Women just love a smokey eye…
When it comes to eye makeup, there is one common look most women love and that’s a smokey eye. Whether we love it in pictures on someone else or wear it regularly ourselves, we can’t get enough of this look! But how do you know if this is the right look for you on your wedding day? If you’re considering wearing a smokey eye makeup look you need to ask yourself these 2 questions first…
Question 1. Do I like a Smokey eye makeup look on others (i.e. pictures I’ve been saving of my favourite makeup looks) but never wear it myself because I’m a little intimidated by it? For example, you love this kind of look on Kim K.
If you answered yes to the question above, you likely won’t be happy with a smokey eye on yourself. Just because something looks good on someone else won’t necessarily mean it will suit you. Personally, I’m under the belief that any woman of any age can wear a smokey eye BUT there are different versions of smokey eyes and that’s key to choosing the right smokey eye look for you. Will a smokey smudgy black or charcoal grey look be suitable on your wedding day or is a softer version using browns a better choice for you? There are lots of versions of the smokey eye so maybe you should try something like this….

Question 2. Will I still feel like myself if I choose a Smokey eye for my wedding day?
If you answered no to this question then a smokey eye just isn’t for you! Don’t worry….there are lots of other options! Think about trying one of these instead…
