I get this question a lot along with, “What is your favorite eyeshadow palette/ brand?” and the truth is I have so many favorites from all different brands! Eyeshadow can be fun but shopping for eyeshadow can sometimes be overwhelming. There are so many options, colors, and brands on the market, how do you choose the right eyeshadow for you on your wedding day?
The color of the eyeshadow is important, but I don’t want to dive too deep into that subject because honestly that could be a separate blog on its own! I will say that going for neutral Earthy tones is the safest option because they are universally flattering on everyone and photograph beautifully. Most Brides request neutral brown tones in their crease and outer corner. I would also recommend grabbing a couple of cool AND warm eyeshadows because if too many warm shadows are used, they can photograph orange. If too many cool tones are used they can photograph muddy-looking. A balance of both warm and neutral tones will give you the best result!
The quality of the eyeshadow is important as well, and a good quality shadow is going to make your life SO much easier. Trust me, I’ve learned from experience. Now am I saying to go and invest in the most expensive eyeshadow palette on the market? Absolutely not. What I am saying is to do your research and do not be afraid to experiment with different brands of eyeshadows. A good quality eyeshadow will not be chalky, will have very minimal fall out (eyeshadow falling under the eyes), and will be very pigmented and easy to blend. These shadows will appear rich in photographs and will allow for a faster application.
So what are my favorite brands of great quality eyeshadows for Brides? Drumroll please… Charlotte Tilbury, Natasha Denona, MAC, and Tarte. These brands all have a wide range of eyeshadows with Earthy neutral tones, they are very pigmented, have minimal to no fallout, they are so buttery soft, and they apply and photograph beautifully. I know that the brands I love may not work for everyone so like I mentioned before, don’t be afraid to experiment!
