01

Prime them eyes!

It’s all about the primer! This base layer is the first and most important step since your makeup can smear or fold without primer. We used the Matte Ulta Beauty Eye Primer. Use your finger or a makeup brush to apply the primer to your eyes. The primer will help to calm down any oils on your eyelid making sure your makeup stays in tip top shape.

02

Apply powder!

Apply a light amount of powder to the eyes. Not too much, but just enough to set the primer. We used the Mac Mineralize Powder.

03

The eyeshadow magic begins!

Using a medium fluffy brush, take a light brown color and begin on the outside corner of your eye. Wherever you place your brush first is where you will get the most color so make sure you are starting in the outside corner of your eye. Moving the brush in a circular motion, slowly begin to drag the color into the top of the eyelid. At this point your eye should be outlined in a light brown color. We used the ManEater Palette by Tarte.

04

Blend, add color, blend!

Using a slightly smaller fluffy round brush, take a light skin-toned color and move from the middle of the eyelid towards the inner corner of the eye. Move the brush in small circles. Blend this color into the light brown on the outside of the eye. This will soften the look and brighten the inner corner of the eye. 

05

Shimmer the brows, shimmer the corner, shimmer it all.

Using a flat brush take a light and slightly shimmery color and apply beneath the eyebrows. Start on the outside corners and underline the eyebrow. Make sure to blend and not to use too much product. This will help your makeup pop. Next, take this same color and place it in the inner corners of the eyes. 

06

Give me them thick lashes!

Using the same flat brush as before, take a dark brown color and line the lash line. This should create a very soft and romantic eyeline. This will give the lashes the perfect amount of depth and thickness. 

07

Maintenance. 

Using a makeup wipe clean up just beneath your under eye. You can take the wipe out past the corner of your eye to create a wing shape if desired. This isn’t necessary! It can’t hurt to clean.

08

We have to show the under eyes some lovin’ too!

If you are wearing face makeup with this look, now would be a good time to blend out your concealer to make sure you don’t experience any creasing later. Next, take a flat brush, using the same light brown color used previously, lightly brush the color onto the lower lash line. This will make your eyes pop without looking too harsh.

09

Curl them lashes!

Take your lash curler and curl your lashes in preparation for mascara! This will lift and open your eye while making it look bigger and brighter! 

10

Finishing touches!

It’s time to apply your mascara! We recommend using a waterproof mascara because you never know when the water works will pay a visit. All things bridal and wedding can get quite emotional. We used the Elf Lash It Loud Mascara. Complete the top or the bottom lashes first and let them completely dry before completing the other side. This will lower your chances of mascara flying all over the place. When you apply mascara to your lower lashes it can help to blot off some of the product on a paper towel. Less is more! 

And with that, your soft eyeshadow look is ready to hit the aisle. You could never look more beautiful! This look is one you can take on and off the reception dance floor as you celebrate everything wedding. If you are looking to complete this makeup look check out the links below.

01

Wax them brows!

Start with your brow wax and a spoolie. Begin by brushing your brows upwards with the wax on the spoolie. An alternative to brow wax is brow glue which will give you the same results! Make sure to use wax, glue, or another alternative that will hold your brows in the direction that you want them to go. We used the Mehron Pro Brow Palette.

02

The outline begins!

Use a brow pencil to fill in some areas of your brow that have some space. Use light strokes to mimic eyebrow hair. After you have filled in your brows, take your waxed spoolie and brush over the areas that were just filled. This will help to blend in the pencil with the hair. We used the Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil in 3.5 which works with almost all eyebrow hair colors. This is a perfect stopping point if you are feeling like your bushy brows are giving everything you need them to give. 

03

Polish, polish, polish!

Using an angle brush or flat brush and a brow color, use a small amount of product and tap off the excess. Start at the bottom of your brow and slowly begin to create the desired brow shape. Have your brush strokes flick upwards towards the top of the brow as you create the outline and work your way up the brow. This will darken the brow and fill it in. We used the Mehron Pro Brow Palette. Remember that it is easier to add product than it is to take it off. Use a gentle hand. 

04

Not twins!

If your brows are uneven, take the same brow color you were just using or a darker shade and work to create symmetrical brows. You can fill in the same spot on the other eyebrow as well to make sure the colors of each brow appear even. Clean up any product that could have gone above the brow with your fingers. Finally, take your waxed spoolie and brush your brows once more to blend in the color. Eyebrows are sisters not twins, so it won’t always be perfect!

05

Make‘em pop!

Define the area underneath your brows with some concealer. We used Nars Concealer. Taking the edge of your concealer brush and a small amount of product, place the product under the bottom of the brow. This will make your eyebrows pop! Blend out any visible lines with your fingers. You can also clean the top of the brow with the same concealer.

Subtle, easy, bushy brows await you! If you’ve been dying to show off your bushy brows, it’s never been easier than this. Practice makes perfect, if you don’t hit the nail on the head the first time around, erase and start over. Within no time you’ll have bushy brows galore! Easy peasy! Next up, take a look how to get natural full lips, HERE.
