Yes, you can wear bold make-up looks for your wedding. Here are seven gorgeous catwalk trends to tempt you away from neutrals – and expert tips on how to ace them.
Look-at-me lashes Just when you thought your biggest mascara decision was whether or not to go waterproof, along comes Emilio Pucci and a catwalk full of carnival colours.
But while make-up artist Inge Grognard’s incredible Pucci look involved thick and heavily pigmented lashes, MAC senior artist Rebecca Butterworth recommends something more subtle: ‘Try deep jewel tones – the right shade will make your eyes pop.’ She suggests emerald or blue for brown eyes; aubergine or violet for green eyes; and bright blue for blue eyes.

See red! Yes, we’re talking about eyeshadow. Because while red eyes may not be an obvious contender for bridal beauty, this look stormed the A/W17 catwalks, appearing at Kenzo, Versus Versace and House of Holland, and is proving a hit on Instagram, with over 32,000 tags so far. ‘One thing that’s clear is that red has migrated from its typical placement on the lips,’ says make-up artist Val Garland.
For a bridal look, the pros recommend choosing a similar shade that’s more forgiving – such as Gigi Hadid’s burgundy eyes at Anna Sui (above left) or a wash of pretty pink, à la Bora Aksu (above). Alternatively, try copper: ‘This is perfect for all skintones and gives a more wedding-appropriate take on the trend,’ says Tania Grier, Sisley’s UK make-up artist ambassador.
