Hi, I'm Marie Mecham and I'm a makeup artist. Today I'm going to talk to you about how to apply bridal eye makeup for peach skin. The tools that we will need are eyeliner, waterproof eyeliner, an angled tip brush, a defining brush, a rounded tip brush for blending and eye shadow. The first thing we're going to do is apply our eyeliner. We're going to start on the outside corner of the eye and bring it in. You want to make sure you use waterproof eyeliner because you want it to last all day long and you don't want it to smudge if you cry. As you bring it to the inside corner of the eye make the line a little bit thinner, you're just going to use short dashes and it's okay if the line's not perfect because we're going to use our angled tip brush to smooth the line. Next you're going to take your angled tip brush and we're going to go over that line to make sure it's nice and smooth. You're just going to go directly over the line you made with your eyeliner and just connect all the little dashes you made and make sure it's nice and smooth and even. On the outside corners you're going to angle your angled tip brush upwards to have a little upward facing wing. Next we're going to take our rounded tip brush and our eye shadow and we're going to take a highlight color, this lightest color on the end here and we're going to highlight underneath the brow on both sides and then also the inside corner of the eye. Next we're going to take our defining brush and I'm going to use just a nice neutral brown color because when you do bridal makeup you want it to be something that's timeless that will look good forever. So you apply what looks good on you, not what's trendy in the season right then. So I'm going to take this nice neutral brown color and I'm going to start on the outside corner of my eye and bring it in across the crease and down along the lash line. Just make sure you blend it really well. Next we're going to take the rounded tip brush again and I'm going to use a highlight with a little bit of a pink hint to it just because I think that that looks good on my skin tone. So I'm going to take that and I'm going to put that on the inside corner of the eye to the middle to meet up with where I put the neutral brown color and this is just going to help your eye look more open and define your eye so that it looks really timeless and really natural but also enhances your eyes and to finish the eye look we're going to apply some mascara. When you apply mascara you want to do two or three thin coats as opposed to one thick coat. That will prevent your eyes from getting too clumpy and your eyelashes will just be nice and smooth and long. So as you apply your mascara, you're going to start at the base of the lash and just kind of wiggle it upwards to separate the eyelashes and give a nice even coverage. And you're also going to do your bottom lashes. Remember you're going to have your wedding pictures for a long time and lots of people are going to look at them so you want to make sure that when you do your makeup it's something that's timeless and not too over the top. I'm Marie Mecham and thanks for watching.
