Thanks to its versatility and great compatibility with almost any skin tone and eye color, metallic makeup is also a great makeup style for the one special day a woman has in her life. Among all the metallic eye makeup options, the silver one seems to have been invented especially for the brides-to-be, since this color does reflect the purity and the innocence of the bride’s nature and makes a great play pair with the ethereal white gown she wears. With a metallic silver bridal makeup look you can never ever err and the maximum gorgeous appearance of yours on the big day is guaranteed for sure! This is one of the primary reasons why we decided to present this metallic silver bridal makeup tutorial for those brides-to-be, who prefer to do their special day makeup on their own!
How to Do Metallic Silver Bridal Eye Makeup
As always, for a successful outcome you need to have really high quality makeup products and makeup brushes at hand and also practice your makeup application skills a bit before the big day arrives. Besides it’s surely a good idea to try this makeup look days prior your wedding ceremony to see whether the style matches your face and your nature and whether this is what how you imagine your special day look to be like. Only after this, you can feel confident and relaxed about the show-stopping look of yours on this special day!
So in order to copy this look, you’ll need to get the following beauty products:
• Makeup base, foundation and concealer
• Blush (bronzer is optional)
• Eyebrow kit
• Eye primer and a white base
• Eyeshadows in metallic gray, brown and black
• An aqua spritz
• Black eyeliner
• Black mascara
• False eyelashes
• A peachy pink lip liner and a lipstick in a matching color
• Makeup brushes
So, as you have all the products at hand, follow the steps presented below!
Step 1: Create that ideal bridal complexion by treating your face with a scrub and a toner before the makeup application. Then pass to the makeup base and the foundation, making sure you have picked the correct one according to your skin type and tone, which also has a highly resistant function. This day you are going to sweat and maybe cry from emotions, therefore securing a resistant makeup base is a must. You need to use concealer on the problem areas that need to be camouflaged carefully. Then apply a gentle blush tone on your cheekbones. If you are a fan of the sun-kissed effect of the skin, using a bronzer to sculpt the face is a good idea for you. Only be sure not to overuse this product not to spoil the natural glow of your face. At the end, you may also use a makeup fixator to secure the long lasting effect of your look.
Step 2: It’s time to define your beautiful facial features and eyebrows play an important role to this end. If nature hasn’t granted you with the perfect bushy brows, you need to use the best eyebrow kit ever to create ones. You can be guided by our step-by-step eyebrow tutorial. Here, we have used Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Dark Brown.
Step 3: Prepare your eyelids for the makeup application by using an eye primer first (Too Faced Shadow Insurance). Next, apply a white base all over your lid (NYX Jumbo Pencil).
Step 4: As a first step for your eye makeup, apply a light shimmery metallic gray eyeshadow all over the lid (from the Sleek Vintage Romance Palette). Now, spray your brush with MAC Fix + aqua spritz and apply a gray loose pigment for extra shine (Sleek Eye Dust in Innocence).
Step 5: Start defining the outer crease of the eye with a brown eyeshadow (Truffle from Anastasia Beverly Hills Lavish Palette). Using a warmer brown tone blend the fake crease line (Sienna from the same palette). Lastly, for a more defined crease apply black eyeshadow (Black Diamond from the same palette).
Step 6: Apply the same black eyeshadow on the lower lid and blend it with the warm brown tone you have used on the upper lid before. Next, apply black eyeliner on your upper lid for a more dramatic look.
Step 7: Apply a few coats of black mascara now. Use false eyelashes to boost the mysterious look of your makeup (Salon Perfect #19).
Step 8: As a last step for your stunning bridal makeup, apply a medium peachy pink lip liner and then use a lipstick that matches the lip pencil perfectly. In this look we have used a mix of lipsticks from Makeup Atelier Paris lipstick palette #5.
And voila! Your super-dramatic and whimsical metallic bridal makeup look is ready to charm your groom and all the invited guests! After all, this is the main goal of all the brides-to-be!
