Bridal Beauty: The Best Wedding Day Eye Shadows

Any bride will shine on her wedding day with the right eye shadows.

Great bridal makeup is all about the eyes. Three shades of shadow will shape the eye: highlight, midtone, and contour.


1. Highlight Shade

Apply a sparkly shade to the browbone and lid. Make sure to highlight the "V" on the inside corner of the eye by wrapping the color around that corner. This will really accentuate the shimmer and shine, and make smaller eyes seem larger.



2. Midtone Shade

Starting from the outside corner of the crease, with a soft matte tone, sweep the color across the inner corner of the eye and along the lower lashline (fading as you go inward) to create some subtle definition.



3. Contour Shade

Sweep this matte shadow over the midtone shade along the upper (and lower) lashline and into the crease.

Now that you've got the application know-how, you need to pick your shades. Lancome's National Artistic Director and makeup artist Ross Burton gave us his three favorite color combos to play up your personal bridal style. All Lancome's eye shadows are $15 and can be purchased on lancome-usa.com.

Classic Beauty

Soft pink and deep plum are light and fresh; plus, this combination looks great on almost all skin tones.

Glowing Girl

Pale gold and deep matte brown eye shadows create a rather radiant look. Together, these shades warm the complexion and enhance the eyes.

Drama Queen

Give off an edgier vibe with a silver metallic (look for one that doesn't have extra glitter) and rich black shadow combination. They'll create smoldering, dramatic, smoky eyes.
