tone on the lids and a soft pink blush on the cheeks. Light liner and a sweep of mascara finish it off perfectly.

Blush can do a great job at drawing attention to the eyes, whatever their colour. It leads eyes to the highest point of the face. A rosy pink blush looks lovely on many blue eye brides, both blonde and brunette.
