When it comes to your wedding, eye makeup can be a tricky subject. Brides need to rely on makeup that will last all day. Plus, with tears of happiness that may or may not decide to make an appearance, no bride wants to deal with running mascara or eyeliner. Here are a few wedding eye makeup tips to help you get a perfect look that will last.
Consider Eyelash Extensions for Your Wedding Day
Lash extensions allow you to have long, gorgeous lashes – without the worry of your mascara running if you happen to get emotional on your special day. I used to look down on eyelash extensions because, honestly, I really liked my natural lashes and thought many of the sets of lash extensions looked fake. Nowadays, you can get lash extensions that look completely natural and blend with your real lashes.
I finally tried extensions last year. Let me tell you, I am absolutely sold. You can create just about any look you like. There are all sorts of lengths, shades, types and shapes. Just be sure to go to someone who has a lot of experience and can apply them correctly. And, for your bridal look, someone who can do more of a natural looking application. Also, we recommended you try them out a month or so before your wedding so you have time to get used to them beforehand.

Choose a Fool-proof Eye Liner
There are a number of eye liners that will look beautiful for your wedding day makeup look. The point here is to choose wisely. Many liners fade quickly or wash away easily with just a little moisture. You want a liner that won’t budge. Quite a few eye liner formulas that will do the trick. A waterproof liner may be a good option. Or, if you know of a liner you love that doesn’t run, that may be your best bet.
Our recommendation? MAC’s Liquidlast Liner is a lifesaver. It does require an oil-based makeup remover when you’re ready to take it off, but until then it stays put. It comes in a variety of shades. Our favorite is Point Black for a more classic look, or Coco Bar or Brassbeat for a more natural look. When I spend a day at the lake, I pair this MAC Liquidlast eye liner with lash extensions for an all day look that won’t wash away, even with a cannon ball into the water.
When your bridal makeup is the least of your worries, you can spend your energy on more important things, like debating with your mom regarding her potential mother of the bride outfits. And we all know, with many a mother, that is no easy task!
