When you're looking for the perfect Wedding or Bridal Makeup look, The smokey eye is a classic. It's beautiful, timeless, and never goes out of style.
A professional Makeup Artist that heavily influences my work is English Artist Lucie MUA. She has absolutely perfected the smokey eye and I love it so much. Her artistry motivates me to work toward perfecting my version of her look for my clients.
I actually think the reason I gravitate so much toward her looks is the fact that the Bride's still look like themselves after she's done. My sister did my makeup on my Wedding day and it was absolutely perfect. I distinctly remember telling her "I want to look pretty, but I want to look like myself." I thought then and now that the face you have is just exactly what makes you beautiful.
Ok back to the smokey eye...
The reason the smokey eye works so well on so many people is it flatters the natural eye shape of each person. Highlighting your naturally occurring features is the absolute best way to get a natural, timeless look and in my opinion, the most flattering look. The smokey eye can be tailored to any color scheme, and when used with contrasting colors, can add intensity and drama.
I have fallen in love with British Makeup Artists. I find their work to be the most flattering for photography makeup because it looks glamorous and natural at the same time. And Lucie is no exception.
