Makeup for Every Eye Colour

Surprise, surprise brown eyeshadow or soft brown liner flatters every eye colour depending on the undertone of brown you use (warm or cool tone). If you don’t wear eye makeup daily, this is a natural and soft option that looks great on everyone.  

If You’re Eloping...  

We get it, big weddings and all eyes on you aren't for everyone. This special day should be shared with just you and your partner. Should you choose to have the occasion super intimate and do your own makeup worry not because you're an artist!

Want to elevate up your everyday? The easiest way is with some lashes! The Effortless Kit or Magnetic Lash Kit is travel-friendly and has EVERYTHING you need to apply lashes easily.  

Classic Bridesmaids Look 

Bridesmaids are complimentary to the glowing bride on her special day. The makeup look should be elegant, suit everyone's features but not overstep the main event. A combination of pinks and taupes are often popular because they suit everyone's eye colour and skin tones.   

Our Effortless Kit features a mini applicator, adhesive and best-selling Would I Lie? Lash, making it a top choice for bridesmaids gifts!

Makeup for Wedding Guests 

Maybe you stumbled upon this list to get inspiration... even if it's not YOUR day! Of course, you never want to take attention away from the bride herself, but you can definitely feel glam. A classic makeup look with rosy cheeks, glossy lips and a soft half lash are very trendy at the moment. Get this look with an Effortless half lash like Short & Sweet or Mini Me.
